The one that is afraid of hairdressers. The one that doesn't blow dry their hair. The one that has a bad experience of hair dye. The one that doesn't know how curlers work or backcombing, or plaiting. The one that ties her hair up in a ponytail and chops it off while her Nan stares at her in disgust. That is me and my relationship with hair. In short, I really don't do anything with it.

So when the opportunity to have a healthy hair change at the Drawing Room Salon came up, I jumped at the chance. It was a project which involved many other YouTubers who have uploaded videos on their experience. The project was organised by Mandy and Oskar (The owner of the Salon) who I thank deeply as it was a great experience.

So, what did I have done to my hair?

A quick backstory of my hair. It's thick. Knotty. Long. And a weird gingery colour of me trying to 'naturally' lighten it with lightening spray. So Hannah, who specialises in working with colour set about on my hair. Fun fact Hannah used to dye Niall Horan's hair, I was like omg. So I got my hair bleached with one of the weakest bleach, to give me a natural golden colour. Then she deepened my roots, so I had an almost ombre effect. Finally, Hannah went over with a couple of toners to give my hair a nice warm peachy colour which is perfect for the season. After a few washes my hair has lost most of its peachy tones, and it now more golden. But I really love it, it feels so much healthier and easier to work, this is due to it having a trim and being thinned out by Hector. Cheers, dude!

 When dying our hair they used Olaplex and gave us a bottle to take home, now not having any clue with hair, I didn't realise how amazing Olaplex is. But after going home and doing some research I realise it's a miracle worker with hair and keeps it healthy and constantly repairs it. Evo also kindly gifted us with products to take home and keep our hair in top tip condition. It made me feel like it was Christmas.

I would like to end this post by a little disclaimer that none of this was sponsored and I was not paid for any of this. I am just really happy with one of my first proper professional hair treatment and wanted to take you guys on the journey with me. I would also love to know what you thought about my hair, I will be replying to comments down below. (Be honest!)

P.S- Thanks Ray for the lovely photos.

Thanks

When you are looking at your wardrobe and you see nothing to wear. Nothing. You have a sudden moment of realisation where you realise you have no clothes (other than the 200 old pieces of clothing). You ask yourself, 'What do I do?'... You go into your brothers room and steal his shirts while he is at school, and then when he get's home and questions why you are wearing his shirt, you say you'll give him a shout out on insta if he'll let you wear it out. He agrees and it's happily ever after.

But seriously, wearing boys clothes is something I've always wanted to. I always go into clothes shops and stare at the boys section because honestly, wow, boys do have nice clothes. It's not fair! Grace always used to wear boys clothes, and honestly I used to think it was odd and didn't make sense.. But I have changed, I have finally seen it for myself! They're are no rules. Destroy the gender norms. If you like the look of clothes, buy them, weather it's for Men or Women, that doesn't matter. Because the world is much more unique and diverse than just labelling to Men and Women. So I'm going to try and this way from now on and I will continue to do that, and I'll let you know how it goes guys.

Oh my gosh, It's so hot right now in England. And by hot I mean the English definition of hot, which is basically the term used to describe a glimpse of sunshine. But seriously, you can tell by how shiny I look in the above that it genuinely is looking like Summer has began... "But Grace, Are you sure it's not just your natural glow". So lovely, but nope, it's just a sweaty face. 
So guess what i've purchased in order to celebrate the fact that the sun has actually made an appearance in England? A beautiful pair of Tommy Hilfiger Urban Outfitter Exclusive Dungarees and I am so so happy with them.

To illustrate my excitement for them I thought it was a great excuse for an Outfit Of The day.... which I will own up to now, practically consists of only 2 items of clothing and therefor makes a poor 'Outfit Of The Day' post, but technically that's the beauty of wearing Dungarees, so I do not apologise in anyway and I'm sure both Tommy Hilfiger and Urban Outfitters will back me up (Please, pretty please with cherry's on top cause I love you both to Mars and back, and I spend every penny on you and love you so much yes I do- too keen? nah well.).
