Sweety High: What's been your favorite design you've created thus far?

DJ Victory: My tie-dye design started all of it, so I would say that one. That's how I came about using icing bags to apply color to the hair to get all of the different designs and faces that I've done.

SH: How long does it usually take for you to come up with a design and then execute it?

DV: I'll come up with ideas at random times, usually as I'm about to fall asleep. When I actually sit down to finish a piece, depending on the detail, it can take up to four hours. I usually don't do it all at once though.

SH: What inspired you to create your hair art?

DV: I was inspired by a photo of a plaid neck tie in a catalog that my husband had laying around. The colors and the pattern were so amazing that I kept staring at it thinking it would be so amazing on hair. I started experimenting with different applications and techniques. From there, the rest is hair painting history!


SH: What's the best way to take care of your hair that will prevent further damage after you've dyed it?

DV: Getting your hair trimmed on a regular basis is key. Always make sure you're going to a licensed professional hair stylist, too.


SH: Which hair color do you think really looks good on everyone?

DV: I believe that people should wear whatever color they feel comfortable in. I can make recommendations and give my advice freely, but in the end, it's what you like that matters.

SH: Which colors do you recommend for a beginner?

DV: I think a semi-permanent color would be a great start for someone who wants to try out a color or go darker. The reason being is that a semi eventually fades out, as opposed to a permanent color. If someone wanted to go lighter, maybe start with a few randomly-placed, hand-painted highlights.


SH: How often do you color your hair?

DV: I have one of my friends lighten my hair every four to six weeks, sometimes even longer.

SH: Which color is your favorite for your hair?

DV: I'm personally a bleach blonde lover! I'm naturally pretty light, but I started highlighting my hair when I was 19 years old, and from that point on I've gotten progressively whiter and lighter. I love cool tones on myself.


SH: What does your daily hair routine look like? What's your go-to hairstyle?

DV: It's a great day if I'm even able to wash my own hair! I'm all about the messy bun. Less than a minute and you're done.

SH: Have you had any regrets about any of the styles you've tried?

DV: Not really! I have had every length from pixie to the middle of my back. I like my hair short and long. Hmmm, maybe I should try a mullet????? It's so fun to play with your hair, because it is by far your very best accessory! Your options are endless.
