let's do this.

Today I am visiting Sheba and pals and going BLUE. No reason other than that I'm bored and I just like how it looks? And it will prompt me for some very amusing analogies from the mouths of my classmates? Also, it would change all of my clothes, because with each outfit I'd have to find a way to match it with blue hair, and I think it's a good way to force myself out of this lazy style rut I've been in for a while.

I think we're going for a frosty blue, a la this editorial in the new Dazed & Confused (which, ef why eye, is GLORIOUS. Courtney. is GLORIOUS.)I think with this color it can be soft/cottoncandy-y or robotic/intense whenever I want. Surprisingly versatile in that way, no? Also, model chick with the hair needs to CALM DOWN. STOP jumping. I'm TIRED.

If the frost is too difficult, I will go straight up BLUE a la Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind:

Other reference points, aka people that make colored hair look cool, aka people I wish I was:Katie Shillingford by Tommy Ton.Proenza Schouler SS10.Enid Coleslaw. "It's not like I'm some modern punk, asshole. This is CLEARLY a 1977 ORIGINAL."

On another note, I rarely write about having been featured in some type of publication here mainly because...I don't really know actually, I think that most of the articles I have seen are more or less the same? And I feel weird being like "Look! A newspaper!" However, I was really excited to be in the new issue of Mykromag, and in such good company, too! (Lara Stone as a nun? In illustration form? Yes.) It's one of my favorite online publications and Jean-Paul Paula and Sonny Groo are personal style iconszszs of mine..and in the article I talk about my dad's nerdy dancing (which is honestly pretty close to mine.) Read it here if you're interested! And hope that my hair doesn't mutate and become a lamb-human when I try to dye it!

Have fun! I think it would be very cool do dye it blue and then do purple tips. Just to mix it up :)

Emzu said...

Awesome unique hair colour idea (:

Chloe Tweeny said...

i'm sure it's gonna look epic! can't wait to see it

Peacock's Hat said...

The blue is going to look so effing cool, I wish I could have blue hair, unfortunately having very dark natural hair limits me somewhat to dying it bluey-black instead. It always amazes me how Enid got her hair that colour after the black. I think she must have bleached the hell outta it.

Edwina Bulfrage said...

There is another really good blog called 'foxy man' where the girl goes through every colour of hair that is currently been featured in fashion magazines around the world and then where to buy the actual dye products- you should check it out- its amazing!

Insomnia said...

Good luck with your dye action! I have dark hair so the only color I can dye it in, without my hair falling off, is red.

Sam Harvey said...

I am so happy you are going through with this. So you just doing platinum first and then adding the blue. This is a fun leap off the side of the canyon. Can't wait to see you! Back to my sewing project! http://lara-serbin.blogspot.com/

haha the lamb mutation. sucks that they burnt it that would be freaking awesome to see it mature.
it reminds me of that deer god from princess mononoke, which i have recurrent and perpetual nightmares of.

That first image for Dazed&Confused is beautiful, I love the colour, the clothes, and the setting is all wonderful!
By the way, congratulations on your feature in In Style magazine, I'm watching out for that :)

Soren Lorensen said...

just went over to read that interview and it was refreshing to read someone talking to you like you are a normal person rather than treating you like a rugrat or something

oh yeah and ps. can't wait to see da hair : ) i loved that dazed editorial too.

pss. i quoted that line from ghost world this morning haha. "oh how PUNK!"

Tiny Quirks said...

yes yes, BLUE! so excited to see it!

Stacey said...

Your school doesn't have a policy on unnatural hair color?

Blue's good, but green's always better.

Dodo said...

OMG blue hair!! Awesome! Hope the dye will stay nice (cold showers help a lot and I owned a L'oreal shampoo + conditioner that worked great [its a light pink bottle but I think you won't do anything with this information anyways])

And to the person above me, green can turn too easily in puke hair :/

Fannah said...

Frosty blue, how delicious. We can't wait.

Maybe a just straight out blue would look to marge simpson, a frosty blue would look nice with ou color skin.

Stop looking said...

blue is by far my favorite color i have ever dyed my hair. i think that you will look great with it. just remember that if you want it to stay blue you have to have a water softener and use shampoo for colored hair, otherwise itll turn green. [mine turned green after a while and i liked it so i kept it for another month]

Tornangel012 said...

I was Blue all last summer and loved it so much! If it weren't for having jobs that enforced "normal" colored hair I would still have.

here's a pic

Zoe with 2 dots said...

i need ideas for twiggy poses for a momenta dance. can you help me?

M. said...

I think its great that you are going to dye your hair, and the choice is brilliant. As i was reading through a lot of your posts you say that you love hats, i'm a big fan too and if you are ever in england or stockholm check out the store beyond retro, they have a huge assortment of gorgeous hats.

WendyB said...

Even in the early '80s we were desperate to identify ourselves as 1977 originals, so that cracked me up.

Are you using Manic Panic? If so, I will send a picture of you to the MP ladies.

Ross said...

Is it going to be lighter with your dark blue under streak a'la Proenza?

pagesofsweetpeas. said...

frosted blue is going to look so amazing on you. (oh-look a rhyme!)
i used MP last few years for a neon blue, not sure that they have a lighter one though. this year im purple all the way.
just be warned; people will look, you'll get akward questions on the bus. but you'll look gorgeous so it'll all be worth it! ;)

Sheik-Chan said...

Good luck~ Sometimes it's hard keeping the blue in...but if you like the faded blue too, that's good :O

Can't wait to see iiittt!!!!!!!!

Katie said...

I LOVE the frosty blue.. I'm so excited to see how it turns out!
I think it will look amazing.

Comic_Cat said...

I am excited about how it will look on you and I gotta say that like being in school and stuff is the best way to try out new styles.
I've done that too, only it was gray-ish. :D
It'll go with your outfits!

nicc said...

I recently dyed my hair purple a couple of weeks ago, and from experience: be sure to follow washing instructions! I forgot to wash my hair with just cool/cold water and soon my hair began to stain EVERYTHING. Fingers, pillows, walls, tubs, faces, other peoples arms. Let's say my white shirts all are tinged purple.
Unless you've heard this story already haha.

I once dyed my hair purple in the 9th grade. That was an experience. It wasn't THAT noticeable until I walked into the sunlight during lunch break; the purple was vividly noticeable. People's jaws dropped.

Emily said...

oh my gosh the blue will look so fierce on you! ahhh i can't wait to see!!!


Caity180 said...

OMG heart Ghostworld. You have inspired me to see it again!

I had blue hair many times. I always loved it!
And kudos on Ghost World :D

Vinora Epp said...

you forgot someone in your list of people who make hair color look cool:
Franka Potente in Run Lola Run
such beautiful, awesome hair.
i am so excited to see how yours turns out!

Persephone said...

i don't think that the model in the first pictures' hair is blue. i think it's white and there is blue light shining on it.

Desiree said...

I love my blue hair but I'm getting bored of it. Time to go platinum!

E said...

love that editorial!


Miss Tami Lee said...

Hey Tavi, I don't know if you ever read the comments (I wouldn't, I'd get bored with so many people telling me how awesome I am) but I have a tip for you and the blue hair.

Once it's been dyed, use Sterling Silver shampoo by AG. It's a toner meant for old ladies and people like myself who want white hair. The shampoo is purple and whenever I use it too much it gives my hair a very light blue shimmer. Perfect for someone who wants light blue hair!

Brittany McCarthy said...

I'm sorry, but just from knowing your a fan of good cartoons....is the title of this blog a reference to fosters home for imaginary friends? youre going blue...so I had to ask.

Annie said...

When you first talked about dyeing your hair blue I immediately pictured Clementine in Eternal Sunshine, but I think that frosty blue would be incredible. I hope it works! If not the darker shade will be just as awesome.

my friend, skinny said...

o i love this, please put a photo up straight away - i like the katie shillingford one the best

georgeface said...

If you have to go for a brighter blue it might fade out to a frosty blue. I had dark blue, nearly black hair once and it faded into a greyish

Gun Street Girl said...

re: matching your hair to your outfit - I just recently did the opposite. For years I've been pink, red, green, orange, or purple, whatever suited my mood for a few months... and I never used to care about whether it matched what I wore or not, but suddenly I did and picking my outfits became so much more work. So, I went back to auburn.
I applaud your ambition to not be lazy dresser like me, and I am excited to see your FUTURE BLUE HAIRS. Oh, and I second whoever mentioned Sterling Silver. My old roommate used it when she wanted her hair to be a silvery white after she bleached it, and it added a lovely frosty touch.

to echo tornangel012, yes, i kind of loathe my "normal hair, please" job....tavi, congrats on taking the plunge into the blue (haha, clever phrasing, eh?)!

i've had fuschia pink hair, jet black/fire engine red combo, black/platinum combo....ah, i miss those days.

can't wait for your big reveal--you're going to look smashing, and i'm going to live vicariously thru you!

Tavi! You are an inspiration ... I've decided that one of my resolutions in 2010 will be to take more fashion risks (maybe no blue for me ... yet). I thank you.

If with blue you succeed in everything you imagined for yourself in an older post (not freaking that spiders you kill will reproduce and haunt you, going downstairs for your Nesquick-fix w/o imagining serial killers' face in the window, etc) then let me know, because you found THE cure for my problems, too:)

oh how great! i can't wait to see the blue, because currently it's only been done by models in shows or editorials and celebrities (although, at this point, you really kind of are one). i've been wanting some cotton candy pink in my hair, but unfortunately, it's dark brown and would require some treacherous bleaching first.
good luck!
