As you might already know, I usually try to avoid hairdressers. Whenever I have a clear idea of what I want it goes all wrong like that one time when I was 16 and I desperately wanted bright orange hair. The hairdresser thought it would look UNNATURAL (really, bright orange and unnatural?) and decided to go for a natural ginger colour and I decided to cry for an hour. I was brave enough to try a new hairdresser; Esmie Style in the heart of Manchester. The hair salon is very hidden and private and it does not have the whole cold „hairdresser“ feeling. Candles, rich decor and prints of style icons like Brigitte Bardot and my personal favourite Kate Moss make it luxurious but still homely. After a nice welcome I only asked for one thing: Please don´t make me look boring! One wish that the girls definitely fulfilled! Red/orange is absolutely not a colour I would have chosen at the moment but as I am quite adventurous I thought I may as well give it a try and I did not regret it in the least. They first applied a hydrating pre-dye that made my hair feel like new. (after years of bleaching, I wasn´t even able to brush it properly anymore!) After that they applied two different shades that merged into this stunning red shade and blew me away. I got so many compliments for my new colour, it´s unreal! This was definitely not the last time I got my hair done at Esmie!
