Last night I decided that I wanted to change up my hair and I had 3 jars of dye: Manic Panic Electric Lava, Fuchsia Shock and Hot Hot Pink.
After looking at my hair with all the different colors I had, I decided I’d try to lighten the top section of my hair which was dark and had a permanent dark purple/black on it from several months ago. I used Manic Panic’s Flashlighting bleach kit for 30 minutes on the top section of my hair and the two longest parts on each side in the back. On the parts of my hair that had no permanent dark dye, it lightened up to a light blonde. The darkened parts of my hair lightened up to a turquoise shade.
Because of this, I opted to not use all 3 colors I purchased and instead put Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink over all of it. I thought it would work well with the blue, purple and pink tones in my hair.
I had Ray take pictures of my hair out in direct sunlight, you can see how vibrant certain sections are.
This is in indirect sunlight outdoors.
I’m wearing Revlon Colurburst Lip butter in Lollipop on my lips. I dusted a bit of Illamasqua pressed foundation in 115 on my face and that’s it.
My left eye is bothering me so I’m doing hot compresses on it and avoiding makeup.
I love the variation in color in my hair.
What do you think of the color?

I love it! It’s awesome that the colors are so bright in sunlight but muted indoors
Thanks Silke! Me too. I could have bleached it more, but I’m happy with how it turned out.
I think you suck. You throw any old mix in your hair and it looks great. Meanwhile, I go to a “professional” and spend a fortune, and end up with a f’ing wreck. I hate you. (BTW I hope you all realize I’m being sarcastic, I totally love Phyrra!)
LOL! Naw, I debated doing what I wanted to do originally, which was throw 3 colors on it, but I couldn’t figure out any way that the orange on top of blue would look good. I figured it would look terrible. So I decided that trying to blend all of my current shades together with hot hot pink would give me some variation in color and be fun.
Part of being an at home colorist is being willing to accept that it won’t be perfect.
Sizzling! How do you keep it bright?
Actually I follow the tips in my Hair Guide:
I don’t wash it every day and I use sulfate free products.
You look fantastic! I was never brave enough to do something that bright with my hair. I admire your knack for mixing colors. You mix anything together & it looks fabulous!
Thank you Kristi!
Your hair looks awesome! =D
I love it, so pretty!
Nice and bright for summer! I love the variations of color that show in the pics taken in sunlight. Sorry about your eye. I hope it gets better soon. I know this time of year especially my eyes freak out on me.
My allergies are bad and sometimes things that don’t normally bother them cause them to freak out. Hot compresses and something to reduce the swelling help, but if it gets worse I’m heading to my doctor. Typically just hot compresses are all that’s needed.
Love the color!!! I love how you have such a mix of shades. I also love your blue star earrings! Where did you get them?
It’s this etsy store:
Gorgeous colour! May I ask what your natural hair colour is, and also do you always pre lighten your hair before putting the colour on? <3
My natural color is a very dark brown with a hint of red. It really looks like black in a lot of light. There’s a picture of my natural hair color in my How to Care for Colored Hair Guide:
Love that color on you!
Thank you Sophie!
