feathered

Jacket: Vintage. Shirt: Topshop. Cropped skinnies: Zara. Shoes: Vans. Bag: Alexander Wang (black version is here). Shades: Street Vendor on St Marks. Rings: YSL & Planet Blue. (surplus pics on Facebook)



Yesterday I put my fringe back in (translation: bangs). At the salon, my stylist had feather extensions in her hair and I had her put blue ones in mine (completely unplanned). Apparently they last for weeks and can be washed/dried with your hair. Another stylist with purple ones said she’d had hers for two months. They’re attached via little tubes to a few strands. I like that you don’t really see them unless a gust of wind or fast walking shows the flash of colour. It’s a bit of fun and perfect if you fear hair colouring. I can tell you now, for me it’s better than spray on colour. Remember the red done here? It rubbed off on clothes. Lovely.
I KNOW I need to do a hair post soon but I’ll tell you from now; I get my hair cut at Salon V by Vernelle. It’s a relief to find someone that understands how to work with my hair type and it’s not just me. Everyone I’ve recommended to them thus far for cuts/colouring etc have turned into regulars (blondes, brunettes – the spectrum).

It’s sunny out but still chilly, hence the Spring like get up with a furry number on top. Ahhh, give it a few weeks and no more jackets.

    I know what you mean about hair stylists. Mine knows my hair so well. I will be lost if anything ever happens to her.
