HBB Buzz: Advice On Changing Your Hair Color

By: Allison Lawrence, @allisonbrooke93

Hello there, lovelies! As you may guess based off of this article’s title, I am going to be discussing hair color. Specifically, I am going to shed light on my opinion about dying hair various colors. As this photo suggests, I don’t let my hair stay dull.I am very serious and passionate about dying my hair colors….from red to purple to blue. But, I also have dabbled with the natural hair colors too. So, let’s begin!

The first time I ever dyed my hair was in seventh grade. At that point in my life, pink was my favorite color, and I was convinced that to pull of pink dresses, I HAD to have blonde hair. I blame Barbie! I begged my mom to convince our hair dresser to dye my hair has blonde as we could. It started out with highlights, but eventually we dyed my whole head. The color turned out to be a medium blonde type color. Looking back at photos from that time, I completely regret the decision. In eighth grade, I dyed it back brown just to get the blonde out.

I kept the brown for a while, but continued to use dark brown box dye. I wanted chocolate brown hair. Then in the summer before senior year, I went BLACK. I bought box dye and came out jet black with side swept bangs. That didn’t last long either.

This is where things get interesting! In November 2011, I decided I wanted to be Hayley Williams. I wanted to be a ginger, a fiery red head. But, I had black hair and would have to strip my hair of color then bleach the black out.

This is how that turned out. From there, my hair dresser and I got:

I graduated high school with a more bright version of this red, and have tried so many colors since then. For instance: the week before graduating, I wanted to touch up the red and dye it brighter. I picked up box dye but accidentally came out with pink hair.

Today, I am almost 21 years old and sport a blue/purple/teal combination, of sorts. August 2013, I began working on the lavender and purple realm of hair. Going from bright, cherry red to lavender is a tough job. My stylist bleached my hair then dyed it purple TWICE for the color to take. That time, it turned out to be a blueish, purple.

image

From this point, I was able to go pale lavender in the winter; and today, my color combination is along the lines of:

A lot of you may be either scared or nervous to try dying your hair the way I chose to. There are some things to consider. One of those is if your hair is healthy enough to bleach. I would say that as long as you condition your hair often and bleach as instructed, you’ll be fine.

Another issue may be how the public perceives the color/getting a job. I can personally testify on this issue. Certain companies won’t even allow me to apply because of my hair color. BUT, I am 20 years old. I am young. If this is your issue, I have two ideas for you. The first one is to use hair chalk first. It isn’t permanent, and can allow you to test out the colors. While the other idea is that you have a wig that can cover up your color IF your job will not allow the color. If they job is that vital, purchase a cheapish wig and you should be okay!  A friend of mine did that recently. She is a blue hair twin of mine, and her mom suggested the wig!

All in all, my opinion on dying hair is that I love how much fun you can have with the color options. While we are young, why not try things out? Hair dye  is never truly permanent. It can always be dyed back. That’s what I think some people don’t get. They will freak out over a hair color before remembering that it is temporary. So, my advice to you is- if you wanna try out dying your hair… no matter what color it is, go for it! Home dye isn’t expensive and offers many colors. Manic Panic or Ion are two great brands for unnatural hair colors.

Just go for it, and have fun!

xoxo
