Why I Cut My Hair Short With Sassoon

I got my hair did. That’s basically what this post is about. I had it done a few months ago and went tentatively short, then this time I went the whole hog and got it proper short. Sassoon have truly restored my shaky faith in hairdressers so I thought I’d share my experience, what I asked for and how I decided what to get, to help you make the jump if you’re teetering on the edge!

So this was just going to be a post full of pictures of me sexually grabbing my hair but then I thought it might look like some form of soft porn plus who doesn’t love an outfit? I also had these new sandals that I basically just wanted to show off. I love them incase you hadn’t guessed.

This weather is on crack and I no longer know how to dress myself, so I ended up with a weird mix of sandals on my feet and a chunky knit on my top, it kind of works though.

Getting The Chop – Why Sassoon

So as I kind of explained previously I already got my hair cut at Sassoon before – you can see my video about it here. I went pretty short from my previous longer locks, and this time, I went even shorter. When in Rome?

I feel like looking back the first time I got it cut it was such an in between length and I love the shorter style, I feel like a smart lady. OK, maybe not quite a lady but I like it and I like the way it makes me feel. Of course I never would have even dared to go for this kind of chop if I hadn’t already experienced the talents of the lovely girls at Sassoon.

Having the head colourist and one of the top stylists on your side, you know you’re in safe hands and just by talking to them about what I wanted I knew they knew what they were doing. I was first told that the length I wanted wouldn’t work. I wanted shoulder length but they quickly explained the hazards of this length – it flicking out and never sitting right being one of them. I went for slightly longer, I’m just not ready for slightly shorter yet!

They also asked about how I style it on a day to day basis, adding in a few light layers so that when I curl my hair it’ll sit nicely – I didn’t even know things like that mattered! I have honestly never discussed things like this with my hairdresser before, I say I want it cut and she does whatever the hell she wants – hence why I don’t trust hairdressers all too easily.

I am so happy with what Mia’s done with the colouring of my hair. She’s given me some really natural highlights using colouring only – no bleach, so that it grows out naturally and just generally gives a more natural look and feel and isn’t too harsh on my hair.

Hair Maintenance

I was also treated to a Chevron Heat Treatment whilst I was there. It’s a hair mask that’s activated with heat and helps to protect and maintain the strength and shine of coloured hair. I can honestly feel such a difference now, the new length and the treatment have done my hair so much good.

I’ve been using Sassoon products for about 3/4 months now and the difference to just using whatever’s on offer at the supermarket shows. Now that my hair’s short and shiny I feel like I’ve been given a second chance so now I’m vowing to keep it healthy! My favourite product to use is probably the leave in conditioner! It’s great for when you’re in a hurry but want to give your hair some extra lovin’!

If you’re thinking of getting your hair done too, I went to the Covent Garden Sassoon Salon and I saw Mia and Roxy! Find your closest salon here >> http://www.sassoon-salon.com/
