New hair colour?

For a number of years now I've had my hair coloured with a full head of foils & never really thought about doing anything else until I was reading Vogue during Lulu's naptime. The latest edition in Australia has a section on what's in with hair at the moment. Vogue mentioned balayage, which is a more subtle version of ombre hair. It's a great way to go a little more natural in your colour while still having a hint of lighter colour. Unfortunately it doesn't happen overnight. 

One of the mum's from my mum's group came over on Sunday to cut and coloured my hair. She used an overall colour to tone down the remnants of the foils. My hair's looking darker than I've had it in a while, but I really like the colour. I guess I was ready for a change. I'll have to wait a few weeks until the ends of my hair are a little stronger to put in a lighter colour. For now my friend assures me that as the darker colour fades out of the ends they will get lighter. 

Have you changed up your hair recently? Or have you stuck with what works? I'm thinking of going shorter again for winter, to break away from the constant top knot I seem to lazily do almost everyday.
