Crazy Colours - Tutorial

Crazy Colours. 

Since i found these babies i've loved them! They are brilliant. I thought i would put a few colours in my hair tonight and saw this as a good opportunity to show anyone who isn't sure how they work. 
You can buy these from most markets, and one off beauty/hair stores, a shop called 'Pulp' sell them and of course you can get them online (usually cheaper) I get them from Amazon. 
Please note : these work better on blonde hair.

Step 1-

Gather the hair you wish to dye. Wash it so it is damp, ( i just rinse it under the tap)

Step 2-

Apply the dye to the hair.


I have done mine multi coloured to experiment and as my hair is long an wavy, i did random bits from the under layers. 
You can also mix the dye with conditioner to tone it down to the colour you like. 
Leave in for around 15 mins, depending on how bright you want it! 
You can mix the colours or do half and half ect.. 

Remember, these dyes are wash in, wash out. So don't be afraid! Go for it :)

Step 3- 

Wash out with your normal shampoo and conditioner, and dry and style as you wish. 

I dry my hair up side down for more volume :)

Heres how mind turned out :)

I hope you like it! Let me know if you have tried any out id love to see your posts :).

Also i took pictures of my shorts that arrived in the post today :) Very summery! 
They are from Ark Clothing

Lots of love to you all,

Holi Festival !

For my current university design project, my inspiration has been the Hindu Holi Festival. 
It is a celebration of the arrival of spring, Holi is a time when man and nature alike throw off the gloom of winter and rejoice in the colours and liveliness of spring. 

I can't wait to travel after university and experience culture like this! 
But for now, here are some images i have sourced for my research, i had to share them as they are so amazing! 
I love bright injects of colour and this festival is precisely that and more! 
It has led me to look into theses colours in our natural world, for example flowers and tropical fish. 
Enjoy ....

While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her self-confidence --- which i believe does make the woman.
