Part Deux of my Hair Transformation series need not much introduction. If you're new to following me on social media, and if I assume you've read Part I, let me now bring you the pleasure of introducing the many shades of my past-self. Old friends and followers, I hope you enjoy reviewing these quality throwback pics as much as I did ploughing through this post! It's a picture-heavy one, taking you back to the different colour changes I've gone through from the very first time my hair made contact with hair dye, up until the last look right before the big chop. I spent days digging these up from the depths of all my Facebook albums - oh but where art thou, Bebo? - and had a good battle with my 20 year-old self whether letting these photos resurface the Internet have a good shot at ruining my reputation or.. maybe not so much. We're here now, hold on to your cuppa.. 



They say that a woman who cuts off her hair is about to change her life, and I'd like to believe that that is what had happened to me. There is usually a direct correlation between what's happening on our heads and what's happening in our lives - my big chop signalled the ending of my past relationship and turning 18, which symbolised the point of my life where I have had to make decisions such as what I want to do and where I want to go for college. I was going through a lot of changes, and so I chose to embark my change of heart through the change of hair. For me, it meant shedding of old skin, and almost like pushing a reset button on my life.



There isn't quite a nicer way of putting it - if you think throwing a Valencia filter on your #selfie was cutting it,  I'm afraid you've been doing it wrong, my dear! In today's post I share to you my Instagram editing "routine", through the use of iPhone screenshots to guide you along the (what is rather a psycho fussy) process of how I edit my Instagram pictures. If you're curious or actually want to be inspired with how I do it, please keep scrolling!
