We Love Halloween!

Dear Reader-

The girls of Do Or Dye just love Halloween. We started decorating at the end of September just so we could stretch out the Halloween spirit for a few extra days. The theme is Dia De Los Muertos, and we all brought in our favorite items. We even have an altar honoring the returning spirits for Day Of the Dead. We are Walking Dead fans, and love some good gore, one of us more than the rest ( wink wink.)

So what to do for interesting Halloween hair this year? Finding inspiration can be tricky, especially if you are like us and tend to be an, ahem, wonderfully different dressed up kind of person on the daily. Pintrest and the Internet is a great place to start of course, but your best resources are right here, with us. If you’ve been toying with an idea, but aren’t sure about the execution, just ask. Chances are, we can either talk you through it or just do it. Avante garde, crazy medusa, rock in’ 80s, whatever! Share your ideas with us and we can help make them come to life!

Happy Halloween!

Cherry Coke Perfection

Dear Reader-

Today we are veering away from the usual hairy topics to discuss something extremely important. Cherry Coke. Not that roughness in the can- homemade. You will find all of us at Do Or Dye greatly enjoy discussing our favorite foods and recipes. Deviled eggs, burritos, La Villa ravioli… Its quite an extensive topic for us.

Hubs and I were at Peggy Sue’s malt shop in Downtown San Jose, and they had the best Cherry Coke I have ever tasted. I swooned over it to the manager and he gave me the secret- maraschino cherry syrup! Forehead slap, of course!!

First in is the ice. Second, spoon in some syrup and a few cherries direct from the jar. Then add the Coke. Finish with a straw. The straw is an important factor in this scenario. It allows you to sip up both juice and soda at the same time. Voila! Cherry Coke at its finest! And for all you retro kids out there, that is indeed a paper straw.

You are welcome.
