Mermaid Hair Inspiration Galore

May 2, 2013

If you still haven’t tried out dyeing your hair a crazy colour, you’re missing out darling! A couple of years ago you could use an excuse like it was “not safe for work”, or that people would glance at you on the street, or that it’s toxic for your hair. Nowadays you can throw all these things in the bin, cause they’re absolutely not valid anymore.

The only excuse you could have for not dyeing your hair if you love it, it’s that  bleaching it is likely to ruin it a bit: but I’m telling you something, yu can cut your hair, and they do grow up again!  If you’re blonde, you have no excuse.

It’s been quite a long since I’ve been addicted on all shades of green, blue, green and blue together, peacock, teal and “mermaid inspiration” in general. So what is generally meant by mermaid hair? Long, wavy, dip dyed or dyed green/blue hair.  I have no personal experience with this kind of colour, since I’ve always died my hair in shades of pink! But I sure can suggest you the better brands to do so. Go Directions, Crazy Colour and Manic Panic and you won’t go wrong!

 


Even celebrities gave up to green/blue hair, and here you are some serious hair-spiration!

   

Gwen Stefani obviously did it way before Katy Perry and Lady Gaga (it was around 1990 and I was about three years old!). Lady Gaga went a bit too far with her passion for blue hair as well. Someone else tried but didn’t succeed, see Juliette Lewis. She looks quite not right with that colour, she just can’t pull it off! Last but not least, not really mermaid-y, Amber Rose rocking her super short turquoise hair.

The very last picture that’s a mix of turquoise and blue looks amazing! Are you gonna take a picture of your own hair and post it up?

I love seeing girls with really funky coloured hair, when done right it looks great.

Thanks for coming over the blog and leaving such a great comment, hope to see you again soon :).

Hi Arash! Thank you very much! Of course I’m going to take a picture if I do that, I’m going to take pictures anyway, I am not shy at all hahahah!

I love interesting hair colors–in high school I had the tips/underside of my hair dyed purple. Unfortunately, in some professions it still wouldn’t be acceptable. I work in U.S. Latin American relations and I can’t have funky dyed hair (I take out my nose-ring for work everyday and cover up my tattoo).

Best,
Rachel

I’ve tried both Atomic Turquoise and Shocking Blue. AT was “theoretically” cooler, but with my complexion, I think SB looked better on me. Yeah, I wish bleaching wasn’t too harsh on your hair. I fried mine when I kept rebleaching for half a year to keep up with having blue hair.

Once in a while I’d do hair chalking, which is really cool. I posted a pic recently on Instagram. I might do a post on it sometime. It’s as temporary as makeup with no bleaching required, but I can’t imagine that stuff being that safe even though it’s not permanent. It does dry out my hair and is hard to comb through with it on.

And yes, DO post photos when you color your hair 🙂

I hate to burst every ones bubble. But the first picture is photo shoped you can see where the color belles over on the right collar. And the way its weved throughout the hair isnt how a real persons hair would look. Somthing with simular colors is achavable. But thought you might want to know for your blog that its a fake photo
