I am getting bored with my hair. Spiky and red has been fun, and I may keep it going for a while, but I feel like doing something different for a little while.

One complicated option I am pondering, mostly inspired by people wondering what I'd look like with a beard - let my hair grow out for a couple months more, and grow in a beard. Then bleach it as pale as I'm willing to get it, and wear it that way for a week, give or take. Then go purple or blue for a weekend, and shave off the beard. When that is over, get it cut short again and dye black over the bright colour. The final result would be like what I have now, but black, but it'd be a long, overly complicated process to get there. The growing out of the hair is necessary, because my hair as I have it now is too short to really showcase a properly iridescent colour. I'd need to find a reason to have the funky coloured hair, and take a couple days off to enjoy it, so I'd likely wait for something weird and interesting to come up sometime between November and January, if I started now.

Because I love waffles, I have made a poll so that all may try to sway me in my indecision;

What should I do with my hair?

longer, blonder, bearder -> purple -> black
Just keep it the way it is
go black, never go back
go black, all the way down my back (i.e., long and black again)
shave it all off again
go back to natural brown


If you want to see me with various hair colours, look here, here or you can find more if you look hard enough.

*boohiss natural hair color* is about the extent of my opinion. That being said, I also don't know how stringent your work environment is. SO!

longer->blonder->bearder->RAINBOW EFFECT!->black beard (or daaarrk blue?) & bald, keeping beard?

Wherein the RAINBOW EFFECT! consists of 1) placing a rat in a maze to see which color it reaches first, 2) a true "rainbow effect" where you've got a crapload of colors going on in some kind of a pattern (which may require extensive dyeing assistance), or 3) picking whichever color appeals most to you.

I know someone who dyed his mohawk a full rainbow of colours for Pride last year - the pictures look fantastic.

As far ad dying my beard goes - that way lies madness. My moustache area won't take dye, so I end up with stained skin with light brown/blond/white bits sticking out (my facial hair comes in lighter than the hair on my head for some reason).

Work's pretty conservative - "natural" colours only (as in colours found in nature on peoples' heads) - which really means basically no manic panic colours, or "weird" effects.

I like this look:


but other than that all I can say is, DON"T shave it all off

    Should work wonderfully vegan - the only reason I went with lard over shortening is that neither of us on this trip are supposed to be eating soy, and soy oil was ingredient #1 on the vegetable…

    That looks great. The opposite of what I'm trying to do the next time I make bannock (gluten's fine, dairy isn't) but now I'm inspired.

    The trick is that it requires either an oven or an actual camp fire. We might be able to take it to the singing fire - one can make the packets up in advance, then rotate them through the irons.

    That fire-roasted sweet bannock sounds amazing. Is this a thing we could try at KG?

    I don't know about you, but this is all part of my general scheme to be someone my teenaged self would have thought was cool. Or maybe become Batman. Either is good.
