I spend so much money on products that aren’t right for me. My worst one was getting my foundation done at the Chanel counter at Gatwick, then purchasing the product and not realising until I went to the loo on the plane and looked in the mirror that my face was literally orange (top tip, try to approach someone on a make-up counter whose own make-up style you really like). I have to say, though, that when I took it back to the Chanel counter at John Lewis, they changed it for me. I also find I make a lot of mistakes buying online, with products not being the right colour or texture for me. Happily, though, I occasionally have some amazingly good accidental discoveries, and I’m on a roll recently, so I thought I’d share them with you.
I love, love, love being blonde. I’m naturally kind of mousey and… well, a bit dull, but with highlights in my hair, I feel brighter and happier and I feel it suits my colouring really well. I started off with just a few highlights (me, but after a couple of weeks in the sun), and swiftly became blonder and blonder. I love it, but sadly, it doesn’t love me. My hair is naturally very fine and every time I have highlights, it breaks and goes fluffy and difficult to manage. Ugh.
A while ago I shared a taxi with my fab friend, Katy, on the way to an awards ceremony. She has AMAZING hair, and I was interested to find out from her that she goes to London to a salon called Karine Jackson. I left a comment on her blog post about how Karine has transformed her hair, and Karine’s team got in touch asking if I would like to come along to meet Karine and experience her organic colouring expertise for myself.
Girly one, this. So boys you can go and do something manly for a minute. What is it with us girls and our hair? Why do we always want the hair we can’t have? Every curly girly I know wants dead straight hair, and us straight haired girls probably own every curling device known to man. I recently met a natural blonde who dies her hair black (I thought it was natural). It’s a dilemma.
