June is here and the neons are out (courtesy of Motel) along with a bit of sun, so obviously it was time to have my summer hair refresh. I'm literally the biggest sucker for a seasonal hair change so as soon as I knew I was coming back home this weekend I booked in with my trusty salon, Take 2. I hadn't had my hair done since the last chop and change to the ombre bob back in January and unsurprisingly it was getting quite long, faded/rooty and hard to manage. I did really love my new year style though, so this time I just went back to collarbone length with a blunt cut, face framing bangs and a few subtle softer layers to add volume. My lovely hairdresser Abbie was impressed with how much my hair condition had transformed since she first cut all my straggly over bleached ends off and even used the words silky, thick and healthy to describe it, so it just goes to show what a good chop, bleach ban and a few hair masques can do! I've got to thank my Dove Style+Care heat protection too for effectively protecting my crazily frizzy locks from all the heat I have to use on it. I didn't actually need to have any extra blonde added as the colour of my ends had kept pretty well, so instead a light ashy brown was blended through the top and midlengths to match up my roots and define the ombre, then a purple toner was popped over the ends to freshen them up and make sure they stay nice and cool toned. Obviously I asked for the new do to be styled in my favourite messy curl fashion and voila- summer ready sunkissed hair that's super easy to style/maintain and smells seriously good (how do hairdressers do that?!).
Have you booked in for a summer hair style?
