My Hair Cut Before Chemo

My Hair Cut Before Chemo

Most of you will have already seen my hair cut before chemo but if you want to see how I had it cut, I’ve finally edited the video I took on the day!

A huge thank you to Hailey at Nesbitt Hair & Body in Newcastle who kindly let me film the cut :)

I can’t recommend Hailey highly enough, she has cut and coloured my hair a few times since we arrived in Newcastle and it’s been perfect and exactly what I asked for each time.

Here is what it looked like BEFORE this cut (and yes, I did go mad on the filters but look how refreshed and wrinkle-free they make me look!):

As you know, I’ve since had my hair shaved altogether as I lost so much of it – I’ll be posting that video soon – but as soon as it grows back, I’ll be straight back to Hailey to get it styled!

For those new to my blog, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in November 2015. I’ve had a successful lumpectomy and I’m currently undergoing chemotherapy.  You can read more about my diagnosis and treatment plan here.

    The long and the short hair were both beautiful styles, AND you look good with a shaved head too! Not many people suit long, short and shaved, but you are definitely one of them! #brilliantblogposts

    I love the hairstyle, it really suits you short!!
    My auntie is going through Chemo at the min, she had number 6 of 6 on Monday – she has kept most of her hair though – I was really surprised as I assumed everyone lost all their hair.
    We are just keeping out fingers crossed that the Chemo is working, they review next week.
    I hope you are doing ok with the chemo and I am thinking of you.

    You will probably be really brave to try out new styles once your hair grows back. It suits you both long and short. xxx #brilliantblogposts
