Hello! I haven’t disappeared – it’s my last year of uni, and apparently I’m great at putting things off so have been squirrelling away at the first half of my Final Major Project for a week. Phew. Anyway, I’m back with a bit of a change, my hair!
My poor thin hair has been looking it’s most boring over the past year, which is unusual for me as I like to have something interesting, so thought it was about time I did something about it. Well, not me as much as my wonderful stylists, Jenny and Marcelo at Taylor Taylor in Spitalfields. I always think if I’m going to get my hair cut (which happens around once a year, oops) I just as well go somewhere impressive, and I definitely made the right choice in Taylor Taylor, it was the most luxurious hair cut I’ve ever had! I’m sure you can tell from the pictures, too. The place is just beautiful.
Both my stylists knew exactly what I wanted, and I was completely confident trusting them with my hair. As you can see if you have a quick scroll down, I opted to go a few shades darker and get a full fringe. I admit, it’s a lot Deschanel, but who doesn’t want to look like her at the moment? I’ve had a few people I know not recognise me, and I’m still having great fun seeing it looks styled in different ways. In the picture my fringe looks a little longer than it is as it’s not had time to spring back up after my blow-dry, before anybody worries about my sight!
My desire for a full fringe began last year when I was talking to Elodie in Paris; she said how getting he fringe had made her feel like a new person. That played on my mind and I couldn’t wait to get a new look. She was right – I have been adjusting to the ‘new Carrie’, seeing what make-up works with my new colour, and which up-dos look best. I’m finally used to catching myself in the mirror. It sounds strange, but I almost feel more like myself than with my natural colour, having spent my teenage years with black and purple hair. I’m excited to show you properly!
Thank you Taylor Taylor! I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face when I left the salon. x
