With this in mind we spent a few hours working to achieve something a little more sun kissed (for those of you who might be wondering I booked my appointment with the lovely Max at Simon Webster Hair in Brighton). A balayage technique with a little dip dye thrown in, the colour lifted in just over forty minutes, before being toned to more caramel and honey hues.
Aside from a few areas that need to settle in or be toned down I'm over the moon with the result. When I curl my hair it looks super shiny and glossy, but this weekend I realised things get even better when left to fall loose with a middle part. I look a little like a Haim reject and I'm totally okay with that. It has a relaxed LA vibe to it (perfect given one of our potential travel locations this year!) that also fits in well with the whole 70's revival we currently have going on.
The best bit? My roots are still rather dark, creating a nice contrast between my natural hair and highlights - it also means I don't have to worry about roots and that's what it all comes down to really!
