It took me decades to finally change my signature black afro style. I would often change the design of it – I have always enjoyed cutting my hair, but never the colour. Until last year, when I got introduced to the world of colour changing. It literally changed me for good. I could no longer keep my hair colour for more than 3 months. Seriously. Here I talk “highly addictive content”. Are you ready? Follow me… 🙂
I think I am now finished with the bleaching process of my hair. As I have shown in this post here, It has been a while I have been wanting this change and had an almost irresistible opportunity to make it happen, in a very reliable place that knew how to deal with my curls and used best quality products.
This time I did everything with Tonja Dahlen at Adam og Eva Strøget, in Oslo. She is known for her skills in coloring and to be bold as I am – actually Tonje is both great professional and person. She is flexible and creative, so, one good choice for anybody 🙂
And then I became blonde.
It has been such a great adventure with happy endings. Let me make it short:
I have been considering to get blonde for a while now. Since the end of my pregnancy I have been visiting professionals to get advice and find the right one to help me through my blonde ambition. Finally I got to my friend Eirik Thorsen from Adam og Eva Grensen, in Oslo. The invited me to be a model on a Redken show he carried out in Sweden together with Tonja Dahlen from Adam og Eva Strøget – also in Oslo.
They say our hair is the frame of our faces. I think the importancy of the hair in your overall look is as important as your clothes. When it looks just like you want it to, It can takes your look to the next level.
That’s how I feel with my new hair design. It looks so edgy, so high end. I am overwhelmed. Maybe it sounds just like, ok, you got a hair cut, so what? So? I gotta tell you a few facts then.
I live in Oslo and spend a lot of time in Rio. In Oslo I haven’t found yet the best fit for me when it comes to a hairdesigner, it ain’t simple when your hair is just so so so much different from the rest of the population. My hairdresser lives in London and also spends a lot of time in Rio. If our schedules don’t match while we are both in Brazil, I got to make it to London then.
Last time I had a haircut was 12 dec, 2014. Ten months ago. The initial design developed each month and I ended up having several shapes until my hair finally reached its usual final state before a urgent haircut – triangled shapes and just a bunch of curls with no design. I had to go.
With the excuse of my past birthday, I decided to give myself a super gift of taking a short trip to London and getting Neandro Ferreira doing his magic on my curls.
Yes, it is worth it. After the session with my I got back in the shapes I like – not so short curls, overall volume, irregular lengths, some longer edges, lighter looking haircut.
Neandro is one of the best hairdresses I know. His creations speak for themselves, The longlasting designs are modern and high end. It is like a siged piece of art. Sassoon academy, beauty director the largest media in Brasil, trendsetter and my friend. I invite you to have a look at his work and let me know what you think. He is an artist.
