Dying my hair purple in my college dorm room.

That one time in college I dyed my hair purple…

One time in college I dyed my hair purple. I dyed it in my college dorm bathroom with a tub of Manic Panic. Afterwards, I had to scrub a lot of dye out of the sink. I imagine to this day you can still find my purple traces.

I dyed my hair all kinds of colors in college: purple, green, orange, magenta. Though, I never got around to pink.

I don’t remember why I started. Was it to look cooler than I was? Was it a suppressed My So Called Life dye your hair and change your life moment? Was it just because it sounded fun? I don’t know.

And I guess it did make me look cooler than I was. Or, at least, more confident. You can’t have purple hair and not be confident.


And, while I’m not sure whether dying my hair purple changed my life it certainly was a catalyst for a life of trying new things and doing the things I want to do.

And it definitely was fun. Except for, you know, having to scrub all that extra dye stains out of my my dorm bathroom sinks.

    Walter – damn straight!
    Heather – I so had green hair for a bit junior year of college, but I wasn’t awesome enough to have it in high school.
    Jeff – I told you it was purple!
    Lindsay – ideally I would bleach my hair and dye it a light pink
    Sid – Yes, it’s a dorm room. These were taken 6 or so years ago.
