It’s Time For A Hair Change


Going For A Short, Blonde Ombre Hairstyle

You may remember last year in May, I cut my hair shorter. I went from it being below my middle back (see here) to being short, just below my shoulders (see here). I then had a lot of highlights put in to make it a lot blonder since my natural colour has gone quite a dark, dirty blonde (see here). I haven’t had it cut since the end of Summer last year due to a lot of health issues, but I’ve booked in a hair appointment this Thursday and I am super excited! I want to change it again and go even shorter! Plus, I might want a different colour as well. See my inspiration and what I’m planning below!

In Terms Of Cut


The photo just above of me is sort of similar to how I want to cut my hair again, but this time I want to go shorter. I’m thinking about just hitting my shoulders, just a couple of centimeters longer than Hilary Duff or much like the inspirational photos above. I also don’t want to have a fringe/bangs anymore. That’s grown out now as I’m sure you have noticed, so I want to keep it like that, but stick to having a side parting so I have a heavy swept over front section of hair on the side of my face, a lot like the second photo in this section above. This is what I’m going to go for on Thursday. I’m less of a wimp now when it comes to my hair so now I’ve already cut it short before, I have less worries about doing it again. I feel like I want some layers added in this time to make it more loose and wavy, but slightly longer at the back so it has more of a rounded appearance from behind rather than a blunt, straight cut.

In Terms Of Colour


When it comes to colour, my ombre hair that I had a few years ago (see here) was one of my favourite styles of all time! I really miss it and still love it to this day, so that’s what I’m wanting to do again. As my ombre was on long hair last time, it started below my jawline, but as I am going to be having short hair this time, I’m thinking of starting the ombre half way down my head, around the top of my ear. I love the two photos above as I think this ombre is absolutely perfect! Since I’m a darker blonde anyway, the bleach blonde that I want on the ends should blend in really nicely. One thing that I definitely don’t want though is a block of ombre like last time, I really don’t like that blunt line of colour, I want mine to transition in a faded, perfectly ombre way so I think painting it on in highlight or streak form would be great. I’m going to discuss this colouring with my hairdresser when I get it cut on Thursday, but then I will book in the colour at a later date this month or early April. I literally can’t wait!

Are any of you thinking about changing your hair quite dramatically? If you are, you can check out some of the best rated hairdressers in London on Rock Pamper Scissors or in your area, so you can make the right choice. I think it’s great if you are looking for a new hairdresser and want to branch out. What do you think of my hair idea though? Do you think it will suit me? It’s something I’ve been toying with the idea of since Christmas time, so I can’t wait to get it done! Definitely make sure you follow me on Instagram to keep updated on my new style!

      Yeah, I was scared like that last year and kept putting it off, but I love shorter hair now 🙂

    I think it will suit you extremely well. 🙂 You’ll look fabulous, I’m sure, and it’ll be a beautiful look for the summer (which is coming…).

    I’m guessing that all the women pictured in the examples are famous people? I haven’t got the slightest clue who any of them are though – well, except for the one of you of course! 😀 I must be getting old!!! 😉

      A few are, there’s Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus and Julianne Hough in there, but the others are mostly from Instagram or fashion blogs 🙂 I’m glad you think it will suit me! We will see soon!

        Well I’ve heard of Miley Cyrus at least… so I’m not quite 100% fully out of touch with popular culture… yet… 😀 😉

          Lol, yeah, a lot have heard of her so that doesn’t surprise me! That was back before she shaved her head and went nuts!

            Yeah, she was OK way back when. 🙂 There’s a really nice video on YouTube of her and Dolly Parton doing a live outdoors duet of Jolene about 5 years or so ago. As for her more recent work… I give it a miss. 😉

            • March 23, 2016 / 7:35 pm

              Yeah I know that one well, it’s a great song! Dolly is her godmother so they often do things together!

                Yes, indeed. 🙂 Fabulous song.

                Your hair cut is a resounding success, I reckon. 🙂 Looks great in the insta pics.

      Thank you so much! Fingers crossed!

    Don’t cut your beautiful hair too short Lorna. Like Julianne Hough is the most “acceptable” you can do for me !

    • March 23, 2016 / 1:48 am

      Yeah, that’s a little too short for me, I think an inch longer than hers and I would be happy!

    Lorna, I am excited to see how your hair turns out… I had extremely long hair a little over a year ago… then went shorter, now it is getting longer hair again… there is no real need to freak out about getting your hair cut, it will grow out xox… (I am getting my hair colored on Saturday… I will be blogging about it, I hope everyone likes it, it’s going to be a bit out there… like I am… lol… but I am really excited for the change and I will love it no matter what other people think xox )

    • March 23, 2016 / 1:49 am

      Thanks, Launna! I’m glad you are excited too! I will definitely be checking your blog to see your new colour! Since you said it’s a bit out there, I’m guessing it’s going to be an actual colour! I’m going to guess red or pink?

      Thank you 🙂

    This will look gorgeous on you! I like Hilary Duff’s cut and the Tran photo. I can’t wait to see how yours will look. Amazing of course! You picked perfect inspiration too!
