WIW with rainbow hair

Like many of you, I grew out my hair during the pandemic. I don’t mind the grey most days, but I got tired of the length. However, I went to see my stylist, and she loved the length and didn’t want to cut it! So in an attempt to feel sassy, I asked for a blue stripe “peekaboo style” instead and she agreed.

I don’t normally plan my outfit around my hair, but during my closet edit, I loved the way this white and blue floral looked with my blue hair, and had to try wearing it! Here’s the results - I think the outfit turned out kinda meh (should I have tucked the shirt?). But I do still like the stripe in my hair

And umm, I must have tried a dozen times to get a picture of the side of my face! They all look weird to me! I suspect my own impression of how my face looks is rather far off...!

    Love blue hair - very nice look and goes well with a printed top!

    How fun is that! Semi tuck would look good too but looks great as is! Great peek a blue!

    You know I love it!! I live vicariously because my hair won’t go blue!

    LOVE the rainbow hair - it looks so cool and fabulous with your blue top. Taking selfies is the worst, I can only manage front on selfies at the best of times.

    Love the blue stripe ... Looks great, and works so well with the half up half down hairstyle.

    Love the stripe!

    A stripe is a great way to spice up a winter day!  It gives a little peek of fun. Your instinct about the floral is great. In the first pic, it looks like you're wearing a leather or faux leather jacket. What about swapping that for the sweater?  I think the floaty cardi works with the floaty top, too, of course, but the juxtaposition of structure and edge to floral floral would be a nice contrast.

    I'm sporting longer hair now, too. I think a lot of us are starting to get a itch to try something different. I remember your short cuts well, and you looked great with them, too!

    Cute blue streaks! Fun when it picks up the blue in your outfit.

    Yay from me for blue streaks and pretty blouse!

    Excellent blue touches to catch 'em off guard!

    Fun blue hair, and I like the length, too. Your outfit is also nice, and I like the flow of the blouse without tucking. You still have a long leg-line, even without tucking.

    Cute peekaboo and I agree with the stylist that the length suits you. I also really like your frames!
    I think the brown cardi, while also matching your hair, is muting the impact of the blue shirt. And I generally prefer that type of slouchy open cardi with a skinnier pant.

    Now I want a peekaboo streak! Hairdressers still closed - would it be wise to diy..??

  • Tanya replied 1 year ago

    What a lovely blue streak!  It looks especially nice when you wear something with blue in it, like your top.

    It is a vivid blue  Very Pretty  It must look beautiful in real life.

    Thanks for posting—I’ve toyed with the idea of peekaboo rainbow hair for a long time, but have only seen it in photo shoots with stylists, hair dressers, muas, and all the other pros involved. It looks great on you irl!

    Great idea--and fun to do something to spice up our current dilemma in a good way.
