So I am aware its been a while since i paid my blog any attention, June is an absolute crazy month for me as it's about 6 of my good friends 21st birthdays and we've had an complete mad month with alcoholic beverages flying all over the shop (I'm sure you can all imagine). Unfortunately I've been working night shifts too for extra money.. Ce la vie.
For the last couple of years I've been stuck in an awful hair rut! I used to have lovely naturally blonde long hair when some deranged hair dresser decided to RAZOR layers into my thin, fine beautiful hair. What a cow. My hair was then on ruined as it got straggly and just looked an utter state in a perculiar "scene" way, I'm sure you all remember the Myspace days right. I wish I had photographic evidence to hand.
NEVER RAZOR CHOPPY LAYERS INTO FINE HAIR LADIES.
To sort out this terrible mess i had to have the longer under layers chopped to pretty much ear length, which was very sad as I feel for my whole life all I've been doing is growing my hair! That should be a real life occupation - Official hair grower.
As a quick fix I purchased some extensions and pretty much never looked back. I was about 14 when I brought my first set and I'm currently 21. I've had many sets and many methods, types and brands of extensions however, I feel that belongs in its own post as it's too much of a crazy lady rant. Basically my hair just NEVER grew back.. I'm guessing as I was pretty much bleach blonde until last year my hair wasn't healthy enough to grow. I went brunette last year and my hair grew a couple of inches which I was over joyed about but it was disgusting as I was too frightened to get it cut.. EVER. The ends were grotesque but luckily my extensions (which I wore pretty much every day), managed to mask the hot mess that was my natural hair.
Recently I felt really fed up of having to wear my extensions every single bloody day as my own hair didn't have a style, it just kind of flopped about on my head. Gross. So when my mother was having her hair trimmed by her friend I just sat in the chair and told her to chop! I don't think I've ever been so brave.. this sounds so lame. Haha.
Anyway I'm really, really happy with the outcome, Here are a few shots of what's currently occuring on my head in case anyone is interested!
So this a snap i took on my mac, but rubbish quality. Its the 'do with some curl in it.
I was finding it hard without all the extra hair to give myself some volume so for the first few weeks I went a bit mental with the mousse and curlers. Haha what an idiot.
Here's a clearer picture of myself (excuse the bags), after I felt more confident without my security blanket a.k.a The extensions and a straight mop!
It is such a relief to be rid of my extensions in my day to day life/routine. However I know for now, I wont be ditching my extensions for nights out, occasions etc. I feel I look naked without them haha. It's so nice to have an actual style to my hair now without extensions, I really want it a tad shorter but I like wearing my hair up for work and I'm too impatient with grips, so this length shall suffice for now!
Girls be warned, Hair extensions ARE the devil. Once you're sucked into wearing them in your everyday life, you're pretty much their bitch. Haha. Although I'm currently sat here writing this with them in. MASSIVE hypocrite.
Let me know what ya'll think!
