One of the downsides of having short hair is that the style is the style... there isn't much you can do with it. At best if I let it grow a bit long I can spike it up, but that only lasts for a week or so before I get it cut again.
The one thing I can do, and have been doing a lot, is change the colour. It started out with just dying the bangs different colours, but lately I've been doing the whole thing! People often worry that I am ruining my hair with all the chemicals, but then I remind them that I shave it off every 6-8 weeks anyway, so it's really always new, untreated hair that I'm dealing with.
The whole head colouring started on a whim to dye my hair blue for the BlueNose! Then I switched it up to purple to match the Sole Sisters race. Now that I don't have any races on the books until September, I'm just having fun, changing it up every couple of weeks. My favorite so far was a complete accident that ended up with a yellow and red "fire" look.
I've stuck mainly on the pink-purple-blue colour wheel. Yellow is pretty shocking, but very spring-like. Currently I'm playing around with green. I have a work trip planned in a couple of weeks, so I'll have to figure out what is the best work appropriate colour!
