A Love Story…
My last visit to the hair dresser for a hair cut was in May 2015 when I chopped off all my locks and four days later, regretted it so much… Hence the reason why I avoided anyone with scissors for 8 months! But at some point, if I wanted to grow healthy hair, I had to go for a trim. The day finally came and there I went. The main goal was to give my hair some shape and subtle
layers. Though, my problem with layers is that I don’t like when you can see them (I hate the half-moon shape from the mouth to the ends!), but luckily for me…Roi Nadin, the head stylist at George Northwood salon, had the ultimate solution for me. Non-visible laters cut inside the mass of hair, therefore maximum volume, because my hair was lighter thanks to the new layers. So there I found my “undone effect,” AKA the whole deal!
I also had my color done by Sally Northwood. I felt I was a little too blonde from my previous highlights done before the summer and my hair had gotten lighter and lighter since then. Also, the blonde shade was too warm for my liking. Sally suggested to tone down with brown low lights and accentuate some of my blonde locks, but with a more creamy and sandy shade. I love the result, it looks natural, and the contrast of brown and blonde create more depth…
I was really into the minimalist decor, that had a really nice nature tone to it. Plus, the cherry on top…complimentary beverages with an organic chocolate bar! Talk about a reason to keep you coming back again and again forever.
And a quick word on my hair process…I like to use sulfate-free shampoo, and special products for colored hair that help keep the color fresh and prevent quick fading. The trick? Shu Eumura color lustre shampoo + ultimate remedy conditioner and mask (ideally once a week if I have time!) and the Purology shampoo and conditioner with anti-fade complex (100% vegan!)
Hydration is key too. I like the pearls of beauty serum from Aldo Coppola or Christophe Robin mask that is made with 99% natural ingredients.
Any time I notice my hair is starting to fade, or that my highlights are thinking of going back to that orange/yellow shade we all hate…I use a gentle hair color conditioner like the blush satine (white gold shade) from Eugene Perma.
Well, everything’s there, it’s a lot of info! So feel free to ask me anything my beautiful ladies in the comments below!
Have a great weekend,
