I’ve been thinking about dying some part of my hair a fun, bold color for a while now, but it always seemed like a bad time. All of a sudden, it feels like the timing is perfect, and I reeeeally want to dye my hair. The problem is, my hair is a very dark brown, and would probably need bleached for me to get the jewel-tone colors I would want. Still, I’m seriously considering it.

The two ideas I’m playing with: purple/turquoise highlights in the lower layers of my hair (so I could at least partially hide them if need be), or bleaching out the sides of my hair from temples to ears at the front a la a limited version of Narcissa Malfoy, and then I could color those however I wanted or just leave them, using a toner to get them closer to actual white instead of bleach blond.

Thoughts?
