I just booked another hair appointment. I used to have to refresh my hair twice a year, but all of a sudden I see myself booking new appointments every second month! Ok, I know winter and darkness makes my hair look dull faster as well as the fact that I’ve gone back and forth from pregnant to nursing to somewhat normal in just a few years. The steep changes in my hormone levels certainly leave marks (hair loss, hair growth and baby hair that gives me a very un- wanted little fringe), but I actually think it’s quite boring to waste time at the hairdresser so often. Especially when all I want is for my hair to look natural yet in a refreshened way. My own hair gets really flat and dull if I let it grow out au natural. A bit of highlight gives it exactly what I crave. Some extra volume an texture.
Every time I go I follow the same routine. Carefully done balayage highlights as well as a tone all over to make the base a little less grey. Now I just booked another appointment because I know I’ll feel a lot better when my hair feels good. Less styling, less makeup, less black outfits. Yes, the over all look kind of starts with the hair. Instantly brightens up the face and works as the perfect mood lifter (Yes, something so superficial actually can be the first trigger).
Although my hair kind of matches my skirt and new kicks, I’ll make sure to be a little less matchy-matchy and let go of my Goldielocks crown before new time.
