It's no secret that I'm over weight or that I'm trying to lose weight. I am losing weight, slowly but steadily and I kind of feel that for me it isn't until I have lost all the weight I need to lose that I can start looking pretty. It's not that I don't like myself or see myself as pretty (I think I have nice eyes and I like it when I smile) it's just that it seems a waste to put effort into making myself look pretty when I'm so overweight.
Or so I thought.
A couple of weeks ago I headed down to London to have the team at Regis do something with my hair. I can't remember the last time I had my hair cut, or the last time it had anything remotely professional done to it and to be perfectly honest it showed; I guess that is why I always wear my hair back in a ponytail. Sitting in the Regis salon and talking to Chris Tilley (who is a member of the artistic team) and Guy Cammarano (the creative director) I found out more about my hair in five minutes than I think I have ever known in my life. Whilst they were honest they were also complimentary and Guy made me realise that my hair is an asset and it's hard to explain but he gave me confidence in myself even before it had been cut.
Guy and Chris left me in the capable hands of Rainey who showed me different colours that she thought would be best for me to have as highlights to add some texture and depth to my hair. It was funny because she had picked out two lighter colours, one that was a match for Top Ender's hair and one that was a match for Big Boy's hair. The colour was put on, my hair was cut and blow dried and I was amazed at seeing me in the mirror. I looked good. Sod that I thought that I looked Great!
