Under a Blood Red Sky

If you missed this last night, you still get three more chances: Oct 8, April 4 and Sept 28 of next year. Miss those, and you’ll have to wait until 2032.

Picked up these 1960s clip ons over the weekend at an estate jewelry store. My close friends and family know I don’t really wear earrings these days because I’m allergic to certain metals (I don’t know what metals though….). My ear lobes get super itchy and puffy so it’s just safer to not wear earrings. But these clip ons are perfect for the Indian wedding I’m attending next month!

Last hair update: after discussing ombré and dye with a friend, he suggested I get toner to even out my hair color. So I went to Ricky’s and of course they were sold out. But the stylist at the in store salon said I could just color my hair like normal, no toner necessary. I told her what I wanted and she suggested this medium blonde color. I was a little scared because it is salon grade (versus box color), but I am really happy with the results! I feel the color is much more natural (as natural as Asians with blonde hair can be) and not so in your face orange. Ideally I’d like to go for a light blonde (similar to what I had last year), but I’m really happy with this color.

I’ve been wanting to re-dye my hair blonde for a while now. And even though ombré is no longer trendy, I really like having lighter hair. So I just went for it and dyed it myself!
I used the L’Oreal feria ombré kit, which is really great! It’s super easy to use because of the brush applicator it comes with. And the color came out almost exactly like the box. I will say though, it says to leave in the dye for a max of 45 minutes and I probably did close to two hours….I did one application and wrapped each section in foil. Then went back to check, and applied more dye. Finally I did a third application on sections I wanted to highlight, mostly near my face. It worked really well (and more importantly my hair doesn’t feel fried) but I felt the color was a little too orange.
The next day, I used a Garnier dye which is also specifically for dark hair but doesn’t contain bleach. With this dye, I was also able to touch up some spotty areas that had “holes” in the lighter color. This dye I also left on much longer than the 45 minute max—probably an hour and a half. It didn’t lighten much, but I feel the color is warmer and less brassy. It’s still not as blonde as I would like, but I’m happy with it.
This was also the first time I’ve ever dyed my own hair. I have dyed my mom’s hair for years, so it was something I was comfortable doing myself, but it’s definitely nice to have an extra set of hands (and eyes!) doing the back sections. The line where the dye start is a little jaggety, but I think it’s better looking than the super straight, precise line that a lot of people with bleached hair have. Overall, I’m happy with the results. In a few weeks I may try to go lighter one last time to get a true ombré effect. But for now my hair needs to rest!
