I need help about my hair on Gay Pride 2010, My last day In this country...

Asked by nailpolishfanatic (6612points) July 31st, 2010

This year’s Gay Pride I want to color my afro, rainbow colors (not really coloring it but just spraying some colors in it that I could be with the entire day and wash it off) also has to be cheap. I am not a Lesbian (I have nothing against them), but I just want this year to rock, I want to show haters in their face that I don’t care if I am lesbian or normal sexual….( (heterasexual) I think). When I was in the 7th and 10th grade 2 different schools, people were always saying that I was a lesbian. Now I just want to support The Gay Pride Parade and just have fun showing people that I don’t care what they think of me.

@Seek_Kolinahr , ahh oops, the question is basically, how can I spray my hair..
What do you recommend me using that is cheap and I can wash it off at the end of the day.

You could try a novelty type shop. They usually sell hairspray in really fun colours. They’ll wash out straight away too. Have fun :)

hot topic usually has cheap stuff like that. I rarely shop there, but I know there are a lot of hot topics all over the us. where is this gay pride parade? SF?

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Carly , unfortunately it’s in Iceland we don’t have Hot Topic:/

Seek's avatar

Here’s some spray in colour from Sally website. You can order online. Might try the same brand on Amazon.com if shipping is too much?

Carly's avatar

oo, wow. Well!! If you have time to buy something online, I would do that asap.

I don’t think I have enough time, gay pride is on the 6–8:/

Is that August 6th? We in the US would read it as June 8.

Can you get food coloring in a supermarket.? It is used to color frosting, for example. It might work as a temp. hair color, but I am guessing.

Fly's avatar

Party supply shops such as Party City generally carry wash-out spray hair dye. That’s an American store but I’m guessing that there is something similar in Iceland.

rangerr's avatar

@gailcalled Food coloring stains hair.

Stores like Wal*Mart and Target I have no idea what stores are in Iceland… have the colored hair spray too. Check out the party section.

Seek's avatar

nods Food colouring binds to proteins, so it would be the same effect as colouring your hair with Kool-aid. Semi permanent on my blonde hair, and non-existent on her black hair.

gailcalled's avatar

Good to know about food coloring. Thanks. I, myself, wouldn’t eat blue or green frosting either.

Are there costume shops near your home? They always sell the hair color that can be sprayed in and washed back out. I would avoid light colors (like yellow), I suspect they may not show very well on your hair with it being so dark.

Why not have a reasonable and practical haircut that shows that supporters of homosexual culture can conservative and levelheaded, even during celebrations.

Fuck it. Go swan. If you can’t make your hair look like a large bird, you’ve failed.

Judging by your picture, you may not have enough hair for that. . . Maybe your hair could be the nest. I’m just getting a vibe from this bird idea. lol. Maybe you should just paint it like a rainbow.

augustlan's avatar

How about using rainbow colored ribbons, braided into your hair?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Ohh! @augustlan that is so creative and smart. What a brilliant idea. Heck yes.

Kayak8's avatar

Offended by the “normal sexual” reference coming from someone who wants to make a statement at pride . . . not entirely sure what kind of statement you think you are making . . .

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

@Kayak8 English is not her primary language, so cut some slack. Maybe you should try discussing this in Icelandic.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@augustlan , but I want to have afro:D

@Espiritus_Corvus , thank you!

Kayak8's avatar

@Espiritus_Corvus Just sayin’ as a lesbian, I find the reference offensive.

zophu's avatar

@Kayak8 Sorry, we didn’t see your badge. sorry, not trying to start a fight, just can’t resist. i guess it should have been worded better.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Kayak8 , oh sorry about that, but I don’t feel like it is something to be offended about…
Sorry though

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@RareDenver , cool!! The ICELANDIC ONE is after 7 days:):):):) I can’t wait!
