Hair Magician

Believe it or not, I am quite fussy about how my hair looks.  It’s colour and cut, i’m not really worried about styling as my curl doesn’t lend itself to anything without hours of effort and lets be real here, I aint got time for that.  So a good cut to show of the curl and great colour to cover the grey is all i’m after.  I’ve had a couple of hits and misses over the years and now that i’m 38 years old (eeep!) it’s getting more difficult to find a blonde colour that doesn’t make me look mutton dressed as lamb, until yesterday.
Enter The Hair Salon and a magician named Cindy.  A quick five minute consult and we went through all my woes and fears of being older, not wanting to be a brassy blonde, not liking the idea of high maintenance and how my hair had turned to straw with pregnancy, also the box dye episode to get some sanity etc…and she and the owner of the salon, Jean, came up with a wonderful solution.  Highlights spread throughout the head and then a toner in a ash blonde.
They managed to get the foils, toner, treatment, cut and dry within three hours – amazing – and I have never seen my hair look more natural since I started colouring it 20 years ago!  I am truly astounded.  It’s not a “hey look at me” kind of colour, but it’s like she read my mind, it’s EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for! I am in love with it, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love that it’s low maintenance (only need to touch up every three months) and it’s natural looking, so I don’t look like a bottle blonde and bonus, my hubby LOVES it – growl. So I am sorted.
