While wedding tradition calls for every bride to have âsomething blue,â most soon-to-be newlyweds have a choice in selecting which item fits the bill. However this almost wasnât the case for one Canadian woman, whose mishap with an ink pen left her with a large blue stain in her blonde hair shortly before the big day.
Daphne Martin had twisted her platinum hair up at work and secured it with an ink pen. Unfortunately the pen turned out not to be the best accessory when it somehow exploded, leaving a large ink stain at the back of Martinâs neck.

"A co-worker approached me and told me what had happened, and I was in complete shock," Martin told Allure.
The bride-to-beâs colorist, Kelly O'Leary-Woodford, shared a photo of the mishap on social media Wednesday. âOne week before my client's wedding, her pen that was in her ponytail burst. What number is this on your âworst everâ scale?!â she wrote.
Martin, whoâs gone to cosmetology school, rushed home and took matters into her own hands. "Letâs just say there was a series of ponytails and kitchen sink hair-washing," says Martin,
She enlisted the help of her fiancÃ© to get the dark stain out of her hair. "I washed the area, blew it out, and then applied bleach. Surprisingly enough, five minutes of bleach got that out of my extremely light hair. My hair was back to normal that day â" even an hour later, thank goodness."

O'Leary-Woodford warned others against putting a pen in their hair, calling this the âcraziest thing sheâs ever seen.â
"Kelly has never let me live it down," Martin told Allure. "Iâve learned my lesson: No more pens as hair accessories."
