I want to change my hair colour!

Hello! So today's post is going to just be a chatty one and I would love some advice please!


My hair is naturally a medium brown. A few months ago I dyed it a mahogany sort of colour and there is still quite a lot of red in it when I am in the light. I am trying to get rid of this but I know red is quite a hard colour to get rid of in the hair! I have been going to the hairdressers and they have been trying to get rid of some of the red but it's really not working and if anything is getting more red! (What!)



I love the Ombre hair trend but I don't know if it's a bit done now? I am considering getting a couple of subtle highlights in my hair but because it's a reddy colour then I would be worried they would go brassy. I love hair that has highlights throughout it and then the highlights get more at the bottom so it gives an Ombre effect but it's a lot more subtle and natural.



I had my hair highlighted all over a couple of years ago so I was basically blonde and it did damage my hair so I wouldn't want to go that far again. Also, I loved it in some lights but in others it wasn't a nice blonde.



I also really want to buy some hair extensions and I am looking at the Foxy locks ones! I obviously want to decide what I am doing with my hair colour before I buy them though because I don't really want to have to dye them! If you have any recommendations for hair extensions then please let me know as well!



I love changing my hair colour but I don't want to go for anything too crazy! So if you guys have any suggestions, have Ombre hair yourself, highlights or any advice then please let me know!

    1. Ooh wow, I absolutely love her hair colour so thank you! Haha that's a good idea though - I think Ombre hair is really nice and I have been tempted to have it for so long but I just never have! Thank you so much :) x

  2. Hey Becky!

    I was just thinking about trying the ombre trend also. The only thing is a lot of people are doing it now, but I'm still going for it. I absolutely love your hair.

    The color and the length, but you can try the highlights and extensions, I personally never tried either of those but I love extensions if their done well. Why do you want to change you hair color?

    A lot of people are afraid to try the ombre so they tie die their hair to get an idea on how it'll look on them, (it comes out easily).

    Good luck choosing, I'd like to know what you've decided. I'm sure whatever you choose, you'll look awesome! :)

    1. Hi! I agree, a lot of people are starting to Ombre now I think but I still love it! Yes, I think extensions have to blend in nicely and well to look good, otherwise they can look horrible! I just get bored really quickly and I love changing it! I can't stick to one hair colour or cut for too long before I want to change it! Haha :) Ooh I've never herd of tie die for hair. I will probably to a post on it if I change it a lot! Aww thank you! x

  3. I love your hair how it is, such a pretty colour! I'm considering having my hair ombred the next time I go to the hairdressers :) I think it looks so pretty, especially in a plait or messy bun xx

  4. I've got to say, so many people, especially bloggers have ombre hair now and I agree with you that its already well done. I have more blonde highlights done every couple of months but I find it doesn't damage my hair too much so maybe trying highlights again would suit you more! xxx

    1. I think Ombre is so pretty but yes, so many people have it now! I think I might! I want to lighten my hair somehow I think, whether it's a light brown or even lighter! Thank you :) xx

    1. Thank you so much! Haha yes, it's so thick! Me too, it looks really pretty! I think lately more people have started to get it again though! :)

  6. I think you have lovely hair. I think a deep red brown would look really nice with you colouring, it would really enhance your eyes. I really like the look of ombre, I thought about doing it myself but I can't even put a regular hair dye on without managing to muck it up, so I think ombre is really stretching myself! x

    1. Thank you! Haha I think Ombre looks nicer if it's messy and not in a straight line! I would just be worried it would turn out the wrong colour if I done in myself! :) x

  7. I used to have hair about this colour and I know you don't want to hear this but the best it ever looked was when I got 'caramel' highlights and I paid for a hair treatment after so my hair was in really good condition and didn't feel all dry and rough. My friends have Ombred themselves, I wouldn't recommend it because to make it look good you have to get it done properly and then the hairdresser can say whether or not the think it would suit you and they may have other options.

    1. No that's fine! I'm so glad you commented this! I've been thinking today what I could do and I love caramel coloured hair but I was just worried it would go brassy or orange! I don't think I would ever do it myself! I allow myself to dye my hair different tones of brown but nothing more than that! I was looking for a photo of your hair on your blog but I can't find one! Thank you so much for your comment x

  8. i love you hair colour and cut, i think that a lighter brown or red would really suit you, i've been wanting to ombre my hair for a while but i'm also trying to grow my hair and bleaching it is quite damaging, i'm sure whatever you choose it'll look lovely x

  10. Ombre is nice but a lot of people are doing it... it's whether you want the same or not. If not go a couple of shades darker/ reddy-purple would look nice. But to be honest I love it natural... but I'm forever changing my hair :P

    1. Yes I agree! It's pretty but almost too done now! Haha thank you! I'm the same I get bored too easily and want to change it :)

  11. To get the red out, you need a green base color the same level to tone it. It would then be a neutral brown. You can find it at a Sally and I could help you out if you decide to. It could still be ombre'd later.

    I found you through the hop.

  12. I bleach my own hair but there is a lot of maintenance involved. Ombre getting a little over done these days. Maybe go a nit redder? I love your hair as is though :)
    I'm a new follower by the way :D

  13. I love Ombre hair but hair is blonde so I can't do it or at least it would be harder! Your hair looks nice though!

    1. Oh yes that's true! It would be harder if your hairs naturally blonde but at least you wouldn't have to bleach it! Thank you x
