View Full Version : Like my new look?

April 16th, 2010, 12:01 PM
So I've decided to use my left over pink dye from days of having vivid pink hair to create a few hopefully pink streaks in my hennaed hair. Not sure how they'll turn out, I'm using crazy colour cyclamen. Mixed with henna turned out a little bit brown ish, so hopefully it'll work better layered over henna. Here's hoping.
And here's how I look in the mean time with little bundles of clingfilmed pink dye! Clickable pics.

Excuse my mucky face, I'd working on my motorbike all morning.

I'm really liking the cling film look.. ;) It's snazzy! :D

In all seriousness though, I hope it turns out, too! :)

April 16th, 2010, 12:16 PM
Good luck with that!

April 16th, 2010, 12:19 PM
I'll let you know how it looks once it's dried. I'm back to the good old days of turning the shower bright pink! Hehe. I think it's worked, it looks dark pink whilst wet (not brown woo), and the non dyed bits seem to be a brighter than before and more red. Ooo, this is exciting.

I hope it works out for you - be sure to post after pictures!

(Also, you are too cute! :D )

April 16th, 2010, 12:28 PM
exciting :)! Hope it goes well too and looking forward to hearing about/seeing the results :D

Why can't I see pictures? I see the signature pics of everyone, but the op's pics aren't there for me?

They're in my album so should be visible to anyone with over 25 posts. Perhaps try clicking on my profile to look at my albums. They're in the "messing about" album.

Hope your hair turns out :)

April 16th, 2010, 01:24 PM
It looks pretty pink right now! Post pics when its done :)

Bright colors are so much fun!

I've been seriously thinking about buying some temporary dye this weekend too, like MP, SFX, Punky, etc. I might like something in bright red to give my henna more oomph, or maybe a few streaks of a nice purple or pink... The possibilities are endless!

I just can't get too wild with it, or they'll have a fit at work. That's okay... I can be sneaky! :eyebrows:

Looking forward to more pics of your beautiful streaks! :thumbsup:

April 16th, 2010, 03:28 PM
The cling wrap look is so in right now :D

April 16th, 2010, 04:12 PM
I like the way you think! Some pink streaks are always nice...

To me, the cling film looks like a bunch of flowers pinned behind your ear! Cool and shiny. I like shinies...

I thought the cling film WAS flowers until I read the post.:D Can't wait to see the streaks!

I'm looking forward to seeing the results. :cheese:

I looked at the pictures before I read what you said above them, I was like "huhh?! is she wearing foil in her hair as decoration?" hahahaha =] Can't wait to see the pink streaks!!

April 18th, 2010, 12:05 PM

Very pretty. I like the pink glimmering in with your henna red. :)

April 18th, 2010, 02:49 PM
That's lovely. I have wanted pink hair all of my life, but I don't dare to bleach black hair it that much.

The colors are really pretty, I love it!

April 18th, 2010, 02:51 PM
I love it to bits!
Gimme some of that pink! :p I need something spunky cool in my hair.

April 18th, 2010, 03:35 PM

I actually thought they were clips or something at first too!

Sounds like a fun idea :) and turned out really nice too!

April 18th, 2010, 04:38 PM
It turned out so pretty :) Subtlety gorgeous.

April 18th, 2010, 05:58 PM
Thank you :D
I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I was a bit disappointed with how coppery the henna was, not red enough. Now I seem to have struck a wonderful balance between copper tones, red tones which I was hoping to get from henna, and a darker version of my old pink back, which even looks purple in places. It's so pretty when it catches the light. I'm so glad to be in love with my colour again. :cheese:

April 18th, 2010, 07:39 PM
Your hair looks so pretty! Glad you love your hair again

April 18th, 2010, 07:53 PM
I love it! It has a nice irridescent quality, from the pink to the henna. It looks like it would be really subtle and shimmery in the sunshine. I'd be tempted to purple up some of it, too! LOL!

April 18th, 2010, 08:01 PM
I love it! so pretty and glimmery in the sun.

April 18th, 2010, 09:32 PM
Gorgeous! It is really tempting me to use the Manic Panic I have in storage.

April 18th, 2010, 09:35 PM
Very pretty - love it :D

April 18th, 2010, 11:49 PM
So lovely! It looks really neat with the henna, too! I was just thinking this weekend about fun colors.... thanks for the inspiration!

April 19th, 2010, 04:09 AM
I really like the result!

April 19th, 2010, 04:31 AM
The results are awesome :)

April 19th, 2010, 09:30 AM
Very pretty!! How long does the color last usually?
