My New Favourite Design House: HALSTON HERITAGE.


Legendary American label Halston launched its hip diffusion line in 2009, and has since garnered a cult following amongst style-setters like Sarah Jessica Parker and Chloë Sevigny. The epitome of Studio 54 glamour, Halston Heritage evokes the brand’s timeless appeal reinventing archive pieces into effortlessly elegant silhouettes. Do like the original high-living Halstonettes, Bianca Jagger and Anjelica Huston and get retro-chic in asymmetric jersey dresses paired with oversized totes and clutches in silver, orange and cerulean.

I’m having a bit of an image change…


cocktailer

you heard it correct, I’m doing away with my age old bleached blonde locks… SHOCK HORROR INDEED!

We’ve done a little research, but basically, I just wanted feedback from people who have already dyed over bleached blonde. Last time I tried to go red it faded within one wash and basically went pinky/purple; this is AFTER using 4 boxes of dye! oo-er!

I know any sane hairdresser would not go within an inch of her/his life of my hair and to be honest, theres noway I’m having an unstable mind touch it either! So I have little choice but to have the wife – as he usually tends to anyway! ;o Unless any lovely hair stylist would like the service of pursuing colouring my locks? I grew them myself! 🙂

SO, what is this business about a ‘filler’ before using any other colour ontop? What are your experiences and what ‘filler’ colour is best?

Any info will be greatly appreciated as I’m wanting to get changing shade very soon!

Ms. Judy Pink.
