The Blue Hair

Posted a survey to see what color my hair should be dyed, and here were the results:

GREEN: 62 votes
BLUE: 45 votes
RED: 43 votes

Sooooo….I should be dying my hair GREEN right?

WRONG!

You see, a day before getting my hair done, I came to the VERY obvious conclusion that I DO GREEN SCREEN VIDEO ALL THE TIME!
For example, THIS video screenshot was filmed on a green screen and digitally replaced with a background image:

Obviously dying my hair green will pretty much NOT allow me to do green screen videos without them looking all jacked up, so I went with the runner-up….BLUE!

Here’s the quick photo-journey of it turning from BLACK to BLUE:

DAMN THAT’S SOME BLUE HAIR!

But I’m calling this color “Chameleon Blue” because the color constantly changes depending on the light.

For example, in the pictures above, I’m in the sunlight which makes the hair REAALLLLYYY BLUE.

But inside, you can almost miss the blue, like this picture I took while making this post:

Also the blue KEEPS ON CHANGING everyday!  Every time I take a shower blue literally POURS out of my hair (apparently this is supposed to happen for about a week).

Here are some unexpected results of this weird hair color thing:

  • Homeless people are starting to recognize me.
  • I can’t take a shower without worrying about staining the shower blue.
  • I can’t go into the pool or hottub without a huge trail of blue following my head.
  • I can’t sleep on white pillows.

Anyhow….thanks for voting on the new hair color.  I’m sure this will make me look insane and lose all credibility in any new product I put out :-)

So after a few weeks, the hair keeps changing color because the blue fades with every shower.  NOW my hair isn’t blue at all, it’s like this GRAY color!

It actually looks like I have a full head of gray hair, NOT blue!

In the sunlight you can still sort of tell there’s hints of blue:

Although now my hair just looks weird.  Look at this screenshot from an upcoming video I shot on green-screen…..you can see how odd the hair looks:

….not so cool eh :-/

 

ANYHOW……every time I get my hair made some weird color it always goes through phases.  While the awkward faded-blue-green-yellow stage lasted longer than I’d like, it’s now fading into a browish/yellow color which doesn’t look all that bad.

It’s part of the fun to watch the hair change everyday :-)
