H is for Hair


There was no doubt in my mind that in my list of favourite things H would be for hair.  For as long as I can remember I have loved doing hair... dying it different colours, trying out different styles and buying cute accessories.  I really regret not going to college when I finished school to learn hairdressing and opting for the more sensible option of Business, but oh well I guess there's time yet.  As much as I like to play around with hair and trim my own fringe, I would love to get some proper training, especially in hair colouring.  I love the way something so simple as dying your hair or changing your hairstyle can not only change the way you look but the way you feel too.

Here's a little of my hair inspiration at the minute...

I'm loving all the bright colours popping up everywhere at the minute, thanks to Bleach.  I would love to go there to get my hair dip dyed in their lovely pink and purple shades.  I can only imagine how hard it would be to get an appointment there with all the publicity they're getting at the minute and their celebrity clientele.  I definitely think it would be well worth the wait and money though.

As much as I'd love to brave some of these hairstyles, I don't think it's something I'd try out myself or in a local salon.  I'd only make such a drastic change if I really knew I was in good hands.  So for the moment I'm going to stick to red...

To be honest, I have been dying my hair so long that I can't really remember what my natural colour is but I think its a medium brown.  This is how red I can get it with Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL over brown hair.  I was satisfied with this colour for a while but now I want to go brighter, like this...

After talking to my hairdresser I have come to the realisation that the only way I am going to achieve this kind of brightness is by pre-lightening my hair.  Doing this at a salon will cost hundreds, and as much as I want it, I can't really justify spending that amount of money on my hair.  So now I am in a major toss up whether to try it out myself at home or not.  I am just a little nervous of it turning into a huge disaster or, god forbid, my hair falling out like some hair horror stories you hair.  What do you think, should I risk it or not?  If anybody has any tips or can recommend any products I would greatly appreciate it.
