Time for a change!

The evenings are lighter and the sun has been showing his face! Is it time for the chop or a new colour?

I've been growing my hair for the last two years and although I would have loved to hold onto it (split ends and all) I knew I needed to be brave a go for a change! Every day I get to create luscious long locks and sleek silky bobs for my clients where I get lots of ideas from the requests that they ask me to do. I have been loving the 'midi' cut recently which is a style that is inbetween a bob and hair below your shoulders. This style is popular with the lovely Alexa Chung and Kylie Jenner.

Yesterday I closed my eyes as Steph took the first chop of my hair and after worrying I'm so glad it's been lopped off! You get a funny feeling of liberation when you go for a big hair change! It's like burning your bra in a protest! 

Two of my other clients have gone for big changes with their hair recently. 

This is my friend Megan who has had naturally dark hair all her life! It's always so shiny and a lovely deep brown colour, but being a typical lady, Megan wanted to try out something new. For this look we also took inspiration from Kylie Jenner's new hair colour and after two bleaching sessions and 8 hours later we came out with Megan's new look! 

 For this I used the balayage technique with bleach and cling film. Toned afterwards to stop the glow you get after bleaching.

Today Eloise was very brave and went for an even bigger change! After thinking about it for a year we changed her bob into a short crop. I always ask how long a client has been thinking about making a big change as I'd hate for it to be a last minute decision and then wake up in the morning to a phonecall asking me to stick all their hair back on!!

This was the final result. I think it suits her so much and I'm sure Eloise is feeling very liberated :)

Is anyone else feeling brave and ready for a change?

Hope you enjoyed reading and have a lovely evening!
