THE HAIRCARE CHRONICLE: PUTTING BLONDE ONTO RED



Hair Highlights



- Spring/Summer 2013 for me, will be the year of lots of highlights.
I haven't had highlights in my hair since I was around 13/14 years old, but for some reason this year I am looking to add a little more tonal depth to my locks.

My current hair colour sits somewhere in the mahogany brown family.
It has a lot of red in it, but has a lot of dark brown running through also.
Although it was my favourite hair colour ever, I am a little bit done with the cherry red tresses.
I am sure that I will revisit it again but for now, I am looking for chocolate brown hair complemented with honey toned highlights.

There is no time like the present to get on with something.
This will be a long, time consuming progress so I am setting a lot of patience aside.
Also, as a student I can't really afford to have this done professionally at a salon which would probably speed up the process much, much quicker and cause less harm to my hair.

My first time application of highlights has produced some lovely warm tones, coppery tints to my hair which I am super pleased with as a starting point.
Admitedly, some areas close to my roots have taken to the dye much stronger and they could well be described as bombshell blonde…
Luckily for me, highlights are covered by other sections of hair!

Before stage 1 of operation highlights…

  

I used this Smart Highlights kit in 'Cool Blonde
It was a reasonable £4.99 from Superdrug.

 




 


I am really pleased with how my first attempt went I shall be using a toning shampoo to help eradicate some of the dark coppery tones and will be repeating the process shortly, but for an initial lift
I am quite pleased.
Have you ever tried highlights, do you have any tips for me to lighten up the locks?
Love, Holl xo
