I Got Ma Hair Did // Honey Colour Balayage

Monday, 15 December 2014


If you're looking for ways to spice up your locks for the festive season, I have a highly recommended option for all you chocolatey coloured brunettes.

After having every other Londoner parading their funky dip dyes in front of me, I couldn't resist any longer. It is Christmas(!) after all- why not treat ourselves? As my wisest buddy says - 'You wear your hair everyday so why not spend money on it' - very true. After all, I would spend the equivalent in Zara to what I'm paying for the balayage!

This is my very first hair colour experience! Yes, you heard correctly my friends, I have been au natural my whole life (bar a few henna shampoos…pretty wild huh?)

And what better excuse for new hair, than a Christmas Wedding. I was asked to sing at a friend's wedding this weekend down in sunny Somerset, so wanted to add a splash of seasonal colour to my locks. It was starting to look a little drab. So I headed to Gro on Clapham High Street for my new look - it's pretty fancy shmancy in there, far too quirky for the likes of me, but they made me feel very welcome and the receptionist was a hoot! 




I realise I don't put many pictures of myself up on The Betty Stamp anyway so you probably won't know what my hair looked like before really, but it was a pretty bog standard dark brown.

Here's a snap of my new huurr & what I wore - a Ted Baker looky likey but it was actually from the Zara sale *shhh*... and was £20! *even bigger shhh* Here's the real deal from Ted Baker

Janey's dress is actually a real-life Ted Baker and is STUNNING - *cue dress envy*. It's so festive and shimmery, she looked the bees knees. Find her Ted number here.




Here are a few Pinterest examples of honey coloured balayage for other style options.

Everyone have the best 10 day count down to Christmas!! And make sure you eat ALL of the mince pies in sight.
