My Ombre streak


I hope everyone has been well! It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve blogged but so much is happening, getting my room done up to make it suitable for my comics, books, film, music, action figures and my other collections (getting some shelves planned which is exciting.)

I’ve also been catching up with my comic and I’m way behind on the plan because things come up every now and then. I’m onto chapter two now, just finished the script and onto the art! More info coming soon.


I felt like I needed a change, just to feel a little bit on the wild side because I’ve been so busy and under a routine (ish) during the past few months, I decided to dye my hair. I had several ideas; sombre my hair from black to brown (a subtle ombre) or dye my whole head chocolate brown. I am a huge X-men fan, a long time ago before Emma Frost joined the X-men, Rogue was my favourite character! She has a white streak in her hair (for anyone who doesn’t know) and I wanted something like that so I thought… HOW A BOUT AN OMBRE STREAK! I decided that if I created a subtle change from my eyebrows, it would help frame my face a little. So I went ahead and used Jerome Russel, powder bleach. Fifteen minutes later I decided I didn’t want to do it anymore. I washed it off and it was TOO LATE! I ended up with a chocolatey brown, the images below shows an orange tint, I don’t think it captures the brown well but this is how it ended up.
