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?
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!
Today has been very productive, in a sense. I was able to buy what I needed from Walmart. That was an adventure in itself. Even if you go there to buy two things, a person always ends up staying an hour. That has been my experience anyway.
I have also officially sent in my application to the four year university I wish to attend. That was very exciting! Once I finished that, I requested transcripts from my current college to be sent over. I should hear in a month if I have been accepted or not!
I was able to print out my school related, credit related papers and made a basic outline of a possible summer class schedule. When registration opens, hopefully I get the classes and professors I already mapped out. I should probably take two classes since it is a short semester, but I have three on my list. I still have time to decide.
Also, today, I got a 100 on one of my quizzes. I have three more to take today. I also have to turn in the final draft of my essay. Another essay I have to start on is a networking essay. I have all the information, I just have to type it up and send it. On top of all the previous mention items, I still have to do multiple programming exercises (I am a couple weeks behind so I have a nice sized pile). One more thing to get completed is to come up with a topic for my research paper. We have a list of things we cannot choose, so maybe I can come up with an idea that is broad enough to cover 1800 words, but is still accepted as a topic. Too bad Harry Potter is not an accepted choice! Hopefully I can get most of this done today, even though the day is mostly over. I still have tomorrow afternoon as well, if I do not get finished tonight.
As for my hair, that has been put on hold for a little while. I need more paychecks as well as time to actually get it done. I still need to make an appointment. My hair, though, is not my main priority at this point. Hopefully I will have it done before May!
Now it is time to go back to my homework. Maybe I will not get distracted anymore, though most likely I will be!
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?
