Bowie Inspired Hair – I was a 90s glam rock pixie

As a Creative Arts student in the 90’s I didn’t know I had ‘Bowie hair’ until one of my lecturers pointed it out. I won’t deny it was often red. And short, which was both ‘in’ at the time, due to the ‘encouragement’ (peer pressure) of a boy with a thing for pixie cuts. I’m late to the party but a […]

Life Lately… Summer’s End

This summer’s been far from uneventful. I’ve been busy with job interviews, grand days out, and the odd gig for good measure. Taking stock I’ve been… Enjoying: working in a University environment for the first time in years Waiting: for payday before I buy anything Hoping: I’ll be temping for more than a few weeks Liking: […]

Just Peachy Hair- transitioning to blonde

I’ve been on a bit of a journey with my hair these past couple of months. Despite yearning for raven locks since January and sporting ruby-red tones in their stead, feeling better post op and seeing summer on the way has left me feeling ready for change. I thought a hair cut might do the trick. I’d been growing it and had some residual […]

Happy Hair Colour Accidents: New Year- New Hair 2016

It’s becoming a tradition that  I change my hair for the holidays.  Xmas and New Year can be a bit emotional and I often feel low. But it helps to remember these feelings are temporary. Now I’m aware of my mid-winter ‘wobble’ I anticipate it. Now I change my hair on purpose, not in the emotional knee-jerk/radically irreversible way I used to. This […]

How not to dye your hair purple

Let this serve as a lesson to me about the difference between can and should. After a period of feeling disappointed with blonde hair I took the plunge and died my hair red. It’s been a light orangey copper shade, (not a pillar box red which I’ve had before) and I’ve been really enjoying it. I have […]

Red wash out dye on Blonde hair

Blonde but not really feeling it

Do Blondes really have more fun? Lately I’ve not been feeling it. I managed to postpone my ‘new year hair wobble’ until february this year when full of anxiety and self-doubt I dyed it brown – my uncertainty colour. I had instant ‘dyer’s remorse’ and spent spring gradually lightening it to the ash blonde I had […]

Pink Holiday Hair

Pink Holiday Hair & Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome to my first post of 2015, I thought I’d celebrate by sharing some pics of my pink Holiday Hair! I’m notorious for making terrible hair decisions in January. I don’t know if it’s because my winter S.A.D is in full swing but I often feel down around Xmas and New Year resulting […]
