new baby pink hair

Choker - DIY, Top - c/o SheInside, Trousers - H&M

I posted about my new pink (ish) hair on Instagram & Twitter, so I thought those of you who haven't seen it or want a bit of a closer peek wouldn't mind this post! You’re probably looking at these pictures thinking this isn’t much of a drastic change, but for me it’s quite a biggie as I’ve literally always had the same hair. Other than the odd disastrous moment (I have had a few bleaching mishaps in my time!), my hair has always been quite long & blonde. I fancied a bit of My Little Pony hair so thought I’d give the L’Oreal Pastel Toning Conditioner in Pink Panther a go. What do you think to the results?! It’s kind of a backwards ombre isn’t it? I quite like that, I love the traditional way of having coloured tips but it’s nice to try it the other way round.

The pink is only supposed to last a few washes so it’s worth a go if you’re a bit of a scaredy cat like me. I only left it on for 5 minutes instead of 15 as I had a massive panic thinking it was going to ruin my hair.. I definitely wish I’d not been a wimp & had gone for the 15 now! Have any of you guys tried these semi-permanent dye thingymabobs? I know a lot of people said it didn’t work for them, so I wouldn’t get it if you’re expecting amazing results. I used plenty of toner beforehand & lots of my blonde bits are really light, which probably helped. I'd say it's definitely worth a go if you're fancying a change for a few days.. I wanted pink for the Easter Bunny! Now lets all go our body weight in chocolate.

  1. I love your hair and it really suits you. I'd love to be able to just randomly dye my hair pink but I think I would probably have to bleach it first. xx

  43. This looks lovely, I want to use the peachy orange colour but I'm a bit of a chicken too. Has it faded after every wash? I'm scared as my hairs so bright that it would leave a little tinge even after the washes! Eeep. Really like the lowlights in there too, looks awesome!x

  44. I looove it on the roots of your hair. Weirdly mine worked a bit at the very ends - that's where it's blondest though! I now have some pink Crazy Colour, psyched to do it at the weekend.

  45. It looks great and you are really beautiful!! I use Directions semi permanent colours all the time but my hair is no stranger to hair dye. My thinking is: if I ruin it, I'll just dye it another colour until it looks good. Haha. I could always cut it off as well, I'm not that bothered about my hair. I know many girls who are though, and yours is so beautiful I would be scared to ruin it as well. Good job it looks great!
