H A I R : N E W - DO

With just under a year of hair growth, I finally was able to go to the hair dressers this weekend and get an actual style cut in! No more awkward hair in between stage of part mullet, part I don't know what the fuck. I now actually have some shape and some style. Winning.

I went to Cheynes Hairdressers in Brunstfield for the first time after finding out my previous hairdresser had up sticks for the Southern Hemisphere and the land of Oz! Going to a new hairdressers can be daunting especially as with my old hairdressers I had established an understanding that I'm pretty casual about chopping off my hair - see pixie cut of years gone by - or slabbing on some colour - see platinum pixie, red pixie, black... - he understood that I was open to ideas. My new hair dressers at Cheynes seems to be of the 'lets just cut it and it'll be cool' mind set as well. Excellent, I thought to myself.

The end result was a Lily Allen-esque bob with a full fringe. I love it! It's a wee bit interesting, not everyone has it and I finally have some length (not a great deal but it is there) to my hair. I see this being the haircut of choice for the foreseeable future. Strange thing is, I send Mama erratic glamour a photo of my new locks and she sent one back saying 'you look like that singer, lily something!' Weirrrrd... Mama eg knows where it's at clearly!

In terms of colour, I am thinking a rich red. I bought a Mahogany wash out colour to gauge it for now but I think a rich red would look really nice with the cut instead of my mousy brown tressles. Plus it means buying lots of lovely haircare products, Boots is 3for2 after all... The comb is just because I am going to try and keep my hair in tip top condition so wet hair shant be seeing a brush and it was 55p... Talk about throw back packaging. Garnier Ulitmate Blends Shampoo and conditioner with argan oil & cranberry in 90s package. Hellllo.
