Stepho- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red, Pimpin Purple, Candy Apple Red

I used all three separately with Pimpin' Purple on the bangs.
My hair was black, but I bleached it to dark blonde, waited a week and dyed it.
In the pics it was freshly dyed. It tends to wash out quick since I have to wash my hair daily, and even though I do the color last about 3 weeks true.

The colour I used from Special Effects is Pimpin Purple. My original colour was half dark brown and Half Blonde. I had to belach the brown side of my hair to get the pimpin purple in. Its been about 2 weeks since I dyed it.

Teapot- Hair Dyes used: Special Effects Pimpin Purple, Burgundy Wine

I used Special Effects Pimpin' Purple and Burgundy Wine over bleached to blond hair. First I did lots of tiny strands in each color and then I did chunks the next time. I like the small bits better, but I'm not sold on the wine color. I'm used to purple I guess. It washes to a nice hot pink, but it runs like no other color I've had. The purple stays put really well and looks just as vibrant after each wash. Definitely sticking with Pimpin' for a while!
First pic is the next day with small streaks, the other pictures are with chunks of color. I apply the colors regularly to keep them vibrant, the washes don't look so hot. You can see how streaky the burgundy looks in the flash while the purple stays true in any light. I think if I were to do the burgundy wine again I'd do it by itself. Seems like a good stand alone color.

Nikie- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Pimpin Purple, Special Effects Wildflower, Manic Panic Rock n Roll Red

My hair is naturally dark brown.
#1 and #2: Special Effects, Pimpin' Purple. I bleached it after using Manic Panic's Rock and Roll Red. Because of the remaining pink tinge, the Pimpin' Purple left some bright pink bits. The first picture is what I looked like about a week after dying it. The second picture is about a month after dying it. It faded into a very rich pink.

#3: bleached out the Pimpin' Purple and got a highlighter-pink effect. #4 and #5: Dyed over the highlighter-bleach pink with Special Effects Wild Flower. #4 is a few days after dying, #5 is about a month after dying. It sort of turned silver.

Colby- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Virgin Rose, Sonic Green, Pimpin Purple

I bring the dyes into a salon. My hair is naturally the dark brown color so my hairdresser bleaches it to a light brown so that it doesn't kill it. (the colors still work even if it's not white blonde, they just come out darker and not as showy. I can't bleach my hair for long or else it dies.) She then applies the colors using foils and sits me under a dryer for about 15-20 minutes. I have used so many brands and nothing has worked and lasted like Special Effects. The first picture is about 2 months after dying. ) The second picture is about 3 months after dying, and the third is the day of dying. I have found the teal lasts the least long, but does not fade to an ugly shade. The roots continue to stay teal while the ends fade. Pimpin' purple lasted a few washes until the virgin rose bled together with it and it all became a pinky-purple. I think pimpin' purple would be great by itself, though. The virgin rose lasts the best, which is odd considering it is a pink. It just keeps getting more magenta and brighter with each wash but never seems to fade, I don't get it. I have since switched to fish bowl and deep purple. The fish bowl is a more true teal if you're looking for an aqua color, while the sonic green is obviously more green. Deep purple fades to an even better color than when it's first dyed; it just gets more brilliant and violet with each wash. I kind of wish it didn't turn out so dark in the beginning because by the time it fades to the awesome violet, I am redying it. Your site helps immensely with all of the pictures, I would never be able to choose just by explanation. Great prices, too. Thanks, funkyshop.





Sabiko-Hair Dye used: Special Effects Pimpin Purple

I'm normally a huge SE Atomic Pink fan, but this last time I wanted to go purple.
Pic -Pimpin Purple after 3weeks
You can see the more pinky purple near the ends... totally unintentional, it was just fading faster there, but it looked sweet for a whil


Ashley- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Cherry Bomb and Pimpin Purple

The first photo shows all dimensions of my hair. My natural color, the color
my roots are bleached when dying, and the dyed hair. The upper half of the
colored part of my hair (from about my jawline to the bleach) is about 2 months
old. I actually let the dye sit anywhere from 1 hour to 3 or 4 hours if I can. I
applied the color over already dyed hair for maximum brightness.

The second photo was taken with a full head of Cherry Bomb applied 8 days
prior and having been washed twice since then. I only bleach my roots once,
to a pale blonde, and I always apply the dye over my already pink hair for the
brightest possible effect all over and to avoid having to damage my hair by
repeatedly bleaching it all over. I let the dye sit for only 1 hour before rinsing this time.

Tonks- Hair Dye used- Special Effects Cherry Bomb and Pimpin Purple
And, Tonks... Congrats!!

This pic is my hair for my wedding in which I used SE Cherry Bomb and SE Pimpin Purple. My hair is always bleached before dyeing so that it is extra dry and will suck up the paint. My hair retains SE colors for 6 weeks or more with a little bit of fading because I only use hand soap to wash my hair. It helps with the dye bleeding out not as much. Blue hair pic, it was about 2 weeks, wedding pic is same day.

Hair Dye used: Special Effects Midnight Blue, Fishbowl, Electric Blue, Pimpin Purple &
Punky Colour Plum

I used Punky Colour Plum & Midnight Blue, and Special Effects Fishbowl.
Plum was added to the roots of some very faded Special Effects PimpinPurple (done before w/ bleached hair).
For the blue part, it was overfaded Special Effects Electric Blue that I bleached it more,
plus someroots, allowing the previous blue to become very light, while letting the roots stop at a normal yellow.
Added Fishbowl over it all, then added some Midnight Blue to the ends.This picture is a couple days after dyeing.



Hair Dye used- Special Effects Pimpin Purple

I used Special Effects color Pimpin' Purple. I dyed it over hair bleached to a light yellow.
The first picture was taken the day I dyed it, and the second picture was taken 3 months
after I dyed it. It faded to a magenta color about a month after I dyed it, and about
2 months after it faded to the pale pink in the second picture. Great color, though,
it lasted very long (I eventually had to dye over it because the color didn't entirely wash out),
and I have bought Special Effects colors ever since!

Hair Dye used- Special Effects Cherry Bomb and Pimpin Purple

Hey! My name is Kate and I recently ordered some Special Effects hair dye from you guys. I've had so much trouble in the past with keeping colors in my hair, even when it was done professionally, so I figured I would only try one last time before going to something boring like brown. The reason I used special effects was because of its reviews, so I am glad to help other hair color connoisseurs in any way i can.
To do my hair I dyed it black then waited a week or so and bleached out what I wanted to dye. I used Cherry Bomb and Pimpin Purple and mixed the two in most places but the bottom is mostly pimpin purple, and my bangs have a lot of cherry bomb in it. I LOVED the results! The pictures don't do it justice really because the lighting is bad, but it's very vibrant, and very pretty. Most dyes i've used only last a week, if that. The first two pictures are my hair after 1 week. The next pictures are after 2 weeks. My hair hasn't faded a bit! It's still gorgeous and vibrant. I get compliments on it every day. On a side note, not only is it good color, but it's good for my hair. It didn't fry it or damage it in any way which is a major plus.

Hair Dye used- Special Effects Pimpin Purple, Fishbowl, and Blue Mayhem

Hi, my name is Margo . I've been dyeing my hair for about 13 years. I bleached my hair beforehand so the dye would be bright. I used three colors of Special Effects: the front section is Pimpin Purple, the stripe in the middle is Fish Bowl Blue, the back is Blue Mayhem. Some of the Fishbowl was layered on top of the Pimpin Purple which is why there is dark blue around the stripe.This was taken a day after I'd dyed it

Hair Dye used- Special Effects Pimpin Purple and Wildflower

Mai used Special Effects, a mix of Pimpin Purple and Wildflower after bleaching with 30 vol. Her hair was black before she started.
I dye it every 2 weeks because I’m a freak about keeping the color vibrant. I’ve moved on to Fishbowl.
