On Tuesday I left work early so I could head over to Cotham. I popped into the Deco Lounge for a quick lunch (I was so hungry and after trying to think of somewhere near to the salon that I hadn’t been to before, I ended up in Deco because I knew I could get online!) then headed to the salon just up the road to meet with Laura from DaisyChainDream and Emma from Aussie. Laura and I were being treated as part of the Lusciously Light celebrations – thats what all the wiggy fun has been about recently, trying to help us decide what to do with our hair.
I knew that I wanted to get rid of the mess that red “semi-permanent” hairdye left – I last dyed my hair in January and have been desperately washing with horrid shampoos to strip the colour out – but wasn’t too sure what sort of colour I wanted or what style. I think its a sign of my TV watching habits while unemployed that when I thought about hairstyles I wanted, I thought of Sarah from Chuck, Kari from Mythbusters, Veronica Mars and…er…Hannah Montana (I kid. Not about the watching Hannah Montana bit. I’m more of a Wizards of Waverly Place or Sonny With A Chance fan.)
So here are the before shots of Laura and I:
Getting our hair done (I’m totally emailing Sarah here)
Laura went for a gorgeous reddy colour, it looks even better in person!
And me after! I had a lot of foils done to lighten my hair, then an ashy blonde put on the inbetweeny bits. I didn’t realise how heavy it would be!
I’m so pleased with how it turned out! Ruth (my stylist) did an awesome job with my hair. If you’re in Bristol, I would absolutely recommend Jon Hurst Hairdressing on Cotham Hill.
Heres Laura, Emma and I afterwards! We went to one of my favourite bar/restaurants, Goldbrick House (I ended up going there on Wednesday as well, thats bad isn’t it?) for delicious cocktails.
What do you think of our hair then?
Looking gorgeous girls! The blonde looks fab Hayley! Love that photo of you, Laura and Emma.
Gorgeous! I really do think you suit being blonde and Laura’s hair is fab red :D
Love the new look! Laura’s looks fab too, I’m really tempted to cut all my hair off and dye it a random colour, I’m far too impulsive when it comes to hair!

It is lovely!! Beautiful colour. Did they mention anything about it being difficult to do your hair cos of the red dye?! I have a Groupon voucher for highlights but am worried they won’t be able to do it cos I’ve still a lot of dye left in mine :( xx
Nose in a book says
You look really good. I would totally go for any Veronica Mars hairstyle (she had quite a few, didn’t she?) if blonde suited me but turns out it doesn’t. Not sure about the Sarah from Chuck look. She’s pretty but her hair’s just lank and boring most of the time.
You look Really good!! Love that photo of you.
