No, it's not a wig - I've FINALLY gone lilac!!! Thanks to Denise for recommending Jennifer @ Cusp Hair Salon, Argyle Street, Glasgow.
Jen spent 2 hours bleaching the ginger out, followed by two applications of the purple (a mixture of Fudge Paintbox Purple Haze and Crazy Colour Violette. There was still some ginger that refused to budge so we had to put a slightly darker shade of purple on top than I had been hoping for (top pick), but, after a few days of washing, the results are perfect! That's a photo of me at work on Saturday:
Can't wait until I finally feel well enough to rock my new 'do in public. This lurgy is still hovering around my sinuses and settling in my chest - nasty! I've also been experimenting with Instagram recently. Find me here @baroque_boudoir and follow me so I can follow you back ;-)
