Platinum Blonde Life

jane Have you ever wanted to be a platinum Blonde but think it is to hard or expensive? I have been doing my own hair for a while now and can share with you my ways. If you already know then keep calm and carry on. j4 hhhm4gwenyI wanna be a platinum blonde! Just like all the sexy stars, Marilyn and Jeane, Jayne, Mae and Marlene! Yeah they, they really had fun! Blondie!b  In a luminous day-glo shade. Walk into a bar and I’ll have it made in the Shade! ‘Cause if that’s all it takes; a double processed blonde….I wanna be a platinum blonde!bbb Yeah I even tried wearing a wig for a while. It was the right colour, but not the right style! Gonna get some peroxide at the beauty supply…See ya later!hair7

You will need a mixing bowl or Applicator bottle for your dye. You can even decorate it like I did! I prefer a bowl for this mix because it is thick! I bought mine at forever 21, but you can get them at your local Beauty Supply shop. Sally’s is where I purchased these! 30 creme developer(will last a little while), A bottle of Clairol Cream Hair Lightener, and two packages of Activators. I use two because my hairdresser taught me this way. So here is a step by step guide to becoming a blonde.

j1 Before You start, try on a wig and see if it suits you! It takes a lot of upkeep and work so no lazy babes allowed! It does itch, it may burn, and every head of hair reacts differently! Breakage can happen. I am a mousy brown so it lifts quick on me. Also You need virgin hair, or a lot of growth since your last crazy color change. I had to wait 7 years to go back to being platinum from going black. Only if you want soft hair still! Also have a spotting partner, my boyfriend does my roots in the back. So If you are lazy, not careful, or patient, then don’t try this at home. If you are ready to start doing your own hair or roots…It is so easy, it becomes routine, like shaving, or brushing your teeth. Shall we.hair3hair1 First put on some gloves and pour in the ingredients!hair2hair5 Now mix it all up good, and it will be a thick bleachy blue. Like runny peanut butter. Always Apply toy our roots first. If you are doing the whole head then go for it, but please cut of any damaged hair before you begin. Go in sections, from root to tip. Then kinda shampoo it all together with your fingers to get it all! Wrap it in a cap or not, and go under a dryer, or not, and just let the lightening begin. It will either way. If this is your first time then lift until orange yellow, and shampoo, condition, and wait a week or day or two then do the whole head again, if you want white hair! Do lots of hair masks! I do one or two a week. Pastels do not show well on yellow hair!  Ialso recommend manic panic Ultra Violet for color control. You have purple hair for weeks but why not?  If you are doing just part of your hair, say the underneath only, or just bangs, or a streak; then section it out first and pin the rest away from it, apply your bleach,and wrap in foil, or anything to separate it from bleaching the other hair. hair4 Here is what a root touch up should look like. Not perfectbut it works. Now when you are doing a root touch up do it often at least every 3 weeks. The less overlap the better and less damage you will have. I part my hair down the center, and brush on the dye, from the roots I slightly brush up and overlap so I don’t miss any hair, it is a bitch to go back. Then use a comb or the back of the dye brush to dig another part, and flip the hair over. Go from left to right, whatever works for you. Then keep doing that carefully until you reach the ears. Then flip it all up, pin it,and do the other side, carefully lying down bleach over your roots and layering the next part over. Practice makes perfect. You will get the hang of it, just keep straight lines if you can. Then pull it all up together over your head in a sloppy bun. By now you should feel the tingle and see some lightning, then have your partner do the back the same way. Be careful, it is time sensitive, it is bleach! I usually wait 20 to 30 min before rinsing. It all depends on how fast your hair lifts, so when you see it at a pale yellow then its ready. Carefully shampoo motion the roots out so you really make sure you got it all,from this time and last time. I recommend an ash blonde toner and purple shampoo to keep it white. Rinse,shampoo, and condition right away when you feel ready. b3  Always remember to Wrap your hair before bed if you want to remain with soft pretty hair. When you bleach It you damage the hair, but This helps a lot! Plus It helps hold your curlers.lost1gweeen

Starving Star

banner A starving artist is an artist who sacrifices material well-being in order to focus on their artwork. Iv’e always considered myself one of those but My hairdresser insisted thatI am a starving star! as he styled my hair to platinum perfection. He is near 80, still doing fabulous hair, and got his beauty degree in the 60’s. He raves about the good old days when women were lined up to have their hair styled! In all sorts of unique and fabulous ways. I love him, he has been dolling me up since I was a kid and taught me everything I know about hair! Having bleach on my scalp and sitting for hours under the dryer is second nature. Because of Ray I got to rock perfect pin curls, and waves in high school! I am lucky to know him. This is me at 16 shooting a pin up calendar. The Girl Can’t Help It. pin2 Hey Sailor.pin pin4 I even got my Monroe pierced at 17. Lipstick was Ruby Woo by MAC, everyday! Below is me at jr. prom, I had Ray make me Marilyn Monroe. We’ve got our obsessions!

I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

Rose Iced Tea

rose1  Roses are red, violets are Blue, sip them in tea, its good for you! Well at least the roses. They have so many health and beauty benefits, a soft floral flavor, and so beautiful to sip. Pink, and rich in natural antioxidants! I love it Iced and warm, but its summer so cold it is! You can buy them online too if you can’t at the market. All you have to do is steep them in almost boiling water like you would any tea, but a bit stronger. Let it cool, and toss in a handful of rosebuds. Place it in the fridge to chill or meddle for a while, then pour over Ice in a pretty glass. Enjoy.rose3 There are lots of articles you can read online about its benefits, but I found this pic that sums it up! Also fun to experiment with other flavors, like green tea, or my favorite, some coconut milk, sliced strawberries, and a little honey or raw sugar. It taste like a delicate french candy I love.rose2rose4

badss I love this movie so much,my mom showed it to me when I was little, and used to joke I was the Bad Seed. I am no evil child, but I love them as characters! Rhoda is cute, devious, smart, and  doesn’t have much of a conscience, which makes her quite the little sociopath. Rhoda was so pissed that she didn’t receive a medal that she felt she deserved, that she ended up killing her competition. Accused of drowning her classmate,she goes mad and denies, lies, and kills more. Her Mom has no clue what to do with her monster, and wonders if it is nature, or nurture that spoiled this egg. Is evil hereditary? Or are people made that way? badbadddd Why Can’t You wash of blood? baddd badseeddbbbbaabadseed5 So I up cycled this vintage peignoir and decorated it in Bad Seed Style. I dyed it baby pink, painted and sewed on the patch, made mini ribbon roses and bows, then crystal-ed on a seed. I love thow it came out! I then styled a Rhoda look and went to go shoot it by the lake, and play the role! I didn’t drown anybody but I was a crazy little brat.lig  What will you give me for a basket of kisses?badseed2  Give Me back My SHOES!badseed4 You tell lies like that, you won’t go to Heaven when you die!badseedI don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t feel ANY way at all.badseed3

Get Dolled Up

garden2 I Have a motto, Get dolled up early! I often find myself telling this to other girls when they ask me about my routine. If I get dolled up early on, then the rest of the day goes a lot smoother for me. Although I love my makeup ritual, It is nice for it to be done and over with. I feel sexy, and ready for wherever is to come. If a friend invites me out I can say yes! Every time I pass a mirror I dance around with extra energy, and get more work done in the process. When I am feeling cute and stress free I put extra magic and love into everything I do. Again I am writing on my behalf and what is good for my mental health, and playing dress up is.garden3 This vintage embroidered floral romper is my favorite piece I own. The Shell Purse I completely hand sewed and decorated to ethereal mermaid perfection. I can’t live without my cheap pink Lolita Heart Shades! garden You can roll your bangs around a bendable curler and pin to make faux pin up bangs. Or bumper bangs.garden7 I love to play make believe, an escape from your life. I love to play a desperate actress from the Old Hollywood days. Reading vintage books on breaking into the business, rehearsing monologues, drinking martinis,and preparing head shots to send in the mail. All in good fun, if it’s not for you good for you! I pretend I live here.life5 A lot of people ask me about my morning routine. I do try to get dolled up as much as possible, and was lucky because I worked at the coolest thrift shop where I scored most of my clothes and was able to express myself creatively on a daily basis. So yes! I put on designed playlists, make tea, or coffee, and play! I dance, put on makeup, and see where my mood takes me. I play in my closet and arrange outfits for days. I sing,I get weird, and get to know myself. I do this now in between my sewing and painting, but did it a lot more when I had a job. If you can find time to do this you must.funpinkgarden44
