Today I read an article on psdtuts.com on how to create a logo for whatever reason, the one in the article being a series of how to books all starting with the phrase¬† “how to be a rockstar…” and then whatever the subject was. The article brought you through the whole creative process around creating a logo, everything from broad ideas like what do you want to portray with your logo to say about yourself to specifics whether it would be better to go with a logo that is just text or one with a symbol and how to even choose a name.

The original intent of looking at this site was to help inspire and guide me in making a logo for “iamsonoflars” or even just “son of lars” but the more i thought i realize this might also answer questions i’ve been having on how to define my life… and this just brings up all sorts of memorys of existentialism. To try and be brief i’ve always owned cheap clothes and often worn many free t-shirts because i didn’t want to care about how people judge me and let them define who i am by trying to dress in society’s standards, but now i’m realizing maybe i can still not be defined by society how i’m currently portraying myself isn’t the way i want to define myself. I want to stay true to me but somehow i also want to change and to figure out those changes i almost need to figure out my identity and create a sort of self branding for my everyday life.

So i’ve been conisdering dying my hair for a couple months now and a couple weeks ago i gave it an attempt. There are several lessons i learned from this “attempt”; from don’t buy RAW color hair dye because it won’t last to make sure everything is cleared off the sink cause somehow dye will go everywhere. Ok, so those plus don’t take a shower to wash the dye out because it will dye all the skin that it touches on it’s way to the drain were pretty much all the lessons i learned.

So after just a couple weeks my hair is back to it’s normal color, and i guess i shouldn’t have tried dying dark brown hair black just on it’s own so that’s why i’m giving it another shot, but this time something that will hopefully look unnatural and well different while i’m still young.

My plan originally was to attempt black hair with red streaks/ highlights but i’m not really sure how that will look and i’ve trying to do some research into things people have done already. Apparently google just likes to show off photos of emo kids (and yes i realize i might look like one) with all similar colors. I’m looking for more unique hair dying techniques.

Hit the jump to see some images i found with at least something i like in each of them.
