My Name is Blonde. James Blonde.

Okay, forget about the cheesy title. Christmas is just a day away and it won’t be long for New Year’s to pass our lives as well.

Like a lot of people say: “New year=New life.” I thought that it would be interesting to change how my hair looks just before year 2016 arrives. No, I’m not changing it in terms of the length. I am changing its color. That’s right folks. I bleached my dark hair into a beaming blonde.

Here is a photo of me with my old hair. Now, compare it with my bleached hair.


I used a bleaching powder mixed with 12% developer. Made sure that the mixture is creamy and not grainy nor fluid. After I applied it, I then left it on my hair for 10 minutes before rinsing. The first wash won’t get you the desired result right away especially if your hair is as dark as mine. I ended up doing 4 repeats of the process just to get the results of the above picture.

I am planning on doing an ombre look using a pink hair dye. I don’t know yet. Maybe I could get you an update soon. I just hope I won’t be lazy to do it.

I think that’s it for now. I hope you’re enjoying your holidays as much as I do. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Even if you fail, it would still teach you a lesson. Merry Christmas!

  1. I love both looks. I’ve been blonde, brunette, and every color in between — not to mention some totally off the wall unnatural colors. Sometimes you just need a change! — I think the pink ombre will be gorgeous, so be sure to share the results with us!! One thing I would suggest, though, is make sure to put a good toner in your hair prior to trying to add pink. With a lot of “brassy”-ness in your hair, you run the risk of the pink going a bit too far and turning orange. — Just my two cents as someone who has had platinum blonde, white, and pink hair before! 🙂


  2. You’re beautiful either way! I’m too chicken to change up my hair… haven’t died it in 10 years. I have this vision of putting dye on it and it falling out in chunks! Ridiculous, I know.


  3. Wow, I love the new look! You look great both ways though 😉 I have dark hair and have always wanted to go lighter but I’m a scaredy cat, lol!


    • Hello Joscelyn! If there is something you really wanted to do, don’t be scared and just do it. Get out of your comfort zone. I was scared at first too but I thought that my hair would just grow. If I don’t like the result, I could just color it back to black. haha
