As promised, here are some pictures of me with the new hair colour. It's gold "light golden brown" and I was very worried about doing the highlights myself. It proved very fiddly, but in the end I believe that made it look less structured and therefore more natural. Light streaks at regular intervals are a dead giveaway for a bad dye-job - unless it's meant ironically, of course. Unfortunately I'm rather pessimistic of most people's capacity for irony...
Now all I need is a haircut. I don't think I'm going for the do-it-yourself route on that.
Then I found a post by the marvellous Joe.My.God. about making a Shepard Fairey-like icon of your own picture, to look like the famous Barack Obama poster. Here's my effort, doesn't it make me look so much better than the original?
