Pink hair inspiration

Back in junior high, I was inspired by the hot pink hair styles of P!nk and Kelly Osbourne. I used to dye my hair a lot back in those days, but I never had the guts to actually dye it pink (or any other color, for that matter). I bought a semi-permanent blue hair dye kit once, but it sat forever in my room, unused. Too chicken.

Lately I've been inspired by the messier, lower-maintenance pink hair styles: dip dye, ombre, streaks, etc. Dyeing only parts of your hair pink seems like a good way to get that pop of color without the crazy upkeep of maintaining an entire head of hot pink. Just let your dip-dyed tips fade, or cut them off. And if you need to go somewhere/do something where you'd rather not have bright pink hair, you could hide it away in a bun.

Well, I finally took the plunge and dip dyed my hair hot pink! I did it myself (a bit scary), and mostly followed the DIY tutorial from Oh So Pretty: DIY "Dip" Dyed Hair. It's gorgeous, it's hot pink(!!) and today I feel like I'm channeling my inner Pink. Badass.

I'll share some process pics tomorrow! :)

  1. I think pink hair is awesome :)

    When I was younger I used to dye my hair all sorts of fun colors, but then when my daughter (now almost 15) was in kindergarten she got upset that my hair was 'weird colors not normal like the other moms' and I talked myself into thinking I was too old for fun hair. I was wrong, wrong, wrong and I think it's time that I, too, went pink.

    Thanks for the inspiration :)
