hahaha and if anyone is looking for little cheap dirtyish add-on gifts there's always a can of whipped cream or a thing of chocolate syrup with a little note attached detailing their very specific purpose. i.e. use on somebody's body...

i saw on the "generic boyfriend" thread that you went through with this- if you don't mind my asking, what did you end up using? i'm looking to giving my boy 18 gifts for his 18th and i've got about (errrm) 13 so far. and most of my money is goneee on these fourteen. so i'm stumped for little stuff. & needin' ideas. (i've already got candy, body spray, his fave soda, a moustache comb, -don't ask- "special coupons", shrinky dink keychains, a sewn nintendo wallet, a custom made bandana for his apparently oversized head, and a lil' soduku pad... yeah his other gifts were relatively expensive) if it helps he's a semi-obsessive gamer and kind of a quiet silly person who takes great pride in his beard growth and his extremely elderly cat. and he's kinda mushy, too. or a lot mushy. haha. anyy help would be greatly appreciated! thankies.

I just saw Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, and I was so inspired by Clementine's blue color.  I would love to do something of the relatively same shade.

Buuut, I work at Egg Harbor Cafe.  Which as the name suggests serves breakfast/brunch/lunch, so it tends to attract the elderly.  They might not be so keen on seeing a blue-headed freak seating them down to their meal.

Any ideas?  I'd love the color, but I don't know if I could do it and keep my job/pull it off.

I believe the issue would lie moreso in the opinions of your supervisor than the elderly folks. I work at Joann Fabrics and I got hired with Nuclear Red hair.. went through every other shade of the rainbow since I've been there and they don't say anything. (I'm thinking perhaps because their motto is "experience the creativity" so that would be pretty hypocritical.) But anyway. I deviate. There are really very few elderly customers who comment negatively on my hair. I've had about a bajillion old ladies tell me "my granddaughter has hair just like yours! It's so pretty and creative!"
(It's when they try to touch it that you've gotta look out. haha.) But if your supervisor/boss person doesn't want you going all-out blue you could do an under-layer dealy so that a ponytail would show the color off and leaving your hair down would cover it up for the most part. That's pretty much the only hideable way to do blue. at least that i can think of  Undecided Sowwy and good luck!

PS: Eternal sunshine is totally the reason I started dying my hair too! haha i forgot that's the reason I wanted to reply to you. I love that movie. OH and also if you're going in the blue direction I'd reccommend Special Effects Blue mayhem. From my experience it's the most vibrant blue around and it lasts the longest and best. It also will fade to purpleish. Not greenish yuck. (like Blue Haired Freak and most manic panic blues) and it won't start out innnncredddibly DARK like Blue Velvet (which is also pretty much impossible to get rid of too)

ps: i'm relatively sure the epsom salt thing is only for removing unnatural dyed colors. i probably wouldn't try it on, say, brown hair. (not to mention if your hair is brown you probably haven't bleached it to death. or at least not recently. so you can probably afford a bleach job. whereas i am on the verge of going from "girl with bright hair" to "bald chick".)  Undecided

anyway no one appears to have heard of this so i'll be trying it soon and reporting back in a bit with pics. unfortunately the laptop i currently use is devoid of several keys- including the m, the enter, the shift, the period, and the comma. (i stopped posting as a rule when this happened but fading hair sans bleach is so exciting i felt an exception was needed.)  Grin cheers

according to this website:

it is possible to fade your haircolor out considerably using a epsom salt bath.

i'm wondering if anyone on here has tried this. i've been dyeing my hair on a biweekly basis for well over a year now and have NEVER heard of this technique. i've just been bleaching. but if this works, it will be revolutionary and wonderful! seeing as my hair is very very very damaged by now and probably pretty close to falling out. it doesn't even really look like hair anymore.. anyway, if anyone has done this i'm wondering:
a) if it works, and
b) what salt : water ratio works well?

if nobody's tried it, i probably will and i'll report back on the results. in my opinion this would be pretty much the best discovery EVER IN THE HISTORY OF FREQUENT DYEING, seeing as bleach is so damaging and it's so hard to acquire true colors without prebleaching. i'm currently at the point where whenever i bleach my hair, it turns inexplicable bright/pale pink. hmmm...

i use a two dye process to get the color i want- after bleaching the heck out of my naturally dark brown hair, i first use n'rage purple, then rinse, and use beyond the zone not-so-shy-violet.  some people swear by 'special effects' dyes- but in my 4 years of regular dyeing, ive found that theyre all hype- they dont last any longer, they cost more, and you can get the same intensity from many other brands.  i used to use 'splat' brand  hair paint-blue and purple together, theyre really bright, but i cant find them anymore. Sad   

yeah i use special effects because all i can find around here is that or mp. i wanna try ordering a few other brands off the internet now though. your hair's really pretty in that pic Smiley

You guys make me so thankful for my job Cheesy I work as a waitress at a Greek Restaurant and the only dress code is that your hair must be tied up (for health purposes). Otherwise it's all up to us Cheesy When i started half my hair was hot pink, and they never batted an eyelid. But another waitress often gets old ladies asking "now why would you go and ruin your beautiful face by sticking metal through it" (referring to her facial peircings) and she'll just laugh it off. No-one sees it as offensive though.

i work at joanns now.. the other day i was on register and this old woman was talking about my hair (right now it's green black purple pink red orange and blue. i put in a bunch of miscellaneous dyes i had around.) and then she came over later and tapped me on the shoulder and pointed to somebody outside on the sidewalk who had one reddish streak in their hair and went "look! she has her hair like yours! do you know her?"        ...it was one of those priceless moments.
