If you follow me on IG you may have noticed that over the weekend I got my hair did! It's something I've been thinking about for a really long time but I've always thought that hair extensions only come in the Britney Spears 2007 variety with obvious clip ins and not a very natural look.
Turns out I was wrong and so my lovely neighbour/friend and hairdresser (I am so lucky to have my very own personal hair stylist across the road from me) went about working out what would be the best look for me.

I did think about blogging the process but we were nattering for so long I didn't really remember too. I suppose you all know what I look liked before though (just look at the post below if not!). This length and colour is actually the exact hair I had as an 18 year old.. I did try and search through old Facebook pictures for one to share but they are all so terrible I'm not sure I'm ready to show the internet grumpy teenage me...especially with the clothes and make up I used to wear back then!
Dress / Cardigan / Bag / Boots
It's taking a bit of getting used to, especially with the weight and the fact that each section has been sewn into the hairline and so I'm having to learn how to wash and brush it a little differently. It's also a little weird to sleep on as it's much thicker (and there's so much of it!) but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
(p.s for those wondering about my weird belt, I couldn't find the one I was after and had to make a makeshift hole and safety pin job of this one)
It took a full day to put in as well as dye my hair. I'll have to have that redone in three months as they will have grown out a lot by then if I want to keep them in so there is quite a lot of upkeep and it's fairly pricey due to the amount of time that goes in it but I'm really pleased I went for it.
p.s for those of you wondering about my black bracelet, it's actually a FitBit which I'm using to track my sleep for a post I'm working on. I'll be tweeting about different techniques I'll be trying over the week to help improve it.
