do you recall this photo, from valentine’s day?
well, i decided i wanted a bit of a change up. i had been enamoured of a certain silly style since seeing it done really well on a friend. i’ve basically been wanting to do this thing for years, and should have done it long ago.
i finally got all the proper supplies together, and did everything in two sessions.
first, i had to correct the several months of root growth, of course.
Then, after a couple of days’ wait, i settled in for something i’d never done before, really: painting my hair, section by section. i ended up looking pretty amusing:
you can see i managed to get much of it on my face. and it’s strong stuff; my face still has pink patches about it. sorry about the bad lighting…my studio is dark at the best of times, and these photos were taken at night.
and, here’s a picdump of the final results:
as you can see, project skittles was quite a success.
i think though, that if i ever try this again, the red will go in the back rather than the front, and i will pick up a much deeper blue (because honestly, it ended up looking like another shade of green). and, it took *forever* to do on my own. i’m worried that the back probably has rough patches of blonde just hanging out. nothing a good hair clip can’t hide!
oh, and how to complete a project like this?
oh yes, we do nothing half-assed in this house.
