My New Hair Pictures - Pink & Orange.

I’ve been a bit (ok, a lot) delayed in getting this written up and posted due to both illness and also technical issues as I actually had it done on September 9th, but better late than never, right?!

Let me finally introduce to you my new hair that I had 'done' at the Wella Studio in Manchester; a place I’ve been going to since I was about 16 years old (I've spoken about it before here). I’m actually that late in posting this that I’m due to go for my next colour appointment on Tuesday next week – oops, sorry about that. ;-)

Anyway, I still really wanted to post about it as I was over the moon with how bright they finally managed to get it, especially the orange. Before my appointment I had toyed with the idea of changing to peacocky colours (turquoise, blue and purple) at the ends due to a number of failed attempts to get the brightness of orange that I was looking for, but I decided to give it just one last shot… and I’m so glad I did.

Throughout the month since having it coloured, I have been complimented on my hair more than ever. I guess as it’s so noticeably bright, and with such a contrast of colours that it’s hard not to pay attention to it. I actually don’t mind though, I mean it’s always nice to receive a compliment... even though I still don’t know how to take them and usually get flustered before saying thanks and rushing off with a bright red face.
Sorry for the quality of these ones, but I wanted to show images under different lighting, although the top images are more colour accurate.
In case you wanted something similar colour wise (as I do get asked about this a lot via email) the shades/products that were used to get this result were as follows: For the pink they used Wella Special Mix 0/65 with Koleston Perfect and I believe 6% and the orange was Wella Magma 0/34 and 9%. The percentages are to do with how much lightening/lifting your hair would need, so don’t focus too much on those if you were to want a similar colour, just make sure you know the shade numbers for your hairdresser.

Also the technique is somewhere between dip dye and balayage as I wanted all the ends orange, but without a definite line showing, so they brought the orange tips to varying levels where it meets the pink to achieve this. It was done freehand and using foils to keep the colours from merging.

I’ll be sure to get any images from my appointment on Tuesday posted up a bit sooner, especially if there’s anything new to report on the colour front. ;-)

Do you like bright hair colours, or do you tend/prefer to stick to natural shades? x

  1. Wow, your hair is absolutely amazing! I've dabbled a little bit with hair colours, but, despite wanting to branch out into something super colourful, I always tend to stick to the same, natural-looking shades. I think I'm just going to have to go for it!

    1. Ahhh thank you very much, glad you like it. If you're wanting to go for brighter colours but aren't entirely sure, you could have slices or balayage pieces through it to start with, just so you get used to seeing flashes of colour in there. However, I just went for it as I thought the worst that can happen is that I have to get it recoloured if it didn't work. I'd say to go for it for that reason if you're wanted to have super colourful for a while now. Scratch that colour wanting itch. :-) xx

    1. Hi Nicolish, ahhhh thank you so much. I love that you think that, it's always nice to know that you've got it right, especially with such a bright choice of colours (my view was that it was either going to look hideous, or be genius , but that if it was hideous, it could always be coloured over, haha). Thanks for commenting, it really made me smile; actually, both of these comments did. xx

  3. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. http://www.robecart.com
