I blame it on my very early obsession with My Little Pony, Lady Lovely Locks and Moondreamers!
Plus when your style icons are Gwen Stefani and Vivienne Westwood what you gonna do?!
Its an addiction that started when I was 11, I went to a Backstreet Boys concert in Sheffield and I REALLY wanted pink hair. Sadly I wasn't allowed, so I got desperate and decided that colouring my hair using a pink highlighter pen a few strands at a time was a great idea! Good grief! Suffice to say, I thought I looked great (and I swear Brian looked RIGHT AT ME!) but I'm glad there is no photo evidence to squash my first colour experience memory.
I experiment with different colours and shades but I do try to always go back to blonde (not natural unfortunately) for a while to give my hair a "break" HA! I don't bleach it myself, I go to a salon for that - trust me I've got only bad experiences of bleaching my own hair, I've learnt the hard way its worth paying a professional to do it.
My preferred brands are:
- Directions - smells great, covers well, washes out evenly and is not tested on animals.
- Bleach London - Amazing selection of colours, you get a lot of your money and washes out in unexpected ways!
Its washed out Bruised Violet by Bleach London! It was quite a dark purple when I first put it on but now its a fab multi colured blue, purple and pink! Very mermaidy! I really like it and have had some nice compliments.
Who knows where the hair colour rainbow will take me next? Summers coming up so maybe a vibrant orange, florescent yellow or maybe I'll get my highlighter pens out again!
