11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: March 20, 2006 07:53:15 PM
Anyway, my question:  Anybody know anything about dying hair sideways?  I'm tempted to do something really funky involving horizontal stripes, but I have no idea how I'd go about it and there's no way I'd pay whatever a professional would ask.  Some picture-examples:

My sister and my co-worker both have this going on.  Basically, you do it in panels, like house siding; keep in mind that it will all overlap and what you'll see is the bottom of that, or the ends of your hair peeking out and making that stripe.  You will probably need it cut like that anyway in order for it to be a clean line. It's a really hard technique, so I'd get someone who's done hair before to help you out, if you don't go and see anyone.  Look around your area and see if there are any hair schools.  They usually offer supervised student services at a discounted price, and the students are usually a little more adventurous and progressive.  There's an Aveda school near me, and they offer color for like $20.

Basically you will divide your hair by drawing a line horizontally around the back of your head with a chopstick or hair pick and laying that on top of foil and painting the dye onto it, and making sure you do it evenly all the way around, like a one-inch high stripe.  Fold the foil carefully over everything so it doesn't get onto other hair, and when you rinse, rinse fast!  Again, this is a really hard technique to get clean and right without a professional, so even a really cheap one could do it better than you probably could yourself, and this is me speaking from my years of doing my own and my sisters and all our friends hair, and you mentioned you are new to dyeing.
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stretched ears and REAL earrings????I know it's been talked about :( on: March 20, 2006 07:47:22 AM
A lot of people do note that if their ears are very sensitive, they do not use silicone.  My ears are not very sensitive to different materials (just finishes, as long as the finish is smooth), and I have some Kaos silicone eyelets that feel great.  I just put some Vitamin E oil on my ears and pop them right through.  I put Vitamin E in my holes every time I change my plugs, just to keep them happy and healthy, and I lube up my stone and steel saddle plugs to prevent damage.  I've heard of companies who try to imitate Kaos, which uses implant grade silicone, but they use more porous versions, which WILL irritate, as your ears will be able to attach to them more easily because it's basically a surface full of suction cups.  Maybe it's the size as well.  My ears are a measly 4g (5mm), but that may allow them more room to manoeuvre without sticking.  I love my Kaos eyelets, but then again, I wouldn't have know that until I put them in and wore them around, as is the case with most materials; you just have to try them out, talk to other users, and listen to your body.

Sounds like a great idea.  I won't have anything ready by then.  Too many projects in line.  Imagine that.
I will plan on attending, if I'm not working that day. 

The date isn't set yet, so if a week later would help and we have quorum, I'd move it back a week or so in order to have more involvment.

I know I'm being evil and slightly off-topic, but this is the Cincinnati thread with the most replies and I wanted to get all your attention on a craft thing I'm organizing:
Please to not drop bomb.

I know this topic is old, but I'm trying to promote.  Amy, get up ons.

Well here's another chance:


I'm organizing a craft fair swap thing at my Starbucks.  I'd love to make a few bucks that evening off my craft, but I'm halfway expecting it to end up being a Cincinnati coffe and craft party.  It's pretty loosely formed right now because I don't know what kind of participation I'm going to get, so post some suggestions if you have them.

I've been looking for a pair of pajama pants that don't taper since November.  You're my hero.

Hi Cincinnati!  I've gotten permission to organize a craft fair of sorts at the Starbucks I work at.  We have zero business on the weekends compared to our weekday mornings, so we get to do whetever we want and take over the whole store.  A lot of girls at my store craft and sell in the cafe when they're not working.  My estimated craft DOA is around the first week of May, where hopefully it will be warm and we can set up a few tables outside too. 

I need to gauge how many of you would be interested in coming so I know it's even something that will be worthwhile and start promoting it!  Let me know if you're interested and what you want to sell; quirky and slightly irreverent crafts welcome.  Hopefully, the Cincinnati Craft Mafia (http://cincinnaticraftmafia.com/ will be involved as well; they're stupendous girls whom I highly recommend meeting, as they are hilarious and inspirational, and helped me a lot when I first started crafting.  The whole point of this show for me is to build community (which is how I got corporate approval as well), but I would love to meet more Craftsters, and make a few bucks as well.

(Location is off 275 between 75 and 71, PS.  I'll get more specific once we get rolling.)
