My Hair Adventure
Last week I did Part 1 of my hair retrospective for the last year and today I am continuing on with Part II starting off with the month of July!
July started off with me dying my super blond hair with just a hint of pink, I really wanted to test and see how pale I could get it. The color is Special Effects Cupcake pink.
I added in a bit more dye very soon after testing out the color and decided to leave my grown out bangs blond around my face.
Right before I left for Vancouver I dyed my hair again with Special Effects Cupcake pink but left it in for much longer so it’d be super bright and saturated pink instead of pale.
My bridesmaid’s do was amazing, totally had to share. I love all the curls and the braid with the blond and the pink interchanging looked super cute.
August was the same color of pink but I filled in the blond and had the great idea of adding Punk Atlantic Blue to the tips of my hair (hard to see in this photo). I loved it but the blue faded every week because I wanted it to be super pale so I basically put it in my hair 10minutes before I was going to shower so in 1 shampoo it would wash out.
Still rocking the pale pink hair and again added in the light blue tips. Special Effect dye lasts a super long time and even though it fades the color is always enjoyable to the end I find.
The blue tips fade really quickly so I didn’t redo them again later in the month but my hair just turned into the most amazing coral color on it’s own and it was really beautiful.
Started October with my even paler pink hair which hadn’t been redone since the first week of August.
As much as I was loving the pale pink hair I really needed to do my roots and anytime I bleach my roots I feel tempted to change up my hair color. I was really curious to see how my organic strawberry blond dye would look with the super faded pink. So I did it and it turned out rather strange looking as even though it’s rather light it stands out a lot beside the pale pink. This color only lasted a weeked. The roots are Herbatint Orange and Manic Panic Wildfire for the tips.
Bangs! I gave myself bangs for the first time since I didn’t really think wanting my bangs back required a hair dresser – it’s a good first attempt and I think I will actually be cutting them again but I want to get the proper scissors first. I also dyed my hair almost completely with the Herbatint Orange leaving only a same line between the strawberyy blond and the red so it looks like a gradient.
Halloween! I just had to share again because I really wish I had this hair forever. I’ve never had extensions or a weave so its fun to play around with wigs and temporary have hair you could never have.
November was a continuation from the end of October except the strawberry blond faded like it does. I actually love the faded color more than the starting off color, I’ve dyed my hair this color in the Fall for the last 3 years and just love it. I was dying by the end to dye it but beside retouching the red I left it because I was waiting for my delivery of Special Effects.
And now for something completely different! My orange and pink hair dye (my camera hates really saturated red colors and the pink is very redish in tone). I am in love, I was waiting to buy more Special Effects and Napalm Orange and Atomic Pink live up their names! I added more of the Atomic Pink more towards Christmas and below is basically what it currently looks like.
I hope you like the journey through what I put my poor hair through! I already have in mind 3 colors for next year and hope to install some synthetic dreads. My other predictions for the next year are more half and half hair as that style is still my go to choice. If you curious to see what I end up doing check on Sunday’s for Self Portrait Sundays as I usually post a hair update once a month.
