|A brunette that spends a lot of time in the sun|
How time flies! I can’t believe that it is almost six weeks since I last visited Liz Edmonds, colour director at Daniel Galvin. Thanks to this wonderful lady I don’t have any nasty orange bits in my hair, which considering the colour correcting Liz has to do, is a miracle in itself.
Liz set to work. Firstly, she examined my hair in the natural daylight – you can tell this is a salon that specialises in colour. I hate it when colourists take you downstairs and rely on electric light to judge your hue and skin tone. I think it why a lot of mistakes occur.
After the usual dark-blonde shade (which, on my hair, comes out light brown) was applied to my roots, Liz took me over to the basin for a “colour bath”. Apparently, this dye, although permanent, has a lower pH than other colours. The hair cuticle remains closed during the process, sealing in the hair’s natural moisture so hair looks healthier.
A colour bath is a slow process – Liz said it could take around six months to get my hair perfect – but that is a small price to pay for beautiful tresses.
My locks shampooed and conditioned, I was now ready for my stylist, Megan. As it was raining and my hair is fine and fluffy, she said that we should keep it curly. She put in some extra bounce, so my hair would last. It sure did. It looked perfect for days.
As for the colour, I’m now a brunette that looks like she spends a lot of time in the sun. After leaving Liz, I walked into a store and one of the girls who works there and came up to me and said: “Wow, your hair looks amazing!” I can’t ask for more.
