Got Dip Dyed!!!


Had an amazing day today (or yesterday, I’m writing this very late at night). Not only did I potentially find the best eyebrow threading place (Hena, in Finchley – have only been once so far so bear in mind I might have just been lucky!), but I also got a fantastic dip dye at Lisa Shepherd in London!! AND, the Director of the salon (who, btw, has styled BOTH the Olsens) was the one to enrich my locks!!

Have a look at the little video of it all happening.. (thank you Charlotte for filming!)

The idea behind this dip dye was to have a more wearable, less harsh version than a lot of the DIY jobs people are sporting at the moment. There’s nothing wrong with that look – I actually really like it! But it doesn’t suit everyone, most brunettes would really struggle pulling off an at home dip dye. For a more sophisticated, blended look that is far more versatile for different skintones this version at Lisa Shepherd is definitely better.

I have had my hair dip dyed previously, if you remember this post here, and whilst I loved it back then I really wanted something more statement this time – but still well blended and without clashing against me. My main concern was for it not to be brassy or clash with my skin.Well, I definitely got what I wanted! It actually exceeded my expectations and I’m so thrilled with it. It looks great all shiny but I can imagine it looking awesome all surf hair-y too! What I discovered was the general rule for Asian skintones was to not let the bleached colour come up too high so it’s directly against your face – that’s the main trick to fighting the clash!If you’re interested in getting a dip dye like this (or not like this, exactly, like in a similar cool way but for your own hair), I have an exclusive offer for readers of this blog! When calling in to book your treatment (and it can be any treatment – not just a ¬†colour one!), quote Make Up to Make Out and get 25% off final treatment price PLUS a free shampoo and conditioner! Pretty damn good, eh? Call Lisa Shepherd now on 0207 467 9560.

Do you guys love it as much as I do???


DISCLAIMER: PR treatment

  • Absolutely adore the new look! So gorgeous and such a lovely shade too!


  • I really, really want to try this now! In the past I thought ‘what’s the point – it’ll look wrong on dark hair’ but I like how it looks on you :-) xx

  • Kate & Zena

    You’re dip dye looks gorgeous!

    I’m officially violet hued! (Well, highlighted.) I couldn’t get you any sunscreen (they’re so expensive here! They’re $11 a bottle! The one in your post is $12! OUCH!), but you might want to see if you have a West or South Coast reader. Sunscreen tends to stay the same price all year there (unlike here, where it spikes in the winter and is cheaper in summer.)
