I booked an appointment at my salon, and off they came... and despite the protestations, gasps and sighs of the woman watching me get my hair cut (to her I say: you ain't the one washing and styling it all, love) I couldn't be happier with the finished result.
The cut is mid-length, with subtle long layers added for extra bounce, and was inspired by my current beauty crush, Jenna Coleman. I've got rid of the ombré I had done last year by using Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color in 4.15, Iced Coffee; a warm, chestnut-chocolate hued dye... the conditioner in this is dreamy... hello shiny shampoo advert hair.
I know loads of you will be horrified I've hacked all my hair off, but using three hair elastics for a simple ponytail was getting rather annoying (#longhairproblems)... and combined with the twice-daily wrestle with a Tangle Teezer, the endless time it took to style and, finally, the loss of countless hairpins over the last few years, it was time to say sayonara.
My hair grows at an alarmingly speedy rate, so I just figured I'd go for the chop... and if I hated it, at least it would be back, fast. But I don't hate it... I love it, so no problemo.
Now excuse me whilst I go and find a swivel-ly desk chair to sit in whilst swishing my hair about... that's what they do in the adverts, right?
