The final colour!

I said I would change my hair colour and style regardless of the chemo results and I have finally done it. I know I cut it short a few weeks ago, well I finally had the colour done this week. I have had red hair lots of times throughout my life but I do have dark hair so its always quite subtle. Well not this time because I told them to bleach the highlights first ( I am a bleaching virgin) to be honest it was really nice bleached it was very coppery but I wanted the red on top. So here it is............




I know its the same colour as my walls. That was not done on purpose.

These  two photos were not poses but captured my hair really well.




So there you have it my new image and I can tell you that some people have made it quite clear they do not like it to me. When people make comments like "oh you've change your hair" and "oh that's different" and nothing else its quite obvious. The comment that really bugs me at the moment though is "what made you do that". Maybe its just me but when something like cancer happens in your life it really makes you wake up to how short life really is. Surely life's for doing different things and making changes. Its so easy to walk the same safe path in life which is not a problem if that makes you happy, but there so much more out there and I for one plan to do a lot more with my life, I am already working on my tick list.

  6. Well I love it clare! I am a massive fan of short hair - it's so much more stylish and forces you to make an effort, and the red is great. I might have to have highlights on mine as it just will not go red enough (my natural colour is dark brown!).

  8. Not only is the colour stunning it utterly suits you. Wow. Really.

    I died my hair red once, a few years ago when I had short hair, and looked a total clown. Just needed the big shoes.

    Had to have it bleached out 4 days later and then I looked like an unripe strawberry for a few weeks. Oh the horror!

    But you look hot!
