Coloured hair

So after the disastrous idea to dip dye my hair 'teal' (here) I decided to dip dye my ends purple. Annoyingly, the purple washed out really quickly so I asked a friend of mine to try and dye it two colours. One colour was beginning to bore me anyway. It gradually went from bright pink to purple, it looked alright I suppose but then anythings an improvement from the teal!

SO...the purple, once again, washed out really quick so I was left with a pink layer then a blonde-ish colour at the bottom. I purchased some 'atlantic blue' hair dye (here) and decided to go over the ends but leave a bit of pink. I haven't really taken a 'proper' photo yet as I'm unsure whether I like it.

I also have hair envy of Charlotte Free (here) Not necessarily because it's amazing, but because she gets away with it.

Final thing, two birds one stone!

Rico Genest

Well it gets the point across. 'You've got tattoos>you need/want to hide them > buy Dermablend.' Personally I think he looks better with the tattoos, but that might be because I'm used to seeing him in magazines with them (etc...)

Andrew Charles

I may bit a bit biased because I'm a fan of Steven Tyler, but I can't help liking the women's section of Andrew Charles (especially the shoes). Gutted that it's only based in Macy's.

The range (put together by Andy Hilfiger and Steven himself) was obviously based on Tyler's fashion sense with clear influences from Rock n Roll.

Also, I think Chelsea Tyler impresses me almost as much as Zoe Kravitz, their bohemian/rock style makes me too envious.

Tyler Shields

Okay, so I've decided that I'm in love with Tyler Shields' work. Usually I find high contrast photographs irritating because I never think this effect works. I find it too overpowering. However, Shields seems to have used contrasting in a way that compliments his images and surprisingly no detail is lost. There is still so much definition within each photograph.

Mischa Barton

Lindsay Lohan

Andrej Pejic

You think of Pejic and you think of androgynous. I don't see why this is still the main focus? Move on. If we're going to be finicky we should probably mention

Tilda Swinton.

Whose androgyny has been played upon for years and is probably the most prominent in the film Constantine in which she plays the angel Gabriel. The point is, it's getting boring.

To speak of it and not may as well stay silent

To speak of it and not may as well stay silent  #1 by Amundah.

(Or words to that effect which imply that most people talk about equality and peace yet take no action.) Check out Vinspired. It's a good place to start.

Anyway, I realised I haven't done any photography for almost a year! The above self portrait got me thinking, and I decided to take some photographs based on this idea. They're kind of cheesey but who doesn't like cheese once in a while?!

Oh, and home made tie dye! :)
