Fake dip-dye

Thursday, November 8, 2012 |

Back when I was still a black-haired girl. How I miss this hair....

This post was supposed to be done back in August when I had just dyed my hair. And when dip-dye was still a thing. Not sure if it's still a popular thing in Malaysia now, as obviously I'm at UK and have no idea what's going on in Malaysia....


Three months after I dyed my hair.. and now the red has all faded.. turning into chestnut brown color. So now instead of a red dip-dye.. I have brown dip-dye.


Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.


Back in August 2012, I was fascinated by the idea of dip-dying. I had always resented hair dye as I couldn't really stand the black roots growing out, and touching up every month would cost rather lot. When I knew I could just dye the bottom part of my hair, leaving the top black so even if the new roots started growing it wouldn't effect me, I was determined to do it.


And of course, I was influenced by Vanessa Hudgen's purple hair dip dye. Awesome.



However, when I got to the salon and told my hairstylist what I wanted... I was told that to dip dye a bright color I needed to bleach my hair... and since was hair color was really dark I needed to bleach more than once. And also dip dye would create a very obvious line between the two colors....the stylist didn't know how to make it possible for the colors to fade down...


So long story short... I faked a dip dye by just coloring the inner layers of my hair reddish-purple.



With half of my hair held up.. the bottom layer of my hair. At that time it was still a striking red.





With all my hair put down...


Didn't really look the same as a dip dye, but I liked the effect well enough. The only downside was the pink color water I got whenever I washed my hair for one whole month.



It looked more obvious under sunlight though. Usually only a hint of color could be seen at the tips of the hair.


Some random photos from when my hair was still red!








Can you believe this only cost me like RM60...?


If anyone is interested.. I did my hair at Hedkandee Hair Studio at Taman Equine, Seri Kembangan. [FB link]


Next time I should try this with straight hair.....

Halloween 2012

Fluffy rabbit for the night!

31 October 2012, Wednesday

I actually celebrated my first Halloween ever at Newcastle with the crazy people here! First in a life time! We didn't really have things planned out earlier so its a relief we still had one hell of a night.


In the evening as the sky turned dark (yeah Newcastle turns dark at around 5,6pm now), we started getting ready. Girls and their makeup. Isk.





And the award of the best dress of the night... of course goes to the JOKER!

Clap clap for Ying Hao for actually going through with the idea!

As for us... we gals spent rather lot effort on the face makeup instead of the costume....






Some of the other costumes....

Zombie!


The two cat women!





Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson from the TV Series Sherlock



Little red riding hood!

Afterwards we just went from club to club, walking in the cold acting like stupids and taking random photos....




Shots!







You certainly don't get this kind of Halloween at Malaysia. People will think you went siao.


Been enjoying two relaxing weeks so far... almost time to get back to assignments and stressful life...... but not before the Nottingham games this Saturday!

Until next time!


I can withstand cold more than I expected,
