New ‘do

4 Nov

Happy Friday, everyone!

I was lucky enough to have a half day at work today so I scheduled an appointment and got my hair re-colored. I went for a more intense ombre look and I am in LOVE with the outcome….wanna see??

Te gusta?

I have to give props to Malin at Studio Västra Sandgatan for all her good work 🙂 And if you like what you see, come to me and I can give you something special to take to her (as in a coupon) if you decide to go see her too!

Don’t forget to check back in a little bit for another day of the photo challenge!



How do you like my new ‘do, (h)ombre?

15 Sep


So I decided that since the fall is quickly approaching (actually it has been in Sweden for a month now) that I would switch up my hairstyle and try for the ever-popular ombre look. For those of you who aren’t sure what “ombre” means it is defined as “shaded or graduated in tone: said of color” according to

Thus, my hair is a darker brown at my roots that slowly fades into a lighter blonde at my tips. I decided that this would be the best hair color for me right now, since a. it’s easy to manage since no highlighting is involved and b. I want to darken my hair but keep a little lightness, so now I have the best of both worlds with dark on top and light on the bottom.

I’ve been trying for the longest time to understand how to do the fishtail braid and I finally came across a tutorial on YouTube that made it super easy! If any of you are interested, I can upload my own tutorial so you can do it on your own! It’s really not that hard!
