sewing and peacock hair
Yes, that's what the last few days have been about! I decided that having the two colours was too much maintenance (both colours fade at different rates, which is a pain), and also didn't suit my new style as my hair is growing out.
So I decided to replace the pink and green with Peacock Blue (Crazy Colour), which I originally bought to go with my peacock dreads back in October 2012 ;) Man, I miss my dreads - can't wait for my 'tail' to grow so I can have some length again! Here's me at the hairdresser getting the bleach done first - the only time you'll see me with blonde hair!! (and that's my hairdresser Sarah - she's awesome :P)
When I got home, it was very hard to take a picture, because the colour is quite multi-faceted - it also makes my eyes look scary-blue :)
And after 1 wash, it looked like this (unstyled, to show more of the colours) - it's more green-blue at the roots:
It will be interesting to see how long it lasts ... last time I could get away with dying every 2 weeks instead of 1 - but it really depends on the condition of the hair at the time.
And today's job: sewing all 8 of these infinity scarves, photographing them and putting them up in the shop ... I love weaving, but I don't love sewing so much ;) Plus, Adelaide had a week-long heatwave, which meant that my studio was a no-go zone as it was so HOT! Cool(ish) day today, which means I'm catching up.
