A Much Needed Change

Oh finals, please hurry up! You are taking up all my time.

Yes, finals are next week. I will have a few weeks off in between semesters. Oh how I crave that right now! Life is so hectic in between school and work.

On another note… yes! I did get my hair changed. I went with the blue green like I planned on. Here are the pictures of the progress.


Tomorrow will mark me having this hair for one whole week. I am loving it! I have had zero regrets, and zero freakouts. This hair is pure amazing! It will be hard to go back to normal colors next year. However, I will keep it crazy colored whenever I am able to. I will also be trying out a different color scheme once this fades out.

It did take three different bleachings to get it blonde enough to have the colors be this blue and green.

Let me know what you think! Also, what colors should I do in the future?


A Much Needed Change

Pain Before Gain

My, my. My week has been so hectic. I have had to work and school work. Not only that, the house is being renovated so I have had to stop to help with that quite a bit. In the past week, I have turned in four assignments. I am really behind schedule. Finals are approaching quickly.

Yesterday was no fun. I managed to slice off my fingernail, completely. I am not going to post pictures since it is pretty gross. It was bleeding for a good thirty minutes, even with firm pressure. I went through six band aids, within ten minutes. They kept getting soaked through as soon as I would put them on. Finally I gave up, got a washcloth, and waited it out. It is still pretty tender, and probably will be for a while.

However, tomorrow will be fun! I am finally going to be getting my hair done. It will be bleached and colored. Not sure if it will be colored tomorrow since my hair is currently dyed black. I read up on it, and it takes time to bleach correctly. However, if I do get color tomorrow I have decided on a mixture of blue and green.

If you have any tips about bleaching and coloring hair, let me know! I would love to hear them. I know I cannot wash my hair with warm water, use a hair dryer, or any of that since it will cause the color to wash out faster. I also know I cannot be wearing my fancy shirts for a while, since the color will bleed if it gets wet (rain, included).

If there are any more tips out there that are a must know, share them with me! (:

I will post pictures tomorrow, even if I only get my hair bleached and not colored. I will have before, after, and during pictures. I am so excited!

Pain Before Gain

A little bit… hairy.

I have been wanting a change in my hair for quite some time now. In a year from now, I have to have “normal” variations of hair color so I want to get the wacky out of my system. I really want to bleach and tone my hair until it is white and then add random colors, but I think I am going to stick with having black hair and adding colors.

I have looked at all sorts of variations of colors and styles and I am leaning towards black at the roots and having it merge into a different color or two. My ideas of color are blue and green but I have not settled on them yet.

After much research, I have decided I would be awful at doing it myself (even though it is cheaper.) Ha, not really. I know myself. When I dyed my hair black, my forehead had black spots for two weeks. Who knows how I would do with bleach. I would end up visiting the salon anyway, so I will end up paying even more to fix what I screwed up. I am going to stick with going to the salon the first time around.

Researching even more, I have decided on a salon but I am still going to go talk to them and ask questions in person. We can never be too careful. I know the pricing from the website, but I really want to talk to them about ideas of what to do before I fully commit to making an appointment.

If you have any ideas on colors or color styles, let me know! Fading sounds nice to me, but I also like the streaks as well as multiple colors in random “designs”. Yes, I have been looking non stop at pictures over the past few months.

Have you done anything “crazy” to your hair? Do you know of someone who has? How did it turn out?

A little bit… hairy.
