Outside my mother's house, these frilly hollyhocks are blooming. They're one of the prettiest flowers I've ever seen, and when one fell off today, I brought it up to my room and realised they're a very similar colour to my hair. 

At the moment, I'm enjoying plain tops that highlight my fun hair, and so I thought I'd pair a plain men's tee with my favourite skirt, that I made a couple of years ago. It's been getting quite a lot of wear recently. 

I'm really pleased with my hair colour at the moment, and I keep getting questions about it.. after a few photos I'll try to answer some of these..






If you've been reading my blog since before May, you'll know that my hair used to be dyed very dark brown. To strip this colour I used ColorB4, which stripped it back to a dark gingery colour. I then went to my friend Mel at Portobello and she made it a little lighter, and put some pinky tones in. 

Since then, I've been back to Mel to make it lighter, then used some home hairdye kits. The best one I've found is Superdrug Lightest Beige Blonde, which removes any sort of brassy/yellow tones! I then trimmed the ends because they were super damaged from the bleaching!

As for the pinkyness, I use Directions in Tulip, mixed with a LOT of conditioner, to get it to this pastel/barely-pink tone. It's cool because you can top it up every time you wash your hair, and it makes your hair all silky.

I hope I've answered your hair questions! Let me know if I missed anything out!

PINK TO MAKE THE BOYS WINK!

  9. I love this look and your hair is awesome. My friend used that stripping stuff for her hair and she liked the gingery colour it turned, so she has been that colour for a while now. I live your tattoos by the way!

  11. Lovely outfit and beautiful flowers. I don't think I've even heard of hollyhocks before but they are so pretty! But then I love flowers so think they are all pretty! The colour of your hair really suits you. I'd love to have pink hair but I'm a low maintenance kinda gal and having dark mousey hair - it just will never happen. xx
