A New Hairstyle!

Hello everyone!

Guess what? I had my mop chopped!
Left: before Right: after.
I decided to go with something different from my usual highlights and trim as I was feeling bored with my current hairstyle. I wasn't completely sure what I wanted but I have seen middle partings becoming increasingly popular recently so I decided to give it a try. 

I also had some low lights put in my hair as well as my usual highlights. This broke up the block blondness that I've had for so long.

I went for a layered look along with the new middle parting so it looks really choppy around my face but I didn't lose anything off the length at the back. 

Here are some pictures:

I absolutely love this new hairstyle. I was nervous at first because I've never had a middle parting before and I didn't know if it would suit me. Also, I have a widows peak so I wasn't sure if that would allow for a middle parting. I did have to have it slightly off centre because of this. 

I have found a way to keep the flicks at the side of my face going backwards by curling them that way. Haven't quite got the hang of just using a hairdryer and round brush yet, but I'll get there! 

Overall, my hair feels a lot lighter. I have very thick, long and curly hair so it was getting a bit ridiculous every time I washed it so these layers should halve my the time it takes...hopefully. Once I'm totally settled with the middle parting and doing the flicks myself I will be really happy with this new style. 

What do you think? Do you like the middle parting or are you a fan of the side fringe?

Thanks for reading!

Thoughts of the day
  • It's taken me two and a half days to get up to film 7 of my Harry Potter marathon. I still have one and a half to go but I'm ploughing through and really enjoying myself. I'm realising things I never noticed before. Like when Moody points to the left when Harry enters the maze in film 4. I never noticed that before! Lol. 
  • Still wish Dumbledore didn't die.
  • I bought the first book, City of Bones, of The Mortal Instruments series as I'd heard it's a good read. Didn't know there's about 6 in the series! Haven't seen the film either. 
  • I have an ELF haul and another little beauty haul to write soon!
  • Had a shopping trip planned for tomorrow but I've heard that it's going to rain all day so it will probably be another in doors day.
  • I can really tell that the Autumn is on its way, the dark nights and mornings are drawing in..it's no fun at all. Are you a winter or summer person? I like the look of winter but it's much easier to function in the summer. 


  1. Your hair looks really pretty. I've been thinking of doing the same thing with my fringe recently. It looks so nice on you I think I am going to go through with it! x
