i've had bright blonde hair since i was 12. there was a brief spell when i went really dark, but that was a moment of stupidity i'd rather forget...anyway, i have always been a bleach blonde chick - but something in me was itching for a change. so...hello new hair!
whilst i have always loved blonde hair, it gets a bit samey after 8 years. styles change and people change, and i was itching for something different. blonde hair has served me well, and my new hair colour is still a darkish blonde - but i grew tired of roots and not realllyyy being able to wear the colour yellow. i decided after fangirling over cara delevigne's gorgeous natural blonde locks that it was time that i stepped down from the bright blonde podium, onto one that was a little more natural.
i won't lie - when the dye was on, it sure looked dark. in fact, it looked pretty black. alarm bells were ringing in my head - my little heart was going thumpthumpthump as i thought ohmygod i'm going to look like a goth, this is my horrible dark hair all over again! but, the hairdresser knew what she was doing, and when it was all dry it evolved into a gorgeous, dark ash blonde colour all over with blonde highlights underneath to lighten it up. i actually really really like it - it's a refreshing change to blonde all the time, and i wont have to worry about roots all the time :)
i'm so glad i made the change for once in my liiiiifeeee (hope you're singing man in the mirror in your head now...) hope you like it! xo
