new hair

I've not had my hair cut properly in a long time, the last time I had a proper cut was the week before I started college in 2009! Since then I've had a trim a few times and that's about it. My hair was so so dead, my split ends had split ends! and I've bleached and dyed it god knows how many times, so today I got a proper hair cut. When I looked into the mirror afterwards it was actually shorter then I thought it was going to be, but I'm so happy with it! It feels so healthy and light now. A lovely lady came round to do my mums and my hair, which I much prefer since hair dressers make me really anxious.  I took some before and after photos so I could see how much had gone and thought I'd share them with you. (ignore my face)
My hair reached to my waist down my back.
Hands in the same place, so quite a lot was cut off! But my hair grows fast, so we'll be back there in no time ;)
What I asked for: I pointed to where I wanted it cut to (about boob level) and then I asked for an featherd type shape in the back, one layer and feathering around the face. Also, the pink has faded quite a bit now but Schwarzkopf are bringing out three new colours to their brights range, I currently use raspberry rebel, but one of the new colours coming out is shocking pink, so I will definitely be using that when it comes out, it looks amazing!
Short post for today, just wanted to document my first haircut in four years, it's not drastic but a change for me :) In face when I looked in the mirror I thought,' hell, I look like I did when I was 16,' which is both good and bad haha. I can't wait to curl it and see how it looks :)
Do you enjoy going to the hair dressers? What's your current style?

  1. That is a big decision, I had my hair cut really short but thank goodness it's growing back long, I love long hair, theres so much more you can do with it! x


    1. Yea, I haven't had it sholder length since I was about 8, never again haah X

  2. I'm just the same! I've not had mine cut for about a year now and the hair around the front of my face is actually singed from straightening it! I'd probably better get it cut soon haha. I really love what you've done with the ends of your hair, it looks so eye-catching and pretty :) x


  3. I get mine trimmed and coloured every two months. Generally I've had my hair to my shoulder but now I've been growing out and it's doing well. Getting it trimmed every two months also ensures that I don't end up with totally destroyed split ends either :)
    I got my hair done this past Saturday - had natural highlights put in which look really great. I love getting my hair done!

    I think your new hair looks even better; a small change is always good and I'm sure you can still do cool styles with it.
    Can't wait to see the new colour that you might put in ;)

    1. I think i'll be keeping up with the proper hair cuts from now on, can really tell a difference in my hair :) X

  4. I really like what you did here! The knit and the skirt look so cozy chic

  5. That is a lot of hair that you had chopped off, looks really lovely x
