    a hat?


    bright coloured hair will fade pretty quickly. shampoo is twice every time you're in the shower and it'll fade faster.

    if you like it, but just can't find owt that matches, try black and denim.

    make-up wise, with bright hair you need stronger make up, or your face will look washed out. try dark eyeliners.

    How did you accidentally dye it?

    Bright red. I bet browns in the eyshadow region would go, with black clothes, or really bright clothes if you're daring enough, like turquoise or pink. Not sure about the orange like.

    my pink hair is now a pale pastel colour after about 2 weeks.


    shampoo is the key. get one of the extra cleansing ones if you can, definitely not anything for coloured hair, cause they'll preserve it for longer.

    head and shoulders shampoo fades hair really quickly, so does baby shampoo.
    theyve both got stuff in to lighten hair.
