Going over to the dark side with Style Bar!



(Not familiar with Style Bar? You can read my first review/experience over here!)

I finally have the dark chocolate hair I've been dreaming about for months! As you might have been aware, I was growing out my previous blonde hair for what felt like forever and, come March, I had finally reached the point of having long hair that was entirely natural and unbleached. I took that opportunity to experiment with the idea of going darker (something I'd been considering for ages, but didn't want to try while I still had bleach damage). Style Bar Stellenbosch did an amazing job, helping me go just two shades darker than my natural dark blonde as a transition into the brunette world. (If you missed my constant posting on social media, you can see that here!) 6 weeks later, I was ready to take the plunge - I was ready to go much darker! Besides, winter was coming! The timing was perfect ;)

This weekend I went to Style Bar in Tygervalley. I love going to Style Bar, there is just something so pampering about the elegant and glam interior, and of course the staff and stylists are all so nice! 
After years of highlights and damaging bleach, the process of going dark was so pleasant! My hair felt so incredibly silky soft, smelt like almonds and can you believe how shiny it is?! My hair has never been so shiny and healthy-looking before, it's usually been on the dull side. Even now after two washes at home sans professional blowdry, it's still shiny!

Thank you Style Bar - I love my new hair!

    1. Thanks! I almost chickened out, which is why I first went for the "slightly darker" transition shade, which would have been easier to return to dark blonde from
