New Hair – Warm Red-Brown

This year I decided (as a celebration now all my children are at school) to try and schedule a regular haircut/colour.  Go me! For the past 12 years, 6-7 months (even up to a year) between haircuts was the usual gap.  So the plan was to be realistic, and make time for a haircut every 3 months.  Well, by the time I got to it this time, I worked out it’s been 5 months since my last hair cut. Ha! So, not quite 3 months, but I’m getting there.

Oh, it feels great to get a fresh style and a pop of colour!  My awesome hairdresser knows how I enjoy a bit of colour but struggle to get to the hairdressers regularly, so she puts in under highlights so there’s no obvious regrowth, and a Demi-permanent on the top so the fade is gradual.  Works a treat!

The colour this time is a redish brown with red & golden highlights coming through underneath.  The cut is short enough so the style is easy to manage, a sweeping fridge shapes the face and the edges are a little edgy for a bit of fun. Edges are edgy. I’m sure I can write that better. Wait. The edges are funky. There you go.

I love it all.  Now, I’m trying to work out how to style it so it looks exactly like this again…

Until next hair cut sometime in the future.

When my 5-year-old son saw me in the afternoon he told me it looked like “Rock Star Hair” so here’s my coolest look.

    Looks awesome!

    I too am lucky to have two haircuts a year. In fact, before the last hair cut it had been about 18 months. I am aiming to try to get back within six months this time…

    It’s hard to make time for it isn’t it? Many people would say to me, “Wow, you’re growing your hair long,” and I was like, “No, it’s just I haven’t had time to go to the hairdresser.”


    I hope you can enjoy a haircut soon.
