Washed Up Mermaid







  

 Day/Night

Top, Jacket, Jeans, sunglasses in hand: All Topshop (old)
Satchel, boots: Boohoo (old) 
Sunglasses: eBay 


So after trying out several of Bleach London's hair crayons; The Big Pink & Out Of The Blue I finally got around to applying Washed Up Mermaid. Not overly impactful yet reactive enough to get some ombre vibes going for the while. I haven't really tried blue-y green-y tones before and I think aqua is about as far as I'll reach to be honest. Definitely glad to switch up from the pink and purple though, and to try another ombre colour from the rainbow sky spectrum. 

Usually I rock a Kevin Murphy Colour Bug but they are so damn pricey (sometimes around £15 a go) so when I saw these back in Boots last summer I knew I had to give them a try. I prefer the chalks to BL's wash in, wash out dye. After experimenting with Rosè several years back and being disappointed with the very vague pink I'm not bothered about trying out another one. As for the crayons I most deff want to try out more colours someday. 


Have you tried out Bleach London? Would love to know your thoughts!

  8. I love how effortlessly you rock this look. You styled everything perfectly! And I wish that ombre and general coloured hair dying was easier for black hair...must be so fun to change up your hair on a whim.

    Sincerely,

  11. I have been to Bleach- it's such a neat place! Also, I love that you named this post mermaid, because hair this color always reminds me of that movie aquamarine where she's a mermaid! xx

  12. Your mermaid inspired hair looks really pretty! I've been wanting to try the Kevin Murphy Color Bug and you're right that they're kinda pricey.

  27. I love the hair colour, I bet its always so nice to switch up the colour of your hair now and again, whereas I'm stuck with black all the while. Any hair dye just wouldn't show up on my black hair without bleaching it and I really don't want to bleach it! You're lucky :P Love this outfit so much, especially the top and shoes! Black is my all time fave colour that I can throw on any time of the year and it will look good ^_^

    1. Thank you so much Yaz! Glad you love the look ;) It definitely is fun, I must say. One of the benefits of being blonde I never knew existed until I discovered Kevin Murphy haha. I love black, it really makes an outfit so wearable yet can be so stylish and laid-back too. The perfect saviour <3
