Ga-spiration

With inspiration drawn from Lady Gaga in the September issue of Vanity Fair, I decided to give the 'Old lady' grey/purple rinse a go!


As you can see the gorgeous Gaga has a full head of colour, however, last time I dyed my hair I got told by my manager to 'get rid' - so this time I made sure I didn't do the whole hair and only parts:

These pictures don't do it justice, my bangs look a more grey colour and the sides with a little more of a lilac tint. I love it! I wanna do my whole head but I'm giving it the boss test-run tomorrow.

I used "Virgin Snow" by Manic Panic (which is actually a toner) you can pick it up HERE at Hairbomb, who give very good customer service and fast delivery.

What colour have you dyed your hair before? What colour do you want to dye it?

  2. Your hair looks great! The dye was kinda hard to notice at first but I can see it a lot in the first picture now. Good luck with the boss test-run!

    My hair is dyed red but it's faded to a more auburn/ginger colour right now. Re-dyeing time soon!

  5. I used to dye it every color of the rainbow when I was younger, but for years I've had a job that won't let me.

    As soon as I quit, I think I'll go fire engine red.

  13. Oh by the way if you do dye it all I recommend Loreal Expert Silver shampoo. It's by far the best I've used to keep my silver looking fresh. :) x

  14. Hi there,
    I'd love to have your hair colour but I've been banned from the bleach.
    I've been dyeing & bleaching my hair for over twenty years now & have in that time sported most colours but alas there comes a time when something’s got to give & unfortunately that something seems to be my hair...it's really wispy & fragile so all I dare use on it now is natural Henna once a month.
    Should I want any other colour then I'm exiled to the wig shop but that's not so bad cause I really rather like wigs, they are lots of fun!
    I think Lady Gaga looks very Miss Havisham-esque in that first pic.
    …xXx

  15. @sammi - ah thanksyou i've been trying to find a great toner shampoo!!

    @calamity jen - eek yes I do try to condition but i hate my hair feeling limp. I love the whole Miss Havisham feel - theres just something about jilted old ladies that gets me.

  16. This looks so great on you!! It wouldn't suit me in a million years, I can't dye my hair because of the state of my scalp but I remember having electric blue extensions when I was 12, eeeek!

  17. :) Great colour and great placement of it too!

  18. i've only done dark red and black as I have dark brown hair already! When i was younger i dyed it more often, but at 41 I'd look like a freak with lavender hair!! enjoy it while you're young- it looks CUTE!!

  19. OMLG! Sorry, couldn't resist posting that now that Lady Gaga has replaced God in text talk lol I've also had my hair every colour of the rainbow in my youth. My friend had to use 40 volume peroxide on it to lighten it to white a few times. I'm amazed I've got any hair left! Your hair looks great! I really like the lilac. :)

  21. I absolutely adore Gaga's hair this colour, and yours has come out amazing. I'm quite desperate to bleach my hair, but I've just gone from bright red back to brown so my hair is feeling pretty horrid. So I'll wait. I just started reading your blog today and it's amazing. You've done such a good job. xx
