My new hair

In all the excitement of going away I forgot to share a photo of my latest hair cut and colour courtesy of the fabulous Stevie, the owner of Stevie English Hair in Glebe in Sydney. He’s always on Twitter and you can follow him @StevieEnglish.

I posted about Team English’s brilliant England Calling show at the GenNext Gala at Hair Expo which showcased the team’s talent recreating iconic British style icons.

One of the things I like about Stevie English Hair is their green approach to hair. They are a carbon neutral salon and use Original & Mineral colour which is ammonia free. Stevie was concerned about how light my hair was and the risk of further damage so gave me an incredible number of superfine foils to create this gorgeous shade.

I was having so much fun in salon I didn’t take any photos of my hair! I only remembered to snap this shot days later so my hair is a little fuzzy but I think it you can see the blow dry has held up pretty well!

The colour has really lasted and I am impressed with the formula of the Original & Mineral colour. Also as it’s a little darker than normal my regrowth is less noticeable. However I think it might be time to book another appointment very soon.

How often do you go to the salon? How long can you go between having your hair coloured before you live in hats? And what colour should I do next?

    I love it! I think the colour looks fantastic! I work in a salon (I'm a hairdresser) so I usually get my colour done once a month but I tell my clients 6 weeks is average . Some people come every 4, some can leave it till 8 weeks. It just depends on the colour and the person. U look great xxx

    I'm terrible. I am blonde and do blonde highlights and I usually go so long that they do a whole foil instead of a touch up. :) But now I am committed to getting it done more often. (But truth be told, I last got it done the first week of June)

    Lovely! Great color.

    I go to the salon every 8 weeks, because I'm trying to grow my hair out.

    I dye it sporadically at home, but that's fine because I love how my hair looks with just a tint of red, so I dye it crazy bright and let it fade out over 6-8 months. The first week is bad, but the rest is lovely.

    Your hair is lovely :)

    I go to a salon about, oh, once a year. LOL. I'm horrible keeping up with regular maintenance, so I opt to coloring at home and only fool-proof shades (mostly brown). I always ask for a hairstyle that will grow out well.
