So, I've never dyed my hair before, but have been wanting to dye a few pieces underneath my hair a purple colour. The only issue is that I have this red-orangey coloured hair, and all the research I've been doing online says red hair is hard to dye, blah blah, etc. It hasn't been helpful, in other words.
So I'm wondering, am I crazy for trying? Any tips that might make the process go a little better if I do attempt it? Here's a couple pics to show the colour:
This one's right in the sun, so it doesn't tend to be that intense usually lol.
I'm posting this quilt on behalf of my mother, who took many, many hours to complete this project. It's the first quilt she's done in many years, and I just so happened to be the lucky recipient. Of course I chose bright colours, cause yeah, pastels aren't my thing. It's a double, btw. (And I apologize for the cell pics, my camera went on the fritz and died quite a while ago. I should really be looking into a replacement one, hmmm...)
A few more... Addiction maybe? Hehe These were for a monochromatic swap, it's difficult working all mostly in one colour. I lovvvve colour so much... And sparkles too! I need to stay away from fumes!!!!
I'm not new to making them, I just have never posted for some reason, haha! So anyway, forgive my scanner for being a 'tard, the fishie card's yellow/pink are both lovely and bright in person and I still need to learn to use fancy complex editing programs
After being deathly jealous over a friend's kitty hat, I decided I needed to be a kitty as well. Alas, she spent $30 on a few pieces of fleece sewed together, and I don't have the extra money for that. So I decided to crochet one instead and this is what I came up with...
Crocheted with some random worsted weight yarn I had laying around that I don't remember buying and a 4 mm hook. It's really comfy, meow!
Ok, I'm not really sure where else to really post these, but candle holders are for the home are they not? Anyway, feedback would be appreciated as I'm thinking of giving them away as gifts. I apologize for the crappy cell pics, my digi cam has died and I haven't gotten another yet...
They are seriously VERY prettier in person! Really bright too.
My head is very heavy, dead straight and wont hold any sort of style for long so I need a hairstyle that can just be washed and left alone. I bleached it really blonde last year but after constant criticism I dyed it red, however the bleached parts went a really icky orange. I've got about 4 inches of relatively undamaged hair and really want to just cut off the damaged stuff and start over. However I have a condition that makes me really puffy and I'm worried cutting it shorter will make me look even worse, especially since it cant be styled. Should I cut it? Can anyone recommend a style that'll look good?
I have hair like that too (straight, heavy, difficulty holding style, etc.) and it took me over a year to decide to get it cut short for fear of looking like a 'tard. But I talked it over with my hairdresser and showed her an example of what I like, and voila! My long yucky(be thankful your hair isn't naturally orange!) hair was all chopped off! And I'm in love! I asked her about how to style it and such, and she showed me and it's surprisingly easy if you have the right products. Hair wax and extra hold hairspray are awesome!
Best advice I can offer is RESEARCH and search for styles you like and that would be flattering with your face shape. And also, you're gorgeous!
The hair I never thought I'd be able to have any crazy fun with -->
So I made Gummi bear earrings before, and liked the way they were holding out. So it inspired me to take my love of candy even further, and come up with this little critters:
Oh! I'm so in love! And my wiring skills are defiantly less than perfect, but I was slightly in a hurry and they're only for me to wear. I've had a couple requests for the froggy ones, they'll no doubt be a lot better. And one girl said she's going to wear them to our prom, yay!
So, this is the first thing I've ever really sewed...it's just a basic circle skirt made with some awesome fabric I picked up, with 2 layers of black tulle underneath. It's not the best...but for my first try I think it's ok.
Another random shot:
I still need to finish it off, but I was excited! So, what do you think?
