I already got to ask Ash a whole bunch of my own questions when I interviewed her at Warped Tour in June, but I learned some new things from the twitterview like that she dyes her hair with Manic Panic’s “Raven” black and “Electric Lava” orange dyes and uses their “Vampyre’s Veil” compact. She’s also a fan of Urban Decay’s “Oil Slick” black eyeshadow.
Recently Ash has been talking about dying her hair a silvery white and posted inspiration photos on her tumblr, but she’s concerned about damaging her hair, which is naturally black. “It took me forever to grow it this long, I’d die if I wrecked it. We’ll see!,” she writes. Should she do it? I think it would look great on her with heavy black eyeshadow and red lips, but the damage is a legitimate concern, especially once she decides to change back to another color. Hair dye tends not to hold properly on hair once it’s been bleached, and I can tell you that from “why is this pink? It’s supposed to be red!” experience. I’m glad that mess is grown out!
