After a little look at cool hair colours online, or one may say procrastinating, I discovered a photo of Ashley Olsen with gorgeous rose gold locks. I believe the image is photoshopped as there only seems to be one photo of her with the rose gold hue but I decided I wanted to try and recreate it somehow. I’m never really ruthless with my hair as I never want to ruin my blonde but I knew I wanted to try this peachy rosy look. I decided to try Bleach London Super Cool Colour semi-permanment dyes for this look and because the dye claims to only last 2-10 washes I thought I had nothing to lose, my blonde would appear again soon.
To create this look I decided to try Awkward Peach and Rose. Firstly, I followed the instructions on the back of the bottle which just says to shampoo your hair as normal, towel dry then apply the dye and leave for 15 minutes. Before I applied the dyes I mixed them in a small bowl, I mainly used Awkward Peach and just popped in a tiny splodge of Rose – and I must say the bottles are quite stiff so you have to give them a good squeeze. Once applied I combed it through and waited – whilst constantly checking in the mirror that my hair wasn’t bright orange! When I washed it all out and dried it I was quite happy with it! The dye did tend to cling on some streaks of my hair more than in other parts but after getting used to it throughout the day, and after a few compliments, I decided I liked it. However, I did think my hair was a lot more pink than peach. Since I decided I loved the result I decided the next time I washed my hair I would use Bleach London’s Rose shampoo and conditioner to keep it intact – however, this made it even more pink as opposed to peach but at least there was still colour in my hair. Come the next hair wash day I decided to try normal shampoo and conditioner which almost completely washed it out and by the next hair wash it had completely gone. My peachy pink hair only lasted 3 washes which was a shame but great if you want funky hair for the weekend! After about a month of being back to blonde this morning I decided to use the rest of Awkward Peach and it is virtually the same colour and definitely has a major pink tinge to it (on my hair anyway!) so if you want to recreate this look save yourself a fiver and don’t bother buying Rose. In my cupboard I have a similar colour dye from La Rich’e’s ‘Directions’ line and I may try that soon – hopefully it will last a little longer!
Bleach London do quite a few funky colours and you can get them from boots.com
