Hey, guess what?! I’ve got new hair!!! You have no idea how long it’s been since I’ve been able to say that….here’s a secret for you, I haven’t had my hair cut in over a year! Last time I went they cut waaay too much off and I’ve been scared to go back ever since! In the end I caved and used a voucher I had been given by ladbrokes a while back (read that post here) because I really wanted to try out a reverse-ombre dip dye!
I’ve never dyed my hair in my entire life so I have to say I was pretty scared getting that done and the dreaded haircut all at once! The less said about the actual haircut the better (long story short, there was a power cut after I got the dye washed out of my hair, and I ended up with a haircut that lased literally two seconds and about 5 snips of the scissors, and unstyled poker straight hair to walk home with, which is literally my idea of hell!) But, despite the awful experience, I have to say I’m very happy with the dye! I went for a light coppery brown dip-dye at the ends, and I love it! It’s more subtle than I expected it to be, and I think I might be addicted to dip-dye now!!
To celebrate (and to fix my ridiculous Avril Lavigne-straight locks) I thought I’d try a bit of styling with my Yogi hair straighteners which I’ve been meaning to blog about for ages! I haven’t had a pair of straighteners since my GHDs perished in a tragic accident (read: I trod on them) so I was super happy to recieve these ones! Not only are they cute and pink, they work perfectly for how I like to use my straighteners, which is – ironically – for curling! The mini width of these makes them a perfect straightener-come-curling wand, and by wrapping your hair around them they create a lovely loose wave which is perfect for a beachy look! hey’re perfect for me because they are so easy to use. They heat up extra quick and create a great look in just minutes, perfect for me and my lazy hair ways! Definitely the best non-ghd straightener I have tried, that’s for sure!
Check out the whole range of Yogi products on their website; I’m itching to try the curling wands next! And look out for my outfit posts soon when you’ll be able to see my new hair in all it’s glory!
