So, I popped off to the hairdresser the other day for a cut since it's been about 2 months since I've had a proper trim! I will show you soon, but it's basically the same but a little shorter since I wanted to just tidy and sharpen the edges up. My hairdresser has just been tipping the very ends of my hair for about a year whilst I grew it and it had got very wispy and quite straggly looking. It's much nicer and blunter now. My fringe has also been cut back in.
Anyway, point of this post was to tell you I have an appointment booked in 3 weeks for finally getting a blond chunk in my hair! I've been wanting to do this for ages but wasn't sure how well it would work on my dyed black hair, which is very dark brown naturally anyway. I'm not going for the full streaky Daphne/Narcissa look but am hoping to just get a thickish panel underneath my top layer on the left side. I would like to have it right in the roots, a la Kate (I'm sorry I go on about her all the time, especially her hair, but I can't help it, I just adore her!) but it's just too impractical, and according to my hairdresser, would also require different types of dye near the scalp or something, since I will also be getting my black redone at the same time. I was originally wanting it quite white but have decided blonder would be better since I'm already worried about looking quite emo with it, and the whiter it is the more emo I will look! Ideally I would like it to look retro and not emo at all! I may just have to reconsider how I style my hair slightly I suppose. Overall I'm really excited and just hope it looks as awesome as the ladies above. It's probably the most drastic thing I've ever had done to my hair and whilst I am nervous I am also really looking forward to it.
I'm going to stop rambling now, because you can sense my excitement from my many exclamation marks. Has anyone done anything similar to their hair, and are you fans of the skunk look?!
