Crossing over to the dark side

I'm a brunette!

As you well know I’m a little obsessed with getting my hair done. And I’m not afraid of a change. Except after growing my hair for nearly a year for our wedding, I have become quite attached to my long locks, and wasn’t ready to cut them off, but still felt like I needed a change.

Couple that with our upcoming 8 week trip to Europe and not wanting horrible regrowth half way through our trip and voila, my change would be darker locks!

So that’s what I did last week! I managed to freak myself out twice in the mirror after forgetting the following morning that for now, I was no longer a blonde!

Do you experiment with your hair? How many hair colours have you had over the years? Or do you prefer to keep it simple?!

Oh, and as always all my hair posts are dedicated to Kylie! xx

    Looks fantastic Ami!!
    When I was younger I experimented between dark blonde, light blonde, red, white blonde (and I mean my hair was WHITE – and it wasn’t nice!!), blonde with black streaks (skunk-like), blonde with purple, blonde with red, and the list goes on….
    BUT I have never ever been a brunette! It is something I would love to do though, but I am a little scared of the time it’d take to go back light blonde again if I don’t like it (or miss being blonde!)..
    Do you love it? Do you miss being blonde? I will, in some point in my life, must try the dark side…

    Looks fab-o! Love it!

    I went red once. Think: Dana Scully X-Files red. And you know what? I LOVED it. So did Hubby and everyone else. But the next time I got them to do it, they couldn’t get the colour right. So I was dark red/auburn, then almost brown, then another shade of red. I gave up and went back to blonde. Then when I was pregnant I stopped colouring my hair altogether (I think it’s fine to do it – I was just paranoid!), so for almost 6 or more years I was just a mousy colour. Not interesting at all! I love colours. I like a couple of different streaks too.

    Thanks Belinda!! I’ve been many colours too including so dark brown it might as well have been black as well as red, brown with purple streaks & of course blonde! For now I’m enjoying being a brunette but probably after our trip I’ll no doubt want some more blonde in there!

    The great thing about this colour is it’s a semi so it’ll slowly wash out and fade to a certain extent so it’ll be easier to go back to blonde. Maybe u could go darker for winter in a few months. You’ll have to post pics if u do it!!

    Oooh Dana scully red jodie!! Now that’s brave! What a shame u couldn’t keep the colour! Eek no hair colouring when pregnant would have been hard!! I’ve already checked for future reference with my hairdresser!! Apparently coz I don’t have colour painted on my scalp it’s all ok.

    You’ll have to dig up some red hair pics for us!! x

    I’ve never been into colouring my hair, but I have experimented with length.

    I had it cut REALLY short and kept that going for about five years. But I’m now growing it out again, which is so annoying – it’s still all different lengths, but I’m getting there. Having short hair for so long, I just started craving having the ability to brush it and tie back or do pretty things with it.

    Curse you for being one of those people that looks fantastic as both a blonde AND a brunette!

    I’ve never been big on hair changes. I think they scare me too much. I’ve wanted to try going blonde since Jessica Alba did it a few years ago but I think the maintenance would drive me insane (and broke!). The furthest I’ve gone is a few caramelly highlights. xx
