Hey everyone! If you’ve been following my blog since the start you might remember that I’m not a redhead naturally, I’m a blonde! This was shocking to a lot of my followers on instagram, I was a little surprised when people were messaging me “wait you’re naturally blonde?” following my stories updates at the salon!
Yes — I’m a blonde!
When I was a kid I had platinum-white blonde hair but as I got older it darkened into a golden/dirty blonde. I was pretty sure that I would love going platinum and I was right! I’m so obsessed! My stylist told me that this will be low maintenance too, aside from a bit of purple shampoo once a week. She left my roots their natural colour so as it grows out it will look nice & natural. Now I can wait a year before re-dying!
This is what my hair has looked like for the past year. As it grew out I was starting to really hate the blonde roots with the red. It was a huge hassle to continually cover up the roots. You can see in this last picture that my roots were coming in super blonde and that the red had faded out quite a bit from the first pic.
This is why it’s surprising to me that most people didn’t know I’m a blonde, the roots are super obvious when you know they’re there!
Now let’s show you my new, lush platinum blonde!
I can’t get over how long my hair looks now! I don’t really know why it looks longer now that it’s blonde, she even trimmed off an inch of split ends and yet it looks four inches longer to me now. Maybe it’s the curls!
My stylist added a touch of lavender for a bit of dimension, it adds some icyness to the look. If you’re ever in Edmonton I highly recommend seeing Alex at QHairYEG. She’s a magician with hair and is the sweetest lady ever!
I feel like a porcelain doll! I was worried that the lightening process would fry my hair. I noticed that it’s holding styles better so there was probably a little bit of damage, but it still looks sleek and soft on camera. Now I need to learn to curl my hair properly!
