So, I’m flying out on my big Helly Hansen adventure this week and I just had to get the hair did for the big occasion. I’ve been wanting to go ‘granny grey’ for quite some time now. I had a consultation with the super talented hair technician, Kim Kavanagh from Envy Hair Care, in Coolock and I showed her a few photos of what I had in mind.
Before and After
Bringing photos of models and celebrities whose hair you love can be good for communication between you and the hair technician, it gives them a sense of the look you’re going for. The hair technician may have suggestions for how to adapt the trend to suit you and can guide you in making your final decision. You have to be realistic too, you can’t go in with black hair and expect to leave with platinum blonde locks (I’m guilty of this).
To achieve the ‘granny grey’ look that I wanted, Kim used volume 20 to remove the existing golden tones in my hair.
Looks can be deceiving – this quickly transformed to a deep purple when it was applied to the hair.
Kim applied Joico 3 N with a dash of violet inhaler on the roots of the hair.
Kim also went in again with volume 20 on select sections of the hair.
To achieve the grey/silver ends Kim applied Joico 9 A.
The team in Envy Hair Care are so friendly and accommodating. They girls really went out of their way to ensure I enjoyed my experience, they even ran into the takeaway next door and got me a chipper as my hair appointment was straight after work and I was starving lol
I can’t believe I’m finally GRANNY GREY!! It’s taken so long to get here and the team in Envy Hair Care were able to transform my entire look in about 3 hours, which wasn’t long considering I’ve been waiting months for this hair transformation.
