“I started ex­per­i­ment­ing with hair prop­erly when I turned 15 and de­cided to dye it red while I was on hol­i­day. What in­spired me was Ri­hanna’s red hair in her “What’s My Name” music video. Hair is very im­por­tant to a lot of ladies, hence why we spend so much time and money in­vest­ing in the cor­rect prod­ucts and equip­ment. A lot of time even goes into plan­ning hair­styles. Change is some­thing that’s needed now and again and I do think com­pletely rein­vent­ing one’s look is mo­ti­vated by a big life change. Most women have those ‘safe’ hair­styles that they feel most com­fort­able stick­ing with, so go­ing in for a big chop is usu­ally a sym­bol of a big change that is about to hap­pen in their life. I plan my hair­styles around daily events – if I am go­ing to an event I might want to bring out my gor­geous curls or keep my ma­roon bob to make a state­ment, whereas for day-to-day, on-the-go looks I pre­fer my straight hair. Of course, on some days/weeks you’ll plan your hair­style around the weather con­di­tions. When you’re trav­el­ling to a for­eign coun­try es­pe­cially, not hav­ing your hair­styles a call away can be dif­fi­cult, but I don’t find my­self hav­ing to fuss about sea­sonal hair­styles much any­more.”
