MID-LENGTH SUBTLE OMBRE (I CHOPPED OFF MY HAIR!)


As I student my hair was very much a DIY job and it hadn't been cut for about a year and a half. So when I started earning some money again I decided to invest in a good hair cut and a salon ombre.

So here we have my best dressed men from the Golden Globe awards!
