Nice n' Easy was the first brand of permanent home dye I tried. After a few attempts with semi-permanent brown too close in shade to my natural colour, back in my late teens, I wanted the grungey glamour of dark locks. My hairspiration was Alison Mosshart, that incredible lead singer who just oozes sex appeal on and off stage. I wanted it long, thick, with a fringe, and a little bit dirty. I can't remember what the shade colour it was, but man, I was dark.
Next, when I started at university, I got it all lopped off post-travels and dyed what I like to call "sainsburys carrier bag orange". I loved being so bright, and of course being a similar shade to a certain heroine of mine! It was a total impulse decision which I adored at the time, but as my hair grew, so did the commitment to keep up with the roots.
Hence a successful afternoon with Colour B4, and then subsequent home dye sessions with hairdresser pal Hannah. I've now got movie star hair thanks to Barrie Stephen, but it was certainly thanks to that foam hair dye for inspiring me with colour in the first place.
Have you experimented with colour? What has been your favourite over the years?
