The last time I got highlights I was 12 and have hated the idea of them since. 7 years later, and I have been warming to the idea of them again. So today, I went to get some highlights at my usual hairdressers. My hair colour at the moment is an auburn/brown colour. I wanted to get caramel/honey highlights.
I'm not entirely happy with them. I wanted them to be much more obvious, in fact when she finished I couldn't even notice a difference. She said after a couple of washes it will be more obvious. I hope so.
My hair actually has a lot of red in it which isn't obvious in these pictures. I don't mind the hair, I hope it becomes more obvious in the upcoming days. In these photos it looks quite nice, but they aren't as noticeable in real life. In the end it was only $50 (half price compared to normal), so I can't complain too much. Next time I will just go a bit lighter!
On a side note, I cannot believe how straight hairdressers make your hair! They use GHD's like mine, but mine is never that straight. I assume it must be the products they use? Do you swear by any heat protector/straightening products? I use a GHD heat protector, but I don't think it helps at all. I also use a heat protector Dove Shampoo.
Of course I watched the Royal Wedding last night. My mum and I bought Sprite Zero, popcorn, pebbles and cheesecake to watch it. I think Kate looked amazing in her wedding dress, and I hear she did her makeup herself. I wasn't actually a fan of her eye makeup (mainly the eyeliner), but her skin looked flawless. I think they are a very well suited couple!
