Spring Pastel Hair Inspiration

Posted on March 12, 2014

Hi Guys!

For maybe the last year or so I’ve been obsessed with dyeing my hair purple, well lilac to be more specific. Unfortunately I’ve been advised it would be best not to dye my hair yet as it’s not in great condition, it was falling out most of last year due to stress and it’s only just started growing back. I still keep thinking about it though and really want to take the plunge, I just feel like I need a change. At least I have my fairly vast selection of wigs to keep myself entertained with in the mean time 🙂

I still keep scouring the internet for hair colour inspiration, and I’ve just found the exact colour I want – see below top left. It’s a kind of muted greyish lilac. While I was looking around I thought I’d put together some of my favourite looks for a hair inspiration board –

OOTD and a New Haircut at Penthouse Hair!

Posted on January 14, 2014

Hi Guys!

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know I was very excited about getting my hair cut at Penthouse Hair in Norwich on Sunday. They kindly contacted me (and a few others) offering a cut, style and blow dry – I’ve needed my hair cutting for a while as it’s such a state so I was really looking forward to see what I’d come out with! I met up with Dee from deesbeautifullife for our hair cut in the morning, then an afternoon of shopping and visiting Funky Skincare at The Forum! I’ll be blogging separately about this as there’s too much to fit in one post!

So this is me before the hair cut, this is an average day to day outfit for me – I’m wearing an aztec snood from ASOS, cardigan from ebay, vest from H&M, skirt and leggings from ASOS and boots from H&M courtesy of Bloggers Edit.

I haven’t worn my hair down for at least a year and a half now because it’s been falling out due to stress. This is most obvious at the front unfortunately, so I can’t even use extensions to cover it up, as there’s not enough hair to clip them on to! It’s finally stopped falling out now but I know it’s going to take a loooong time to grow back again. So every day I just tie it up and put a headband on to try and hold down the sticky out bits! And as you know, I wear wigs for going out and special occasions 🙂

Sunday was a lovely crisp day, I met with Dee and we walked to Penthouse Hair. We were greeted by the lovely Sharon and Rachael, and after a long discussion with Sharon (who is an expert in hairloss, just what I needed!) we decided it was best to go with a simple short bob, and I was advised to be patient with my hair and let it grow. I was so fed up with my hair, I was keen on having a drastic cut and dye (possibly lilac) but Sharon advised dyeing my hair would be the worst thing to do to it, as it will weaken it and cause more breakage. So I’m going to try to look after my hair more now and on Sharon’s recommendation I’ll soon be purchasing some Nioxin products to help my hair grow.

I had a good trim and my hair was styled into a short bob with a side fringe. Sharon used Tigi products including BedHead Biggie After Party which is a smoothing cream to tame frizz and flyaways, and Superstar Queen For A Day thickening spray, as well as Schwarzkopf Guardian Angel heat protection spray.

And this is what I ended up with! What an improvement hey! This is the first time I’ve been able to wear my hair down in such a long time, it felt great!

And this is the front (sorry for the terrible face!) I’m really pleased with my new hair, it’s just long enough to tie up too which is handy! Thank you so much Penthouse Hair! You can check out Dee’s blog post here and see her awesome new hair cut!

Look out for my next post on Funky Skincare coming up shortly 🙂
