Transitioning from red to blonde ~ a summary by Miss Ruby Rabbit

Hello all,

I've recently made a change and gone blonde!

 And thought I'd share the post that the lovely Miss Ruby Rabbit did about how we achieved my new look!

"Ive had a lot of questions on Saturdays transformation on the lovely Miss Osiria Rose from red to blonde. So here is a little run down on how we worked together to get the result pictured.

We usually bleach and then apply a Directions brand red to achieve Osiria's trademark red hair. But as she would like to do more swimming the red was no longer practical for her lifestyle. I got her to shampoo the week before every day prior to our appointment with head and shoulders anti dandruff shampoo to help with some colour fade. All but the day before. (Never shampoo the day before as it will open up the pores in your scalp and make you more prone to bleach sensitivity)

Our first salon step was to use a colour reducer. These smell terrible but ive found them effective at reducing these direct dyes. We then bleached her roots and then ran the bleach through her ends. I followed up with a Nak amonia free toner in a beige to make the result more natural.

Osirias hair is very resistant and was very responsive to the bleach. We achieved a good result first go but still have a few patches of pink at the back .
Always have these things done professionally.

Things to remember are that Osiria's hair is short so is much healthier than say older hair. Her hair is also coarse and resistant. If you're thinking if a change talk to your salon professional about your options and the best way to keep your hair in good condition. Osiria will be using NAK professional products to maintain the health and look of her hair. We also used Luscious Locks setting spray by me and wet set for styling. Osiria's hair is very reluctant to hold curl so this is the perfect product for her.
Im available by appointment at Retrobilia Boutique in shellharbour."

I cannot wait to bring you more posts as a blonde bombshell!


  1. I wish I could do this, but my hair is too fine and fragile. Always have been. The times I've been blonder I've had to grow it out naturally first. Takes sooo long. It looks so good on you! Can't wait to see more!


  2. I loved the red on you, but golly does the blonde look amazing!!
