Cult Party Kei Winter Inspiration

One of the newest Japanese styles to me, along with Shironuri, that I’m completely and utterly head-over-heels in love with is Cult Party Kei. Not too dissimilar from the English style that was in fashion a few years back, ‘Shabby Chic’, Cult Party Kei is all about the layering! Put some lace on that and WHAM-BAM, you have a Cult Party influence. The layering is not just an aesthetic, in this chilly season, it’s very practical and will keep you snug and toasty even if Jack Frost is successfully punching everyone in the face. Common motifs are religious iconography, crosses in particular – RED crosses specially. You bangin’ if you have a red cross.

Cult Party Kei is really a floaty, mysterious, sweet way of dressing. I love it because you can throw a bit of goth into it and you still look very feminine rather than RARRRGH LOOK AT MY SKULLS. There’s also a slap-dash of Fairy Kei in there, and Shironuri makeup looks INCREDIBLE in CPK. It’s simple to start – white or cream base and then build, build, build! The idea is to create a whimsical image, like a fairytale.

So here’s a collection of my all-time favourite CPK inspiration specifically for winter – gotta bundle it up, BABY IT’S COOOOOOOLD OUTSIDE!

Dying my hair from blonde to LILAC!

I’ve wanted to go lilac for a while now – one of those mythical unicorn colours that just looks amazing, but is such a light shade that just thinking about how it would take to my hair would give me a migraine, and then I’d get distracted by shiny things and/or Christmas.

yes

So now that I’ve done it – and it worked – I can give you a step-by-step how I did it. I had to retouch my roots, and unfortunately I didn’t take photos of that process, but here’s a quick run-down:

Dying my roots to a light blonde

Products used: Jerome Russell Blonde Lightening Powder, Jerome Russell Cream Developer – Vol 40 (high vol, but means you can have it on for less time. If you have a sensitive scalp, use 30 vol or lower, and leave on for longer, but no longer than 90mins)

Here’s Heliely Hyde’s tutorial on root touch-up:

White-ish yellow roots? CHECK!

Dying my hair lilac!

Ok, so I foolishly didn’t take photos during the application process (and if I had I would have a purple iPhone instead of a white one as I was doing it all by myself) but to start, always ALWAYS ALWAYS put vaseline around your hair line, ears and back of your neck. You don’t want to look like your hair is melting over your face or that you got into a fight and they punched your hairline and ears. I used Crazy Color’s Lavender (BUY IT HERE). Apply all over your hair, you don’t need to prioritise any parts as you can leave this dye on as long as you want, and it won’t damage your hair, just make sure you work it right down the strands or you’ll have patchy locks.

Once you finish applying it all over – USE THE MAGIC CLING FILM! You’ll want to keep as much moisture in as possible so it acts like a conditioner. Also you can do normal things around the house without leaving purple paw prints everywhere. Plus you can pretend that you’re turning into a plastic monster and scare people in the house.

I developed it for a grand total of 20 mins. Any longer and it would have gone a very bright purple, and I wanted it to look more lilac. If you want the colour to be longer lasting, leave it on for a full hour, it will be brighter and more purple, but will fade over time to get the pastel lilac you want. HEY, MY HAIR’S CLEAN!

Aaaaaand dry! Hair always lightens when dry, and because I didn’t develop it for long, some of the hair is lighter than the rest, giving it some pinky tones. HAIR ACCIDENT WIN! Weird side effect – the dye didn’t take well to the newly bleached roots, so I now have silver roots. Once the hair settles down I’ll go over the roots to get them purple too, although I like the contrast. The dye wasn’t on my dreads long enough to change them, only a few took the purple in – but it made the rest silver!

Final product! Very happy with my lilac, although I’m a little skeptical as to how long it’s going to last, as I can’t use conditioner with my dreads. For all you non-dreaded people out there – put a little bit of your dye in your conditioner, it will top up the colour every time you wash your hair 🙂
