I finished those damned socks. Turns out, I can’t be bothered to take a picture of them. They are, you know. Socks. Imagine some socks. Boom: you’re done.

In other news, I dyed my hair a fun color! Well, the stylist did. He did an AMAZING job.

purple hair

When I talked to my friend this morning I told her that I was just going to have him do the regular color, but that I wanted to discuss my options with him regarding possibly going lighter. But the more I thought about my options, hair-color-wise, the more I thought, “YOU KNOW WHAT…”

Also, Rachael dyed her hair gorgeously purple and MOMMY ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DOING IT I WANT IT TOOOOOOOOO.

  • That hair is brilliant! It makes me think of a raven’s wing, black but with all kinds of rainbow iridescences. Gorgeous. Well done, you (and your stylist)!

    My youngest daughter, while in school, used to dye her hair fun colors. Pink, blue, green. Such is her magic that she made them seem like natural hair colors.

  • Ginny

    It is beautiful! I love the blended colors. Your stylist probably had the most fun and it shows.

    My husband helped me dye my hair cobalt blue for Halloween (I was Merryweather from Cinderella) and I actually loved the way it looked on my hair.I have a lot of dark grey over medium brown.

    I’m thinking about another color for summer. Something in a mango shade I think.

    LOVE the purple/midnight blue combo!

    I just bleached out streaks and put in pink last weekend! It’s hair. It grows back. Gotta have fun with it every now and again :-)

  • Jennifer

    That’s some seriously awesome hair right there! I thought of starling feathers, myself. Now, make matching socks.

  • Fiona

    Yes Jennifer, that’s it!! Starling feathers! I knew it reminded me of a bird of some kind :-)

  • Brandi

    I love your hair! Fun, funky hair colors are great. I used to dye my hair with Manic Panic’s marvelous range of colors in college then stopped for a long time. Last summer, I got a bug in me to do it again, and my lovely husband did this dye job.

  • When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails using the identical comment. Is there any way you possibly can get rid of me from that service? Thanks!
