Ever since I can remember, I've loved doing crazy things with my hair. I've made some very bad choices in the past (including letting my sister dye my hair red at home..which somehow led to my roots being red and the rest black -- you can imagine what kind of names I was called at school).
There was a time when I had purple highlights, when I had a soccer mom haircut, when I wanted to have a faux-hawk..from the back. Thankfully, I never gave into that last one. But! One thing I've wanted and never did was blue/green hair.
Step one was getting my hair ombre, which you all know looked something like this.
For the record, I went to a salon to get this done. I was not about to mess with bleach at home and royally screw up my hair. While I think it's fun to experiment, and hair always grows back, I did want to spend some money to get it done well.
After a few months, I was getting bored again. The idea of dyeing my hair came back, and...well. I tweeted yesterday that I took the dive.
A few notes, here.
Please ignore the fact that I did a really bad job and missed spots everywhere. I don't know why I had a light hand with the dye -- it definitely shows in these pictures. I'm sure I'll get it better next time.
Also, yes, I know that it's green. I was hoping for turquoise, but because my hair wasn't as blonde as it needed to be before dyeing, it came out green. Which, to be honest, I'm not that mad about. It sort of reminds me of Sabrina's hair.
Overall, I'm pretty stoked about how the color came out. I am still getting used to it, but for the most part I like it. Again, it's not as blue as I wanted, but I should have known better than to expect blue when my hair was brassy to begin with.
