While I've still got the freedom to do it, I gave dying another pastel shade a shot - this time, pastel blue. I've not got long now before the inevitable happens... the full time job. And when that happens I'm pretty sure crazy coloured hair will be deemed unacceptable. So I may as well get my rainbow shades in now! I decided on pastel blue purely because it's a colours I've not tried.

So how do I feel about it? I feel quite mermaid-y and a bit like that cocktail from Wetherspoon's... I think it's called Blue Lagoon? The one that tastes of toilet cleaner... (I actually quite like it admittedly) but anyway, yes, I quite like it! I used diluted blue semi-permanent dye (like this one from ASOS).

I've only been living with blue hair for 3 days now and surprisingly it's not attracted too much attention yet, although I have only been out the house once... therefore the only reactions I have to go by is my Dad's (typical) reaction of 'MY GOD ROBYN' and my Mum claiming she quite likes it! The woman at the Post Office looked a little taken aback, but you have to forgive the country folk for their unworldiness. Although, I probably do look a bit unworldly in the other sense.

I'll be posting a video on how I achieved this pastel blue, as it's not a colour I've seen that around a lot compared to those who've also shared my previous ventures into the realms of baby pink / lilac. I'm editing the video at the moment, so you can expect that to be uploaded late next week!

The shirt is from Ever Ours. It was £5 in the sale - incredible right?! I'll be posting it in an outfit asap!

  36. hahah love your dad's reaction! that would totally be my pop too. i think "mermaid" defines it quite perfectly, and i love how it has the ombre effect and is really light on your ends. i'd love to try a shade like that but, alas, i have one of those stinkin full time jobs :(
