A lot can happen in a year, a lot of changes and certainly a lot of changes in hair styles. Last year, after have been trying to grow the hair out (it felt like the longest time) I started by journey. My dear friend and amazing hair stylist, hooked me up with the most beautiful sombre (soft ombre in hair language). Click here to see the video of the transformation.
Being the restless Scorpio that I am who is always looking for drastic and changes, I felt it was time to take it to the next level. Last December, we went from 50 shades of brown to ultra platoon blond. Yes, that translates into hours and hours of bleaching, I sat for eight hours in the chair during my first session. The result was mind blowing, and that’s simply because Therese knows her thing. I have super thick hair, even for being a Persian girl and I’ve always felt that hair stylist usually feel lost when they dig into my hair, but not Therese.
The change didn’t last too long, blond hair is high maintenance and it doesn’t really work for me since I usually hair two looks when it comes down to my hair – one is where my hair look decent, flat ironed put together and look number two is my hobo look.
After have been craving lilac hair for a few months I finally jumped in February, but instead of coloring it I used a stay-in conditioner with color pigments. I loved the result, the contrast and having look of my own.
However, after a month I started to feel it was time to achieve a color that didn’t need the maintenance so I could give my poor hair a breather. The hair quality had been compromised which was one of the biggest reason to switch over to something more sustainable. And it came down to this.
A black look with green shades, you can only see the color shifting in the sun which is pretty cool. Takes the black subtleness to another level and adds dimension to the hair style. Well, its been two week and I am contemplating whether there is something wrong or that I am a change addict who simply is always on the next grande change.
What many of you didn’t know is that I used to have a long luxuries hair, one day I woke up and went to I hair stylist in Melrose and told her to shave of the majority of it and just leave hair at the top. That change was so radical that some friends didn’t even recognize me – however, getting rid of all that dead weight was refreshing. Its almost like a cleanse, you feel great after have getting one.
To give you guys a clear visual of what that change looked like, I’ve rigged out photos from my Instagram achieve.
Sorry for the tiny photos and poor quality, but this was 4-3 years ago. Now, to reason why I’m sharing this journey with you all. I’m standing at a cross road, contemplating to cut it all off. Again. I must admit that a part of me want to have long hair again, but I am bit allergic to look like every other girl. So here we go guys, I want YOUR opinion, should I go short or strive for long hair? Give me your honest opinion because I could really use the help. Please comment below, I can’t wait to read your comments.
