The year before last, I played it pretty safe with my hair. Of course Iíve experimented vaguely but aside from chopping my waist length hair into a sleek shoulder length Ďdo aged 15 and going from jet black hair to *gasp* caramel brown, Iíve played it pretty safe. This is not through laziness or lack of imagination; rather itís been down to the hairdressers Iíve encountered along the way. See there was Hayley from Toni & Guy who dyed my hair orange, Giuseppe who massacred my hair and made me cry and not forgetting whats-his-name at Rush who took my hair from black to orange only to return to dark brown (what a pigís ear that was!). Regular readers will know that those hair mares are now firmly behind me after I discovered Joeís Salon a few years ago and Iíve been a regular ever since. As our relationship has grown and blossomed, Iíve now reached the enviable stage in the client/hairdresser relationship where you become co-conspirators to drastic change.
