Up until last year I had never, ever dyed my hair. The closest thing to dying my hair I came to was using hair mascara in my teens (remember them?!) and that wash in wash out stuff that never really worked! It wasn’t until grey hairs started to appear that I thought the time may have come to embrace the dye so I went whole hog and got my hair dresser to do a bit of ombre too. I’d wanted it for ages but been far too scared! Once I’d done that I’d kind of got the bug. It’s a bit like getting a piercing or tattoo, once you’ve got one you want more! I used to be the same with my hair styles and lengths, I’ve had loads of different ones over the years. Now that I’m happy with the length of my hair I have to do something to stave off the boredom and it looks like colour could be my solution. Only now I’m a bit obsessed with the pastel hair trend.
My main worry was that at 31 I’m a bit old to be playing with colour, especially pastel colours like pink. Wasn’t it all a bit mid-life crisis ish, ok maybe not mid-life but you get what I mean. I’m a 30 something mum, not a teenager, would I be able to pull it off? I think because I’d never done it I felt a bit like it was now or never so I thought F it, why shouldn’t I have pink hair if I want it. I work from home, I’ve got no dress code, it’s the perfect opportunity to give it a try.
I’d been pinning pink ombre or rose gold ombre hair for a few weeks when I dropped it into conversation at the school gate with my hair dresser (and fellow reception mum). I showed her loads of ideas and we decided to go for it!
Rose Gold Hair Inspiration
This was the first time..
When that faded quicker than we expected, we added some lighter blonde bits and a darker pink a couple of weeks later. I think I’ll be experimenting with it every time I get it cut, it definitely feels more fun and a lot more ‘me’
I have to admit I’m loving these more daring styles at the moment..
Part of me still wishes I had blonde hair – it would make following the pastel trend easier for me!
Hey, who knows what my hair will look like next month..!
