    Default Unnatural hair colour

    What do you people think about unnaturally dyed hair? Colours like blue, pink, violet or green... Is it yay, or nay?

    Blues and greens =

    But gradients, chunking, slices etc. look a bit too fussy for my taste. (I like when people look good, but without having put too much effort into it.)

    I loooove most non natural colors, you can get amazing intense color if you do it right. I used to have a blue moehawk and it was great while it lasted. It was slightly inconvenient tho as you had to bleach the strip several times and then add the color, which was a bit fussy. And it bleeds a lot if you don't have the right shampoo or something. I had someone else good with hair do it for me, but not sure I'd do it myself. For one, bleaching your hair can be harsh on your hair and made mine break off and fall out and burned my scalp and stuff. Maybe I wasn't doing it right, but it does seem like a bit of a process and time/maintenance commitment. The cool thing about natural hair is much less maintanence, but I would totally wear bold hair color if I found a way to maintain it right.

    Fun to look at but hard to maintain. And it grows out. This is making me miss my lil fohawk for real tho

    It highly depends on the person. Does the hair color suit their skin tone? Does it look good with their clothes.

    I like the colors in the above pictures.

    Mermaid hair and unnatural hair colors are really in fashion right now. In the last salon I worked at, I was the only basic bitch in the whole shop with my normal colored dark to light balayage hair, haha. All my coworkers looked like they came from the land of rainbow bright. Pink, fire engine red, green, mint, deep purple, etc.


    I was really tempted to get silver or lilac hair... but ugh, that would have damaged it horribly. My ends are already damaged from the ombre and balayage that I usually do.

    I don't like iti for me but it does just seem to fit some people's personality and look.

    My friend went intense lilac and I think it looks so good on her. I think she had grown it out before she got it dyed, though. And someone helped her. And she went thru several steps to get it that way (blond first, probably some moisture or smthg, then the purple..I do have a shampoo for blondes thats purple tinted that's supposed to tone out brassiness)..and you can see that, just in a month or two, its faded and grown out a lot from the original dark lilac purple. Dont quote plz She's a natural brunette...and I think enneagram 4.

    I feel like people should be their natural colour, including when they start greying and so on. That's just me though.

    Its soo good you definitely rocked this look. I had red hair once but it got really orange and brassy looking..I found it hard to keep the red tones aroud. Did you do urs at home or professionally? If at home, what brand of dyes/colors do you prefer?

    It faded after some time, but more to pink tones. I used to dye my hair orange too, I liked it, it was that burning bright orange colour, that I enjoyed.
    I usually use loreal or syoss for hair cosmetics. It depends on the kind of colour you wish to use, but I find loreal to be just a bit better than syoss.

    I don't hate it. I think some of it is rather obnoxious (the more fluorescent shades).

    I know someone who goes around convincing older women to let their grey/white hair shine. Mock-apologised to her hairdresser for ruining her clientele.

    I really like it. If my job and age allowed, I'd do it. My favorite is the silver/grey. If done right on the right person, I think it looks so cool. I'm not really big on a ton of different colors though.

    Purple-haired women are goddesses.

    I also really love Kat Blaque's mermaid braids right now.

    I've had every color under the sun. I'm over it these days. Trying to keep my hair healthy looking and less processed. My natural color isn't bad and I want it super long so no color treatments that I'm interested in.

    I say go for it. I wouldn't not date a girl because she has an unnatural hair color, especially when you can just dye it back and if it's done right it can look pretty good.

    Personally, I would never dye my hair just because black looks too good on me
