Brighton part 1 - hair

I've been a bit busy over the last week so its taken me a bit of time to sit down and write about my trip to Brighton last week.
I've broken it down into a couple of posts as it was getting quite long.



The day got off to a great start. Up at 6am to get ready. Plenty of time.
At least so I thought!
Having taken my time over breakfast and the other preparations it was suddenly 10 to 8 and I still had to put on my make-up and get dressed.
As much as it was such an important day with respect to my future I managed to get dressed and made-up within 25 minutes.
Shoes on, final bits in my bag and away I went to my first appointment of the day, getting my hair done.
A quick stop to top up with petrol and I left Yeovil behind.

Lou was waiting for me when I arrived at her salon, I was only 10 minutes late. I told her that we'd have to just go with colouring my hair because I wasn't able to get it cut and styled this time, that  has to wait until after my father-in-laws funeral.  I'm working towards a red colour for my hair and so we picked something that I could get away with for the funeral which I also liked for day-to-day.

It was quite relaxing sitting there waiting for the treatment to finish, I even got involved in a conversation about sport with Lou and another woman.

Eventually it was time to rinse of my hair, trim and blow dry it. While Lou was trying to get it into a suitable style L, one of the other stylists that used to work in the salon came in. It was so lovely to see her, its been nearly two years since I saw her last and we had a brief chat.

Eventually it was time to leave but not before a couple of pictures.

So that's what the back of my hard looks like!

    1. Hi Cass.
      I've been growing my hair for about 4 years now. About as long as it seems to be taken me to get Blogger to accept this response to your comment!!!
      I am really lucky to have a fabulous hairdresser who gets a lot of joy from messing with my hair.
      I was lucky that I was going to Brighton as she had to restrain herself somewhat after blow drying my hair and turning it into a huge mane.
      I am however under the treat of her repeating this and sending me out into the world with a hair style that would make Beyonce jealous.
      I'm seeing her on Wednesday, my hairdresser and not Beyonce, and may be getting it cut shorter, haven't decided yet. Think I might regret it if I do so will see what ideas we can come up with for my hair. We've been planning a "play with my hair" session for a while.
