After a little break from these hair updates I’ll today share how my looks like nowadays. I’ve been growing my hair longer for almost two year now to make sure I can have luxurious high buns for my a) bachelor of medicine graduation party this month and b) wedding next summer.
My hair is reaaaally long nowadays which is weird and cool at the same time. Having hair this long is sometimes a lot of work and I’m becoming a ponytail girl haha. Long hair looks superb open but it’s getting to your face on wind and getting stuck to armpits which is really annoying sometimes.
I have also been working to make my hair to be in better condition by just getting stripes instead of full blonde and taking better care of my hair in general. Hair oils, treatments, etc. have become my friends during last couple years.
However, I want to have nice blonde hair for the wedding so we started going back to actual blonde couple days ago with my hairdresser.
Here is the before and after of my hair (and btw it’s crazy how much your pose affect what shape your face looks like haha – there is 3 hours between these photos and same spot and same phone):

This time my hair was bleached (around top 50% of it). And then it was toned with some cold tones to make it nice and a little bit platinumish. My hair is a bit darker than I wanted it but my own hair is like super dark brown with a lot of red pigments so compared to that this result is really good.
I think next time we’ll add some stripes to make my hair a bit lighter. We didn’t want to do this at the same time because, a) getting to this point already took 3 hours and b) my hair would probably die with more bleaches at ones. I’m trying to have it in the best possible condition next summer so we have to careful and not to bleach too much at once.
Having or getting a blonde is always couple years or months long project. If you’re planning to become blonde from dark colors, remember to stay patient and be prepared to use a lot of time and money at hairdresser and also to hair products. I love the blonde look and I think it’s worth all that but before you go blonde think about it first, it’s not something to do for just one month or so if you’re color is dark brown or black.
And finally here is one more photos of my new hair, below you can see front and back. When my hair did get that tall haha? What do you think about my newest hair style?
Have a beautiful week guys! 🙂
