Going Lighter for Summer

7 November 2017

After months of procrastinating, I finally decided it was time for a hair change.

I’ve been wanting lighter hair for a while – light, but NOT TOO LIGHT!

I had balayage years ago, and I’ve lightened my whole head of hair before too. I wanted something in between. But I didn’t really know how to explain it to my hair stylist.

And at the same time I didn’t want to walk away with an expensive hair treatment, but look like I had nothing done?!

I also want to point out that I have quiet a few strands of grey coming through, so I go into the salon every 4 weeks to get my roots done. So the new hair colour will have to work with that.

I went to the team at Curi Hair in Subiaco, and very inarticulately explained what I wanted.

My hair stylist said they were going to give me a semi-balayage with some spread-out highlights, with a bit of medium brown colour for my roots, and an intense ash toner to keep it a warm brown, not a bright orange.

The whole process took about 3 hours in the chair.

The result was gorgeous! I’m so happy with it!

I love that there are light bits and dark bits, and it’s all scattered around and a bit uneven.

I was told that I have to come in again in 3-4 weeks to get more ash-coloured toner (colour) put in, or the colour will fade and my hair will look orangey. I’ll probably do a hair oil treatment, or keratin treatment to keep my hair soft, shiny and smooth too.

Nothing like a new hairdo to welcome the new season!
