Pink hair roots!

Here's a quickie for you tonight! I wasn't planning on posting about this, but I was looking through some photos from a month or so ago and thought the hairstyle I wore was too fun not to share.

I had a dinner event to go to and was having an "urgh, my hair sucks, and I hate it and everything it stands for" moment, but didn't want to wear a boring plain bun. Instead I took my boring plain bun, and dusted down it a smattering of pink. Think of it as a reverse dip-dye!





Total shocker that I used one of my beloved Kevin Murphy Color Bugs, right? These little tubs of joy have really given me a lot of use, and I haven't even hit pan yet.

By the way, these photos weren't meant to be so melancholy! Totally taken to check how it looked on rather than to document, but then again, here we are. If I try the style again, I'll most definitely take a few more better-lit, less sooky looking shots.

Bonus photo time! I just found another pic, apparently taken after returning late at night to my boudoir, and minus eye make-up. Yep, someone drank all the red wine at her table...

I am totes seducing you here, look at all the seduction

    1. Thanks! Gawd, I love the idea of a Twiggy cut, but my hair is too boofy for it. Faux-pixe it is then!

  3. I love all the ways you use your colourbugs and I'm endlessly jealous because my hair is waay too dark to show up the colour like that!

    1. At this point, I'm not sure if I'm using the Colorbugs or if they're using me...

    1. It's a curse, and a blessing - swimming in a pool leaves my hair green!

  7. Hola hair twin! I concur - you're def rocking the colour bug! I'm also tempted to try this stuff out for myself for a Halloween party - how hard is it to wash out of your hair though? Mine's pretty light like yours - and pretty dry and porous too - I'm just worried about it not washing out in time for work! Wouldn't be a maaaaassive deal as it's not super corporate here - but not ideal to be a-rocking pink hair either. My luck would have me booked in for a meeting with the GM the Monday after Halloween partay!

    1. It washed out pretty easily for me - actually was a lot easier to get out of the roots than my dry ends. Just one wash with a clarifying shampoo.
