Over the years, I’ve done a plethora of crazy crayola colors, both as highlights and all-over color: blue, magenta, orange, burgundy, and purple to name a few. You may have seen my first and second attempts at oil slick hair. Right now I’m rocking my natural black with purple and blue ombre. I don’t feel like myself, unless my hair is some crazy color.
