So What Happened to Oct/Nov. Haircolors

Standard

I am pretty sure I have Creative Attention Deficit Disorder.  I cannot seem to finish most every thing I start creatively (and in every other aspect of my life).  I am all amped up and buy everything I need (and more) to get me going but halfway through I get distracted by something else and I am off on a different creative path.

It makes me crazy that I am that way but I seem to not be able to change.  I don’t know if I was always like this, but it has been my modus operandi for the past two decades.

Someday I may seek a therapist to help me understand why I do the things I do (my mom and hubs would say it is a form of rebellion and perhaps, they are right….but don’t tell them that or they will think they are right all the time and my life will be a living hell!)

So getting back to my hair…..I did bleach it all out for October to go Opal but as these photos will reveal, the blue did not bleach out and I was not about to bleach it again as my scalp goes numb for a good 24 hours after a bleaching session and even I think that can’t be healthy.   So I just added an ash blonde toner to it and as it washed out it became opalescent but I have no photos to prove it.  (I did but because I am so technically challenged I thought if I added photos from my general photos to a “Hair” album that I could delete them from the general photos and they would stay in the album.  Either that is not true, or I did it wrong because all the photos that I deleted after putting them in albums are now gone from my ipad.  Whether or not they are up in that elusive “Cloud” I do not know as I have no idea how to access this “Cloud”.   It is such a challenge being me…..)

And in keeping with the technology challenged thread, it just took me 20 minutes how to figure out how to access my photos from my ipad to post these pictures since WordPress changed the format on my blog….no wonder I have high blood pressure.

So, since October was a bust, I kinda was dishearten about November and knew that if I colored it Topaz for November, I would have to bleach it all out for December and I just wasn’t up for that so instead I buzzed the sides and back down to the nub.  I REALLY wanted to just buzz the whole thing but no matter what I do, I just can’t rock that Uncle Fester vibe.

So here it is, December’s look……the teal on the faux hawk is beautiful in real life…..the shapes are my husband’s doing….I KNOW, right…….but I must have gotten him in just the right mood cause he was game to try it.  He just said to me today, that he needs to recut the shapes since they have grown in since we did it two weeks ago. I have not left the house so I have no idea how this look will fly in public.  It must be my most dramatic do to date.  The first photo is my inspiration….the others are pure me!688DBCA7-0974-43A9-879A-83B0D5849238

This is right after Scott did the coloring so it is wet and in real life it is no quite that vibrant and the faux hawk stands straight up.   If I ever go anywhere and actually put on make-up, I will take a photo and show you how it looks today.

As far as next month and going Garnet…..we will just have to see…..

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. It’s looks AMAZING.!! ❤ You so ROCK that look. Oh, how I wish I hadn't promised to let my hair grow. 😦 I love the teal mohawk, the shapes are great and the colours go perfectly with the teal. I wish I was so creative. A garnet mohawk will look great with those colours too.!

    • Well as you probably know by now….I shaved my head down to the nub. Needed a fresh start. Spent hours and hours on Amazon looking at wigs. If only I was 40 years younger, I would so get some long, Game of Thrones, kinda wigs. I think (at least for this winter) I am going to get a few funky wigs and have fun with them. I just ordered a purple, collar bone length one…will get in on Thursday. I have a couple of full head wigs now and two fake ponytails which I will use under hats to hold them on since I have no hair to pin them to, and “Rastafarian crochet hat with brown wool dreads that I am going to add my own multi-colored synthetic dreads to and use a scarf or bandeau to cover the hat (but do you think I can find a dang needle anywhere in my house???? They are all at my studio….). I will be posting photos of the wigs so let me know your favorites!!!
