I thought I would go in tonight to get my hair done-icing on the back-to-school make-over. I needed to do my roots, but thought I would go all out. I told my stylist to surprise me. We talked about several ideas, and I tossed out pink. I use to have pink highlights in college, and sometimes wish I had it back. But I didn't think she would take it seriously. Fast forward three hours. I had her do everything with my facing away from the mirror, as I hate to see myself with wet hair. As she was blow drying my hair, I saw a pink glow in my bangs area. My heart started to beat very fast, and I couldn't believe she had actually done it. All I could think about was how I was going to explain it to my principal. I have no idea how they would take pink hair. Our second grade teacher has a nose ring and is super cool, so I would think they would be ok with pink hair, but you never know and I haven't signed my contract yet.... Major panic. Then she turned me around. Ah-ha! It was just strawberry blond! The highlights are a light redish pink, but def. not punk pink. She said it looks like Nicole Kidman. Whew. I really like it, although it's a bit short (I have to keep tucking my bangs behind my ear, which I hate). But it def. looks more stylish than my old cut, and it's not pink. So I don't have to explain it away. Do any of you have bright colors in your hair? Did you ask permission, or just go for it?
