Manic Panic's Ultra Violet over bright pink hair

12.30.2011
I used Special Effects Pimpin Purple recently and within a month or two it faded to this crazy hot pink!  It's so vibrant and not for me lol



I decided to try to cover it with a different brand of purple this time. My idea is that it will fade better with a purple that is more blue based.  I went with 2.5 jars of Manic Panic's Ultra Violet.  I washed it out in 3 hours and got this awesomeness:



I used the leftover 1/2 jar mixed with conditioner and washed it out in a hour. So much better!!



It looks like it has pink highlights

Update:  I have a guide on how to bleach your hair safely using coconut oil!   Bleach and dye in the same day as long as your hair is completely dry before applying dye.

First handmade cowl

12.14.2011


I got it done in about 3 days.  I do some knitting but I tend to stick to crochet.  This probably had a length of 10 inches. Now I'll love to move on to doing a scarf. Maybe infinity?

Pretty Knit Bows

12.02.2011

I decided to make these cute knit bows using the pattern from Knitted Fox Trot! I just put a bobby pin through it to secure it on. There's a picture of a pink one I made in crochet. :D



Oh! My hair is faded SFX Pimpin Purple if you're wondering. :)

The method for these curls are my go-to! 

Use a 1 1/4 curling iron on a medium setting, don't use the clamp and wrap each section of hair around. Hold for 10-20 seconds depending on the thickness.  Immediately twirl the hair and roll it up like you're doing pin curls. Secure in place! Do it all over, spray it if you like and wait 2-4 hours.  Bouncy curls that last 2-3 days!

-Put the back sides together to form the heel and slip stitch it shut.

Illustrator!

It's my first time using it. I fixed the frame in PS and mirrored for a basic idea.

Initial plan was that sketch but I had messed up my layers and had to start over.  I'm just halfway through with lineart.

My wrist isn't allowing me to finish atm.

This took around two hours to do. Of course starting with a completely different face/hair and then deciding to suddenly change it then make it symmetrical. Whoops~ I used Open Canvas and Photoshop.
