Boda Haircutters

Spiked bracelet- Asos

So here it is, my new hair : )
I was soooooooooo in order for a change, especially considering, as you all well know, all I was capable of was putting my long straight hair in a pony tail or basic bun- even a sock bun is out of my hair styling skill scope : /

Boda Haircutters fit me in on a Saturday morning at pretty short notice which was amazing.  Despite a busy salon I got beautiful customer service, enjoyed a lovely latte and the latest gossip mags while Danielle cut away.  The new senior styling Colleen coloured my hair, we went for a warm chocolate brown semi-permanent which I love- so perfect for Winter!  Followed by the best bit about having your hair done, a blissful head massage and blowdry. Yay!!

In terms of the cut I have to admit after a few days I was not feeling the love for my hair and was struggling to make it work for me, so contacted the owner of the salon, Angie.  I was so impressed at the response, Angie immediately got me back in for an adjustment and some styling lessons for new shorter locks.  As Angie and Danielle said to me- if someone isn't happy with their new haircut they would prefer they came back in so they can make it better.  SO reassuring.

So what do you think?  I'm really excited about my new do, this length should be so much more manageable for me.  This is my second go at putting GHD waves through my hair, not quite as fabulous as when Angie and Danielle had finished with me, BUT a bit more experimenting and I'm sure I'll get the knack of it!


On another note Angie also mentioned that she is looking at holding some styling nights at Boda Haircutters where they would teach you how to style your own hair and work your GHD/curling tongs.  How awesome would that be- I'm totally in!!  Anyone else in need of some styling guidance?

  12. Great cut! I remember when I cut my hair shorter I had difficulty thinking of ways of styling it... Now i'm growing mine long and will soon grow my fringe out to get ready for summer. :)

    Love the colour also!

  16. What a FABULOUS cut, and you did a brilliant job of GHD curling it, Michelle!
    Up here in Brisbane, the Brisbane Beauty Bloggers recently attended a DIY Styling Night at Bossy Hair and it was TRULY the best thing I've ever done for my locks, I learnt so much! http://blog.katypotaty.com/2012/06/04/yodel-ay-hee-hoo.aspx

  25. I think it looks amazing michelle! The salon sounds fantastic too. I'm normally an advocate of long hair but this new look is so stunning on you and I'm sure many would argue it is still long ;)
