Last week I was blonde, a couple of weeks before that I was a brunette. Now my frizzy locks are.. Pink? Safe to say I’m feeling like a bit of a hair chameleon lately.
I’ve lusted after pastel pink hair for aaaages now, after seeing girls on the internet with mermaid hair of all different colours. I even made a whole pinterest board dedicated to my pastel envy.
I’d been putting off dying my own hair for quite a while as I’m not really the adventurous type, I like to blend in with the crowd rather than stand out. I’ve had pink dip dye before which I loved, but that’s about as extreme as I’ve ever gone with my hair.
To start with I was really worried about putting these pictures up as when I went out today a group of girls pointed and laughed at me making me want to run home and grab a box of mousey brown dye and cover my hair with it to make myself look as normal as humanly possible. But then I decided it’s my style, my blog and I’m going to do whatever I damn well please -Insert sassy finger click here-
To achieve this colour I bleached my hair a few times, leaving it nice and frazzled at the ends. Slap my wrists but I’m due a mop chop soon anyway.
The first bleaching episode was an absolute disaster, we ran out of bleach halfway through application, meaning I had to rock the Cruella de Vil look for a couple of weeks until I could do my hair again.
Once I’d bleached it again I bought some Directions Hair Colour in Cerise, I then mixed this with conditioner to make it lighter. After arming my friend with rubber gloves and a tinting brush I got her to put the mixture all over my hair. I’m not going to lie I was terrified.
It took a few tries to get the right colour, it’s patchy but I can live with that, after all it was home done which is always a big no-no when it comes to hair. I’m not sure how long I’m going to keep my hair like this, I’ve been eyeing up lavender locks so maybe I’ll be going purple soon..
I’m off to a blogging event tomorrow so I’m now going to go empty my wardrobe in a frantic attempt to throw together a miserable excuse for an outfit, wish me luck!
