In my HAIR.
Last year it was pink and purple extensions and a butterfly, the year before it was a cotton candy pink wig, and this year I've decided to go for the real deal:
(You all know how much I hate FAKING IT, so pink extensions won't any longer be an option.)
Proper dyed tips. With a colour fade from violet to cotton candy pink in my naturally dark brown hair. Why should only Blondes have all the fun.
available by appointment in his New York workshop, I have to think of a solution. (By the way: Thanos Samara has the most amazing website. So cool/ crazy/ inspiring/ freaky. Check it out at www.donteverloveme.com )
So I searched the Internet for some cool DIY hair tip dye project, and realized that it seems like I'm on my own. Chickens.
Something like that would never put me off, though.
So today I started out with a mood board.
I went chemical shopping, anyway.
(Of course I will wash, condition and dry the hair after every step. I'm a good gal.)
This is where I start at: Proper dark brown hair.
Note: Since we are working with BLEACH, wear white clothing only.
Done. Now, I have to soak it in for 45min.
After what feels like hours later, I wash it out, condition and blow dry, and the result is: Zero.
OK, not zero. A very faint fade to lightish brown.
Guess I have to redo this step once. Or twice.
What now really is hours later: The colour has faded (into a light brown), and so has my motivation.
I now massage the pink colour into the dry, light brown strands, and paint on the purple to create a fade. Leave it on for another hour.
Meanwhile, my friend has handed me a blonde extension, to try it on 'her' hair.
There we go, this time without bleach. I paint the colour straight on.
PSS: If you happen to be my Boyfriend, you may now give me a freaked out phonecall.. ;)
