• Magical Purple Hair!!

Holy craziness, Batman! I haven’t posted a blog in a week! I have, however, started at least 5 posts that I’ve been too busy to finish… this being one of them. I documented my hair transition and I wanted to share the amazing *4 hour* process with you! But, before I start on the hair… here is a quick update on my life.

In 14 Days, we’ve managed to:

  1. Helped 2 people move.
  2. Completed 2 Final Exams for Statistics (pretty sure I failed the second one… but we shall see).
  3. Broke my fitbit (Daniel may be able to fix that one)
  4. Broke my ipod (Daniel fixed it this morning!)
  5. Started our taxes (We’re calling in a professional this time, but we had so much documentation to get ready… this really is a long story for another post.)
  6. Did a mini photo shoot at Barnes and Noble for Daniel’s school project
  7. Had a sister night out
  8. Got my hair dyed purple!
  9. Took our car in to get fixed
  10. Paid off our Honeymoonaversary!!
  11. Completed all the modules in SMART success and start implementing some of the new policies and proceedures in our business!
  12. Transfered my blog hosting and site over to wordpress.org (got a professional for this too… see #10!)
  13. Starteded to plan Imagine’at’s site/design revamp

*WOOH*

Last night I went to bed at 8ish… partially depressed from my test, mostly exhausted from all this amazing productivity. Tonight, I’m having a fun trivia night out with friends. Wednesday… I get back to work. I will really need to stay focused and use the scheduling I learned from SMART Success, as this next term I will have 2 accelerated classes (instead of my usual 1)… but at the end of the term we will be rewarded with a trip to PR – so there is a lot to look forward to!

But now… for the real reason you read through the entire top half of this blog… my purple hair transition, in pictures!! (Deets for the amazing stylist who did this: Ivana at Hybrid Salon.)

We had to start by bleaching my hair. Started from the sides and worked our way to the back… this was a pretty awesomely crazy look… And this picture still really cracks me up.

Then we wait… While she was mixing up color in the back… I found ways to amuse myself… mostly taking silly pictures with my camera.

I always wondered what my hair would look like bleached (when I’m not doing it at home and turning it orange). I felt a little Marilyn-ish… but I don’t think this color looks awesome on me.

Pulled the lavender color through the ends… and waited…

 

 

 

And waited…

 

 

 

Finally…

We have this awesome lavender color with deep purple roots. Because of the way she mixed the color, it shimmers different colors in different lights… pink, silver, blue, etc. It’s really fantastic!! I am so in love with it!!

What crazy color would you dye your hair? Or have you dyed your hair a funky color? What was it? I want to see your pictures!

XOXO,

    love the purple! I wish I had the guts, I think I’d dye my hair all shades of the rainbow haha. Probably red, but I really like purple too!

      You can always give yourself a warmup… like with a burgundy color or something! :-) That’s how I started! 😉

      Thank you! Red is a pretty amazing color, if I had natural red hair I DEFINITELY wouldn’t touch it… well, maybe… I can’t promise, lol!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Purple is one of my favorite colors for hair! I cycled through a few different colors of bright streaks over a two year period, with blue being my favorite. I love the look of all-over bright colors, but only very well maintained, and I know I’m too lazy for that kind of hair maintenance, so I don’t think I’d ever do it. Now my job wouldn’t allow crazy colors so i’m back to brown (and I love my job). You asked for pictures, so here’s a blog post I did about some of my colors: http://www.therandomwritings.com/2013/05/wbbe-crazy-hair.html

      Thank you for the pictures!! I love what you did, and I agree, the blue is amazing!! I love how you did it in a way that’s pretty low maintenance, but still really fun! :-) Thank you!

      Thank you! I’m hoping things will slow down a bit now that finals are over… AND we have a trip to PR coming up soon, so that should bring some awesome R&R! Thank you for commenting! And you stay beautiful, too! 😀

      Thank you! and YES – OMG, it was so much work… 4 hours, in fact, but she was a trooper and we were both super excited for how it turned out!

      HAHA! My husband always just says “I have to get used to it” and then a while later he likes it. He’s gotten used to my trips to the salon – coming back looking like a different person, lol!

      Why, Thank you! I’m sure if purple wouldn’t be the color for you, there would be another awesome crazy color you could definitely pull off better than I! :-)

    Wow! That is definitely purple – and you can totally pull it off! I would look awful with hair that color, but I adore it on you! Love the loose curls, too! :) Pretty!

      Thank you!! We went through a few color matches before we decided on lavender… I think there are some other colors that would look dreadful with my skin tone! That’s why I asked my stylist, lol, I probably would have picked an outlandish color if I tried on my own! :-)
