Amazing the positive effect a trip to the hairdressers can be. Ok - it took 3.5 hours, but boy was it worth it! I am totally in love with the new look - the more subtle honey highlights topped by the chunkier lighter streaks. And of course, the much more manageable length. So, thank you Mum for giving me the much needed kick up the bum to go and finally get my hair sorted (and for partly funding the operation)! I should have done this AGES ago.........silly me!
