OOTD: Newly Dyed Hair


It has been 2 months since I last dyed my hair. Let's just say I was running off of fumes and in desperate need of a little self-care and hair pampering. I know you think my hair was pink before. I might agree, accept I know in my hearts of hearts that it was purple. It WAS purple anyway, until it faded. So the purple dye I used here is the exact same dye I used two months ago! Now that I am done being an ornery bitch about my hair color, here are the outfits photos.


top : thrifted
cardigan : thrifted
leggings : faded glory
flats : fashion bug
headscarf : thrifted
glasses : coastal
peter pan collar : femme club


Speaking of colors, somebody somewhere asked me what lip color this is. This is Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick Enchantress 365 and the red I use is Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick Hot 305. I am not lying when I say that I started to buy 2 tubes every time I am at the store so that I have a hefty backstock. I am obsessed. They are the perfect lip colors. I don't use lip liner and can still paint on a full lip, outside my natural lip line.



Give me a kiss you beautiful baby!


I am really happy with how the purple came out. I was going to strip my hair first to start with a blank slate but then I changed my mind because I was using the same color anyway. I almost was going to do blue or green! I had a little leftover highlighter pink after bleaching, you can see my progress here. And yes, I do bleach my whole head of hair because it was so outgrown and had been long enough to safely re-bleach without damaging my hair. This time I did mix the purple dye with conditioner but it was still effective at being an intense color. I also left the purple in for at least 6 hours. It felt nice and soft even after all the things I do to it!


I love it! Would you dye your hair a bright color?

You look great! I wish I had the guts to do my hair like that.

I had bright hair when I was in Grade 12, way back when. I went through my short, spiky, colourful hair phase and then got sick of the upkeep. I definitely think it's an awesome look, but I hated the fade out. I commend you for keeping yours looking so vibrant. It's not an easy task!


I love the new colour, by the way. You look stunning.

I love the colour! I so would go for a bold colour, but I think I'd want to cut it shorter first. I'm growing out the short cut I had last summer, but who knows... it's just hair!

Qaroline said...

wow!
I wore quite vibrant colours for a long time, pink and purple among them! I always wanted to do blue but ended up compromising with blue-black!
Way to go!
Love, Qaroline

My hair has chunks of magenta in it. I wish that I had the courage to
dye my whole head pink but I'm too lazy to maintain it properly.

Yours looks lovely. I've had purple in my hair before but it was bluer...I love the shade of yours.

I had a section of pink in the back of my hair, but my husband got laid off and I couldn't afford to keep it up. I bought some hair color stripping stuff and had my mom strip the pink, so then it was just a nice blonde. I'm thinking about just redoing that some day. Right now, I really look like a scrub.

I LOVE that color. I have always wanted to try something crazy, but my skintone is too olive to really go well with any of the colors I want. Maybe one day!

Natalie Mulford said...

Love the colour of your hair, and yes, yes I would dye my hair a bright colour! :P I tried going back to brown last year and it lasted a fortnight, I just couldn't keep it, coloured hair is ME.

Love the purple! My hair has been bright blue, dark blue, pink and is currently magenta. The shades of red are all I can get away with at my uber conservative hospice office job. If I had a more relaxed work environment I would totally play with the color again.

Nice! Love the color! Sadly I just dyed my hair from a pretty turquoise blue back to my normal dark brown hair color.

I love your purple hair, purple is my favorite color! I would like to do some bright colors like that, but the boldest i've done lately is red. I have had pink streaks before, but that was when I was in high school.

Cosmia said...

Love your hairstyle (and colour!) I had blue hair when I was a teenager but I don't think I could get away with it in my office :(

Love this hair! Such a cute outfit, too! Ugh. I've had hair every color of the rainbow, from hard-core platinum blonde to black to purple with red streaks. Not anymore though. Now it's just whatever pimped-up version of brown I'm in the mood for.
