I'm itching to go WHITE BLONDE!

Of course now that I have a good 2 inches of my natural colour growing in and I have a fairly good match so that you can't actually see it growing out, I need to dye my hair again....

Note the sarcasm.

I'm not sure what it is about me but I ever since the first time I dyed me hair (coppery red when I was 13), I am never satisfied with my natural colour.

As I've stated in other posts, when I vocalize this dissatisfaction people often look at me in disbelief and tell me I should consider myself lucky that I have naturally blonde hair as an adult.


Well... I find my dirty blonde hair colour kind of boring on me!

I have gone practically every other colour in the rainbow expect for...


I don't usually go lighter.... in fact I never go lighter.
I love having dark hair... red, dark pink, black, brown...etc.

But I am loving this new trend in hair that is so blonde that it is almost white.
I'm reeeeeeally liking the idea of adding a pop of colour to it.

I was thinking of either turquoise or pale purple.

Either way I think I'm going to take the plunge and go lighter.
Hopefully it doesn't look trashy when my roots start growing in.... 
I don't have dark hair... 
so I should be slightly in the clear...

I love the fact that these blondes are not at all brassy.  I think that is what always puts my off going lighter... when you use bleach you end up with yellowish hair...


I am going to the lovely hair dresser who stripped my dark and bright red hair back to a dark blonde without killing my hair.  Provided she thinks its possible to go this light without it going yellow (and it doesn't hurt my "wallet" too much) I am making this change after my next paycheque.

Pictures to come...



  1. OOoooh, exciting! I think the pop of colour would be awesome! I don't have the guts to do anything too drastic with my hair (I dye it monthly, but stick within a fairly tight colour range).
    However I'm planning on adding feather hair extensions with my next paycheque...! I've seen 'em on a few people and think they're pretty rad, although I'm not 100% sure how they'll look with my jaw-length bob. I'll keep you posted.

  2. I LOVElovelove silvery white and pale purple hair! So naturally, those are/were my hair colors ;] Pale, silvery purple and pink are my current obsessions.

    When you go white blonde, it's a good idea to get KC's ColorMask! It's a lifesaver. It dyes/tints and nourishes of your hair.

  3. Kerri: I think that the feather hair extension will look bad-ass with you jaw-lenth bob!

    Rosi: Thanks for the tip! How does it dye/tint you hair? Does it keep it from going brassy?

  4. I have an appointment for this Thursday :) Pics to follow!
