Hairdresser tomorrow, I want a change...

(51 Posts)

I used to be the girl who never had the same haircut twice. Now I'm just a clone of the mums I see at playgroup.

Mid length, full head of highlights and all over mousey colour to hide the all too many greys.

I've had cut and grown out so many fringes, I've been every colour under the sun. From peroxide blonde to navy to pilar box red.

I was dark when I met and married dh. He always. Says he prefers it dark, but would never tell me to do anything. I like it dark too but the upkeep of dying it with the grey roots coming through is a night mare. It's shiny when dark. Blonde and its a bit meh.

It's currently the longest I have had it for years and I like being able to do things with it, so maybe I just need to change the colour.

I'm rambling now!! Does anyone have a suggestion???

Ok, I'm leaning towards sliver grey, someone talk me out of it........

Or lilac

Do it (living vicariously emoticon)

Oh chebella, you are no help! grin

I used to be told I looked like Kelly Osborne, but not sure I could pull off lilac.

silver grey!!! I have mine like that, or pastel pink?

how about white blonde with a hint of pink. sorry I am a hairdresser and love adventurous clients like you, very exciting!! grin

My hairdresser said that about me too andthatswhaithinkofyou! She does do a lot of old lady sets though!!

I do like this

Seeing as you are an expert, do you think it could be done in one sitting? Or would I have to bleach then tint?

I went back to dark and got a blunt fringe recently, I love it! The roots are easier to hide with the fringe, there's just the top bit to touch up and not all around the temples. Go for a Claudia Winkleman like me!

That's what I had pre blonding Clara! I'm going to try upload to my profile.

I love it!! youl have to pre lighten all over and have a toner on, I love having white hair you can have all sorts of different toners from platinum, grey, pastel colours and silver. I love having pastel colours. 'dusty rose' is my favourite quite like the pic but more pink than purpley. Go for it!!! please update us all! grin grin

Ok dark and light pics on profile.

I think that you look good with both, looks shiner with dark hair but I would go for the lilac if I were you are felt brave. It's sooo cool and different, not a mummy cut at all.

If you don't want a full head of lilac/pink, can you go white blonde with some slices?

I have sent a message to my hairdresser to see what she thinks. Also I'm not sure they will have the colour in. Might need to get it in specially.

Mine was mousey brown and highlighted until this afternoon when my hairdresser put an all over PURPLE on it. The dark bits that were originally there are no brunette, the rest a plummy purple and the highlights bright purple grin

BEST thing I did!

Pic please swoosh! grin

I am going for a pixie cut next Tuesday.

swooosh Fri 30-Aug-13 19:20:08

should be on my profile!

You need to make your profile public swoosh

Pixie cut sounds great, but I don't suit my hai shot. I'm too round in the face.

I like the dark better. It would look lovely dark with some red or purple in it.

The condition looks lovely in that brunette pic but I like you with lighter hair. I would no do the blonde/ pink combo...I think this only works on those with the palest, most ghostly of complexions. I think you should do what Swooosh did smile I also think a longer, sideswept fringe would be more flattering.

swooosh Fri 30-Aug-13 19:32:30

Think I've made it public now!

OP I could have written your post! I'm exactly the same, I always had different and usually cool hair and now I'm bored and feel identikit. I hate mine blonde but dark is so hard to keep up to now I'm really grey! I can't go too different though because of work.

I like yours dark, it's very shiny and I think it suits your skin tone. How about dark blue?
