I noticed yesterday morning with no small degree of pleasure that the sun we’ve experienced for the past couple of days has slightly lightened my hair. I know, I know, stop the lights! When I was younger any amount of time in the sunshine would have me blonder than an Olsen twin, but as I’ve got older and my time outdoors has decreased (okay, okay, gone to nothing, I admit it), my hair’s natural bleaching takes that little bit longer … In my dreams, this is where I’ll end up:

In reality, my hair has gone through so much suffering at my hands – at the moment it’s dyed brown over acres of red and the odd blonde highlight – that the only natural parts of my hair are the three inches at the very roots. So those three inches are now a dusky blonde, while the rest of my hair languishes in that no-man’s-land between Feria and Nice ‘n’ Easy. Oh, if only I was a true celebrity with my own personal hair stylist.
