and now I am a redhead!

new red hair d

As promised, here it is!

Of course, the weather has been hot and stormy and humid and very rainy and generally everything that is bad for hair curls. This is after a, uh, 16? hour pin curl set. I got about an hour and a half out of it... which is amazing, considering the circumstances. I'll take it!

Anyway, I love my new red hair, and I hope you do too! I haven't had much time to try different styles, but I have been looking at my wardrobe and checking out what will work well with my new 'do. Time well spent, I think!

The weather is bad news for makeup, too – as are early morning starts. I've been on the road before dawn lately, and so have my makeup routine down to a few minutes. I've found a way to make it work in the heat, too, and I'll post about it soon! I'm also really looking forward to trying out some new makeup colours..! Fun!

I must admit, after a bit of a stressful start to the year, changing my hair has cheered me up immensely. Isn't it funny how something as seemingly small can have such an effect? Superficial things can run deep.

I just went blonde from being a redhead for two years, and I agree, changing it really does make you cheer up! Its crazy how something like changing your hair can make you feel so different. Anyway, it really suits you :)

A change really is as good as a holiday lady.

Love love love love LOVE it!! BRILLIANT. The colour works so nicely with your skin! And I think you'll still be able to wear red too (cos I see a lot in the background there :-D)
AND I just noticed, it really brings out the colour of your eyes. Time to buy up those cornflower blue and white dresses eh. :-D
YAY!

Oh it looks lovely! Funny I just went from a red head to darker hair! It has taken me weeks to go from red to almost black with henna! :) Enjoy matching clothes to the red hair! Zoë xx

It looks so natural, as you have pale skin. So beautiful.

Melissa G said...

I find that when life is beyond our control the solution is to go for a haircut or a colour change. It is definitely a coping mechanism.

Polly said...

That hair colour is gorgeous and goes so well with your skin tone!

Lynn said...

Wow, you are stunning as a redhead! :) Love seeing the clothes racks behind you, too. I always wonder what to do about my closet and having space to actually put things where I can see them. Am thinking of buying an additional rack for things. Your blog is lovely as usual.

Beautiful! Your blue eyes pop with this color. Very nice :D

Vintage Virgin said...

Welcome to the red heads! I changed my hair colour to red last year from a dark brown and I love it! I get so many compliments about it as I'm sure that you will and already have. You'll have to let us know how the colour stays as I find I have to go back every 5 weeks else it starts looking a little drab.

Emma Litton said...

I loveeee it! You look perfect as a red head.

xo,
Em

Laura said...

Very, very pretty colour!! I was a redhead myself for quite a long time, now I´m brunette again, but the red shine is still there :)
That colour suits so well your skin-complexion!
Best greetings from Belgium,

terry said...

I would like some help on how you deal with the eyebrows, please! I have black eyebrows, so how do you change to redhead or brown eyebrows without dye or what color eyebrow pencils do you use? Thanks - new follower!

Kathryn said...

Loving it to bits. You now remind me of Rita Hayworth especially from her Gilda days. I am so glad you dyed your brows as well or if not at least they are a perfect match. I just hate it when people dye their hair and completely forget about the 2nd most important aspect of a hair color change. The all encompassing EYEBROWS.

The Big Mac said...

Your hair looks so beautiful! I love the length too. I have long red hair naturally and it's super curly. I keep thinking I might cut my hair shorter but not sure if it would look right as it's so curly...hmmmm Power to the redheads! Love the new look. xx

Lucy Nation said...

I recently changed from jet black to red too and I absolutely love it! The red reall suits you x

Sarah Dee said...
