It started as, what would you call it — not quite a celebration — more of an acceptance deal I made with myself when my youngest child started school. A regular hair cut seemed a fitting thing, considering during the years before my kids started school, a hair cut/colour was a rare annual (6 monthly at best) luxury. My haircuts are not as regular as I planned but I do find myself documenting each hair cut/colour. I like change.
This time, I decided to keep the length, rather than go with a long bob, so my hairdresser, Monique O’Rourke, did a trim, shaping the lengths slightly around the face.
I wanted a fresh colour before heading to a conference but I left it too late to for Monique to fit me in beforehand so I dyed it myself this time. I bought the brand that was on special at the time in a safe colour (L’Oréal Dark Golden Brown 4.3). It turned out well and I’m happy with it!
