Do you think my workmates will notice...

Last time I had my hair done, nobody at work even noticed, and I was a bit put out. I'm hoping this time it will be different.

My hair's been going seriously grey over the last couple of years. I have previously dyed it; I spent much of my twenties with my hair a variety of shades of red or auburn. I went out on the town with a mate a month or so ago and saw a chick with bright blue hair, and thought if I ever get the courage, that'd be awesome.

So, I'm turning 44 in a few weeks, and I'm working my way up to a proper mid life crisis. I don't have the dough to blow on a sports car, so the blue hair will have to do the trick.

The recipe I followed is two applications of 30 vol bleach, then paintbox "blue velvet". I'm not expecting it to stay vibrant for terribly long. Once it's faded I might try a purple, as that's traditional for women in engineering.

Edit: and after a fortnight, I went totally to town. Thanks Mary!

You'll be thrilled to know they did notice. I might have a blue rinse but there's no way I'm voting for the tories.

You're really taking the corporate branding thing serious, I'm a little disappointed the eyebrows don't match.
