(Photo by Bauer-Griffin) I was a bit shocked to see Lily Allen as a blond but the more I look at her, the more I like it. I have never been a blond and with my olive skin tones I don’t think it’s for me. I’ve had all sorts of colours in my hair. When I was at university every time I dyed some fabric I’d stick my head in the vat, it was mainly pink and orange. I tried to dye it navy blue once but the colour didn’t really stay in. Recently I had a friend who bought some hair dye from Boots and she didn’t do the 48 hour dye test – how many of us really do? Anyway she had an allergic reaction to the hair dye – her whole face was completely swollen! It took a couple of weeks for all the swelling to go down. So either do the test or go to the pros! I love this picture of Lily with the Chanel sunglasses. These glasses are fab, they are the Chanel round retro style frames with the quilted temples, style 5120. Dying your hair is great fun and it changes how you look completely. Did you ever wonder why most make over programmes wait until the last moment to show the hair and make up? I’ve always felt that hair is your biggest accessory: a good cut is essential and colouring your hair creates an instant change – a brand new look!
