Up until last year I’ve always had my natural hair colour, and then when I spotted some greys I started dying it a slightly darker brown. I’ve had many, many hair styles and lengths over the years but never experimented with colour. Then last year I dared to get blonde on the ends, and then pastel pink! The pink didn’t last long unfortunately and I found myself wondering what to do next. My hairdresser mentioned copper ombre to me and after a browse on Pinterest and a few weeks of deliberation I decided to give it a go.
These are the styles I spotted on Pinterest and sent over to my hair dresser..
You can see my full Pinterest board below, honestly how did we do anything before Pinterest came along?
Of course I had some nerves when the day of the change came around but I knew I was in good hands and let my hair dresser do her thing.
Here’s my hair before with the blonde ends
Unfortunately the colour doesn’t last long and I’ve already had to have one top up, I am so happy with the colour though and I’m really pleased I decided to go for it. As you can see it’s more of a red than a copper but that’s because I’ve just had my top up colour and we all know it won’t look this bright after it’s been washed! I’ll be sure to add in some photos after I’ve washed it so you can see the copper.
I’m so pleased that my lovely hair dresser suggested this change as it feels more me than the blonde bits ever did. The copper really warms up my brown hair and suits my complexion – thankfully! I’ve had to up the bronzer, but that’s no bother thanks to one of my Christmas presents, Hoola by Benefit (which I love).
