My Summer Hairdo



Summer for me is always a time I like to change my hair colour. Naturally I have a light brown hair colour which I like but sometimes I get a bit bored with and want a change. I have well looked after but fine hair, meaning that even though my hair is not damaged I don't have a lot of it. When it comes down to hairstyles my hair is so slippery as they call it that it is really difficult to get a hairstyle to stay in place (unless nearly a whole can of hairspray is used), which is why I turned to getting my hair coloured to ombre. I did this last summer, but had a lot of blonde in it and ultimately even though I loved it, because of the sun as well it did damage the ends of my hair a little. So this year I went to my hairdressers and asked for a caramel ombre. This is the end result:


I am really happy with it because its subtle and means that because I can't hold a lot of hairstyles, it just adds a little something without me actually having to do anything to it. It makes me feel a little bit summery as well due to the little bit of blonde on the tips and that was something I wanted to do. I think it brightens up my hair from being just a coffee brown. I like to give my hair some time off being dyed though because it is fine that I don't want to overdo it and strip all the goodness from it. I know that having ombre hair is something a lot of people do nowadays but for me I really like it and I haven't got bored of getting it done. 


Do any of you get your hair coloured in summer? Also if you have any tips if you have or have had ombre hair before that you think I should know let me know in the comments!

I have also just started an Instagram account too, so you can add me at: notesofpetranella
I would love to follow you guys on there.

Hope your having a lovely Wednesday!

  1. I get so bored of my hair and then I get a fringe cut in and I always regret it but always miss it when it grows out. I don't dye my hair at all (I'd loose my natural colour and I don't want that) so I'm kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. I'm really thinking about doing some ombre to my hair - it looks so nice on so many people (including you!)

    1. Thank you! I had a fringe, hated it and couldn't wait for it to grow again. I think its just trial and error with getting your hair done, you won't know what suits you until you have got it done. You could always just try a semi permanent colour though if you wanted?, just on the ends to try ombre and then it would come out in a few washes if you didn't like it :), Elle x

  2. Love the new hair! I used to have ombre hair and I would recommend using shampoo for damaged hair to keep the ends healthy looking. :)

    1. Thank you!, I know its a shame that bleaching hair means it damages your hair. I wouldn't bother then if I were you, I would have killed to have had naturally dark brown hair like you! Mine was just so wishy washy in colour and never stood out so that's why I got so bored with it, Elle x
