Beauty: New Hair

Friday, 21 March 2014

So I went ahead and treated myself to a bit of a pamper and got my hair done. It's been a while since I stepped foot into a salon for a bit of dye to be thrown on my locks. Ever since I went back to dark brunette I opted for the home dye kits. It was just cheaper and easier! This time though I decided I wanted to go a bit lighter so I decided to head along to LKHair and get Katy to work her magic on me.

LKHair is a salon based in Newbury, Berks. They offer a range of services; the usual hair cuts, colour & hair extensions. Holistic Beauty treatments as well as Nouveau Lash extensions, HD Brows, Nouvoutan spray tans & Biosculpture gel nails. Basically if you want to give yourself a bit of a pamper you can go along to them and there will be something there that will take your fancy! You can see their price list here.

The salon has a really relaxed vibe to it, even though I was a new client all the staff chatted to me as though I had been going there for ages. I love things like that. There's nothing worse than being treated differently because you aren't one of the regulars! Thankfully my hair wasn't too damaged so Katy was happy to use bleach on it, taking a lot of foils she then set to work putting them into my hair. This took some time due to the amount of hair I have! In order to create a natural sunkissed look, she kept the bleached sections of hair very fine. The foils were left in just long enough to create some lovely subtle caramel highlights throughout my hair. We could have left them in a little longer but I didn't want to go too light too quickly, if I gradually go lighter over a longer period time I hope to keep my hair in good condition while doing so. I fear that if I bleached too much too quickly I'd end up with a head of straw! 

There are a huge range of products for sale in LKHair, from Redken, Phillip Kingsley & Evo. When washing the foils out Katy used an Evo Fabuloso Caramel conditioner which is a instant colour and nourishing treatment, this was left on my hair for 5 minutes to work it's magic. She followed this with the Redken Diamond oil shampoo and conditioner which deeply moisturises the hair, perfect as I had just had a full head of foils put in! Katy finished off by cutting a little bit of a sweeping fringe in and gave me a lovely smooth blow dry using the new Redken Pillow Proof blow dry extender.

Overall I am really pleased with my new hair colour and experience at LK Hair. I posted a couple of snaps of inside the Salon onto my Facebook page so head over there to have a look. LK Hair also have their own page which you can find here.

What do you think of the colour?
