Rainbow Hair

I follow a few tattoo/body-mod blogs here on Tumblr and often I see pictures like this one:

Don’t get me wrong, this is cool and certainly pretty, but have you ever seen someone do this in real life? It all goes to shit ~24 hours after you dye it. All the colors blend like when you did finger paints in kindergarten and smooshed all the colors together.

I was standing in line at the grocery store the other day and I saw a girl who was post rainbow dye job. With all the colors run together her hair was an amalgamation of brusey purples, poo browns, and snot greens punctuated by strands of highlighter yellows and greens. She looked like the female version of the Joker, minus the white face paint and mouth scars.

I’m all for artistic expression and cool dye jobs, but just know what you’re getting into before you try and recreate your favorite Tumblr photos ladies—unless you enjoy looking like a cartoon character.
