Blue Red

My hair is the same colour as my fraggle icon!

thefridayfive questions

(And funnily enough I've had my hair done today so I've posted some photos for you!)
  1. What type of hair do you have? (Thin, Normal, Thick, Frizzy, etc.)
  2. What colour is your hair currently?
  3. What colours have you dyed/highlighted your hair?
  4. If you could dye your hair any colour, what would it be?
  5. What is your hair's length?
1. What type of hair do you have?
Thin, straight, baby fine and can't do a thing with it!

2. and 5. What colour and length is it?
Here's a couple of photos of my hair today.

The back is two different reds a bright copper and a pillarbox

The side has the two reds and a few bits of brown

3. What colours have you coloured/highlighted your hair?
In my life just about every colour under the sun and sometimes all at the same time!
I had various reds for the last 8 or 9 years as being freckly and pale I find it suits me the best.
Recently I had fancied trying blue, but about 3 weeks ago I went into a wig shop and tried on some wigs. I tried a blue one and a purple one. The blue and purple colours looked absolutely ghastly against my skin. The tone was completely wrong! (Good job I tried before I buyed!)
Actually, I can remember the disasters better than I can remember the good colours. About 20 years ago I went blonde for about a month (It looked terrible!) about 5 years ago I went a very dark brown (Made me look anaemic!) and I once had it black (again for a very short time as I looked anaemic).

4. If you could dye your hair any colour what would it be?
If I've ever fancied a colour I've gone for it really so the only colour I have ever wanted and not had is a really natural ginger colour. If hair dye manufactures could find a way to dye peoples hair so it looked naturally ginger I would go for that. I have always felt that I should have been a natural ginger.

I was talking in a cafe to the woman serving who is a natural redhead about 6 months ago and she finished by saying
'You'll understand what I'm saying being a ginger yourself!'
I said in a strange tone having bright red hair, 'This isn't natural you know. I dye it .'
She answered 'Oh I know it's dyed now, but I've always thought that you just liked to enhance the fact that you were a proper ginger!'
That woman made my day!
