I dye my hair quite a lot. I was a redhead (bright, fake red, you know the colour) in April (early followers may remember this,) then I was ginger/bright orange (a bleaching session went oh so wrong,) and now I am blonde. Only, not really blonde, but more gingery/strawberry blonde then the blonde I envisioned when I was slathering hair dye on my poor, battered hair. You see, I used to be blonde, about two/three years ago. Very light blonde, and I loved it. For a while. And then I changed my mind and dyed my hair a lovely dark brown the day before my 16th birthday...and then bright red a month after my 17th birthday. A warning to wannabee redheads - it is impossible to remove red hair dye from hair without bleaching or dying it black. I tried three dark blonde dyes, but the red hair remained steadfast, so I bleached it. Twice. And then dyed it three more times over the space of three months to get the colour I am now. How I still have hair I will never know. Ironic really, as I find red hair dye is the quickest fading hair colour I've tried, but when you try and erase it? Impossible. I dyed it purple, it faded back to red within a fortnight. Mad. To those that have had bright red hair and got rid of it, what colour did you go, and how much difficulty did you have getting rid of it?
I am now lusting after dark brown hair. As a natural brunette, I'm very aware that brown hair is much, much easier for me to upkeep, I don't have to worry about doing my roots on such a tight schedule, it will be in much better condition and I know it suits me. (I don't, however, know what make-up suits dark brown hair...but I'm leaving that for a post all of it's own...I know I say that a lot, but I will! If you have any tips, let me know.) So tomorrow I am popping into my local boots and I am buying even more hair dye. I should have shares in both Boots and Clairol's Nice 'N' Easy range, the amount of hair dye I buy!
I am constantly envying celebrity's hair, and the following pictures are women whose hair I especially envy (I'm certain there are grammar mistakes here but I just can't figure them.)
Daisy Lowe, Marina Diamandis, Lily Cooper and Leighton Meester.
(The beautiful Lea Michele was also here, but that made it odd, so I removed her.)
As you can tell, these women have very dark hair, bordering on black. Oh how I wish I could have black hair. Long black hair with a block fringe, yes please. But alas, I have an abnormally small forehead (not my words) and I don't think I can pull off black hair. I had black hair once, but I was 13 and going through my Goth stage and bloody hell, it did not suit me. I wish it did, I so wish, but it doesn't. Which is a shame.So, within a week, I hope to have luscious brown hair. I can't imagine my hair will end up looking as beautiful as the above women, but I can wish, right?
Whose hair do you envy?
