As you can probably imagine, we chat a lot at BRHQ. I mean we work hard, but when you're talking about makeup, beauty products and hair care, it's only natural the conversation is going to digress into personal experience right?
A recent article reported that the average woman changes her hair colour only three times in her life. This surprised me. It did not surprise Queenie, aka the founder of Beauty Review, Merilyn. Merilyn has had 2 hair colours in her life - blonde and red. And that's only if her dying her hair red to go to a fancy dress party as Miranda from Sex And The City counts!
Me on the otherhand, well, where do I start?! I wasn't allowed to dye my hair until I was 16, so I probably blame the parents for my fickle nature when it comes to hair colour. I was born blonde which eventually darkened to that most awesome of shades - mousey brown. Well except for one random inch wide section on my crown, that still, to this day, grows blonde. At 16 I added some highlights, which were about 3 shades lighter than mousey brown. And then I turned 17, got bored, chopped my hair off and dyed it pink and black a la Kelly Osbourne.
Since then I've had bright colours - red, purple, blue, pink. I've been raven black, iced chocolate, returned to light brown. I've been all over violet and all over blue-black. Then at 23 I grew bored of the upkeep and grew out my black hair. Several years later I was rocking my natural shade until I decided to ombre it - my first proper foray into blonde. That lasted a year until I decided I wanted to funk up the mum bun with a hidden rainbow. Which changed colour every six weeks.
And now...well I'm pretty much back to natural mousey brown again...and hoping those first greys just sort of blend on in...!
So now it your turn to tell us - how many hair colours have you rocked in your life? And why is this the case? Do you see approach your hair as you do your accessories and like to play around with it, chopping and changing colour often? Or do you stick with what you know suits?
