The dubious hair change - Yay or Nay?

On Thursday Griffin had his Grade 1 interview. Which went great.

Between that and collecting Quinn to take him to collect his spectacle prescription and to get them fitted, we had some time and I suddenly decided to get my hair done.

Stupid impulsive decision!

Firstly my usual hairdresser was busy so I just took whoever was there. Then I said I wanted somethign fun like highlights. My hair was a nice rich reddish colour before:

Then I said to keep the length and make it more layered...

The result... TERRIBLE... I look like a diseased skunk:

I resisted the temptation to recolour the whole lot that same night, and just tied it up for work on Friday. On Saturday I washed it
and let it dry normally (on Thurs I had been for a run and then to yoga and then had a hot bath so it was not ideal circumstances)

This is what it looks like now...

So what's the verdict, colour over or leave as is??


  1. Just the way it is.
    Just the way you are.

  2. I quite like it. Hope the highlights don't look wishy washy soon though, that's what happens to mine.

  3. I don't think it looks bad - in the last couple of photo's it actually looks nice Jane. I would keep it like it is for a few weeks :)

  4. I have had that colouring myself and I quite like it. :)

    Is fun!!

  5. I'm not sure, but I wouldn't say it's diseased skunk at all! I think the colours will maybe wear in a bit? I am always dubiuous after the hairdresser and so glad I never got started with colouring my hair!

  6. Diseased skunk? Ha ha, you're very funny. (and much too hard on yourself).
    I did prefer the before look for you, but the after look is not bad either. Not at all.
    You're very pretty, anyway, you could pull off a much worse look ;-)
