As winter fades, there’s a spring in my step. My lighthearted mood is matched by my new hair color: candy pink streaks!

This season, I’m gravitating to lighter colors and romantic styling.

White cat-eye shades: Dolce and Gabbana 6064 sunglasses, a gift from Sunglasses Shop
Dark purple scalloped coat: Anya Hindmarch (she makes an incredible Marie Antoinette purse!)
White lace dress: Liz Lisa (here are pics of the Hong Kong boutique. My dress is similar to this one by Dolce & Gabbana.)

I’ve dyed my hair all colors of the rainbow, except Barbie pink. To get this effect, my genius stylist (Isolde Semple) layered red-purple-pink shades of Joico K-Pak Color Intensity.

She was inspired by Valentine’s Day hues. I love the light to intense gradient; I’m not a fan of a single, all-over color.

We joked that I can still call this my natural color… the black underneath, at least!

I wanted a pair of white frames for some time, and fell for these Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses. The big cat-eye is flattering, and I like the floral detail on the side.

Shh. I think I’m going to wear more outfits like this.

I refuse to be put in a category, even if it’s a positive one like Goth, or Harajuku style. For better or for worse, I won’t stop mixing styles and experimenting (as you saw in my recent Art Deco Miami posts).

Spring style tips? It’s a cliche, but timeless pieces are very much worth the investment. I got this coat and shoes about 7 years ago, and still wear them today. I’m sure it will be the same for my new designer sunglasses.

And I always advise getting your hair dyed professionally, especially if bleach is involved… too many people have ruined their hair by trying to DIY.

But overall, have fun. Play with fashion. Don’t be afraid to try something new.

    Getting it dyed professionally does usually end up with a better result, but a lot of people simply can’t afford it. Getting my hair dyed professionally around where I live is upwards of £70, doing it myself costs me time and, depending on the type of dye from around £5 upwards. Of course, fancier designs with more colours and bleaching and stuff are more expensive. Anyway, the cost difference is HUGE and for a lot of people DIY is the only way they’re going to get dyed hair. It’s really important to read the instructions carefully and follow them, though. Leaving bleach and dye on too long can be really disastrous, and things like allergy tests are essential – for example, I’m allergic to most black and dark permanent hair-dyes, and will come out in nasty sore raised red bits all over my head if I try and use them.

    • I totally understand what you are saying. Some of my friends go to beginner stylists or styling schools (like Toni and Guy academy), where you can get it done by a pro (or student learning pro hair) for half the price – so there is a middle option. I personally recommend investing in this, rather than spending the $100 on other fashion – but that’s just my two cents :)

    • Yeahh… there are the Hypercolor dip dyes if you want temporary streaks!

      • I remember your article on that. I’ll have to look into it. It’s nice to know it’ll take that well to darker hair.

  • Vivienne

    Your hair looks flawless all the time, even with all the dyeing! :P

  • I never thought you’d do pink ;) But it looks lovely on you :)

    I’ve had many colour combo’s over the years, starting with blonde and bright red and then from 2003 the more alternative colours such as blue, purple, green, orange, & even fluoro yellow recently (but only my shaved side bit!) At the moment I have more of my natural dark hair than I’ve had in years…I think it’s good every few years to take a break and let the bleach grow out. As for fashion I”ve tried…don’t get me started!

    Do you know if anyone sells hypercolor hair dyes like the ones used in color changing clothes?
