Today, was the day I was going to dye my hair. I was about to start when I spoke to a friend and volunteered to do it for me! Hurray! I was more than a little worried how I would manage to do it myself. And so I should have been. J is a former hairdresser and she had to bleach my hair twice.
I started with brown hair: After the first bleach I ended up with rather orange / yellow hair:
Another dye job and some toner and I had this:
Now it’s dry it is like this:
Not quite white blonde but pretty clos and a huge change which is quite freaky when I look in a mirror. It took 2.5 hours to get to this. I’m so glad that J
helped did it for me.
Tomorrow I go back and get the colours put in. Probably only as streaks rather than blocks of colour but we shall see. Mr E. will want me to get the colours of the football team he supports done but that is very unlikely to happen. After all what football team have bleu, red and Pink? If we mix the the colours we can have purple too. So hopefully tomorrow it will be done and then it’s multi-coloured hair until the big shave around 11 March 2011.

Oh Langsdown, if I can do it, you can go blonde too!
