For last few years my hair has gone on a bit of a journey, which I have endured by myself (and a helping hand on occasion, thanks to Will you’re the best) but like most people who aren’t trained to do hair it doesn’t often turn out how I want. In the last 4 years, I’ve gone from having dip dye to going all out, I went from pink to orange to blue, to green, then to a darker blue, then purple to a black and then to my mix of colours we are calling a failure. My mum offered to pay for me to have my hair done properly, as she isn’t the biggest fan (understatement) of my DIY hair jobs.
So with that, I headed to HX hair which is in Rugeley about 20 minutes from where I live. My hair was taken care of by the lovely Mel, and I was very worried about what she was going to make of my mess of a hair. Don’t get me wrong, she was a little like wtf have you done, but luckily for me, she was more than happy to experiment with my hair. As my hair was already an array of colours I decided it would be best to trust her opinion and let her go with what she thought would work. When walking into the salon I was overwhelmed with how amazing the layout was, with spray paint on the walls and chairs, mirrors with TVs in them and some sick artwork on the wall. Honestly looks awesome!
I first had my hair bleached, which I have to say I was worried about after the copious amounts of times I have bleached my own hair, with no idea what strength to use. Now my hair came out in some super sexy shades *note sarcasm* in a range of yellow, orange and peach, followed by a weird brown and then blue at the ends (the blue always comes back to haunt you, don’t do it!) after the blue came the fun part, applying an array of beautiful colours starting with pink then purple followed by blue and green vibes, which creates total mermaid vibes. After about 30 minutes, it was time for the dye to come off and I was excited but at the same time nervous in case I looked somewhat like the previous stage, luckily for me, my hair looked AMAZING.
I was in awe that my hair finally looked how I’ve been trying to get it. For the fringe trim, treatment and hair colour cost only £70, which I think is a pretty good deal as it was well worth it. With that, we left the salon and I decided to find somewhere to take photos, I would be a little dubious doing this in my town, however being a different town and having bomb ass hair and my new Sashay Away shirt from Truffle Shuffle and is so comfy plus who doesn’t love a bit of Ru Paul in their lives, and despite it being very windy we managed to get a few shots I didn’t completely hate which is a first and now I’ve seen them on the computer I am feeling confident with them and hope you guys like them too!
*Thank you, Mel and the girls at HX Hair for doing such a great job with my hair and keeping me entertained the whole time I was there! P.s. this is not sponsored in any way, I am just so happy with it, I had to shout about it!
