Last year at Ally pally, I was chatting to Lucy Neatby and she grinned at my blonde white hair, and said, 'thats just a blank canvas waiting to happen' to which I laughed and felt mildly anxious.
I went to get my hair but last week, I had all of it cut off, it was driving me nuts, and getting way too scruffy, as I had let alot of dark roots coming though, I ended up with badger hair after it was cut, and I decided I needed to switch colours and go for a totally new look, so Tristan, my cutsie hairdresser told me to put a red colour on the blonde, and then go over it in a dark brown colour, otherwise the brown will go badly on my bleached bits, and it would look crap. So carmen decided to dye my hair, we got the red on the bleached bits, and after about 5 minutes, she started looking nervous, "what's up" I said.
"Um nothing"......and then she shouted, "jeni, its purple" and she wasn't joking, it came out the same plum as I use in alot of my sock yarns, and having over dyed my yarns to achieve different effects I wasn't panicking yet, so anyway we popped the brown on top, and it looks great, but there is definately a hint of purple in there big time. Its a major contrast though, and when I went shopping for some new clothes at first I hated it, because it looked crap with everything, then I relaxed and pretended I was choosing colours for yarn, and it was then that I fell in love with my hair, lots of reds and greens, really complimented my eyes and skin tones, you'll see it at allypally anyway.
