HAIR-SPIRATION | OMBRE, MANIC PANIC AND UNDERCUTS

I’ve been growing out my dyed hair for over a year now. It’s been torturous because every time I get bored with my style or go through an emotional experience the first thing I want to do is chop off all of my hair immediately and bleach it into oblivion.

While I’m waiting waiting waiting for my hair to grow out let me tell you what I’m planning.

The images above I’ve been collecting on my desktop for months. I feel like they say grungy, easy to care for, no-heat styling required and they all have that little touch that makes them look finished. But that’s just what I feel when I see them, let me tell you more about what my hair really says.

WHAT DOES MY CURRENT HAIR SAY?

My hair is both the laziest part of my style but it’s also the most important. If you follow my blog you might know that I’ve had the same side cut for centuries years. It’s something I’ve grown to think of as a part of me. And it describes my style without words:

It’s a no fuss hair style. Just brush and go!

It’s also effortlessly interesting and alternative. I don’t need to pile on bat motifs and crucifixes (unless I want to) in order for my underlying love of alternative style to shine through!

Now that you know my two major style goals you might see a lot of this in my hair-spiration.

WHAT DO I WANT MY NEW HAIR TO SAY?

It’s obvious to see, there is no way I’m getting rid of my side-cut anytime soon. What I do want to change is:

I want my hair to be professionally cut. No more scraggly ends that I cut myself.

I’m growing out the red and I’m aching for an ombre; my natural colour to blonde. The great thing about ombre is that I don’t have to worry about my roots growing out all the time. Originally I wanted to go fully bleach blonde but I know that I’d never keep up with that.

I want to be able to change it easily. With a blonde ombre I think I’ll be able to achieve this with a couple of Manic Panic vegetable dyes. They’re perfect for mixing to create new colours – endless options – and they’ll wash out!

WHAT DOES YOUR HAIR SAY?

What does your hair say and are you sick of it? If you are, it’s probably time to collect your own hair-spiration and find out exactly what you want your hair to say about you. Because from first thing in the morning when I’m sulking around in my pajamas to late night trips to the grocery store for cat litter, I want my hair to scream me.

All images have been found VIA online sources. Unfortunately I never intended on uploading an images including them so I don’t have the exact links.

  1. I love the idea of a brown-to-blonde ombré, I'm sure you'd rock it! I'm also very lazy when it comes to my hair, I try to blow dry it but mostly I don't even do that. I only just got a haircut that shows off my sidecut which is refreshing, both literally and figuratively. Sadly I'll have to dye it a natural colour soon because I will have to start looking for a job now.

  2. I had long blonde boring spaghetti hair for too long. Since I went bob I feel so much more myself and it really makes a diffrence if the cut is done by a professional. I can just recomend a makeover from time to time to feel fresh and new, at the same time, if you found something that makes you feel like your very self – stick to it and make it your signature look.

  3. Going through the same thing…. Growing out my hair, wanting blond hair. My hair is natural and terrible…. Ugh. I'm dying to do something with it. But, no, growing it out

  4. Loved this post! ^_^I too get that same yearn to change hair when something dramatic happens in my life or I get anxious. I am dying over the look on top right photo, because it is something I can never reach with my own hair. 🙁 My hair is too blond, too wavy, and way too thin.

  5. Your blog has changed sooo much since back in the day, if possible I love it even more <3 I love messy, grungy hair but my hair is super-fine and centre-parts itself so it always looks kinda vaguely neat on its own >.< Best of luck with growing yours out, it's the most frustrating thing.

  6. Well said, I also think my hair is the most important part of my style, it gives it that alternative look no matter if I'm wearing a dress or a brand shirt and shows off my personality <3
