Pretty in Purple! - The Dainty Squid

Pretty in Purple!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Last week I dyed my hair! I'd had blue hair for six months!! That is probably the longest it's ever been a color since I started dying it fun colors three years ago and it was time for a change. Blue will always be my go-to color and my absolute favorite but purple is a very close second!

I'm in looooove. I missed purple more than I thought! I left some blue along the underneath of the backside so that it peeks out. You can't really see it very well in these photos but, trust me, it's precious!

In case your curious, this is just a mix of three different shades of purple (Virgin Rose, Wildflower, and Pimpin Purple) over top of my faded blue hair. I didn't bleach it at all (not even my roots which is why they're a slightly different color) I love it because it in certain lights it has the prettiest blue tint.

  18. I had a part of my hair dyed purple before and really loved it, too!
    But now my whole head is orange with some yellow and white parts and I totally fell in love with it!!
    I love your hair colour and you're such an inspiration to me (in many ways, not only the hair)! Besides, I adore cats, too^^

  19. I LOVE that color. My job won't let me dye my hair like that, but perhaps I'll put in some bright purple highlights during vacation time. It's gorgeous.

  25. Have you try the Ultra violet from Manic Panic?? I love using it even if I'm mixing because that color have a beautiful shade when it fades out. :) I love your purple!

    ReplyDelete
  26. IT LOOKS SOOOO GOOD! (I had to shout!)
    I love the little peek of blue underneath.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow! It looks soooo amazing! Purple suits you really well, I like it! I'm very jealous - because of your haircut (my hair is far too curly for a fringe) and because you wear these fun colours with so much class. (I'm yet too scared to dye my hair in fun colours.)

  34. purple is one of my favorite colours! I have been...cruised/blessed with natural bright red hair, and thus must live a life without purple hair... or any other colour. Red is too hard to dye and I cant afford the fancy shmancy salon who will charge me a months salary to strip the colour, bleach it and dye it. ho hum. the life of a red head.

  35. The old blue and the new purple make a perfect match!! You look nice and funny, as usual :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's awesome. :] I went purple last week, too. My Raw Ruby Red was just fading WAY TOO FAST, even with every other day washing in cold water. So I slapped a mixture of SPLAT! Pink Fetish and Kelly's Blue on top of it. :]

  37. I LOVE it and I love the blue in the bottom!! You look amazing!

  46. You have the best hair... not to mention your bangs are awesome! I wish I could have short bangs hahaha. I kind of want to dye my hair another color besides pink... I'll probably add some green once I get my hands on some bleach!

  56. That is the most beautiful shade of purple. too bad my work would kill me if i did that

    ReplyDelete
  57. sooo cute! I have finally decided to stop dying my hair fun bright colors. Although pink and blue were my favorite hair colors.....I am now into shaving my hair sssuuuper short and having it my natural brown hue. I do aqua zumba and the chlorine would have killed it. Not to mention with all the exercise (50 lbs to go...25 lost) it would bleed so bad...so I decided to live more simply. But....I loooove you in purple! Hearts, Janna Lynn

  63. I'm as excited as Angie above, it really is an awesome colour!! And the splash of blue at the bottom is super cute. Now, this is like a 'uh who asked?' story buuut, I'm getting braces in a couple of weeks eek! I had the full set 5 years ago and didn't wear a plate afterwards so the front ones have moved and there are gaps (can't have those!). For the sake of perfection and justifying those expensive braces in the first place, I've decided to get the 8 brackets I need to set them straight again. Got any good smoothie recipes for when they're too tender to chew?? :D

  64. Awesome color!!!! I used to have dark-purple before.. but now i'm loving my dark-chestnut natural hair! You look great - keep shining!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh my goodness, I love it! I am so jealous that you pull off that gorgeous color of purple so well. I think this one is definitely a keeper for awhile J

    ReplyDelete
  66. Pretty! I've been pastel purple for a while now but I am going to go back to a light petrol blue (:

    ReplyDelete
  67. That looks great! I'm new to your blog and I think you're super fabulous. (As, obviously, do a lot of other people, haha.)

    I've never used any of the Special Effects purple dyes, but I've used Blue Haired Freak and Electric Blue, I think. I'm so devoted to Atomic Pink, but my current job won't let me have pink hair. I'm curious to see how your purple lasts, I was always led to believe that purple faded the most quickly of all bright dyes, which made me leery of trying it.

  68. Absolutely love your hair!

    Much love,

  69. I adore your hair!!! You seem to look so natural with non-typical hair color. I'm sure if I were to dye my hair I'd look terribly awkward. And don't get me started on the curls!
