Hair Adventures and Mixing Textures

Remember when I said I wanted grey hair a la Kelly Osbourne? Well, it didn't happen. I went to Artis Salon at Pacific Mall (I figured Asian hairstylists know Asian hair best) and asked for Jason, my sister's stylist. She'd only gotten her haircut there, so I wasn't sure about his colouring skills. Anyway, I called a week before and he said he can do any colour but he has to see my hair first. Good call, first sign of a genuine stylist.

Anyway, once I got to the salon and he looked my hair over, he said he can't do it. He'd have to bleach my hair twice in one day, then tone it. Surely my hair would just fall out in the middle of it. He showed me a swatch of the lightest hue my hair can take and I gave the go-ahead.

Five hours later, my hair is no longer ombre, and Jason had cut layers into it. I loved the cut, though not the colour--my then-virgin black roots had turned out more yellow than the rest of my hair.

I let my hair rest for a couple of days and made my way to Sally's to pick up some hair colour. A couple of hours later, I had a full head of medium ash blonde. Whew!

Anyway, here's an outfit I wore just recently, with my new haircolour. I picked up a couple of boxes of Palty haircolour in Jewellery Ash, and when my roots start to look terrible (halfway there!) I'll re-dye my hair.

Oh and p.s., I finally have a car! Photos to come shortly, I guess I'm just waiting for better weather.

Below I'm wearing a satin collarless utility shirt and wool shorts from Joe Fresh, knit tights and faux leather belt from H&M, Jeffrey Campbell Rumble Boooties, Burberry Wool Duffle Coat, Fossil watch, and a studded clutch by GAP.

Hope you're all having a great week so far!
