Fruit Salad Hair


As promised here are, rather a lot of, photos of my new hair style. I absolutely LOVE it (which is why I have posted so many photos, I just couldn't choose!). As the title suggests I think the colour mix is kind of like those fruit salad sweets (if you know what I'm talking about?), I've got 4 colours in, 2 orangey/copper colours, a raspberry pink kind of thing and some lighter yellowy tones running through it, which is actually the colour of my hair once it was bleached!

The top picture was taken for me by one of the other models 'backstage' after the show, all the clothes were supplied by Asos, I did try on a multi-cloured pixel print dress with one shoulder, but everybody decided with such bright hair I was the best one to wear the plain black. You can't see in the picture but it had a cut out back, and was really cute with its little peter pan collar and pinafore style, I felt a bit like a crazy china doll  in it with my pink lips too!

My hair is from the 'Project 10' Collection 2010 which can be seen HERE.








My makeup was done by Mac professionals, I love how clear they made my complexion and my lip colour, it matched the pink in my hair pretty well and I kind of feel naked without such a bright colour to contrast with my hair now, I might pop to Superdrug tomorrow after uni and pick some up, any suggestions on brand etc? I want something moisturising as my lips are always so dry and cracked, but I don't have much experience in the cosmetics area. I literally always just grab which ever product is being promoted at the time, I feel like I can't make a conscientious decision and then end up with a crap product! I'm not a fan of the powdered out eyebrows though, I suppose making them lighter works with the hair colour, but I'm just so attached to my dark, thick eyebrows I can't let them go just yet...


Clothes the same in 'The Before' and 'The After' - Vintage Jumper and Dress, Wellies were a gift from a friend and obviously my hair is by Toni & Guy


Its funny how much difference a new haircut makes isn't it? I instantly love this whole outfit more with my new hair, and feel super confident. Like I said in my last post, I'd been putting off doing anything with my hair as I'd been under strict instructions to grow it out ready to be the perfect bridesmaid in April, but as much as I love my friend, and understand its her big day and wouldn't want to do anything to make her photos less than perfect etc, at the end of the day I'm me, and I can't change that. I have short hair, I like it short, I think its suits me, and I wasn't willing to spend the next four months growing my hair in that horrible shaggy, thick, non-style. I promise to get extentions or a hair piece or whatever when the time comes, I'll even wear a wig for the day if she's that desperate for me to have different hair, but for now I can stand tall and confident that my hair truely reflects my personal style! As for the colour, well that'll fade out soon enough anyway and I can dye over it any time, any colour.

You probably won't hear from me for a while now I'm afraid lovelys, I will be taking a blogging hiatus this week to get all my uni work done, one deadline on Monday, and a big one on Friday, eek, busy busy! I do have a few new little vintage pieces to show you though, so you can look forward to seeing those next week some time maybe...

Love the hair, wish i could carry it off! It looks lovely with the dress you're wearing and I'm sure it could look lovely with a bridesmaids dress and would give it a cool retro vibe. but i guess it's up to her...

Ooh I saw your pic on Dottie's blog (I never had a chance to check any of the links as I saw it on my mobile) and I remember thinking 'hmm she's my kinda girl' 'cause of your haircut! I had a very similar haircut before.. I get mine done at Vidal Sassoon so always end up with funny colours and edgy hairstyles. They don't last too long since I have short hair though.

Just got another haircut yesterday - sadly this had to be the one and only one I don't quite like.. it's SO super short!.. hopefully I'll grow to like it soon.. or hopefully IT'LL grow SOON, haha
