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,
