Last summer the girls asked if i would dip dye their hair, but the left it until a week or two before going back to school to ask, so the answer was "no, maybe next year"
They held me to the "promise" and made sure that the first time we went anywhere near a shop that sold hair dye in the summer holiday, they got to pick their colours.
I insisted on semi permanent, and wasn't keen to apply bleach to their hair, in order to make the colours stand out more... but Tabatha had her heart set on candy floss pink, which even though her hair is blonde, would not have showed up. She could not be dissuaded from it, so I had to relent and crack open the peroxide.
Ria chose Directions Rose Red, which was meant to be a light reddy pinky colour, but came out bright bright cerise.
It looked amazing, stained everything and refused to wash out before she went back to school, so she is now sporting a bob.
(this was why i only let them dip dye, so I could cut it off if it went horribly wrong)
Baylie chose Fire red by colour shock.
I didn't pre-bleach Baylies's hair, so it did show up as much, but Baylie's hair is still quite short and it would have been too much to cut off afterwards.
Tabatha, as previous mentioned wanted candy floss pink.
Technically she wanted bubblegum blue, but it was out of stock.
Her hair was the fastest to wash out, but she has kept her bleached tips as the look pretty awesome in her hair and don't look ridiculous on an overly fashion conscious almost 10 year old.
She is also showcasing her new "Geek Chic" over sized glasses.
