I vote purple, Cori! It's my favorite color If I get tired of the pink later this year/when it's longer, I'll do blurple again, but maybe not as dark as last time.
NK, I'm kind of a dark ash blond naturally (I still stick by being blond since I was platinum as a child, even if it's much darker now). Ombre is really big right now. I feel like you could probably make it happen if you've already got long roots showing anyway! Check with your HR dept about the hair Since I don't deal with clients, only other employees, they had no problem with my piercings or funky hair.
