As I’ve already mentioned, possibly more times than necessary, I’ve had a bit of a hair makeover. I’m loathe to bang on about it too much, but I can’t seem to help myself: I think that I was probably pretty low about my appearance after having Ted, and my new, shorter, blonder hair has really given my self-esteem a lift.
I didn’t really intend to go shorter and blonder, but I think that Kat (hair stylist) and Melanie (hair colourist) at Josh Wood Atelier sensed that I needed something new. Nothing too drastic but just enough of a change to make me feel perky about myself again.
Hair overhauls can go one of many ways – you need only read my post on my modelling hair disasters to know that – and so it takes some really special teamwork to create something that not only boosts your self-esteem but makes your life easier. Less time spent styling, more of a dramatic effect when you do spend time styling, and a colour that really flatters your complexion.
Here I am before my hair makeover:
And here I am afterwards. (Spot the babysitting going on in the background!)
Just taking a couple of inches from the length and making things choppier really freshened everything up, and the lighter tones around my face somehow made me look less tired. A feat bordering on miraculous…
I think that it’s actually quite rare to come away with new hair and be completely happy – there’s usually some element of self-doubt or worry about how it’ll look once you’ve washed it! – and so it is with great excitement that I announce my latest giveaway. It’s simply amazing. The top prize is worth a whopping £500: the winner will have the ultimate hair makeover at Josh Wood Atelier in London, with a hair cut by Kat de Rozario and colour with Melanie Smith!
Whether you fancy a style refresh or something completely new, this is the hair prize of dreams. And for ten runners up, I have a Redken Diamond Oil Glow Dry haircare collection, each worth £50. The “Glow Dry” range includes a shampoo, conditioner, gloss scrub and style-enhancing oil and has been created to give hair a brilliant shine – an excellent fix if you find that your hair looks dull when you blow-dry it, it really adds a glossy sheen.
