Turning From A Brunette To Red Head!

HELLO! It's official! I am a redhead now! Yes! Being a Brunette I had been contemplating changing the colour of my hair for a long long time but never took the bold step of actually doing it. The closest thing that I did was streaking my hair with a different colour but never actually got around completely colouring all of my hair! But then recently I got this strong desire to go in for a colour change. I guess the reason was my birthday was coming up along with the fact my parents were coming to visit me all the way from my home country and so I felt why not go for a change for this doubly special occasion! And so I jumped into it after all and the color I chose was, no prizes for guessing - RED! My favorite colour! It's the colour of love and passion!

My hair was coloured by Martha a famous Hair stylist and Colourist in the West Midlands region of UK! I had to fix up an appointment with her a week in advance! Before the actual colouring process begun I had an initial meeting with her to discuss in detail about the coloring process. I wanted to have a very strong reddish colour but Martha advice me against doing it as my hair being naturally dark in colour would have to be bleached so that it turns lighter in order for the red color to get absorbed and display well and she recommended that i don't bleach my hair as in long run its not good for me. And so she recommended that instead I go for a light shade of red in order for it to look dark red on my hair and I agreed to it.

So today's post is about my transforming from a plain brunette to a redhead and I am going to share with all of you some pics I clicked of me while my colour got changed! Hope you all like them:-



I clicked this pic of my reflection on the mirror in front of the chair while Martha began the process of coloring :)



My hair was set firmly before the coloring process began...





In this you can see the color applied on my hair.



After all of the color was applied my hair was covered with a towel and I had to sit down for a while for the color to get absorbed into my hair. Later my hair was washed and then blow dried along with a curler. Then Martha styled my hair by cutting my hair in layers....



This is how I looked after the coloring process and hairstyling was completed!A few more pics of me in closeup with the new color!



From the pics my hair looks kinda brownish but the actual colour has more reddish undertone to it..it almost looks like a golden red in person.



So there you saw me transforming from a brunette to a redhead! As a famous saying goes - "Blondes are wild, brunettes are true, but you never know just what a redhead will do"!

So have any of you recently changed your colour or planning to and how many of you are going in for a red color? I would love to know!

PS - I had a fab bday! soon I will be posting some pics of them!
