Just a quick impromptu post, as I’ve ventured completely out of my comfort zone and dyed my hair something other than blonde! Can you believe it? I mentioned it to my hairdresser Kim and after much deliberation, I said sod it and booked an appointment.
This is what my hair looked like before we started. When styled, it looked pretty good. I had an easy to manage ombré look going on. It was quite warm in tone, so we knew it would be a pain in the bum to get what I wanted.
I had my appointment booked for exactly a week later. She used a silver coloured toner mixed with a violet one, hoping this would get rid of those pesky warm colours. I believe sh left it on for around 20ish minutes. This is what I ended up with (pics below). Kim did say not to worry about how dark it was when she first rinsed it, as the colour would fade quickly as I washed it. These photos were taken straight after colour application and it’s not so purple in real life as it appears in these pics. Although it wasn’t exactly what I was going for, I ended up with something that I would never have the guts to go for if it hadn’t happened by accident. So thanks to Kim for that!
Apologise for the lack of colour info in this post. I have asked Kim to let me know the specific colours used, but she unfortunately hasn’t got back to me at the time of writing.. But if you have any questions, please leave me a comment or ask me on twitter and I will do my best to answer.
As always, thank you so much for reading! Let me know your colour experiences!
