My Hair History

My Hair History

So it's about darn time I got my hair redone. I've been growing my tresses out for a the good part of 6 months, partly as I was at a loss of what to actually do next with my hair! My natural hair is a sort of mid toned, neutral brown shade. I've toyed with the idea of going dark all over again but I think it's time to do one last blondie hurrah and add a little bit of colour in the process.

Over the years I've had everything from the iconic LLYMLRS Ombre hair, pink hair, purple, red and goodness knows what else. When I was younger I'd chop and change loads back in the day. I had black hair with a red side bit for the longest time during my teens, probably two years. It meant I could hide it for school but also have the colour show through at the weekends. I really liked my hair when it was the purple shade but from what I remember I don't think I had that very long. I think I went back to brown very quickly because it was to hard to keep up the exact shade I liked. My least favourite hair colour was black as didn't suit me at all and made me look so pale and washed out but that was all part of the scene-emo look back then! I thought I was SO COOl.

I'm teaming up with LIVE Colour to refresh my hair for 2015 and to help out with their 2015 Lookbook. We've created a super cool look which I cannot wait to debut! Im currently sitting on set as we film the look and Im beaming with excitement! We're creating a simple how-to which will be up on their Youtube channel soon! So definitely keep an eye out over the next few weeks, as Im going to be posting bits. To see more about my journey go to livecolor.co.uk.

  1. You're lucky your hair history is good. Mine would be way too embarrassing to put out there on the internet. Sheesh. Can't wait to see what your new hair update turns out to be! It will look good no matter what, I'm sure :)

  2. You were part of the reason why I ombred my hair back then, I absolutely loved the look and actually I'm pretty much in love with your latest hair, makes me want to dye mine! I'm just really curious how it's going to look on me :)

  4. You literally suit every single hair colour haha! I've honestly never dyed mine, crazy I know right?! I'm considering lightening the ends for the summer but I'm so worried I won't like it as I've never dyed it before, having naturally really dark hair and dark features I worry I just won't suit colour in my hair but hey ho I think it's finally after 18 years to have a little experiment with it this year, lovely post xx

  7. I love looking at posts about old hair styles, when I look back at mine I majorly cringe! I tried to dye the underneath of my hair blonde... it looked like a banana!

  17. I love the pink! I'm too scared to dye mine in the fear that I don't like it because I want to go dark brown. How do you keep your hair in good condition when dying it? (Someone let me know please!)

  33. Love these sorts of posts, it's so interesting to see how people's individual style changes as they grow - I think my favourite is your current style, or at least the one you've been wearing recently, it really suits you!

  36. I've always wanted to be daring with my hair but very am afraid to do anything to it! I have very dry and semi-thin hair so if I want to dye it, my hair becomes major dry and brittle. It sucks haha.

  41. I'm laughing - not at you at myself - the whole emo hair thing, I was so there with you.

    Swear down I once cut a faux-hawk into my hair - like I had a mohawk and long hair. Super cool.
    Hair was nothing back then, I'd cut a foot off and think nothing off it. Now, if more than an inch is going - I mourn the loss.
