DON'T IT MAKE MY BROWN HAIR BLUE!!!

My darling daughter, Chloe, has been asking me for months and months if she can have her hair coloured, not just coloured but BLUE!. The first time she mentioned it I said 'ABSOLUTELY NOT, NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS', Chloe has very long curly hair and there was no way I was going to allow her to do anything to that gorgeous mane apart from the occasional trim.  So, over the months Chloe's persistent nagging has really tested my patience.  I then began thinking that maybe this is something that she really wanted to do as her desire to have her hair coloured has not waned at all over the months.  I was then struck by a horrifying thought, what if Chloe decided to get together with her friends and just buy some dye from the chemist and have a go at doing it herself.  With that in mind I decided that I would finally give in and allow her to have her hair coloured professionally to ensure the minimum damage possible to her lovely locks.  So after several lengthy consultations with the stylist and Chloe printing off what seemed like a hundred pictures off the internet, the appointment was booked.  Chloe was really excited, I was really nervous.  I was thinking what if it ruins her hair, what if she hates it once it is done, what if it isn't blue when it's finished etc etc.  Anyway, after 4 hours in the chair here is the end result, one absolutely delighted daughter and one very relieved mum.  Kids,don't ya just love em xxx

  4. She looks fantastic Jude, well done on being a 'cool' mum!
    I'm a trained hairdresser & my eldest son nagged me for a full year to get a Mohawk when he was 15. I finally gave in and agreed to do it & colour it fire engine red on the 1st day of the summer holidays. He was over the moon and I have to say it looked insanely fab. He's had various colours & styles since & amazingly as a trainee accountant his employers don't seem to mind. Last year for my sister's wedding he went back to a 6" Mohawk but cerise pink this time to match the bridesmaid dresses!!
    I think when your get the chance to express their individuality, it makes a huge difference to their confidence & helps them through that 'awkward' stage!!

  5. Kirsten you are a woman after my own heart. Your son sounds super cool and I'm so pleased that his employer's embrace his individuality. I totally agree that as teenagers they have enough to deal with, there is so much peer pressure for them to be lemmings and follow the crowd. I am proud that Chloe is not afraid of her individuality, I know she gets a lot of stick at school for being 'different' but she deals with it better than I ever could. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and a big hi 5 to your darling son xxx

  7. I'm glad you gave in, I had a blue mohican in high school and my mom was worried what the neighbours thought but my dad always helped me bleach it so I could have different colours.

    Your daughter sounds like a real gem and compared to what kids can get up to and worse I think having dyed hair is a walk in the park. Just remember that! :)

  10. Miss Jones, I'm really glad that I allowed her to have it done, it has made her really happy and that makes me happy. What I'm not looking forward to is the cost of the upkeep, apparently blue hair fades quicker than red so it will be a monthly trip to the salon I think xx

  11. Aww, I think all kids go through the crazy hair colour phase, I'd been blonde, red, black, blue and brunette by the time I was 18 lol!

  12. Your daughters cool... I wish I had been allowed to do those things as a teen, as it is it's taken till now.. (a lot later) for my fun side to come out.

  13. Sparkle-and-grey I too had been through a rainbow of hair colours by the time I was 18 so it seemed only fair to let her experiment too.

    Ms Red your hair looks fabulous, I was a red head for several years but I've toned it down a bit now, hair colour is such a fab way to express yourself.

    Thank you both for your lovely comments xx

  14. I agree it looks fab, and you're a cool mum to help her. I'm going to bear it in mind when my 2 daughters have strange requests!!

  15. Hi Steph, I think once you get over the shock of the request you soon realise that there are worse things they could be doing than dyeing their hair blue, I have already told her that there will be no piercings or tattoos though lol x

  17. Wow, that is cool. I wanted a blue streak in my hair last year. Saw an actress with the perfect colour on television but my hairdresser couldn't do it. I changed salons after that, but went back to being a brunette!
