Tangle Teezer Compact Styler Shaun The Sheep Side

I purchased the Compact Styler by Tangle Teezer at Hair Expo this year. I had wanted one since they launched and I picked this little one because I needed a good brush to keep in my handbag.

My world has changed so much over the past 2 years and I feel like I need something new to reflect the good point I am at in my life. Only problem is, I really don’t carry blonde all that well (in my opinion). Before I make any rash decisions I wanted to consult a professional, so I asked Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo Awards 2011 Colour Technician of the Year (and he is up for the 2012 gong too!), Matt Clements from Assembly Hair in Queensland, for his essential brown to blonde advice.
