When TONI&GUY invited me in for a complimentary appointment, I jumped on the chance. I hadn’t lightened my roots since before Christmas and I was hoping to switch up the colour for spring. I was dreaming of bright, peachy pinks but my hair had other plans.
My stylist, Nana works at the Wigmore Street location and is an absolute pro. She was meticulous about her work and explained what she was doing along the way. So when she told me the green wasn’t going to come out without putting my hair at serious risk of snapping, I trusted her advice.
Instead she refreshed the mint and went over the newly lightened areas with a soft lavender. It’ll probably be one more appointment before the purple is one even tone, but those are the things you have to accept when dying your hair, especially with pastels. Your hair won’t always react to products the way it think it will and some colours don’t come out easily, so you’ll be stuck with them for longer than you planned or be forced to cover them up with something darker.
It’s not what I had planned, but it’s fun to have something a bit different for spring and I love pulling my hair back to show soft, whimsical pops of lilac.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my hair recently, so I thought I’d compile an FAQ post. If there’s anything you’d like to know, leave a comment or drop me an email.
