I recently teamed up with Cape Town’s colour guru Tracey Serfontein also known for her Hair Studio – Hair by Star Style where she has done hair transformations for the likes of Lakota Da Silva, Tracy Rossiland & TK from Goodhope FM to name a few. Tracey has been in the industry for 10 years and having built up an impressive clientele as such, it gave someone like myself the confidence to put my full trust in her when wanting to experiment with my hair.
I have been dying my hair since the age of 14, so I am no stranger to sitting in the hot seat. I have gone from highlights to lowlights and have had black, brown, red and blonde hair. Having tried and tested all possible hair colours I decided it was time to step it up a notch and add a bit of fantasy colour to my life. Being an avid lover of black clothing I wanted my hair to be my best accessory.
I’ve never followed the notion of fitting in as I always believe one should strive to stand out. As a blogger, your appearance is and should be your supreme marketing strategy. Having said that I know my hair will speak wonders for my personality and give my readers a deeper look into who I truly am as a person.
Tracey and I were very excited to start the process from platinum to lavender and got straight to it in order to produce some lovely images to share with you all. The process was done in two sessions. The first step was taking my hair from a honey blonde to a white blonde, and then finally applying the soft pastel lavender colour a week later.
Hair tips from the colour genius herself – Tracey
- When applying a colour to your hair make sure to leave colour on for up to 3 – 4 hours to ensure the best results.
- Only shampoo your hair twice a week, using a sulphate free shampoo & conditioner
- Ironing your hair can strip it of its colour so make sure the temp is 185 degrees and nothing higher.
