At ten years of age I had a skin head with just a fringe remaining. I looked like a thug.
I decided to dye my hair damson. Some geez did it for me. He said the packet said leave it in for two hours but it was shabbly cuz it should have been 10 minutes! Still it didn't really take apart from when I was under lights and it was like a purple beacon. Like a fucking Ribenaberry.
Some odd colours though, blue probably being the worst because it sort of went green and bleach blonde in different places.
and venetian blinds
Bleached then dyed bright red. Went salmon coloured over the months. My grandad disapproved.
except no-one contemporary was doing it and I did my own with a set of beard trimmers in the bathroom mirror. Circa 2006/7. It was quite a severe contrast from sides to top. More of a mohican/quiff cross I suppose.
It was fucking heinous.
and how it was the most popular thing in the world about ten years ago
