Princess hair

I had a request for beautiful 'princess' hair recently. I knew exactly what she meant weirdly. And without blowing my own trumpet, it looked amazing! I thought it share it with you.
She's really light naturally anyway so lifting her hair isn't a struggle and it's really satisfying to see someone with this colour hair and in great condition. (Trust me it's a rare sight)
She's a good candidate for this high maintenance colour because she looks after her hair, doesn't straighten or abuse it, and uses the right products all the way through. She comes in when she needs to aswell so she doesn't get banding.
(Hairdresser term for yellow lines)
After 3.5 hours in the salon, she defo looked like a princess.
What do you think?

My hero

Someone asked me the other day what is the one hair product they need in there toiletries, this was so hard for me. As most of my friends know I'm a massive product junkie. There are a lot of things that i couldnt live without, but i know for most people that it can be very costly to have EVERYTHING.
So if i had to recommend just 1 product that covers all areas it would have to be this! Its not cheap at £39.50 but worth every penny!! The whole bottle lasts me about 9 months. I think an investment. Or if thats a bit steep then try the smaller bottle at £15 but trust me you will get hooked.

Daring to be different

We all get bored with our hair don't we. Some choose to make the change, others either too scared or just set in their ways. I love it when a client says to me, 'I feel like a change'. Instantly I get so excited!  I'm not a pushy stylist but I do encourage people to be experimental. It's fun!
What's funnier, looking at old pics where you look the same? Or looking at all the disastrous hairdos we've tried. I know my answer.
Being daring doesn't have to mean tacky. It needs to be done with class and have an expensive feel. It needs to be done on purpose not just thrown in there for the sake of it.

A classic example came to me last week. She is one of my favourite clients, I have been doing her hair for a few years so would say after all this time I know her boundaries. I also know her work are cool about her hair. ( to a certain extent)
Bored she was and different is what she wanted.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a before pic but it was just the same colour allover.
It also helps that she has amazingly shiny hair aswell.
A little feature to add interest.
