Wow, not only does the color look good, but I love how you've pictured your hair!

Sheer laziness I assure you, I get really cranky trying to photograph the back in a mirror.....this way I can (sort of) see what I'm doing, the white background sets it off and you can still tell (roughly) how long it is :)) Win win LOL

really pretty!!!

And do you like it? :)

I think it looks cool and eye-catching. I love the blue.

I don't know, it is pretty and done very well-my family thinks it's really nice, but in some way I can't put my finger on it's not me.........I'm cutting off the blue in 3 weeks anyway as I don't want to keep reapplying (and it fades like crazy!), maybe it'll grow on me :) It looks really cool in a braid though :))

It looks great.

I couldn't go blue if I wanted to because of work but I did get permission for natural colors so I keep mine red with henna. It started as dye because I figured Henna would be more work but holy moley was I wrong red dye won't stick to my hair to save it's life and henna still does but it takes more time and more applications to do so but thus is the sad story of virgin vs damaged.

Anyways my whole point was if you like it but hate the fade add another complimenting color to change it and rejuvenate it.

That's a lovely colour you picked. :)

I love it!

Very pretty

Looks great! I also like the way you photographed the length.

August 28th, 2013, 02:27 PM
That's gorgeous! Did you bleach it or anything before you added the blue?

August 28th, 2013, 04:11 PM
Yeah you have to bleach to get it to stick, I only bleached 4-6 inches and thats what'll be coming off when I cut. I'm a bit nervous about the cut.......I didn't think it was a big deal but everyone else seems to think it is!!

Intense color, very nice!

August 28th, 2013, 04:32 PM
I love the color. It looks amazing. I also agree with everyone that they way you took the pictures is creative. I understand trying to take these pictures by yourself hehe.

I'm going to photograph my hair like that from now on. It's standard but I get kinda tired of looking at back-pictures of hair, especially cuz I don't care exactly how long mine is, but care more about waviness/color, which shows up great how you did it.

August 28th, 2013, 11:18 PM
Gorgeous! And I too and going to steal your photographing strategy!

August 28th, 2013, 11:24 PM
Beautiful! I love the way you photographed it, too. With your hair arranged like that and above you it looks like you're underwater--neat effect!

August 29th, 2013, 05:41 PM
Thanks guys :) I too love how my hair looks in those pics, and trust me it sure is easier than trying to get a good back shot LOL

Looks very pretty! :)

That's a lovely shade of blue, what brand of hair dye did you use? I have used my fair share of outrageous colored dyes :cool: Also, you are a genius for photographing your hair like this. No idea why I never thought of that!

August 31st, 2013, 12:17 PM
I love your hair and your photography skills :)

Thanks guys :) I think she used a dye called Chromatic? She blended a dark blue and aqua to get the colour. It's faded a bit now and I'm thinking of putting some fudge smash box pink through at home before I get it cut in a few weeks........might as well get some milage out of it!
