I recently decided that I wanted to lighten up the ends of my hair to a white shade to spruce up my locks which were looking dull and lank and also to make experimenting with colours easier.

After a little failed mission of bleaching my ends at home that left my hair ginger, I booked myself straight into Taylor Taylor, Notting Hill to give my hair a new lease of life!

I booked my appointment with Samantha Cusick who is Tanya Burr’s hair stylist – she’s a babe and an absolute balayage genius!  She used the technique to really help lighten my ends but to also blend the highlights into my natural hair colour so my roots look naturally sunkissed & will grow out easily.

After bleaching and highlighting she used a toner to pull out some really gorgeous pearly tones in my hair and then used a Brazilian Blowout product to really help smooth the cuticles of my ends and leave me with glossy, soft hair.

I’m absolutely over the moon with my new locks.  Hair salons for me are normally catastrophic and always end in tears but I literally couldn’t be happier with the whole experience and the end result. The salon itself are lovely, the staff were so accommodating and friendly and the cocktails served were the cherry on top!

Big thanks to Sam & Taylor Taylor for my new hair!

Have you ever visited Taylor Taylor?

    Your hair looks stunning. I've never thought about having super blonde ends with already blonde hair but this look is gorgeous. This has given me serious hair inspiration!

    You look stunning! I've been reading your blog for yonks and always get major hair envy, now even more so.
    I'm desperately trying to get back to a more natural blonde after dabbling with silver/violet – I've only had it for a few months and I'm bored already!

    Your hair looks gorgeous! I've been toying with the idea of lightening the ends of my hair for a while now – especially as summer is around the corner – and this is making me want to all the more.
    But like you said – I salons can end in disaster (the last time I went ended with me coming home and having a cry over the awful cut)..
    But I may bite the bullet now & give another salon a go!

    I am so jealous of your hair, it's so long and gorgeous!

    I love it! It's is so nice. I used to have dip dyed hair, but the brown to blonde was a little harsh for me so it didn't last too long! – I might think of having a lighter tone on the ends now after seeing this – It's gorgeous. Love the curls too 🙂

    Your hair is amazing, it looks gorgeous and it suits you perfectly. I personally have short hair and although I love it, I am always so jealous of gorgeous long curls like these.

    This looks SO good, I love it! I'd love to get my hair done like this but the hairdressers that my budget would allow me to visit would probably just mess it up haha! 🙂 xx
