Dip dye | Barrie Stephen Salons

Dip dye hairDip dye hair

I've had many hair colours and styles over the years, but the one which has endured for the longest is dip dye. It's still my most popular ever post, which makes me think you guys haven't lost the love for it either.

Last week I went to visit the shiny revamped Barrie Stephen salon in Leicester for a proper pampering session, so it was the perfect opportunity to get my locks revamped too.

I was looked after by one of their stylist's Annie, who I clicked with straight away and didn't even mind when she had to brush out the backcombing to get the ombre right *shudders* Before my cut and colour I sat down for a chat with the team and was shown around their new colour lounge upstairs which was rather swish! 

I'm a low maintenance kind of girl and was drooling over the likes of Drew Barrymore in this photograph all week, so dip dye was definitely the way to go. Annie has left much of my original hair colour the same at the roots, with three colours graduated all of the way down. And haven't they done the most amazing job? I'm absolutely in love with the results, when I walked out it honestly felt like I had filmstar hair! 

Thank you so much to the team at Barrie Stephens who were absolutely lovely, I'm thrilled with my new blondilocks and I've had nothing but compliments from my work pals about it - you did a great job!

  16. Hello Claire,
    I'm taking the freedom of leaving you a comment because I'm currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the perception of young women towards today's fashion luxury brands, and if you, or any of your lovely reader, could take 5 mins and complete it, it would be of much much help :)
    Here the link of my survey:
    Thank you very much!
