Green Hair, Purple Hair, Mermaid Hair, My Little Pony Hair with Attitude!
I have been doing a lot of shoots lately involving loads and loads of wonderful colour! As with all of these things it can take a while to get the shots back from the photographers sooooooooooooooo I thought I would give you a teaser of some behind the scene shots I have taken myself, obviously they are not the best BUT at least you can have a wee peak at what I’ve been up to!
I also wanted to use this blog post to point out that it has taken me many years to perfect my skill as a hair stylist. Not only years of training at college but also extensive training with Toni & Guy and then using that knowledge to constantly evolve and perfect these skills. It is so easy to be tempted to try out colour yourself, or perhaps be talked into getting it done by a friend who convinces you she knows what she is doing (especially in this financial climate)…the only advice I can give you is DON’T DO IT. Please don’t do it! Hair stylists train for so long for a reason. You’re hair may look good for a few weeks, but there may be a colour build up, metallic salts in the hair which makes the hair disintegrate when in contact with other products and irreparable damage to the hair and to the condition. The worst home dye attempt I have seen recently was just patchy and uneven! YUCK!
Please put your trust in the professionals! Never be afraid to ask to see someones credentials and NEVER expect anything less than perfect! You deserve it!!
Good, healthy hair that is coloured evenly and precisely is the least you deserve! So come on everyone let’s:
KEEP COLOUR PROFESSIONAL – ACCEPT NO IMITATIONS!!!!
And on that note here is some fabulous behind the scene shots of some colour I have been doing! – All hair by me.
