I love this thread! Dos of the year!

Wake up, wake up, Darlin' Corey.
What makes you sleep so sound?
Them revenue officers a'commin'
For to tear your still-house down.

Well the first time I seen Darlin' Corey
She was settin' by the side of the sea,
With a forty-four strapped across her bosom
And a banjo on her knee.

I got my hair professionally cut and colored for the first time in...seven (?) years this past March.  These photos are from around May, when I did a full (roots, bleach, and semi-permanent color) touchup.  I used the old highlights as a guide, but went from subtle streaks of red and purple to thick chunks of fuchsia.  (Unfortunately, I don't have any photos from the trip to the salon for comparison.)

I used Colorsilk #20 (Brown Black), a RAW volume 40 bleaching kit from Hot Topic, and a 50-50 mix of RAW Fuchsia Fatale and conditioner.

CherryBomb, that is gorgeous!!  The cut and color both really suit you, it's a great combo.  I love the intensity of that blue. 

Do the Beyond the Zone colors hold up well for you?  I had a bad experience with a pink shade that washed out really quickly..

Ahh!!! I totally never saw this until just now...Sorry! I know you asked like a million years ago, but in response to your question, I do like the beyond the zone, I tend to recolor my hair every 3-4 weeks, (the same color, I mean), until that bottle of dye runs out, it does fade from that vibrant color to a bluish-seafoamish color by 6 weeks if I don't keep up with it. I have noticed that reds and pinks by beyond the zone don't hold up as well as the blues, purples and greens... not sure why. I just dyed my hair about 3 weeks ago with their darkest red (can't remember the exact name, vampire red or something) and it's already faded COMPLETELY out. I keep meaning to redo it, but, I'm lazy... ^_^

Im trying to make the blonde grey, something like that

I don't post much here but I have been reading for years. THIS was finally a thread I could actually take part in sooooo...

My hair normally-

My hair two months ago when I went funky for the first time with Manic Panic Vampire Red which washed out very quickly. LOL-

Oh and I'm just making faces to be goofy not because I think they are attractive!!

My hair now. I call it Dark Cherry Dr Pepper and I really like it.-

I finally invested in a set of clippers the other day because I was going crazy the way my hair was growing out. I now have an undercut!

A few months ago:

I think my hair grows abnormally fast on the back of my head. I don't mind that it's not well-documented.

Here it is now:


I love it, but it may have been a bad idea getting the clippers. I don't want to stop trimming!
