The sun is out, the flipflops are on, and the winter coats have been relegated to the back of the wardrobe. But for some of us, we would much prefer the rain as it means we can hide our wild barnets from view with a hat or umbrella.
Let's face it – during the winter months, a lot of us use hats, coats, jumpers and boots as a form of camouflage. Yes, bundling ourselves up protects us from the elements, but it also means that we can happily scrag that overgrown hair into a ponytail and hide it under our hood, stick a beanie on our heads rather than having to get the wax out, and generally let the grooming slide a little.
But now it's sunny, and although being able to get out and about without looking and feeling like a Inuit is fantastic, it does mean that we can no longer escape the fact that we should have had our hair cut weeks – if not months – ago.
So where to go to rectify the calamity that is on top of your head? Well, here at thebestof Colchester, we can recommend not one, but two exceptional hairdressers – Alter Ego Hair Design and Benjamin Charles.
Both located on North Hill, Colchester, Alter Ego Hair Design and Benjamin Charles have built up fantastic reputations in the area.
