New and Different

October 17, 2016

Growing up I colored my hair almost every natural shade there was.I had always wanted to go purple or blue, but school regulations and job prospects meant that I was unable to. It’s been about six years since I last did any type of color.  This changed this weekend. On a slight whim and thanks to the encouragement of the Giant I finally made the plunge into purple hair.


The pre-dye photo. My hair has darkened over the years and when we went about the dyeing I had to lighten it.


It was weird seeing it so blonde again, the color was hard to capture, but suffice it to say it looked very early 2000’s.

The entire process was an interesting experiment in spousal trust. The Giant was willing to help with the entire thing, but was far more nervous than I. I kept reassuring him that worst case scenario I cut it off and regrow (over dyeing was the next step if it didn’t work out.)

Despite a few hiccups the process went really well. The results are a bit lighter than I was going for, but I absolutely love it.


It only took 29 years to get it.

  1. I had purple once and my kids nearly disowned me. I love it.

  2. I’m so glad you took the plunge; it looks great! Chris helps with my hair, and he still gets nervous every time. I think it’s natural to worry about doing something rather extreme to another person that might not work out. Heh.

  3. Purple hair is the best! Love it!

    I LOVE it! I think it’s so fun.

  5. I don’t often say this about purple hair, but it suits you! Nice new look!

  6. I also waited a long time before dying my hair a non-standard color. Lucky for me, I have a friend who hasn’t seen her natural color in years that helps me. Your hair looks great! Here’s to exploring all the purples!
