If you throw it back to last year, I was struggling to grow out that god awful root stretch that a stylist had cursed me with. Then I found a new salon and the blonde was back. Not only have I found the best salon in Newcastle, I have had a change around with my hair and gone darker this weekend!
I have been either pale blonde or white for more years than I can care to remember now and as a natural dark blonde, the root upkeep was starting to get a bit boring.
The paler your hair is dyed, the darker your roots look. It’s just how the contrast with blonde works. I knew I wanted to improve the quality and health of my hair and the only way to do that was to lay off the bleach.
There was only 1 place I’d trust to send me to the dark side and that’s Bobble in Jesmond, Newcastle. They are the masters of blonde and saved me from the dreaded root stretch affair.
I like to have pale blonde around my face but I wanted to introduce darker shades to the root so that I could get longer between visits. That would in turn help to grow my hair out healthy.
With a million instagram screenshots to show the lovely ladies, I just ended up saying do what you want. I trust their experience and boy did they do me well. Woven lowlights with a darker blonde mixed in with the pale blonde and root has completely changed my look without being too dark – my biggest worry.
Before an After
This has been my transition over the last year in the tone of my hair with Bobble to get rid of the root stretch which can be seen in pic 1.
