hey, i dye my hair pretty often. most recently i did a manic panic red color under my blond hair. it stayed for like a week before it turned pink and i've been doing touch ups but honestly, it's getting annoying. i want red hair, i've had pink plenty of times before. so...

what do you think of extensions? good idea/bad idea? damaging to your hair? would colored extensions be cheaper? easy to wash/maintain? help!

Question [05 Feb 2008|09:14pm]

I figured this was the best place to ask... I've never dyed my hair before so I have no idea what kinds of dyes to use or even what color would look right on me. I kind of want either black, this brown/orange color or a pinkish/reddish color like this. If I get black I'd like to have other color in it as well, probably chunked (not sure what the actual term is for it, but chunks of color in different places like this, this, this and this). I'll probably be getting it done professionally since I'm not comfortable doing it myself. There's a place in Cleveland, Ohio I was thinking about but I can't remember the name (Meow Suicide mentioned in her SG blog that she got her hair done there).

this is what my hair looks like )

I apologize if that's a lot or hard to understand, but since this will be my first time dying my hair I'd like for it to turn out well.

I work in a bank and I recently dyed my hair. My blonde highlights turned red and have faded to a light pink. I think it looks really pretty but my manager has asked me to color over it. Does he have the right to ask me that? And if so, can I get fired or written up for not doing what he says?

dramatically lightening dark-dyed hair [30 Jan 2008|10:07am]

i've decided to get the ball rolling here! unfortunately i lost a lot of my pictures, so i can't post any right now, but i intend to make a hair timeline and i encourage you all to do so! give the other members some ideas for themselves, and get yourself some tips for your next hairstyle.

here is my question--
i dyed my hair dark, dark brown and a fire engine red strip, but the dark brown has now mostly faded to a lighter shade of brown. i want to get rid of it totally and go light blonde. when doing this, i usually use colorfix (to remove the permanent hair color), bleach, and dye blonde. i usually have to repeat the extra damaging steps more than once (bleaching and/or colorfix) to get the lightening results i really want. colorfix is great, but it smells like shit and it fries my hair.

i expect my hair to get really owned, so i'll be getting a significantly shorter haircut to chop off all the hay. i was thinking holly's hairstyle from make me a supermodel (before they gave her the pixie)

i was just wondering how you lighten or remove dark hair dye from your hair? what kind of bleach do you use?
