So I started off with a couple foils. I bleached some sections but I did a really craptastic job, so towards the scalp it's super blonde and towards the end it's still kinda dark, but I honestly didn't care lol.
Before, with blonde highlights:
So I left the foils on for like 20 minutes or however long it took for my hair to lighten sufficiently. Then I washed it out and used a blow dryer to dry it faster so I could put the purple in. That's why my hair looks ultra damaged and awesome.
The bf actually liked it blonde... he suddenly likes blondes... but I don't really care for it, especially when I did a crap job! If they were professionally done I might like it, but my colorful personality calls for COLOR in my hair, not just boring highlights...
Aaaaand I only did the front section of my hair, so this picture looks ultra crappy. But I wasn't about to try to get foils on the hair in the back of my head and purple was going over it anyway so now I don't think you can tell a difference.
After, with purple highlights:
OHHHHHHHHHHHH YEAH. Wtf is my arm doing?
So I used Manic Panic Ultra Violet. Last time I used Purple Haze, and I like both, but I think I like Purple Haze better. Purple Haze definitely looked more purple and when it faded it turned a nice purpleish pink color. Obviously I don't know how Ultra Violet will fade but hopefully it's nice. The bf said this color kinda looks grey?? I don't know about that but in some lights it looks blue and in others it's purple. But that matches its name: violet.
I left it on for like 12 hours. No joke. I wanted this shiznit to last! I washed it out with cold water and only conditioned it. Looks awesome! It really looks a hell of a lot better in person. I love it! Everyone else loves it too, and I always laugh when they ask where I got it done because I did such a shitty job (pardon my French) but oh well, job well done me?
Next time I'm thinking green. Not grass green but like a rich emerald green. Eeeee that would look so pretty with my eye color I think! I don't think I've done green before... I've done my whole head pink (my profile picture) and bright fire engine red, and obviously purple, but I need green in my life maybe!
Anyone else a fan of crazy hair colors?! So much fun, if you ever get the chance, try coloring your hair something crazy just for a bit, just be prepared for a lot of attention and compliments!
