The title of this post, “brunette to blonde” is something I’ve googled so many times hoping for some inspiring images that would convince me to try going lighter. Whilst I love being a brunette, I’m sure a lot of you girls can sympathise with me when I say, it can get pretty boring!! So, I’ve been fantasising about lightening my hair for years but never quite figured out how to make it happen. A few years ago I went to a hair salon and was told that it would take 3-4 goes to gradually lighten my hair without damaging it. But that meant about 4 months of that awkward ‘in between’ phase where I was stuck with flaming orange locks. Needless to say, I just didn’t have the patience and went straight back to my trusty brown.

But this time around I went into Barney Martin Hair and saw Erin (who I trust with my life) to see whether she thought I could do it. I’d seen Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen go from dark brown to super blonde and wanted to know how they did it. Erin explained that they used Olaplex, which, as far as I understand allows you to go blonder without compromising the integrity of your hair. I was sold.

And a few hours later.. here we are! Let me know what you guys think.
