Introducing Pink Hair!

June 23, 2011

I did it.  Pink Hair.  All of it.  Permanent Pink.  I LOVE IT!

Up until yesterday afternoon my hair was untouched by any coloring products.  I was as all natural as they come.  But I’ve been thinking about going pink for a whole year now.  Last year I got a few pink stripes, but they were just extensions.  Nothing was done to my real hair.  And a few weeks later they slipped out and I was back to my regular self.  And I’ve missed them ever since.

So yesterday I went to visit my stylist cousin Jess and I came home with pink hair.  Shocking pink hair in fact. I wasn’t really planning on that part.

Neither of us were really.  And if I look a little deer in headlights… well I kind of was.  But a happy kind of deer in headlights.  So the thing about going pink when you’re already really blonde and have never done a thing to your hair other than wash it is that it holds a lot of color.  Apparently.

But a few trips through the non color safe shampoo cycle and it is a lot more pink, and not quite so red.  Because red?  Red just wouldn’t do for today.

It’s not even been 24 hours, but I sometimes forget that my hair is newly pinked.  She gave me a new haircut as well, and I keep running my fingers through it (everyone does that, right?) and I’ll catch a glimpse of it out of the corner of my eye.  And it’s surprising.  A happy surprise.  My favorite reaction so far was my mom.  I went over to borrow some cupcake pans from her last night and after the standard “Oh my goodness!  It’s pink!” (I didn’t tell her I was going to dye it.)  She looked at me and said “You probably should have dyed your eyebrows too.”  Ha! I love her!

I decided a long time ago that if I ever was going to put color in my hair I wanted it to be something I would notice.  None of this “one shade lighter than my natural color” stuff.  And  I decided to do all over color as opposed to just chunks because I thought that might look less punk rocky.  I’m not a punk rocker dying my hair pink to make a statement.  I am the anti punk rocker actually.  Even though I usually wear jeans with holes in them.  I just kind of like pink, that’s all.

Now, I’m off to enjoy the rest of my morning playing pink games with Creamie and finishing up the last minute bits for my Pinkalicious Party this afternoon.  (I have my all day blog party today PLUS I’m hosting a pink cupcake/popsicle/pink lemonade party for 150ish people at a park this afternoon.  I ended up a little busier than expected today…) Happy Pink Day to you all.  Next up is the secret behind those rows of cryptic ruffles I posted last week.  Eeek! I am so excited!

    You DO rock! Love Love Love that hair! Good for you for doing your own thing. I am so enjoying Pink Week. i wish I could come to your Pink Party at the park. But I”m in SC so I’ll enjoy via your posts. I know what you mean about being surprised every time you pass a mirror. I painted my fingernails green and they surprised me every time I looked at my hands! (now, my mom was NOT so supportive) … so the green nail polish is gone but I have settled on purple toenails. I get comments from people all the time, which i find to be a hoot.
    Have a wonderful pink day!

    That’s one way to differentiate yourself from your twin! Bet no one will mix you up at today’s party. Well, they might.

    Soooo fun, e!! I tried it dye mine red and it did the whole one-shade-lighter thing and I was bummed. You, on the other hand, get to enjoy a brilliant and lovely ‘do for awhile!! It looks perfect on you!

    AHHH! I love it! I’ve been wanting to dye mine pink for ages, but my stylist pretty much said he’ll refuse to do it because bleaching my hair light enough would ruin my hair. So I have a pink wig haha.

    Love the colour….it’ll probably take you about a week before you get used to it, I once changed my VERY dark brown hair to completely white, I got a shock every time I looked in the mirror for about a week….but these things just HAVE to be done!! Good for you…..

    Yes, what does Creamie think? I bet she wants pink hair, too!! You look gorgeous and I love the cut, too. Rock it sister!
