Introducing Hair Color of the Month!

Standard

I am a creative person who really just creates by “the seat of my pants”.  Rarely do I ever have the foresight to plan-out what I may need and so I use what I have on hand.  That goes for my hair color, also.

Today I decided that it was time for a new color (the old colors were “so last May”) and I had to bleach my head to get a blank canvass.  But what did I want?  White sides and back with a single color on top?  Or did I just want to paint a color on the tips of the top of my super short hair?  Or did I want multi-colored tips??

Often the cut and color/s I do myself, depend on how much I will have to look into the mirror.  It seems my vision ain’t what it used to be and so it is hard to see if I am getting the color where I want it or if it is covering what I want covered and then when I have to hold a mirror to see in the back…..well, let’s just say “mirroring” must use the same brain function as logic and algebra as I cannot figure out how to move my hands in the right direction.  You should see me back up a car and you don’t even wanna know how I back up a trailer….if you are ever behind me and I have to back up, Lord help you.

Getting back to my hair,  I decide that since today was June 1st, what if I were to color my hair the same color as the stone for that month!   June is pearl and I just happened to have a pearly-white toner and barely enough developer to mix with it.  So I said, “What ‘s the worst that could happen?” and I applied on my bleached hair and within a few minutes….I had the hair color of a creamy pearl!!!!   How serendipitous was that, eh?

Here’s my hair….not my face….didn’t feel like putting a full face on and I would terrify you if you saw me in the facial nude!!!

Next month’s stone is RUBY!!!!   I just ordered some dyes from the U.K. and I hope they get here by July 1st as the ruby color (called Rubine) is coming from them.  I think this project is going to be a hoot cause every month will be a fresh new color and I won’t even have to ponder as to what colors to choose…each month is set.

I hope you will stay on this year-long journey with me.  I wonder if anyone has ever done this before???

I just love new “painting” projects especially when I get to wear them!

Ta ta for now,

Queen Pearl

About thelumberjackandthegypsy

The lumberjack is my husband and he owns Arrowhead Wood Products; Arrowhead Toboggan and Snowshoe; and Lake Superior Furniture Co. and is the exclusive manufacturer of wood shutters for Summit Hill Shutter Co. The gypsy is me, and I have a passion for teaching people to tap into their creative side, even when they think they don't have one! I did not grow up creative or artsy and I was in my thirties before I started sewing and creating things. I am a rug hooker; artisan teddy bear maker; painter (from pictures to large pieces of furniture!); knitter; doll maker; needle-felter, repurposer; sewer; decorator; blogger; glamper; reader; vintage jewelry maker; junker; and now a shop owner. But the lumberjack and I feel our greatest gifts in this world are our four grandkids and our daughter and her husband and our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been married for more than 33 years and most of that time we have lived out in the country on a hobby farm where we have raised chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs and beef cattle. We also homeschooled our only child for her entire school years. We lived out our dream of being like the The Little House on the Prairie and they were great times. I also have a personal blog: rantingsofamadqueen.wordpress.com where I tell stories of what life on the farm has been like and other things that pop up in my very weird mind. I prefer "quirky or eccentric" instead of weird (sounds more fascinating and less creepy)!

  1. Wow.! It looks fantastic. ❤ My complexion is too red for pale hair, I look washed out. 😦

    A word of warning about the Rubine dye. Red needs tones of red in the hair already for it to cling to, other wise it goes pink. With your bleached hair and pearl tone, it likely will go pink the minute you wash your hair. I put red on bleached hair, and it was beautiful for 48 hours, then it went salmon pink (I hate pink) and paled significantly every time I washed my hair.

  2. Robyn, you’re a hoot! I’ll be looking forward to Aug. peridot, my stone, and no, I doubt if anyone has done this before.
