The Blonde Kids

half-shaved head

Just a quick update to show you guys what my hair looks like right now! I worked up the courage to have the left side shaved off (it’s more Alice Dellal than Ruby Rose, I guess) then bleached it to get rid of the roots. I then applied a light gray dye to tone down the yellowness. We also bleached Nan‘s hair and we’ll be dyeing it today.

I’m unsure if I should keep it blonde. It’s kind of growing on me right now but I’m still looking at dyeing it pink or red. Tell me what you think!

(It looks better now than when the second photo was taken… I think. I’ll post more about this whole thing tomorrow!)

Edited to add:

      Thank you! I’m keeping it until the ugly black roots start showing.

    So fun! I think I’m going to have some steps shaved on Wednesday, and maybe doing a color or ‘print’ in the shaved area. I like your blonde but I would like black too. That’s a bitch to undo if you change your mind later though!

    I like it the way it looks right now then when the roots start showing again, try bleaching then dyeing it pink or red.

    It’s better blonde! Or you can try using different colors for the shaved part, so it’ll be noticeable(?) Overall, it’s great!

    • Reply Helga May 8, 2011 at 10:09 pm

      I CONSIDERED THAT, TOO! Like dye the shaved part pink or purple haha.

    YOU LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL! I think that’s your best look right there! The shape of your face does so much justice to the haircut, not everyone can pull that off. MUST BE THE JAWS! And the color! God you’re so pretty. You’re rocking this look so hard! <3

    Heh, lucky for you that shaved looks good on you! I’m envious. I totally want to cut my hair super short, like a pixie cut, and dye it platinum, but I’m afraid of the amount of damage (not to mention growing out my curly hair) and I end up chickening out.

    But kudos to you! It looks grrreat.

    Woot Woot! Did it, me likes. BUT I don’t like the blonde. THe first photo I think your hair looks great, but the blonde… meh. Congrats – you’re brave for doing that but I think it looks good (also on other girls). I only have the bottom of my head shaved – I like the feeling :) And I have so much hair anyays so…
