Having long hair was a goal of mine for many years. I wanted it long like a princess! But in reality I almost always wore up in a ponytail to get it out of my face. The length also made it more difficult for me to color it. So I've been toying with the idea to go back short. One night after I washed it I grabbed the scissors and just cut the tail off. My philosophy on this was if I "ruin" the length then I'll *have* to cut it short! No turning back! I am SO glad I did it. It feels so much better to have it short and thinned out now. It's also so easy to wear wigs for my cosplays. And the best part was it cut my drying time in half! I'm pretty happy with pink right now, but I want to experiment with more colors soon. :)
I cut it all myself but I don't recommend trying this at home! I have been doing my own hair for over 10 years.
And here's a picture of the color I used. It's RAW's Fuschia Fatale mixed with a lot of conditioner to lighten it some. I let it sit for an hour or so on my head then rinse with cool water! :)
