On Wednesday, Melissa and I went to Camden early in the morning in search of Manic Panic hair dye to wait for it....DIP DYE OUR HAIR. Yup, that's right, Melissa decided to dip dye her hair pink, and I decided to dye it purple! Due to a misunderstanding as to when Cyberdog opened, we ended up going to Superdrug and buying bleach, and then our dye. I finally decided to buy Schwarzopf Live Luminance in L76 Ultra Violet.
We went back to my house and proceeded with bleaching our hair, then dying it. At first, I felt that the purple in my hair wasn't bright enough so when Melissa left, I used some leftover dye and dyed my hair again. As a result, the purple became a lot more visible and the shade of pinky-purple was exactly what I wanted. Although you can still see some bits of bleached hair, I quite like it as it adds the the messiness of the dip dye effect. What do you think?


I will be posting some photos soon of my hair with an outfit, but that will probably be on Monday as I'm going to a wedding (where I will be taking some photos too) on Sunday. So stay tuned for an outfit post in a few days!

Also, I will be replying to all your lovely comments on Monday too as I have the whole day free :)
