I HAVE SUNSHINE YELLOW HAIR!

I HAVE SUNSHINE YELLOW HAIR!

Hey everyone!

As people who keep up with me know, I’ve been going through some health issues recently resulting in me being exhausted, deflated and just feeling downright unwell and not myself at all in all honesty. I seem to have gradually lost my inspiration and motivation with my makeup because of how I’ve been feeling and I wanted a change to try and kick myself back into gear as my funky style and makeup is a big part of what makes me the Alice that I am and that I’m proud of, I never want to let this illness take that away from me, no matter how bad it gets!

So seeing as turning to makeup for a change didn’t work, I decided to go full speed ahead with the hair. I’ve been bleaching my hair since I was 13 years old so it’s pretty easy for me to change it up and stick a dye on top of the blonde whenever I want to as it tends to wash out in a week. Over the years I’ve gone pink, purple, orange/ginger, brown, silver, blue, green and at times a weird mixture or hybrid of a few different ones. As much as I’ve loved being all these colours, I just didn’t feel like they’d give me the kick I needed. I wanted something BOLD, something not only other people couldn’t miss but something I couldn’t either.

I went to see my favourite band of all time, the wonderful Paramore on the 21st June and spotted the most gorgeous girl with mustard yellow coloured hair and I just knew my hair was going to be as close to that colour as I could possibly get it. It genuinely just complimented her so much and the macabre aesthetic she had going on and I just genuinely wanted to be her so shout out to random mustard girl for inspiring me. The closest dye I found was ‘Cosmic Sunshine’ by Arctic Fox and it cost me £21.31 altogether with shipping from America for two small bottles.

I genuinely thought I was going to be a lot more scared than I was as it’s such a drastic colour and change but I got my roots done and was just so super excited to see the finished result. I honestly can’t even say I had one pang of regret whilst the dye was on (it was literally fluorescent yellow while it was on my head). I got home and just couldn’t WAIT to put my makeup on to see how it all looked which is a feeling I hadn’t felt in so long, actual motivation to look nice and get dressed up!

We only actually ended up using one of the bottles which was odd as my hair is quite thick and an average length – so I have another left over for a top up at some point too! It was my boyfriends birthday on the Wednesday so we were going out for pizza on the Tuesday evening to celebrate with his family and I decided to go for a really simple orange toned matte shadow with a black wing, false lashes and a burgundy red lip similar to these pictures, you can see a pic over on my Instagram!

I’ve definitely found that more simple makeup looks, look better with hair as crazy as this. Saying that, I really want to try some colourful and out there looks while I have it so let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in seeing in my upcoming posts!

It has taken me a few days to get used to looking in the mirror and decide whether I’m fully committed to this colour but I actually love it, I’m not sure whether I will keep it yellow as I get so bored with my appearance so quickly I’ll probably be buying bright red dye next week… But I’m really feeling it for now and i’m hoping it’ll keep me feeling a bit brighter for a while.

What do you think of the yellow hair!? I’d love your honest opinions! I’ve surprisingly had more good reactions than bad ones, well to my face anyway…ha!

’Til next time,
BTB Xx

    Absolutely love this hair colour, I definitely couldn’t pull it off but it really suits you! I wanted to go an auburn/ginger colour recently but it’s been a disaster and now I have bright orange roots! ?

    Yellow hair looks amazing on you! I’ll have to try that brand out as I used a wash out green dye that was totally crap! Xx

      Thanks so much! 🙂 They are a fabulous brand, i’ve washed it 3 times so far and despite so much dye coming out, the colour hasn’t faded at all! Xx

    Sorry to hear you’ve been ill, but glad to hear you bounced back, I am loving the hair and make up in this post, you’re looking beautiful and super healthy. I am so happy you opted for a bright yellow, something about it just screams happy and bubbly and I think that’s really brave of you.
