A Winter Sunburn

013a 014a 016a 018a

It’s very warm today. I don’t know why I always talk about the weather on here, I’m trying to make small talk with you I guess. When I say warm, I mean it reached the 50’s today and that’s pretty crazy considering two states over is a blizzard. I thought since I had time today I would post. I’ve been very busy and have some exciting stuff going on in my life right now! This outfit was inspired by Kenley Collins. I love her clothes! Check her out! I hope you are all having a great week, and happy Friday!

Purple Hair

Cut my hair and dyed the ends purple! It was so long but I love it now. I’ll have to have a photo shoot soon!

Wish List

These are some things I’ve been wanting lately. I’m changing my hair to purple this week. I’m so excited! I will post pictures. I’ve been really into leather skirts lately, I think they will look cool in the summer, along with high top converse. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up! Have a good week everyone!

DIY: Dip Dye Hair

I’m so excited right now because I just dyed my hair! I have never done it before, and I dyed the ends “dip-dye” style at home. I wanted to share a little how-to so if any of you want to try, you can!

First, here’s what you need:

Towel and tshirt you don’t care about
Creme developer (I used Salon Care 20 volume)
Powder lightener (I used PrismLites)
Color dye of your choice
An applicator or comb
Plastic bowl
Gloves

Step 1: section your hair to the length you want it

Step 2: mix 1 packet of the powder with 2 ounces of the creme developer, mix until it’s like icing. Wear your gloves!

Step 3: spread the mixture through hair, making sure to cover inside and out, then wrap up in grocery bag and set it for 40 minutes (or as long as the directions on your bleach say)

Step 4: rinse out the bleach with warm water, and condition. Let it completely dry. It should look like this, or lighter.

Step 5: put color in, covering the blonde area. It’s ok if you get some on the not bleached parts, it won’t hold the color if your hair is dark. Wrap up in bag and wait as long as your dye directions say.

Step 6: rinse out and put more conditioner in. This is how mine turned out!

Also, if you can, get someone to help you. It’s a lot easier if you do. Thanks to my lovely father who helped me!
