That's right, I bleached it!
It was a lot of work, actually, and it didn't turn out at all how I planned. I think with DIY hair coloring, ya gotta roll with the punches, yknow? I had planned on a magenta fade to light pink, so this is close, just more in the orange color scheme, haha. First I bought some blonde dye for brunettes, hoping to lighten my hair without bleach. It definitely worked, but only on my natural hair. So I had blonde roots first! Then I dyed the whole thing what I thought was magenta, but it still turned out pretty red. Then I bleached the tips. They came out quite orange, but I wanted the ombre to start higher. With some worries about over-bleaching my hair, I put more bleach on, starting a few inches higher. It really turned out great, though, I think! And the bleach didn't even wreck my hair.
I think the line where the orange starts is a little harsh, but let's be real: I had no idea what I was doing. I might pink it up in a month or so, but I like it like this for now!
I def love how bright it is. I feel super cool now!
I wore my new dress from Target that reminds me of one that I really liked on Modcloth... I think it was Mata Traders? It would have been great to buy the nice expensive one since Mata Traders has such a great ethical reputation, but this one was on clearance. I'm psyched about my new thrifted vest, too, and I haven't worn these sneakers in a long while! I actually wore them to my junior prom.

I bet my new hair will look even better once I actually straighten and trim my messy bangs!
