I decided this year I was going to be more experimental with my hair, I have been letting my hair grow out a bit and have been toying with the idea of going ombre for a while. So when I got the chance to go and test out Spoilt Hair and Nails , I decided now was my chance to test out, not only a new hairstyle but one of South Africa’s top, luxury hair and beauty salons.
They are experts in cutting, styling, colour, hair extensions, hair and scalp nourishing treatments, manicures, pedicures and so much more and keep up with current trends, bringing international Haute Couture hairstyle trends to South Africa
I arrived a few minutes early and was greeted by the friendly staff and introduced to Neville whome I had heard was absolutely amazing, he had a look at my hair and I told him exactly what I wanted.
He explained that in order to get the ombre look I was so yearning for he would have to do it in 3 stages over various weeks because of my platinum blonde locks.
I had the most amazing hair stylist before this and he told me not to go so blonde but I think life is meant to be lived and to just do what ever makes you happy, so he bleached my locks
( unwillingly lol ) but the upkeep was to much and I neglected my hair for a bit which made my hair frizzy. Thank goodness for Moroccan Oil which I use every day as I think that saved my hair from almost falling out in the process.
I naturally have very light mousy blonde brunette hair which I am not a fan of because I like vibrant colours to suite my sometimes crazy personality, so Neville explained that with the first stage my hair is going to be very dark blonde light brown for a few weeks to repair the condition of my hair so it will be strong enough to colour again ( 2nd stage )and get the blonde ombre ( 3rd stage) look I want.
So after a nice cup of coffee, highlights, colour and a amazing head massage I had my hair trimmed and styled. I admit I got a big shock when I saw the colour purely because I have been pure blonde for 13 years so I knew it was going to take me a while to get used this look.
I immediately felt at ease with Neville, he is really good with colouring and he cut my hair and especially my fringe very well, I have curly hair so its quite difficult to cut correctly, all in all I was very impressed.
I knew as soon as I stepped into Spoilt I would love it, it is situated in the trendy Green Point area, Vida E is next door ( Hello coffee heaven), they have wifi so I can work on my laptop anytime and everyone there was so nice and welcoming.
I am proud to be an ambassador and I look forward to many more hair changes.
In fact this hair colour change has made me realise I have to adjust my make up a lot as my aquamarine eyes now look green instead of blue and thanks to my new fringe I can style my hair differently so for the the next couple of weeks starting next Wednesday I will be posting the Fashionjazz Hair Diaries showcasing different ways to style your hair, different ways to wear make up and how I am adjusting and loving being a dirty blonde 😉
