New Hair New Hair!!

My local hairdressers was doing a deal where you take along your own box of hair dye, they match up the colour and give you a choice of a few, and then dye your hair in the chosen colour.  Just for £15!  Of course I snapped up an appointment quickly.  I always dye my own hair because I'm happy with the way it looks when I do it, but also because having your hair done at the hairdressers is very expensive, especially for a poor student like me.  But at just £15 I couldn't resist!

I went along there today with the intention of becoming blonde.  But after the advice of the hairdresser I chose a coppery/reddish colour.  It's quite different to my usual mahogany colour, but I quite like it.  It just needs some getting used to!  I got quite a bit chopped off the bottom too.

This is what my hair looked like before.

I'm very sad summer is coming to an end.  Not that we've had much of a summer here in England this year but now it's getting colder I can start wearing boots and warmer footwear which I love.  I wore my Converse today which are one of my favourite pairs of shoes but I don't wear them very often so thought I would give them an airing.

Top: Topshop
Hoodie: Republic
Jeans: River Island
Converse: Were a present 

 Last night I went karting which was a lot of fun!  Although now today I am quite achey.  Tonight I am off to see Total Recall.  Wednesday night I went to see The Expendables 2.  Tomorrow I am off to watch some paralympics.  Sunday I have a family dinner and then am off to move into my new University house.  I'm so busy, busy, busy and I still need to do some last minute packing for Uni, preparing for my placement and complete an assignment! AHHHHH!!

  7. Your hair looks great! Are you planning to go blonde in the future or do you like this colour?


    1. I would like to go blonde in the future. But the hairdresser said because of my hair type I would need to dye it a dark brown first and then keep getting lighter and lighter each time. That sounds like a very long process and I am quite impatient. I would like to try it sometime though to see what I would look like blonde :)

  8. i love the colour :) perfect shade for autumn! x
