My stylist Dani used chill* ed stain hair dyes in purple and silver mixer/toner.
Firstly, this is me (taking awkward salon selfies) after a scalp bleach and about a gallon of toner. The silvery ash-blonde I'd had for the previous fortnight had faded to a more conventional warm blonde (despite vigorous application of Touch of Silver shampoo), so it was great to shift back to something a little more elfin. This is the lightest my hair has EVER been; I love it. Dani assures me that as the lilac fades out it should return to something like this. No complaints!
Then we had the application of purple dye and yet more toner. My favourite thing about this colour is that different tones show up in different light.

I am crazy about this hair. <3 I feel like a cartoon character! The colour should last ten to twenty washes but I'm going to try washing in cold water to eke it out as long as possible (and I'm thinking about buying a tub of Directions Lilac dye to top up at home). I've already arranged with Dani that when it finally does fade, pink's next. :)
