Blue Hair

Hey! It's been a while.
Things have been going okay here. We've been dealing a lot with the allergies for the season, trying out different allergy medication, etc. I swear one day I'm just going to sneeze and my head it just going to explode. At least that's what it feels like. Heh. At least it's warmer than 60 degrees. I'm so ready for swimming, tanning and watermelon. YUM!

So in case anyone else was wondering, yes, I did dye my hair blue. I've always been a colorful person and since a teen, have experimented in dying hair. I've always wanted to do something bright and colorful, but wasn't sure what color. Blue it is! Not completely blue though... Being I am a teaching assistant for archery classes at BYU-Idaho and will be taking classes come September, I couldn't make it too bold due to school standards. (yeah, I know...)
So I just did streaks that were neatly hidden on the underside of my hair. I scared the hubby and sent him a picture of the blonde with a text saying "what if I went blonde instead?". Haha. With my skin tone, I don't think it would look right. It was a good laugh though. 
After sitting under the dryer for what seemed like forever, we finally washed out my hair again, making it look like we killed some smurfs. My salon girl had a blue tint on her hands by the time we were done. I couldn't even see the blue with my hair all wet, but when we dried and curled it, it was VERY noticeable.
Like I said before, it's all underneath my hair, so you can't really tell in the second picture, but it is there! It makes me happy every time I see it when I put my hair up in cute buns and curls. I think my favorite is to curl it though I need a thicker curling iron than just my 1/2 inch. Maybe it's a 1/4 inch thick? Either way, it's little.

I've noticed that when I wear certain colors, the shade changes slightly. For example, green makes it look more like an aqua than the bright blue it is. I try to wear blue and make it stand out more when I'm not at school to make it stand out more. Latest fashion? Bandanas. Especially as seen here in this picture where the knot is on top of my head and my hair is in a pony. I also like to drape the bandana on my head and tie my hair in pigtail braids which include the bandana, securing it into my hairstyle. It is fun. 
So even 2? 3? weeks later, my blue hair makes me almost as happy as this man. It's been a whole year! Can you believe that? I can't. It makes me so proud to be married to him. The best for me. I've already decided that if we end up moving next month, I'll most definitely make my blue streaks a little more bolder for the fall. Have you ever died your hair fun colors? or wanted to?
