It has been a few months since I last did Amanda's hair and boy was her hair long overdue for a color. She had about an inch of regrowth and the once vibrant purple had faded to a dusty rose. It's okay though because she ordered more color and I had her back to the vivid purple she had a couple months ago in just a few hours. I was relieved that I had already spent nine hours doing her hair the previous time, because that meant all of the prep work was pretty much done and I just had to apply the new color.
This time, Amanda wanted her hair to look more purple. I used a violet for her shadow root, then I used a little bit of a lighter purple for her ends and I blended the colors together with my fingers. Since there was still some blue and pink color left over from the last time I did her hair, we thought it would be fun to add some pink and blue peek a boos throughout her hair.
We washed out the color, and that's pretty much all we had to do. It is so fun to have a friend that will not only let you put crazy colors in their hair, but also let you basically have complete control of how it was going to look. She just told me the colors she wanted and let me choose what to do with them (talk about some serious trust). It's going to be a sad day when she decided to go back to being a brunette.
