I Finally Did It-Pink Hair!

So, I've been wanting to get pink hair ever since I was little and rented the Mario Paint game and there was a girl with pink hair. But growing up I wasn't allowed to dye my hair crazy colors and I never knew how well it would since I have very dark hair.
But I found out this year that there was nothing in the library policy about hair color, so I decided to ask my friend who's also my hair stylist to help me go pink. I thought it would be a great way to stand out during my Summer Reading Program school visits-and so far all the teens have loved it so I think it's a success! So I had to share my new pink hair! (Aren't teen librarians so cool?)

I'm planning on keeping it for awhile, so if you're at ALA, you can find me-I'll be the girl with the pink streaks in her hair!:)

  2. I love the contrast between your dark hair and the pink! It's so funny that you did this because I have always wanted to do a streak of bright pink or turquoise in my hair, but I have medium brown curly hair. I just don't think the curly just doesn't really work with a bright streak. Makes me sad.

  10. I love it and plan on having something similar done this summer! As a teacher I want to do it, but I don't want to freak out all my parents (or students too!)

  11. That looks fabulous! I did something similar a few months ago and loved it, but my blue streaks faded so quickly. I was thinking of doing pink next year though, and your pics only make me more convinced!

    Congrats on taking the pink plunge!

  12. It looks great on you! I'm a little old at 49, but otherwise I might go in for turquoise....I have dark hair like you but now I have "natural" streaks (of gray!)

  19. That is too cool! I am very envious! I think our library does have a policy regarding hair color--has to be a natural color, but that is great. I bet your teens love it!

  22. NICE! I always envied the girl in college with the hot pink pixie cut. And I was going to dye my hair blue for high school graduation, but they told me I couldn't give my speech if I did. *ahem*

  24. One of the happiest days of my life was the day I discovered a job that didn't care what my hair colour was! So I have been black, purple and pink for the last 5 years and I don't think I'll ever stop! (Some times I opt for the red over pink but then switch it up). I don't know why hair colour makes me so happy - maybe because I always wanted to be one of Jem and the Holograms. ;)

    The hair looks VERY cool! If I were a teen coming into the library I would want that hair!

  25. WOW, that's a lot of comments.
    Anyway.
    WIN. I love your hair. You look fantabulous.
    I now want colored hair. If only my mother would approve...

  26. I'm in the middle of "The Future of Us" right now, and their school librarian has a pink stripe in her hair. It made me think of you :)
