Dye Diaries: Lavender Highlights

I've somehow been able to commit to three tattoos, but was always too nervous to dye my hair? Backwards. Anyway, I've been wanting to try out the pastel hair trend for ages now. I have very dark hair and the thought of bleaching all of it was a little scary. After browsing Pinterest heavily, I decided that some highlights mixed in with my natural color would be the perfect blend of "playful yet professional" for me.

My friend Emma is a hairdresser, so I had her bleach highlights at the salon where she works. After, we went over to her house to order yummy food and play with Manic Panic!

We mixed Manic Panic shade "Electric Amethyst" with their Pastel-izer to get the lighter shade. We ended up going back over with just the purple since my hair wasn't bleached to a level ten to really need the pastel-izer. 



AFTER

I love how it turned out! So beautiful but still subtle enough for me to get away with at my job. This will also be easier to maintain since I don't have to worry about getting my roots done. I'm all about low maintenance upkeep.

So happy with how it turned out! What do you think? xo
