HAIR UPDATE | THE BIG CHOP

I finally went for a much needed hair cut whilst I was in Hong Kong, and now my not-so-long locks are funky fresh and dual-coloured. It's been quite a big change for someone who hasn't had short hair since she was about 6, but I'm really digging the freedom of it all. 


The Reason:

For years, my hair has been a haven for damaged, split-end ridden hair. I held out for as long as I could, so I'd have enough hair to work with for formal updos and such. But all these formal hairstyles made me realise that my hair was an extremely flat colour, and none of the detailed braiding was showing up. A couple of my friends had made the big chop and donated their hair to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program, so I decided to follow their lead a year later.

The Result:

I had 30cm chopped off and balayaged what remained. I'm really glad the shorter length hasn't made my hair ridiculously frizzy/curly/wavy, but has kept its naturally wavy texture. However, the collarbone length has made it extremely difficult for my hair to stay up in a bun meaning I've lost my signature top knot :(

I'm still getting used to the blonde hairs I find on my brush, but I'm feeling a lot more trendy. I'm so happy that my braids and twists are coming up effortlessly, but I've generally just left it out with a side part. 


Started from the bottom now we here, started from the bottom now all my hair's f**king here.

 I'm sending my hair off to Pantene on Monday, and I really hope it helps someone out! 


What's your dream hair?
