'Til we meet again, green!

Thursday, November 07, 2013

It's been a long time coming but I finally left my green hair behind. I never intended to spend six months with green hair, I just ended up really liking it. But like with any color though, I got bored. I got tired of maintaining it. It was past time to switch things up! I didn't know if it'd be possible to switch colors so easily since my hair was still a pretty dark green before I bleached it but it lightened up quickly and the residual color made for pretty streaks of dark red in the end.
 
I used a mix of Punky Colours in Fire, Manic Panic Electric Lava, and Manic Panic Wildfire. It didn't turn out exactly as planned since Wildfire isn't as deep of a red as I had hoped but I'm still very happy with the finished product. I'm so curious to see how this fades because of the orange undertones. I'm hoping for a pretty orange!

  1. Don't get me wrong, the green was very cool but this looks stunning! (Although the purple-pink mix might still be my fav though).
    I'm always impressed when you color your hair, I'm too much of a scaredy cat to try it out myself. :)

    I know what you mean about getting bored of hair color... I recently made the switch to turqoise (which turned green) after having red hair for around 5 years in varying shades. So glad I did it! I bet you are too!
