What I Wore Wednesday: Rainbow Room Radiant Orchid Dip Dye

So I've not blogged in 40 days--sorry about that! Things have been hectic and crazy around these parts. First I won a radio contest and my Dad was in Scotland for Christmas and Blondie Boy's birthday which was amazing. With holidays, birthdays and visitors I just barely even cracked the laptop open. Then unfortunately the week after my Dad left my Grandma Jane passed away and I flew home to Ohio for her funeral.  I hope y'all understand why I've neglected my blog so much and hopefully I use this as an opportunity to come back and blog more in general!

I'll admit it. I let my hair get out of control. I went six months without a cut or highlights and it went from unintentional ombre to just straight up grown out mess. Luckily Courtney and the team at Rainbow Room International George Square came to my rescue and got me ready for the new year with new hair.


First off I have to say that Courtney was amazing. You know when you find that perfect stylist who knows exactly what you mean and can see what you envision in your head? That was totally her. I immediately trusted her after talking to her and even before I saw my hair I knew I'd found my new stylist!

Obviously I needed a trim and shape and my highlights sorted out but I also decided it was time to mix things up a little bit and have some fun! I went blonder than I've been for awhile and without knowing it made my hair bang on trend for 2014.

Radiant Orchid Dip Dye

I ended up losing several inches and got a purple and pink dip dye to go with my brighter blond locks. I've not had funky hair since my pink under layer two years ago and it is so nice to have a bit of colour back. I love how it looks curly and it's super cute straight, too. A few days after I got it done Pantone announced that its colour of the year for 2014 was Radiant Orchid. Who knew I was such a trendsetter?

Even Pantone themselves thought Courtney nailed Radiant Orchid! I'm loving my new hair and am so happy to have found someone who I can whole heartedly trust to do my hair.  I can not recommend Rainbow Room International George Square enough if you want something stylish and modern but that is also you. They don't try to force a style on you that you can't handle but they are ready to push the envelope as well. 

Are you doing anything new with your hair or style for the new year? 








Let's be friends! Find me here:

Transatlantic Blonde was provided a cut and colour free of charge for the purpose of this review but all opinions are my own. I am so picky about my hair and if I didn't like it you would know--I only speak the truth!

I have the accidental ombre going on too! I'm way overdue for some color :) What you did is super cool — how long does it last? And yes, right on trend with the color of the year. oh and WELCOME BACK!

I love your hair, I would never have the guts to go for it, though I too have the unintentional ombre look going on at the moment!

The thing with dip dye is if you end up hating it, just cut the ends off :)

The pink hasn't faded much but the purple has but that is kinda just what happens. I'm going to put a lilac rinse over it to perk it back up!

Your pink hair was probably the pinnacle of my home hair dyeing escapades :)
