Paint my love


Here my hair is my love. When it comes to pampering myself, I always look up to these- Hair style and a massage. This time I went with Hairstyle to celebrate.

Celebrate what you ask? Well, come 2nd May and I complete 4 years of working at the same International company. It’s quite a big deal looking at how many faces I’ve seen come and go.

In order to celebrate, I decided to treat myself to a haircut and hair color at the very stylish B Blunt at Bandra. I was pretty excited knowing what I was going in for and knowing I was in safe hands. I climbed the stairs to the Salon like a gleeful child after making sure there were no cameras around watching me. I looked with awe at the beautiful models in the frames put up at the reception. I even watched the fashionista-like male and female stylists parade up and down thinking – oh these guys must love their job. I grabbed a mint placed at the desk, so that the stylist wouldn’t know I ate prawns for lunch. And then I waited patiently for 40 mins.



As the senior stylist Gayatri was discussing my hair texture and volume with another stylist, I overheard the other one say, “Great, She’s got Virgin hair”. Seriously that’s the term for hair that’s never been coloured before!



As Gayatri explained to me what look she thought would suit me, using all those typical “professional hair stylist words” I just replied with “I trust you”. Sure she knew she had some responsibility there.


After a quick hair wash including a little massage, it went chop chop from there. I wanted to go with Mahogany brown, but she suggested some blonde streaks. Oh also, what most of us call highlights, they call it hair painting (that’s why my post title). After the painting was over, I waited for a little more than half an hour, and sipped on some coffee.


After the final wash here’s what my hair looked like.


I never imagined blonde on myself before, but now I know it isn’t a big no no for the future. I’m happy with it as of now, I’ve been told it will get brighter with time.. Let’s see.. Not many have seen it yet so I’m still anxious about people’s reactions. Let me know what you guys think.

And that’s how my hair lost it’s virginity. 😉

Lots of love,
