Microbladed brows: All your questions answered

I was too scared to have my eyebrows microbladed for a long time. I was worried about being stuck with a shape or shade that didn’t look right and I just didn’t know very much about the microblading healing process (I mistakenly thought my eyebrows would completely scab over).

On reflection, this is a slightly ironic concern as it looks far more natural than doing them yourself ever could. As my brows are fairly thin and very uneven, I was the perfect candidate and I regret not doing it sooner.

Cut, keep growing or add extensions? Existential hair questions [gifts]

Short bob hairstyles have been a last-minute takeover trend of 2019, likely to continue into 2020 — and they’re really messing up my plan to grow my hair.

To help me decide whether to go for the chop or keep growing I thought I’d try out some clip-in extensions* to see if long hair would look as good as I pictured it to in my head. (SPOILER: It does).
