Yes! I am finally sort of back! I am getting my health on track (or trying desperately), my foot is in a proper cast and I find out on Thursday if it is healed enough to be removed and I’m actually adjusted to my painkiller patch. I am full of blog ideas and it’s just getting them into blog format and setting up a queue (well, writing them. I never was a queue kinda gal!).
Now. Let’s put this to you all straight, I am incredibly absent minded, I lose everything. I take my glasses off every evening before sleep (and go BLIND!) and then somehow manage to lose them even though I put them in the same place….just because I can’t see worth a damn. So this sounds like the perfect candidate for at-home hair bleaching, right? TOTALLY! I SWORE I would never do it…but of course I did. And I promised myself I would remember when I began bleaching so it would all go perfectly…and then I forgot when I set it and fell asleep. Way to go, Sara!!! So..I accidentally bleached the pigment out of the bottom 3/4 of my hair, I dyed my hair with permanent dye 5 times in 3 days in an attempt to re-pigment it (even though I know this isn’t how to re-pigment my hair) and of course it didn’t work. So I finally tried a semi-perm dye, Crazy Colours “Vermillion Red” which actually worked like a charm for 2 weeks before the colour fell out of the non-pigmented parts and ended up being the colour I wanted all along! But I decided it would be best to cut off the damaged parts instead of attempting to re-pigment and just start all over again.
This ended up being a super brilliant idea because it is SO HOT AND STICKY in London and having no hair on my neck? Godsend!!!
I am ridiculously in love with it, it’s quite short in the back (cutting out the bleach mistakes!) and on side and sort of a curly mop top and free-cut curls on the side. I had the privilege of seeing the Creative Director of Vidal Sassoon Covent Garden and I could not be more satisfied with the cut or the cutter. He was absolutely amazing and made me feel right at home even though I did not go to my usual beloved Environment Salon on Duke Street (behind Selfridges) because I knew I wanted to change my hairstyle and figured that going somewhere new to someone who didn’t know me would be the best way to get that change I desired. I couldn’t stay in my comfort zone and get any of my “usual” styles because this person didn’t know any of them! It was a brilliant time. Now I’m torn between salons in the future!! It even makes my uber round face less…round!
So much to say, just need the time to write it all down! Hopefully I’m back for good (although I should be moving ASAP so there might be another break. As ever, I will keep you posted!)
What do you think!? It’s my most drastic hair yet!!
