Becoming a mermaid…

So, although I haven’t specifically written about it on here, last year my sister was diagnosed with bowel cancer, and she and I decided to do some fundraising.

As we thought she might lose her hair during chemo, I decided to let her live vicariously through my hair instead, so after raising nearly £1,000, I went off to see my lovely hairdresser (at Vente Tsunami in Headington, Oxford in case you’re interested – they are the best!).

Me and K ready to get started – I think she was more excited about it than I was!

Yeah, it’s so not my colour!


Now for the fun part! Colours going on!




As K put it, “I look like I’ve just murdered a smurf!”

Transformed! And I love it!
