1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Questions About Hairstyles! on: May 24, 2009 10:50:46 AM
soo I have a question for all of you..actually two questions.
1. my bangs get really greasy and icky really fast. like within a day of washing it and it never used to get that way that quick. the rest of my hair will look fine but just my bangs are icky. is there anything I can do to fix this?
2. I'm going to dye my hair auburn for when I go to hawaii (have been slowly getting there from when I dyed my hair dark brown) I also want to get streaks in it but not sure what color.

with streaks in any of these colors:

ok and this is hilarious but I thought about getting streaks the color my cat is LOL!


which highlights will look best with the intended base color. also I'm up for any other suggestions as well. but I want something lighter, that'll look good on me. a good fun summer vacay in Hawaii kind of hair color.

1. Some people just get greasy bangs, if it's too much of a hassle to quickly lather then up would you consider a dry shampoo? Just spray at the root and comb through for an extra day or two of oil free goodness.
2. Hawaii I think lei's and tiny bubbles and bright colors. I think the orange would pop against the red nicely. Even though I think a blonde would be more complimentary. My inner hairdresser is conflicted as always.
Best of luck either way. If you go orange, bring it with you for touchups!

Aww I had missed the faces.
I love the fabric choices, they compliment each other quite nicely.

I've been coloring my hair for the last 6 months black.  I'm done with it and I want to go back now. 

Here is my advice as a professional stylist: You are going to have to strip the hair with bleach, that is the only way to remove black. I wish people would never color their hair black, because it is the most difficult thing for the hair when they decide they want their natural again... and can be the most damaging...

Great advice, I just want to add that it's a good plan to go in for a consultation with the salon you pick and get a price quote. This will prevent any surprises and give you an idea of how experienced the colorist is at color correction. Be prepared to get to know your colorist because it is a process.
If you experience color fading after going through the process, it's normal because your hair has gotten some damage but it will eventually even out. Don't be discouraged black hairs!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: To Sash or Not to Sash? on: May 09, 2009 11:53:00 PM
Thank you all very much for your opinions!
I've decided to not sash and to make a nice thick border. This is also experimental but I'm going to keep it up and see what happens. The irregular size will just add to the charm. Possibly.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / To Sash or Not to Sash? on: April 26, 2009 07:25:06 PM
Hey everybody, I'm Diana and I'm first time quilter. I learn by winging it so I have no idea what I'm doing. Phew, alright let's get to the meaty bits.
Last weekend I cut out my pieces- which was fairly successful, despite forgetting to leave selvages. Today I assembled the blocks which came out to be fairly perfect 9"x9"'s but I need some advice on whether or not to add some sashing. I don't mind it being a busy quilt, obviously, but I wonder if it's such an odd size (54"x36" before sewing) that I should add some less busy fabric in between to tie it all together? Like a white with multi colored polka dots or something.
This is just an opinion poll so let it all out!

Sorry, took me a minute to fix the pictures.
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Questions About Hairstyles! on: March 16, 2009 01:21:34 AM
I was wondering if anyone could answer this question for me!?!? I was given a bar of LUSH Henna hair colour from my mom the other day, with no instructions. I have browsed their website forum and was just wondering if any fellow craftsters have tried it and  if so any tips or suggestions on using it!

Here is the website.... www.lush.com

Thanks for any help or feedback on this!

I believe in their paper catalogue that have detailed instructions on how to use their henna products, available at their stores.
Still I must warn you to do a patch test, as some people suffer reactions to the plant derived dye, mostly painful scalp issues. Also you should not use it on previously dyed hair, and it is permanent which means no using any other sort of dye until it grows out. Plan on keeping hennaed hair until then.

Since you ask for experience, I can only give you mine.
I'm a year out of cos. school, assisting at a higher end salon working towards my chair (in Chicago thats commonplace), and am comfortable in knowing I have job security. Everyone needs haircuts, even in a recession.
As long as you enjoy it, why not do it? I was the only one in my class of thirty who did not have a relative in the business, had a bachelors, was also six years older then 95% of the aforementioned class, and had no earthly idea if this was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Still don't, but I'm enjoying it for the moment and by next year I will have paid off my education.
I believe as long as your heart is in it, you'll make money. I'm not a naturally talented stylist but I've worked hard towards it and have been reaping the benefits. It was difficult holding a part time job & going to school and dealing with classmates that were absolute idiots but beauty school is just the basics. It's not a harbinger of what kind of stylist you'll become. That's under your own control and you're lucky enough to have a mother who will influence your style as well.
Best of luck in your decision.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting Chart???? on: March 09, 2009 11:34:06 AM
Charts are read from right to left, from the top to the bottom.
Row 1: K8, yo, ssk, k1, *k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k1 *pattern repeat, k2tog, yo, k8
I hope that helps.

This further inspires my desire to make the knit squid from Coraline.
Which I've seen twice. In 3D.

Love her twisted expression.
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where to buy border print fabric? on: January 29, 2009 07:32:56 AM

Wow! Seriously great idea! I have several laying around the house that could be put to use-- and, I'm going thrift-store shopping in the near future, and they're always brimming with tableclothes in need of new life...

Thank you, Diana!!  Grin

Your welcome, but the idea wasn't solely mine. Craftzine had an article about it back in the day that struck me when you posted that picture.
Good luck!
