The Red Hair Rollout!



Here I am! 
 
The hair I would actually call Copper.   It took a week, 2 bleachings, about 6 shades and 1 toner before I came out looking like this and I have to say....I think I love it.  The ends are still a slightly darker color than the top, but I think I quite like that effect, and I even got a blonde highlight on one side from when I had my blonde streak there.
 
I debuted it at the Melbourne Love Vintage Show on Saturday and had a few confused looks before people recognised me! 
I matched my hair and the Autumn chilly weather up with some warm outfit colors.
 
I even matched my nails to my skirt!  Orly Glitz and a-England Camelot half moons.

  8. Certainly worth the effort - it looks lovely!

    Great mani too, do you freestyle or use stickers to get an even shape?

  9. You look fabulous! That color looks really great on you. People always fail to realize how much hair color can change your look.

    I'm going to change my hair color soon. I'm going for a more dark cherry red. I love the lighter auburn color but having natural dark hair makes it so I have to dye my hair every 4-6 weeks which is a lot of dyeing in a year.

    1. My natural hair is very dark brown so the regrowth is going to be interesting. I hope I can stick with it!

  14. Va-Va-Voom! You were born to be a redhead. The skirt is fab. But you should be rockin' a (periwinkle)blue shirt as apposed to black, especially with those eyes!
