Okay, so my post yesterday was a bit deceiving because I only showed a blonde chunk of hair. I didn't go ahead & bleach my entire head of hair or anything... I just bleached a hefty chunk of it.

Those of you who know me (or have followed my blog in the past) know that I easily get bored of my hair styles & have had my hair every colour of the rainbow before. I'm currently growing out a very awkward style (with very short & very long sections doing their own damn thing) and I was just really itching for a change. The last time I actually had coloured hair was in 2007, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I've had my natural hair colour for almost 5 years! So some of my commenters are right... this was bound to happen ;)
Going into my hair adventure, I has thinking of doing an "ombre" effect (shown above). I LOVE this style cause you never have to worry about roots, so it's pretty lazy & easy & cheap... and I am so totally all of the above.
But when I noticed the bleach lifting so quickly, I got a bit excited & decided on the spot that instead of a gradual 'ombre' from black to brownish to blondish, that I wanted that high contrast black & blonde.
Obviously, my hair shown here is NOT the finished product; I hate when my hair is bleached & not toned (to get rid of that coppery yellow tone). I mean, I could pretend it's supposed to be like gaga's dyed-yellow hair, but I just feel like I look like an asian dude that home-bleached his hair wrong, lol. So I've just decided to keep it like this for a couple of days to see how I feel about the blonde & then I'll either:
- tone it so that my hair is black & platinum (whiter blonde)
- go for some crazy colours so that my hair has a "dip-dyed" look
I'm leaning towards the latter. Sonic Green is calling my name.
my DIY spirit, willingness to improvise & fearlessness of looking ugly are a bad combo for the health of my hair. Oh well, It'll be fun for you guys to watch. hahah
