Hair Dyed Blue
I've uploaded some select pictures I took while getting my hair dyed blue. Each picture has a description of what was going on.

For those curious you can view the final result here:

You look like you're about to go postal in those pictures.

heh, it's fine. I realize I don't exactly look happy-go-lucky in pictures.

I wish my mailman was that cute, then he could do what ever he wanted to.

I may look it but really I was just silently tolerating the wait. Toward the end I was rather amused by the changes and curious how it would really look.

Looks cute, I like it when Blue starts to fade a wee bit and gets more of that light aqua color to it.

Thanks. :-)

Forget fading, this thing is bleeding every time water just touches it. I'm tempted to rinse it until it stops bleeding but I'm concerned I'll just washing it all out then. Then I'll be highlighted blond. >_>

Yeah not good.. Thats weird that it's bleeding so much , was it just a temp color?

I think so. The guy started to talk about it but then we got busy actually coloring it and I forgot the subject. He said something about it being temporary because it wasn't mixed with something-or-another.

That's alright. I'm not perfectly satisfied with this particular style anyway. It's a good style but if I do it again I'll try to get it just blue tipped. I think that will be closer to what I have in mind for 'subtle and blended'.

I'm liking the final result.

Thanks. It's not exactly what I was hoping for but I like it (most of the time, heh).

I like it. Why are you wearing a shirt? j/k....sort of.

After wearing my motorcycle helmet it looks kind of silly by the time I get home again.

*lick* Silly isn't the word that comes to mind...

Looking sharp, once again.

I've had my hair dyed once. I would be more willing to experiment with it, but I found going through the process to be quite a hassle. And I was only getting it bleached blond, so I didn't go through the additional step of having them put a color on it.

My hair is so dark in order to truly bleach it (instead of just having it turn orange) it has to be bleached twice in a row. I've only had this done once because it has very unpleasant consequences. Therefore, if I want to color my hair I use colored gel.

I think I know what you mean by 'very unpleasant consequences'. A sizable portion of skin just below the right side of my bangs formed a bunch of raw spots that quickly scabbed over. It's taken a few days but they've healed enough to come off leaving only minor spots of discoloration.

Hopefully next time getting the desired look won't take quite so much time and multiple layers.

Handsome guy. Looks good on you. :-)

Thanks. :-)

I don't suppose you've gone back a couple more entries too, eh? :-P
