Rainbow hair.

It has become a bit of a ‘thing’ of mine to wear bright colours and have bright hair. I was 15 when I first started bleaching it. 19 when it went red, then orange…red, orange, brown, purple, blonde, (rubbish) blue, blonde…or something like that. Finally, in April of last year I decided to go for it and go Rainbow. I’d seen photo’s of people with it and was desperate. To be honest, it’s not necessarily rainbow, as such, but 5 colours is the most I’ve gone, so far. I may do proper rainbow some time this year.

I am doing this post because I dyed in multicoloured for the 4th time – waiting for it to fade and generally being lazy makes it take a while. I like to swap the colours around each time.

This is how it looks this time around:

Hair Front

Hair Right

Hair Left

I only went with 4 colours, so one less than there has been, because I had most of these colours; I was going to do a red fringe, but I really love the fluorescent yellow, so I went with it.

The is the first time I’ve done everything by myself. I am usually OK bleaching my hair myself, but the colours I hadn’t dared to do before. I think they turned out really well and quite neat. Having two mirrors was confusing, though. Seeing everything backwards – I got a little bit of blue on the tops of some yellow.


So, yep. If you could dye your hair any colour, what would it be?

See you tomorrow.

    Wow! I love that purple at the back – then again I love the blue too! I’m going grey prematurely and have decided to embrace the grey (which might kill me in the process!) then when I have more grey than red I’m going to go some crazy colour.

    At the moment when my hair is tied back I have a streak which is getting whiter/greyer.

      I think my hair has a slight grey tinge to it, but not in a grey way – just that my natural hair is a very dull colour. Sounds like a brilliant idea, though! 😀
