I’ve always loved experimenting with my hair, but since bleaching my locks back in October, I’ve been on an experimental journey which led to a bit of a disaster! Luckily for me, the wonderful Ursula at Ena Salon near Holborn got in touch and she fixed me right up.
For me, I’m just going to put it out there- I’ll honestly NEVER bleach my hair on my own again. I watched countless Youtube videos before I went ahead and bleached but to be honest, a lot of the advice I took wasn’t the best for my own hair. I had used Bleach London’s Blullini back in January as I was bored of my blorange hair- I hadn’t quite comprehended how hard it was to get the colour out. Bright blue faded into mint green and my roots had grown out considerably. I honestly thought I was a lost cause! I just wanted to write this for any of you that are going through a bad blonde stage- I also wanted to recommend Ursula as I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her help!
Look how terrible my hair was!
Ursula at Ena Salon was able to fit me in really quickly after I went in for a skin test, and I couldn’t have been more excited! The salon itself was dreamy and the staff were so accommodating, with tea and little biscuits on tap. With a lot of work ahead of her, Ursula managed to revive my hair by bleaching my roots and give my whole head a bleach bath before toning it up to a cool icy blonde colour. Here are some pictures of her progress (I know, look at dem roots!)
Never leave your roots this long kids!
Five hours later, I walked out of the salon feeling like Rapunzel (it must have been those dreamy braids!) and honestly, my hair feels 679576497 times better. I can’t wait to go back in six weeks to see if we can get my hair a silver colour (fingers crossed!)
