When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

My vibrant new hair!

Good morning all. Thought I'd pop on today to share my new hair pics with you. Those who know me well will know I rarely have a normal hair colour. It's always had an edge. Whether it's the cut or colour but I reckon I've pushed it to the far limits this time. My choice had my dad banishing me from the family home until it toned down!!! (No fear the banishment was soon lifted when I helped him with him Tablet & email!)

Before pictures.

You can see it's darker but with a lighter front/fringe.

So yesterday I went to my favourite local salon where Emily & Rhianna worked all afternoon. First Emily professionally cleansed my hair, removing the previous dye. Stripping it back to a soft copper/ginger. 

Then Rhianna applied red dye, plus some foils with a darker tone to create a soft veil down my longer side. Once that was done, she cut my hair back into the asymmetric style I love.

The result is brilliant. I'm now have vibrant bold red hair. It's a shame as it will fade quickly. Just happens once hair has been cleansed. But I can put another red on top as soon as it becomes too light for me. I will no longer have to dye my roots a darker colour (my natural hair has always been lighter than the dark reds, plus there's some grey.). If I didn't do that I'd have bright red roots with darker ends!!

Here's the finish!

Sorry I've no make up on! You can just make out that there is a slightly darker section across the front and down the long bit. It shows more in real life than in pics.

Here's a before and after comparison.  
So much lighter, brighter and bold. I've had great comments with everyone saying it suits me and my bubbly personality!

Hope you enjoyed my little hair share!
Take care Zo xx

I LOVE the color and cut. I wish I had hair that I could make it do this. Hahahaha! My hair is so very fine and when it's short, it's flat as a pancake and I don't have time before I go to work to mess with it too much so I wear it in a ponytail or bun or something like that. ;)
