I haven’t done a #motd (‘makeup of the day’) post for a while, so today’s write-up is a breakdown of what went on my face to create my last selfie upload on Instagram:

They say a significant portion of your selfie game is determined by the state of your hair, and I can’t agree more. I have already been raving about the balayage blonde coloring I got done by the very talented Roger from Station 10 salon (located in Ramada Jumeirah) – click here if you missed it. For more information and appointments, give them a call on 04 7027098.

Have you seen my brand new blonde hair on Instagram? 🙂

But first, let me tell you my hair coloring story so far… I’ve been experimenting with my hair color since my late teens. I started off with organic henna-infused hair masks, and I loved the hint of amber it lent to my tresses. My hair is naturally a deep, dark brown and seems to seep in colors very well. By my early twenties I was buying DIY hair coloring packs, and was known in my circle for my fiery red hair. I believe it gave me an edge, and made meek old me stand out that little bit more among a crowd of strangers.
