I'm glad that I endured growing out my roots for four months. The stylist bleached that untreated hair and, at my request, used Arctic Fox "Purple Rain" dye. She put black on the rest of my hair. The purple is lovely, and freshening the black made my hair look healthy and shiny. I am so pleased with the result!
I did a quick french braid, and I think it shows off the two colors nicely.
As always, my camera skews blue. The actual color is a true purple.
