Stand out in the crowd

It’s boring being normal, I haven’t ever wanted to fit in… OK at school I did, didn’t we all though.

I don’t want to be a sheep and follow whatever trend is in fashion this spring /summer. Having exactly the same outfit on as someone else around your neck of the woods doesn’t scream individuality. I mean if you want to then that’s up to you, but me personally I like to be totally unique.

Here below you can see I’m not your average norm.

I cut my hair off and donated it to the little princess trust and its going to take forever to grow and colour won’t stay in at the mo cos of my health so I got these 3 wigs on amazon.

I don’t even mind that people will probably be able to tell its not my hair.

It’s all about being your own person and that’s what I’m doing 😊

Please don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone.

You may surprise yourself.

So this happened today

I have been growing my hair for the last 2 years and got it the longest its been since i was about 12.

I had a throwback photo come up on my facebook memories a couple weeks ago and it was me with super short hair. I saved the pic to my phone and went back to it a few times to admire it. It really did used to suit me. Could i pull it off again?

My hair today went from this length…

Then put in pigtails and snipped off.

A whole ten inches. I have decided to donate it to the little princess trust to help them to make a wig for children with cancer. It’s such a worthy cause.

Here’s my new hair do courtesy of my sister – who also happens to be a hairdresser.

It’s one thing i can add to my random act of kindness list 💕

What’s a random act of kindness you’ve done?

Hair transformation – Before and after

Today I thought I would take you on a hair journey…

This is from December last year where I couldn’t tie my hair up and the highlights were kind of ombre

Then I remember letting my hair colour grow out and in April/May time I treated myself to some highlights and I could actually wear my hair in a tiny ponytail. I did like it blonde for the summer, gives it that sunkissed look

Then I became ill over the summer and didn’t do anything to it apart from wash it and when it got long enough I was able to plait it which is always a hair goal in itself.

Once I got home from the hospital in the middle of November I picked up a box of hair dye from boots and because they didn’t have the colour I was after I just got a semi that was meant to be amber and came out quite brown and after about 6-7 washes was fading quite a bit.

Its now a few weeks before Christmas and I decided to brave it with the colour that I originally wanted to do it…

I ordered it on Boots.com apparently our local store is too small to stock all colours so bear that in mind if you don’t see the colour you want.

I am just keeping my fingers crossed it stays this colour

Loreal Preference – Brooklyn Copper Auburn just in case you were wondering.

Til next time….

Hair look of the day

Just because the summer is over doesn’t mean I can’t have beachy waves in my hair.

Woke up feeling like I needed a bit of volume in my hair so here’s the simple thing I did

With the help of my Babyliss cordless tongs and the ever so faithful Elnett hairspray and a little concentration.

I was able to get some pretty waves going on. Both these were purchased at Boots I think my tongs were £19.99 and the hairspray a little over a fiver.

Not much of a change just a ringlet here and there and a quick run through my hair with my fingers to so it didn’t look too fancy.

They lasted all day which impressed me.

So there you go…. a short but sweet post I wrote when I just couldn’t sleep.

Til next time…
