I have never been shy about adding a little funkiness to my wardrobe or me [my nose is pierced and I have three tattoos]. I have a friend who has short hair and at age 60 has been bleaching and coloring it some pretty fun colors. Many years ago I purchased some clip in hair pieces in fun colors and would wear them occasionally. I went that route as I was not certain what color I wanted to go with and I could coordinate with what I was wearing.
When I am ready to do something, I am ready. A couple months ago I had it in my mind that I wanted to color some of my hair. I was obsessed with peekaboo highlights and wanted peacock blue ones. The photo below shows what I wanted to do [my hair is shorter].
So my friend who colors her hair said she wanted to do it. I originally wanted a streak in my bangs and some peekaboo highlights. Something fun and easy to maintain [could probably do it myself eventually] as far as finances are concerned. There was a drawback. The fresh color mixed with my sweat when I slept and stained my neck. After experimenting it took lemon juice to get it off. It’s vegetable dye so came out of my pillowcase no problem.
I started looking on Pinterest for ideas and came across these photos.
Who doesn’t love some Steampunk mixed with your colorful hair?
Or some long curly locks with a little peacock blue in them?
The color was awesome and I loved it! A few weeks latter this same friend went to a fund raiser and won a cut and color at a studio and gifted it to me. So of course I went for a little more color. I still had the blue neck situation for about a week so may not do color under my hair next time. Here is a glimpse of mine…
This photo below shows more of the color but it’s really blue. It was more peacock in person. This was the day I got the color.
I may just keep the top that you see in this photo. The other one of me is a more realistic color. Have you done anything crazy with your hair?
