Remember back in February when I put a streak of blue, purple, and pink in my hair? I retouched that streak a couple of times, but after nine months the colours had mostly been washed/highlighted out, except for one little streak of blue that had faded to a light turquoise. Which I loved. Loooooooooved.
For the past few weeks I’d been thinking I should re-dye the blue, or maybe add a few more streaks, or maybe get some new dye and do turquoise instead. Or maybe…
YEP. What you see here is a mix of three different colours.
Atlantic Blue, Lagoon Blue and Apple Green (I know ~Punky Colours~ are so cheesy, but they sell them at the drugstore by my house for cheap)
My hair was already (mostly) blonde, and I didn’t want to have to bleach it (too much work & I still want to grow out my grey roots, idk I’m weird), so I decided to just put blue over it. I figured that blonde + blue would turn out turquoise, which it did. For the bottom layers I used a mix of the green with both blues, and for the top layers I used just the blues.
Basically I love it, but it’s funny- having an unnatural hair colour has caused me to partially regress back into my former goth state. I just wanna wear black clothes and black eyeliner all the time now. I actually tried to find a vintage picture to show you, me circa 2002 with bright blue hair wearing a ludicrous black vinyl outfit, but they have all mysteriously disappeared. PROBABLY FOR THE BEST.

I likes it.
You look beautiful!
When I used to dye my hair red (bright, bright red) I found myself gravitating towards my punk-goth makeup and style. Oh, high shool.. 😉 Somehow those pictures have ‘disappeared’ as well..
luckily I’m old so my embarrassing high school years predate digital cameras. PHEW.
It looks great!! I’ve been wanting to dye my hair again forever. I used to hold jobs where they told me I couldn’t. Starting a new job soon… maybe they’ll let me go purple :3
Love it. Love.
love it! we should totally go to sanctuary now
You get out your dreadfalls and it’s a date.
Dang – finally trashed them last year. But I have wigs!
I AM DISAPPOINT. I guess wigs are acceptable. I guess.
I think I have some blue hair/black vinyl pants pics of you. Or Celia does. Ahhh, Celebrities 80’s night …
lol I think it was just a wig in those days.
