Wild Orchid

Last week I made a trip to a hair salon for the first time in years to do something I’ve been dreaming about for long time: dye my hair purple! Besides the tiny gold highlights I got in sixth grade, this is the only time I’ve ever colored my hair.

I’m so, so happy with it! Honestly, I need my mirrors confiscated so I will stop staring at my hair and actually get some work done. The “Wild Orchid” color turned out a bit more pink than I anticipated–I’d just like to say I did not intend to match my hair to my glasses.

The hairdresser dyed select pieces towards the bottom of my hair, so it sort of just fades into purple. It looks different depending on the light, and sometime it’s so subtle I can barely see a hint of color.

Cory of course had to join me for a few photos!

  • Love it! I’ve always wanted teal streaks, but I can’t in our office! I really like how the color looks in a ponytail :)
