I went from very dark brown to a blondey balayage, and I love it. Just make sure you go to a great hairdresser that is skilled in balayage, I made mistake of taking a cheapie option first of all, and had to go £££ to get it fixed. I'd never go back now, love having expensive hair (even if that means I can only afford it to be done every six months or so 😂)
Great thanks for all that! My hair is usually in beachy waves with a few more layers than I have now...I don't want a full-on ombre, just a slightly more than 'sunkissed' look...maybe a caramel tone would be better? newtssuitcase is the condition of your hair much worse now? I don't want to wreck my hair completely, just change it up a bit!
My hair was very glossy and in very good condition.
Its now in not as good condition on the lighter bits and is splitting a bit. But it isn't horrible. My colours are caramels on dark brown but as each week goes by it gets lighter. I will make an appointment for just a toner in a couple of weeks' time.
ooh Janknitti - if you could make your Newcastle recommendation that would be fab - I'm in Durham and am starting to think about how to manage the growing elements of white/gray hairs - my original colour is very close to black though so don't want it to look a mess!
