This is my burning man hat. It is painted using fabric dyes.

I've had long, dark brown hair for for some years now. I feel like it might be time for something new.

Jaunty hat! Nice hair!!
Just dye a stripe of it.

sunspiral has that market cornered. :-P

I say shave it off. not bald shave, but shortness.

unless you want to keep rocking the genderly ambiguosity geek-a-magigness. Then just keep rocking.

Tho I remember the color being darker at firefly... you mght wish to dye is a color closer to this photo. Its a good color.

I have no doubt that I will have fun with silver/white hair when I have it. :) At least until then, I'm more likely to be in the red-orange-yellow market segment anyway. :)

I say that if you do cut it shorter, rather than donating it, you should make it into an art project. Last time I researched the issue, I came away with the impression that donated hair generally does not end up getting used.

An excellent suggestion, I say. :)

I have a braid of hair from several years back, which I'd considered doing that with. I just lack the skills, time. But some of those designs gave me ideas. Perhaps something fairly simple under glass...

dye a few curls (bleach first, or the color won't show on your dark hair).

wait 'til it's warmer

then crop it shorter.

more importantly: it's your hair. what do YOU want to do (or are you indecisive?)

I don't have a strong preference at the moment, so I'm seeing if my friends do. :) Thanks! *hugs* :)

Let it get even longer! <333

I voted for lots of things, because I’m greedy and I always want it all, but my first choice, if it were my choice to make, would be for you to bleach and dye just the ends. Maybe several different colours.
23rd-Jan-2008 04:56 am (UTC)
*grin* That is very likely what I will do.
22nd-Jan-2008 09:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, you should certainly not cut it --it is too damn pretty for that.

Dyeing it bright colours might be fun. Post pictures, if you do!

Also, how do you know shuttergal? I haven't seen her in a right age (I was at college the last time she visited the house) but she's very much one of mums friends.

*hugs* :) I don't know that I've ever met her; I just find her journal interesting.
23rd-Jan-2008 05:31 am (UTC)
Ah, that makes sense. It just threw me for a loop --she's not someone I immediately associate with the Fandom, if only because she's been on the west coast for the past six or eight years or something.

Is that the same way you know dan4th?

~Sor
23rd-Jan-2008 07:45 pm (UTC)
Nope. :) dan4th totally goes to some of the same parties I go to. And he makes tasty waffles. :)
23rd-Jan-2008 08:52 pm (UTC)
Hee, awesome! I found him randomly on the interwobs, and have yet to meet him, even though he apparently lives across the street from me.

Personally I'd go for a not 'bright color' but with you skin tone a deep cherry color would be loverly.
23rd-Jan-2008 05:51 am (UTC)
...Oooo. Seconded!

So many men I've seen with long hair should not have it long. You are not one of them! Your long hair is lovely, if I had control of your hair I would keep it long and dye a few locks bright colors. That said, I know long hair can get tiresome and I understand the desire to cut it.
