Around two months ago I decided that I needed a little hair change – as I always do – dyed my hair orange and chopped off my long bangs. It’s been fun, but as usual I’m about to go back to my lovely pastels. There’s just one more 80’s work look involving crimped hair and Whitney Houston makeup that must happen next week before getting back to basics. So, I thought I would share my orange hair tips before saying goodbye.
Orange is fun. Constant redying, is not. I started out with Direction’s Apricot which looked cool, but lasted approximately one hair wash. Do not recommend. Next I mixed Direction’s Mandarin with a tiny blop of Bright Daffodil. Cool color, better longevity, pretty bad fading. Boo. However, the orange that has worked best for me has been Napalm Orange from Special Effects. The color starts out a dark, neon red-ish orange that almost hurts to look at (picture six) and fades into a nice, intense yellow based orange (picture five) that after five hair washes still doesn’t need any touching up. Very pleased with Special Effects as always and will keep using their hair dyes for my next adventure. Talking about that, please say a little prayer to the hair gods for me so my hair will go blonde without any nasty stains when I bleach it next week..
Hey guys. It’s been a while – hope you’re all doing great. I’m currently blogging from the passenger seat of my boyfriend’s car. We’re driving home to Copenhagen after a long weekend visiting my family in Jutland. It was his first time meeting my family and it went great. Well.. Expect for me nearly coughing up my lungs and/or drowning in snot. Having the flu is so delicious.
Anyway, fall has arrived and it’s beautiful and I’ve started taking more pictures again lately, so if my boyfriend keeps urging me to blog, maybe I’ll start posting more frequently. In all honesty, I never stopped feeling like a blogger or grew tired of doing this. The makeup artist part of my life just really took over the past year and a half. Have a lovely week everyone.
Oh boy, it’s been a while hasn’t it? Woops! I guess there would be plenty of excuses, but I’m not going to use any of those. I’m in love, I’m a live, the sun has been shining and work is great. This year’s Roskilde Festival was my favorite one so far – I feel like I finally learned how to design the festival so that I get the most fun out of it. Already very excited about next year. I’m currently drinking a cider, enjoying my first day off in 12 days, looking at places to travel with my bestie next month and waiting someone very special to arrive so we can cuddle and watch Ted (I totally thought it was a movie for kids?!) before going to see the sequel in the movies tomorrow night.
Hope you guys have been doing great too? I’ll be back soon ?
I just returned to work after five days of vaction spent visiting my lovely grandparents, secondhand shopping, eating way too much food and enjoying more quiet surroundings – the fuzz of working in central Copenhagen is something I love, but sometimes smaller towns can be refreshing. I’ve also managed to go (rainbow) blonde for now after struggling to remove ye good ol’ purple hairdye that left a very unpleasant green tint in my hair. But I have a brand new bottle of Special Effect’s Cupcake Pink waiting for me, so it probably won’t be long until I return to my natural hair color – baby pink. Are you guys enjoying the spring weather kicking in?
