Kopper hair in Glanmire is my go to place for my blonde hair. Years of struggling with yellow, bad hair cuts, good hair cuts, short cuts and platinum I got my first seeing to in Kopper almost a year ago. I never could grow my hair beyond shoulder length. It was over processed and dyed to death. Just to show you where I started have a look.
That was the first before and after shot. From yellow to creamy blonde. My own hair is quite ash based I think. I remember someone telling me before that I had an ash flat dark blonde base. How I ended up yellow is anyone’s guess. My aversion to yellow hair comes from the fact I’ve quite high colouring so I need to tone it down a little. I also am
A fan of the tan so that’s another reason I like to not have warm hair.
So that November day I learned quite a lot from Sabrina. And my hair was transformed. Wanting to grow my hair while maintaining condition was going to be a challenge. But As they say … Game on.
Ten months later, lowlights, HiLights and some pretty good products ( I have reviewed them all at some stage) and I’m pretty happy. I just got a restyle which includes a fringe …. I did need to tone it down to make it blonder again if that makes sense. I didn’t have as many lowlights this time though so I’m back a nice bright blonde. I just get highlights , no base breaker or colour on my roots bar the foils. I needed to have it more layered too because I have to wear it up for work.
I also have little styling product on the above picture as I was also getting fitted for Hair Extensions! Just the clip in ones. I need them for a particular style I’m going for which involves volume. I needed to have them matched to my own colour though first. Here’s a tip for extensions.. Get them cut and coloured by your hairdresser and get real hair. You can style that far easier.
All in all from a customer service perspective Kopper is pretty amazing. Sabrina is super talented and knows hair like nobody I’ve ever met. The salon is pretty busy … So if you want a Christmas colour I think now is a good time to book xxxxx and yes they are winners of the coveted U Magazine award! Amazing.
