No more messing on the to bang or not to bang front, I went for the chop.
It was not just the fringe that made a change but my colour needed sorting. I was completely over the dip dye, Initially I loved it, but within a week or so I found that my ends looked completely ratted-out. Right now I'm going through a phase where I'm feeling very chilled about my appearance, dried-out ends are not causing sleepless nights, however, there was no need for me to punish myself either.
I popped into Remy Leicester my go-to hair salon and spoke to my pal/stylist Blake. We decided to go for the colour fringe combo plunge... Eek. I was abso terrified to go back down the fringe route, but was at the same craving un petit thrill & of course a change. Halleluiah to that (change).
Hello March 2010! As soon as the cut/dye was complete, it was as though I had slipped right back in time and was back to my Pre-Britney-Moment self. Such a weird shock to the system! I think I was a little hasty with taking two hair steps at once, my girl Erin did a good job at breaking this down to me, explaining that if I had just done the fringe or just the colour I would be fine with it, it's just the combination that is overwhelming and I think she is right. Sigh & breathe.
I think I'm happy with my new-but-old-look, I was a little shocked with how dark it looked so I whipped on some fake tan to ease the transition and now things feel more comfortable.
It's odd that an old look can feel so alien once new again, maybe it's not the hair that's the problem but the memories associated with... Hmmm. Time to make some new one's then, non?
So here's a darker, fringed moi... What do you think guys?? Oui ou Non? I am convinced that my face is looking ultra round and my features have now sunk into oblivion, a kind of playdough mess of a face. However, I'm also hoping that this is just my body dysmorphia.
Big thanks to Blake and the gorge Meg from Remy for sorting out my locks, my confusion is down to me not them! Love those guys always...
