      If I didn’t work for a law firm, I’d consider it.

        I’m a lawyer and I have electric purple ombre. I just put it in a bun for court.

        You are my hero.
        My hair’s bright blue at the moment and I kind of weaseled my way into it at work.

        That is fantastic!

      This shows up on my TL while I’m waiting for my Color Jamz in Raspberry Kamikaze to set in. I hope this shows up since I have dark hair and I don’t feel like bleaching

      OBSESSED! I love the color hair trend

      Thanks so much for saying I’m not too old! I’m 47 and have never used a color on my hair that doesn’t actually grow out of somebody’s head somewhere in the world, but I’m having a strange urge to do purple bangs in my blonde pixie cut.

        Im 49 whats stopping you lol

        That sounds like the perfect time! A blonde pixie cut would take color great, and if you decide you don’t like it, they’ll grow out in no time. And 47 is definitely not too old to play with unnatural hair colors.

      Dyeing my hair Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise in August. because why not. :)

      I really, really want to do a fun color. I have for years. I’m almost to the point where I don’t care about being too fat or too old to do it but…I’m a natural red head with freckles and all that jazz. All of the people you see looking great with fun colors of hair have luminous, clear skin and complexions that look great with any color. Someone find me pictures of natural red heads with the complexion of a red head and fun hair color. S.O.S

        I feel ya. I am a natural blonde, and (not bragging just saying) I actually look good with dark brown and red hair, too! Then I tried to dye it purple and it was a massive failure so I covered with that burgundy red, and promptly discovered a color that was NOT flattering. That being said, if you find your color profile (cool summer, etc (there are lots-o-quizzes online)) you could come up with some colors that might look good, also you could go to a Sally’s and try colored hair clip-on things next to your face to see what looks good. That’s what I am gonna do anyway. Good luck!

      Holy crap that color in #2 – where did you get that gif, and does it lead to information about how to get that color? Also #3 is the best reason of all. I’m 32 and on medical leave from work. Time for pink hair, because I CAN fuckers.
