In a world where mermaid hair (thanks to Kylie Jenner), ombre locks and balayage are the mane trends of the season, it might get hard to even recognise or remember the actual colour of hair. *Guilty! Although my love for experimenting took me to colouring my hair all sorts of shades of ash blonde and brown, it was only when I looked through some old pictures I realised how much I miss my dark locks!

Don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone, right?!

However over this weekend I probably made the best decision ever! Just in time for Fashion Week (and my mother losing her shit because my blonde hair ended up looking like mehendi), I went over to the Affinity Salon here in Bandra and with the help of Santosh (the hairdresser) and some amazing Wella products, I got my hair did!

And as I patiently waited in my chair with Wella’s Illumina Colour (which has a range of 21 shades) sitting on my head, I started re-thinking if this was a good idea. If I really wanted to go through the pains of bleaching and putting my mane through the damage – But that feeling was short-lived once the towel came off ;)

Once I was taken to the rinse-basin and the towel was taken off, I was more in love with the texture and feel of my hair than the colour!

Yup, after all the Twitter and Snapchat votes between dark brown and black, I went to the dark side – Black! Makes more of an impact, right? But I send lots of love and hugs to those who voted *Virtual Kisses* Now, here’s the before and after…
