Introducing: My new Chocolate Brown blunt hair with Bangs (coloured by Illusions Hairdressers, Wetherill Park)
Wearing: Maiden Love Shorts (thanks to Maiden Love); Coussinet Spire Necklace (thanks to Coussinet); H&M Parker; Cali & Cale Wedges (c/o Undergroup Showroom)

Although I've already got a couple of photos up of my new Chocolate Brown hair (note the very blunt cut) on the blog, I realised I haven't introduced it formally to my readers.
After a year and a half of Balayage hair, I decided, after a few months of no maintenance and touch ups that my blonde hair was starting to look ratty. Split ends started to appear half way down my hair, my ends were dry, my blonde hair was untoned. And to be honest - my hair can sometimes reflect my life and where it was going at that moment; I didn't maintain my life so I didn't maintain my hair.
And I've had some drastic changes to my life - people coming and going; my friend getting married, my reflection of my hopes of getting married surfaced, my heart being put down on the chopping board to be exposed etc etc has led me to just start a new Hair Chapter in my life. Sounds so corny but its true.
And girls always need new Hair Chapters to represent a new direction or fresh start. So I went down to Illusions and dyed my balayage to a rich Chocolate Brown (I stressed no reds or warm browns, I wanted a 'cooler' brown), widened my bangs/fringe and cut about 7CM off my length to get a blunt look at the ends.
Some people say I look younger, some people say I look more mature. I did it to refresh myself and my life. My girlfriends know how I feel - my close friend dyed her hair to mark her moving away to Korea and starting hew new job. My other friend always changes his hair for job interviews. I have another one who cut off most of her hair when she and her boyfriend broke up. So this is definitely not an unfamiliar concept for girls and boys.

So on all these notes, I want to stress that although I have been sad and painfully honest and looking suicidal in my last posts... that in truth, I am much happier now. So much happier. I found that expressing my sadness through my blogposts, ironically, made me not want to cry in real life. I haven't cried. I felt weird because I usually spend my nights doing just that.
My close friend (bless her) has tried to let me to cry, has encouraged it, has endorsed it; but my body just doesn't want to. Maybe it's a sign that I'm stronger than I think and that maybe I've just matured. Or maybe I just be crazy and have been bottling it up and soon  explode one day. But we shall see what happens in the month of May. It isn't over yet....

Girls! Prom is fast approaching and along with the perfect dress it’s time to figure out the hair do. We all know that thin, brittle hair won’t hold that perfect style, and expensive hair extensions from the salon are just not in the budget. Never fear, Servehair’s Clip in hair extensions can be styled just like your normal hair and are perfect for getting the most out of your special night. With our clip in extensions, you have the freedom to choose the right look for your hair, your style and your dress. Here are some of the basics to get you inspired.

Braids
From The Hunger Games to the red carpet, braids are all the rage. Your Servehair extensions will look fantastic plaited up in as many styles as you can think of. One of the virtues of the braid is how versatile it is. There is the side braid, the half braid, the full up do braids, and everything in between. You can also add bling to your braid with barrettes, beads, flowers and much more. Check out this awesome list of braids ideas.

Wear it down.
Leaving your hair down is a great way to get your date’s attention. Studies show that men prefer long hair. If you have straight hair, try accenting it with bangs and getting out those few stray kinks with our ceramic hair iron. Curl your extensions with our triple threat curling iron for either tight curls or beach waves. Either way, your hair will wow as it cascades over your shoulders.

The up-do
Wearing your hair up is the classic prom look, but this doesn’t limit you to ballerina buns and the bump, there are lots of looks perfect for girls of all walks of life. If you are sporty and enjoy short dresses, the long ponytail can help you stand out and express yourself. Messy buns are also big on the scene right now and can be done with both straight and curly hair.
