    How does it work now? Can we heal a show that has 25 points?

    Yeah, thanks! Well, in my case, part of it's also due to actually enjoying it, hairdressing. I've also cut and colored other's people's hair (highlights and semi-permanent dyes). But....everyone commits mistakes. I mean, a good professional hairdresser knows exactly how to lighten the hair (whenever is possible and the difference of shades to lighten is not very big) without actually bleaching the hair. Or, either, dyeing it just when one has bleached it and achieved an orange/yellowish color, just before going too blond. They know which shades to use exactly when it looks this way, and how to counteract undesired undertones. Since I'm not very good at it (it's not as simple as using the color wheel, one needs a little bit of practice and/or professional training), I always bleach first. That's why when I needed products to take care of the hair. So well, even with that on mind, I committed a huge mistake once, one of the first times I tried experimenting being "a hairdresser". I wanted to experiment with a metallic dark blond shade for my highlights. So I decided I'd just bleach a strand of hair o try this out. Once bleached, I dyed it but for some reason the result had orange undertones. I thought the shade was kind of ashy, but I had misunderstood the numbers of the reflects completely. SO....then, obviously not liking the result, I bleached it again (otherwise I should have used blue dyes and this stuff.) A process which is, obviously, extremely damaging. Then I dyed it with a shade which was pure "light brown" to return to my normal self, which is medium brown. (I might mention that in hairdressing the "real" colors are one or two shades lighter than the average person's perception of that color). What was my surprise when the result was black. Well, after bleaching twice, one doesn't know anymore with what is she working with. That's why good hairdressers also take into account the health of the hair when doing their job. I had it this way a couple of days and since it didn't vanish at all, I bleached it again for a third time. Needless to say that my strand became chewing gum in my fingers. I was thinking of doing my highlights again this summer when I cut my hair, but it's been so long that I fear screwing it up or something. Then again, I'm cosplaying for a manga con this Fall and my character has black hair so I'm not sure how I'd cover the highlights then. I don't even know if I'll dye my hair black or what. With make-up, I used to be good at it, smokey eye's look and this stuff, but now I just use eyeliner or kohls, since I don't remember the tutorials I used to follow.... I've never been good doing my nails, I might occasionally paint them blue or coral once or twice a year, but I'm very bad at doing them.

    I had a similar problem when I used to go to the hairdresser for highlights. They never got the ash blond I wanted. That's why I decided to learn for myself, and I used a bleach with blue pigments to counteract the brassy/orange undertones that appear when one is bleaching brown hair and removing the pigments. I bleached them to light blond and then just dyed with the desired ashy tone with low volumes of peroxide just for some minutes. Of course, bleaching and dyeing instead of just dyeing leads to damaging the hair, but with this bleach, Olaplex and a spray for damaged hair after the shower I managed to maintain it quite healthy. But it's been two years since I don't do a single highlight to my hair.

    I like hairdressing and doing things to my hair, but I've never done anything very radical. I've dyed myself from brunette to blonde in the past with different levels of highlights (not all the hair), but that's the most extravagant thing I've done. Well, apart from occasionally colouring some strands in blue or purple. But these don't last much. The rest I'm so lazy that I don't even go to cut my hair, xd. Since I'm only capable of cutting myself the front part, that is. This summer I had to cut one year of growing up. So from quite long to barely shoulder length. Too bad it grows so fast...

    Ah yes, I thought she was still sporting platinum hair. I also think her natural hair looks better; but changing colour from time to time to more doesn't hurt.

    Here is the pic of all the cast. Gwen and Nik in yellowish colours. I think they did it on purpose. And Isaac https://www.cnbc.com/2018/09/18/how-much-an-episode-of-emmy-winner-game-of-thrones-costs-to-produce.html Emilia darkened her hair again.

    If GOT had to win something in the non-technical categories...it should have been Nik. At least he does his best with the script he has. He was so handsome yesterday there... I better refrain myself from telling what I think about best drama for s7.

    First day of Master: checked. Oh, I'm soo tired. Google translate is funny. In Spanish, there are some funny translatons as well from English, due to some words having multiple words in the latter. For instance, if you're talking about a girl over 13 years old, it would also translate it to "niña", which is the equivalent of girl as little girl. So imagne you're talking about a group of girls that are young women. It also translates many things in a very formal way. And automatic translations from google, from newspapers, are also very funny, sometimes. Conclusion: never rely on google translate unless you're desperated or know nothing in that language For fun: https://www.babbel.com/en/magazine/15-best-google-translate-fails/
