Wedding Hair
bouncingsquares
I'm getting married at the end of the month, and I'm going back and forth between doing my own hair or getting it done. I've been growing it out for two years just for the wedding, so I kind of want to have it down. I really really like this.



It seems kind of silly to pay someone $80 to do something so simple. I know how to do the waterfall braid, so that's not a problem. My question is about the curls. How do I achieve curls like this? (Sorry if that's a dumb question, but every time I've curled my hair with an iron, it has looked nothing like that...) And more importantly, how do I make them stay all day and night?

Also, my hair is about the length of her hair when it's straight. Since hers is curled, it's obviously a good bit longer than that straight. Do you think that will be a problem?

Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone, just thought I should let you all know about the changes to madradhair.

I am the new owner and maintainer for the community. For any of you that have the community on your friends list, you probably noticed the slew of spam popping up recently. That has been dealt with by LJ's abuse team and they handed ownership over to me.

The community as a whole will remain the same, but we will hopefully not have to deal with any more spam in the future! I have revamped the old layout and profile, feel free to check it out if you like.

Also, if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, I am all ears! Feel free to comment on this post or send me a message privately.

Lastly, if you have any good links to hair blogs/tumblrs, other active hair communities, hair tutorial sites, or anything else you think should be added to the "Links" section of the profile, please share them with me :)

hey guys, I'm getting pretty bored of having my black hair back {a decision to abandon all hope on maintaining a red color} and I'm wanting to revamp it. I've only ever bleached my hair twice, and babied it with deep conditioners, leave in sprays, you name it I've put it on my hair to get it back to health. But I need you guys to give me some advice! I'm also looking to get extensions by April, one the color my hair is going and another set to add in some extra color. 

from the last time I bleached it to now timeline:

 So. My hair is boring and always the same and I must change it. I've always wanted to go some sort of red. any red. it doesnt matter if it is more subtle or more bright, whatever would look best. I also am considering some sort of side bangs and possibly cutting it shorter. noooot sure yet. But please suggest anything :) pictures would be awesome too! So first is a pic of me with slightly shorter hair and second is a pic of me recently. The only pics I have taken lately are ones of me in cosplay for otakon XD

Hair color help.

Oh my goodness I haven't posted here in years!

I've decided to go to the salon to color my platinum blonde hair back to brown. I just didn't want to risk my hair turning green/orange/pink/etc etc. You get the idea.

However, I'm willing to risk my hair extensions since I have an old set that I didn't throw away yet. So I was wondering, what filler and hair dye would you guys recommend so I can achieve this redder color: I really like the idea of my hair extensions being a tad lighter than my hair since I'm going to try to achieve this girl's darker, more purpley-red color for my actual hair.

Thanks so much guys! I really hope someone will be able to answer my question.

 

EDIT:

how is the Ion Color brilliance from Sallys? For anyone that has used it, what color would to recommend to get the above (redder) color?


Red Orange Hair

I'm looking for hair dye I can buy in person that'll give me a deep, vibrant red orange color.
My hair is currently a medium faded coppery brown color. Bleeh.
I have access to drugstore box dye and what's at Sally Beauty.
I usually throw on some Special Effects Napalm Orange, but I'm out and they don't sell it in stores around here.
I can look at swatches, but I'm asking on here to see if anybody's had good experience with a particular brand / color.

Cut Advice?

Hey guys, i'm hoping to get a hair cut tomorrow, hoping to get some advice from you guys yet again!


my current hair

i like the way it looks right now alright, but my hair has this tendency to tangle and get messy within seconds after brushing once it gets this length or any longer. it's also stupidly flat, thin and boring.

Frizzyness and dull color...

I like my hair the way it naturally is... but it's been a little too frizzy and dull lately. Any natural/organic products I can use to make it more rich in color/smooth? I'd prefer suggestions of shampoo/conditioner/leave-in products.

temporary black
puppetair
How can I get my hair temporary black? I only need to black for three days and with the type of hairstyle, a wig is not an option.

Even temporary black dyes are more semi-permanent, so is there a type of spray on black? Most of the spray on colors always went on like a thick hairspray but I was wondering if there's a type that will still allow me to move my hair around.
Sorry for not being very specific. I've used some type of spray before that the color was very potent, but my hair texture didn't feel any different. Like I could still move and braid my hair around. I just can't remember the name.

Or worse comes to worse, I'll bite the bullet and go with a semi-permanent dye. Does anyone have suggestions on what one will last the shortest time?
