    Jodi's Hair Color

    Re: Hair color

    On direct Nurmi shows a picture of Jodi with the dog, supposedly taken May 15, 2008:



    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature..._E3V-o#t=2376s

    Her hair looks blond to me, although Nurmi describes it as brown. He asks if her hair was similar when she rented the car, and she says yes.
    Nurmi asks if she changed her hair color from that pic above until she was at Travis' June 4, and she says she died it brown while she was in Mesa and died it darker brown later, but doesn't say when:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...N6WxOs#t=1861s

    She later testifies that she dyed it brown on March 20, 2008, even though Ryan first met her in April 2008 and it was blond:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...N6WxOs#t=2246s


    Later, Nurmi asks Jodi what color her hair was when she left Pasadena for Mesa, and she says auburn brown.and she says she did not stop to dye it along the way.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature..._E3V-o#t=3930s

    So it was blond in Redding, auburn brown when she was in Pasadena, but she didn't stop to dye it?

    In testimony a couple days prior, Nurmi asked when she died her hair, her testimony sounds contradictory, as she says she died it before Convention and also that she waited until after Convention to dye it:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...M2qT4k#t=2249s

    She then identifies these pics that were taken after she moved back to Yreka, and her hair was "various shades of brown"





    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...N6WxOs#t=1598s

    On murder day, June 4, 2008, her hair was clearly dark brown, with no blond highlights --but she thought she had deleted that evidence.




    Here's a pic of her mugshot, a little more than a month after killing Travis. This is the picture that the car rental guy ID'd her from but said that her hair was different when she rented the car -- it was blond at that time.



    She was blond when she met Ryan in April 2008, She was blond when she rented the car on June 2, 2008, and she was brunette when she arrived at Travis' on June 4, 2008, and she was brunette when she met Ryan on June 5, 2008

    CONCLUSION: She died her hair darker brown after she rented the car on June 2, 2008 but before she arrived at Travis' house on June 4, 2008. There is no other way to make sense of this.

    ----------------------------

    Not to mention the fact that the picture identified as being taken on May 15, 2008 was likely taken in 2007 as it appears to be taken at the same time as this picture in Jodi's myspace album that was last edited in February 2007:

    I need to find where in the testimony she said it, but basically Arias said on direct that she would not even physically be able to dye her hair back to blonde and proceeds to give beautician level details (which were not true: I googled it)

    Also, I am going to bring over the testimony of the car guy. He was very believable. It doesn't matter what shade of blonde the hair was... it did not match the color of the mug shot.

    (for further purposes the shade in the mugshot and the nude-murder-day picture were the same shade of brown.. in other words she didn't color it in between the sex picture and the mug shot)

    Hopefully we will have more to add after Juan puts on his rebuttal case.

    I was certain she dyed it in preparation for murder, but I wasn't expecting a flat-out denial like she testified. That has prompted me to try to prove her lies, and it's not easy because her testimony is so convoluted and inconsistent. B

    But the bottom line is, there is a witness who is completely unrelated to Jodi or Travis who identified her as having blond hair on June 2. He has no reason to lie, but Jodi obviously does. So far, her testimony about dying her hair has not been clear, except for the fact that she did flat-out say that she did not dye it "on the way". With Jodi's tendency to look for loopholes, in Jodi's mind this could mean that she did not dye it in between Pasadena and Mesa.

    I think it's during this part of the direct examination:

    People so far who make her out a liar:

    Ryan Burns (he claims her hair was blonde when he met her and was shocked at the brown when she shows up on her trip)

    Car Guy (sic: 'yeah that is the same lady right there except her hair was blonde')

    Adding the picture from Oklahoma, March 2008 (Convention) -- clearly her hair was still very blond.



    I thought Ryan met her at the Oklahoma convention, although he said it was April I believe.

    You can "tone" blonde hair to a darker shade.... this will not give you a real brunette appearance as such, however you can do this by using a true semi permanent colour ( one that lasts 6 shampoos and not mixed with developer/peroxide ) OR by using what is called a water rinse or even as simple as a dark brown shampoo.

    Then your hair will appear lighter as these colours fade when you stop using them.... or they just fade out.

    We're thinking it was at the Oklahoma Convention that RyanB met JA:

    ETA: JA testified she dyed her hair brown on 3/20, prior to moving from Mesa to Yreka and so must have been after the above convention.

    Hi Scoobysnack!

    Can you give us an idea of how long it would take to dye JA's very blonde, very long hair the brownish color she ended up with in the murder day nude photos? TIA

    No, Ryan said April 2008, but he said he met her at the convention in OK (I think), and that convention apparently took place in March.
