MY HAIR is RED now and a LOTD inspired by my dress

Well, my hair is kinda red. If you have been following me on twitter, you know that last week I tried (and failed miserably) at dying the bottom half of my hair red. My hair is naturally very dark and I dye it black due to some grays that I get.

So last week when I bleached my hair first, I let the bleach sit for an hour and it did NOTHING! So this week, when I bleached my hair, I put strands of my hair in foil and let it sit for an hour again. It worked better this time, BUT not perfectly. Some strands really lightened up and others never seemed like there was bleach on them at all!! I have no idea how or why that happened, but it is ok..I actually like it!

OH well..I am not a hair dresser, it is not perfection
The red in my hair is Manic Panic Vampire Red and I bought all my hair supplies and dye at Sally's Beauty Supply Store. It is a semi permanent dye and I let it sit in my hair for about 4 hours to get this color.

Here it is!

Not bad right! Not perfect either. I REALLY love this color RED, it is what I always wanted. It is not bright in your face, it is pretty subtle and dark deep red.

Here is my dress that inspired my look. It is from Express

So this is the vampire red color. I think it looks gorgeous. It suits your hair style and gave your hair an interesting look. It looks a little gothic, but in a good way.
