Hair | New Cut

I did it - I said I would and I did it! I don't think many people believe I would actually do it when I said I would, which just made me more determined to do it! So here it is - my new bob! I didn't reallty intend on it being a bob, but a bob is what it is and honestly, I'm so glad I did it.

So what did I have done? Well, I went in and showed her a picture of the cut I liked and the inspiration for it (see post here). We then discussed length and style. I said I needed to have layers in my hair or it's a disaster, and length wise I told her to just do it - we agreed on just resting on the shoulders. Colour wise, I asked for some natural-esk highlights - like I'd just been on holiday. What she did was take my hair and showed me the tips which are generally lighter than my roots. They were actually quite light so we decided to aim for that colour of highlights - I believe the word "caramel" was used. So off she went and this is the result!

I'm still getting used to it - it's very different (before and after instagrams above) but I am happy with it. I've never had it this short before so it was a bit of a shock and honestly I think it's a little bit shorter than I had in mind - but I can't blame my hairdresser as it's the same length as the picture so! After I washed and dried it myself I am a lot happier with it and to be honest, I am loving it. I think it actually really suits me and yes, I miss the length, but I am very very happy with the cut and shape.

I LOVE the colour. It's perfect and exactly what I wanted, it's subtle enough to look like that's how it should be, but different enough for those who know me to know it's been done (if any of that made sense). This colour will definitely be staying.

I would love some advice on how to look after highlighted hair/shorter hair... Definitely pop some hints and tips below with some products! I would also love to know what you think!

What do you think? Any product recommendations?


  1. Aww it looks lovely :) I find adding a bit of colour can really warm up your complexion.

    I advise just keep your hair nice and conditioned, you can't go wrong that way :)
