BiBi Le Pew

Just a short update to let you guys know about something totally AWESOME (not really) that happened to me today!!

Yesterday, I happily skipped to Wal-Mart to purchase some hair dye.  I had grandiose plans of being a fiery dark brunette for my roller-girl costume on Halloween, so I'd look really bad-ass!

Me!  But with a slutty skirt and pigtails.
I am thrilled to see a new color called "Dark Soft Mahogany Brown", and I squeal with delight!  A new color will surely rejuvenate me for the hellish few weeks that lie ahead of me in my application to graduate school!

I take it home and this morning, I do the laborious deed of mixing the dye and putting it on my head.  Normally, I loathe such a task, but this time, I had a big smile on my face!

30 minutes later, I'm a new woman!  It's a little darker than I'd like (almost Gothic-like dark), but I knew it would fade.  I go about my business.

Enter: Mom.  She gets a strange look on her face when she sees me, but she usually does so I didn't think anything of it.  Then, she says, "Um, did you look at the back of your head, sweetie?"


I think the best way to describe it is through a picture:

Yes, that's me.  A skunk.  Slurping on my bowl of vodka.
What.  The.  Hell.

I have light brown streaks in the back of my head that do NOT look intentional.  Greeeeaaattt.  I was going to take a picture of it for you guys but luckily my camera is defunct (swearsies!) so I couldn't get it to take the picture.

Now when someone does one of those "drive-by" farts in the grocery store and everyone looks around, wondering who the culprit is, they'll automatically think it's me with my awesome stripe on the back of my head.  My cat will run from me like the cat in Pepe LePew.  I suppose I could always say it was highlights gone bad?

So I guess I'll have to be a skunk for Halloween.  I suppose that could be pretty bad-ass, eh?

Have a great day, everyone!

Oh no! I don't think you need to be a skunk, though! Take the empty box to a salon and tell them what happened and show them what you used. They should be able to fix it!

Me, myself and I said...

Don't you HATE it when that happens??
Sorry you have been victim of shitty box dye...I want to see a picture!!!I wish I had taken a picture of the time I turned my hair baby chick yellow!

we hate you. love, us said...

Oh sad!!! I hate when that happens. I've never been good at dying my own hair.

This is exactly why I've never dyed my hair! It scares the bejesus out of me!! I sprayed that halloween spray color stuff in my hair once and ended up with pink streaks for months. Washes out with water? Lies!
