Liz here catching up for May (a bit late).

I decided to keep the platinum blonde, and then play around with lots of temporary hair colors.

If you haven’t tried “color bugs” or “hair chalks”, they are a ton of fun. (The cheaper ones do come off more on your clothes and hands, and tend to stay in your hair longer.) Despite color names like “midnight blue” and “crimson”, they always came out as pastel.

We were teaching a lot of classes for school groups at work this month, and I got lots of “I like your hair” compliments from the kids. Also, it was handy that the students could easily identify me. Instead of being one of the 5 ladies with short brown hair, I was the “pink and blue-haired” teacher.

Here’s a run down of the month:


050313 a

May 3- a few tentative lime green and pink stripes

050813 b

May 7- the attempt to do separate orange streaks just turned into crazy orange.

050913 a

May 9- trying some blue on the top and bottom


May 10- much more success with the streaks. There’s still some orange left in there.

051213 b

May 12- Purple for the Prince concert!

051613 c

May 16- I tired to saturate one side with blue, but this is a few days later and a bit hard to see.

051713 d

May 17- orange and green. I was compared to an Italian flag.

052013 b

May 20- purple on top with lime green tips.

052313 a

May 23- an attempt at multi-color streaks. I was told that someone who looked down at me from the balcony at work asked “what’s up with Liz’s hair?!”

053013 a

May 30-pink saturation. Actually, the color said “crimson.”


June 3- I forgot to take a photo, but this is an approximation of the purple to blonde to bright green. The green always looked terrible after a day.
