My Hair Transformation (Malfoy Has Nothing On Me!)

So after months of putting up with this brassy mess, I've finally managed to make time for a hair appointment. For quite some time I've fancied a more bold and vibrant do but in the end I settled on a pearly blonde colour. Since this is my first 'hair transformation' since I started this blog back in November I figured it would be a good idea to blog about the process. 

This was my second visit to Bronzing Beauty & The Salon in Ferryhill and I have to say, I was very impressed. Ashleigh was very professional and did a fantastic job at my colour change AND cut which is hard to come by when you're searching for a hairdresser. My past experiences with hairdressers had previously led me to believe the notion that it was an either/or scenario. You can check them out on Facebook here if anyone lives near by.

Ashleigh started by bleaching my hair from the roots to the ends, it actually developed really quickly. I'm not sure whether that's because my hair is very porous or because it was pure bleach but either way I was impressed with how quickly it took to my hair. 

Once the bleach was washed away she dried my hair and applied a toner mixed with permanent dye so it would banish the yellow tones. I was warned before-hand that the bleach would make my hair 'canary yellow' before the second dye but to be honest it wasn't as yellow as either of us thought it would be. I know I've mentioned it before but the dye really did take quite quickly and I can't fault Ashleigh on the colouring at all because I adore the way it has turned out.

So here's a picture of the finished product, sorry for stealing the picture Ashleigh! As you can see, the colour is a very pearly/silvery blonde and I got a bit of a shock when I first saw the colour. When I first walked into the salon I had a vague idea of how I wanted my hair so really it was all Ashleigh's input. I love the way that she cut my layers in because it added to the bounce of the curls she created, my hair looks so much more healthy than it did when I arrived.

For after-care I am going to be using the BLEACH LONDON Silver Shampoo to try and keep the shade... Not yellow.

    1. I haven't had the chance to take a decent one yet, I need to change all of my profile pics! :D

      I'm getting it redone late next month or early the month after... Just whenever the roots start to show. I guess it just depends on the silver shampoo you use. I've been just about every shade of blonde. xo
