Pink Hair.

A few days ago, I popped in to a midtown beauty supply store with a friend and spent the better portion of an hour trying on wigs. (Why hadn't I thought to do this sooner? We had so much fun. Here I am as a blonde.) Though I don't think I'm ready to go platinum just yet, I do like the idea of a little unexpected color. Pink streaks? I'm tempted.


Have a wonderful weekend! And if you have a moment, hop on over to Akiko's blog to check out a little Q&A we did about this lovely illustration. Thank you again, Akiko! 

NOTE: I'm having a very hard time sourcing these images, which were all found via Pinterest. If anyone can help me out, any info on original sources would be much appreciated. I'd love to be able to credit properly.

Those hair photos sure are pretty. What fun to try on wigs. You look great as a blond! Wishing you a great weekend.

Do it, do it! I've had the urge to dye my hair every so often for years. Doing my whole head is a little intimidating, though, especially since I actually love my hair color. Streaks would be fun, though! The closest I've ever gotten to that was dying the bottom three inches of my hair red with Kool-Aid. Did you know that if you pour Kool-Aid into hot/boiling water and then dip your hair in it for a good 3-5 minutes, it's permanent? Mine lasted 8 months and even then it was still bright red - people used to ask to smell my hair because it was so red they were convinced it would smell like strawberries or raspberries, haha.

And those pinks above make me want to eat ice cream!

i wish my hair could pull this off. my hair is so dark black that no color holds unless i get it bleached/stripped at the salon. love unexpected colors on hair though. especailly those soft pinks.

I saw that photo on Instagram - you looked soooo cute, seriously! You could totally pull off that pink hairdo in that last photo too.

Rachel, Kool-Aid is permanent?! That's crazy! I had no idea!

Jacquelyn, I'll do it if you do it! :)

Lydia, you would look so cute with streaks - might be worth the bleach...

Angela, Ronnie, & Loulou, thank you! I was seriously tempted to buy that wig :)

I think you make a lovely blonde!

Pink streaks are cool but i'd probably just use clip ons for a less permanent look!

April said...

I've had pink hair before and I loved it. This has me wanting it again.

Shoko said...

Trishie, that's smart! Excellent thinking :)

jillian m. said...

Yeah, I've always wanted pink hair! Unfortunately, I've consistently had jobs that didn't allow funky-colored hair, so...

Whatever, pink hair rocks. You should do it.

Linda said...

You would look AMAZING with pink hair.

If you ever have a hard time sourcing images, you should use www.TinEye.com, which is a Reverse Image Search Engine. I found that that the girl with the black bird-cage netting is actually originally blogged from: http://jynxthenerd.tumblr.com/ with a copied post on weheartit.com

I hope that helps!
