So basically, what happened was, I fell in love with Brittenelle’s hair. I think I spent almost an entire evening scrolling through her Instagram photos, as you do. I knew then, I had to do something about my own excuse of a hair style. I get my hair to around mid length, and every single time, I get bored. My head says: Keep growing it, you will wake up with Blake Lively hair one day. My heart tells me otherwise. I don’t know about you, but the way my hair looks, has always meant a great deal to me. It has to give me those good vibes, you know?
Back to Brittenelle, this photograph below, is what I regrammed on my Instagram page, and you guys all went mental for it. The majority of you telling me to go and get the chop…
As you have probably guessed, I didn’t go quite as far as the ultimate crop, but I did get a fair bit cut off. I had gathered a tonne of inspirational photos over on my Awesome Hair Pinterest Board, and with these in my hands, I took to the only hairdresser I knew capable of carrying out such a task.

Petros Mairoudhiou. This man is an absolute legend and without a doubt, the most talented hairdresser I have the pleasure of calling a friend. He has won like a gazillion hair awards and works for Trevor Sorbie over in Covent Garden. It was my super, cool mother bear that introduced me to this genius, and he so very kindly agreed to sit me down in the salon chair. I swear he thought I had gone a little mad.
Petros gave me a full consultation, talking me through what would look best, and we agreed going for a really short crop, was a big, scary change and I should take baby steps. So I went for a short, sleek bob. I just left Petros to work his magic, knowing his vision would leave me with a smile on my face. He also remembered how ridiculously head sore I am, and was really gentle, which meant a lot.
This is definitely my favourite hair cut to date. All of the weight has been taken out of my hair and Petros has cut it so that it really frames my face. I could not be happier.
Next step? Get rich. So I can hire this man to blow dry my hair every single day of my life. Petros, THANK YOU.
