Cotton candy daydream

I've wanted cotton candy pink hair for years, long before Vixen Vintage was created, and even before I met Sam! I toy with the idea every now and again, but never follow through. Then one day I woke up, looked in the mirror, and thought "where's my pink hair?" 

Oh right, I never had it. 

And that's ridiculous to want something attainable for years but never make the jump. So I made the appointment and spent 8 hours at J. Michael Salon making my dark brown hair platinum, then pastel pink. I made it a bit more vibrant myself using Special Effects in Atomic pink and conditioner, and after setting it for the first time I really can't imagine anything else could be better. 

Watching Angelina L.B.'s hair coloring video was so helpful, because I really had no idea what to expect with coloring my hair a pastel shade. I also read hair F.A.Q.'s on Scathingly Brilliant and Mermaidens (and got completely sidetracked by their pretty posts). 

I picked up the dress today, it's something I probably wouldn't have taken home if my hair didn't match, and honestly all I want to wear right now is pink, mint, black, and baby blue. I already have some pretty colorful sweaters waiting around for fall!

I've been wearing these Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses since they first arrived at my doorstep, I love how serious the black lacquered front is, but the lining is bright and colorful. It's going to be a long summer, but some trusty sunglasses sure do help!

I've gotta admit, I'm not huge on colorful hair because I see it done in really bad ways sometimes, but you make it look really classy! I love it :)

Kailey said...

You look so so great!! Really suits you :D X

Soooo gorgeous!! I myself would never be able to pull off pastel hair but man I so am jealous! You look amazing! Never really thought about how hair color might change the color of outfits one picks but I guess I've always had the same hair color! Innnnteresting!

You seriously rock the pink hair like no other. I absolutely love it!

Witchcrafted Life said...

Sensationally cool!!! You are rocking pink locks sublimely. If I was headed in a non-Mother-Nature-created-it kind of direction with my hair colour, a similar shade of pink or, on the darker side of the spectrum, pine/forest green, would be my first choice.

Magdalena said...

That was the right choice, you look fabulous! :)

Sammi said...

Absolutely gorgeous. I wish I could pull off pink hair, so I have to live vicariously through others who can :)

GAH! You are just such a vision! I've definitely had dreams of having pink hair or lavender hair...

I LOVE your pink hair! I've been toying with the idea of doing pink myself, but I don't know if I want to sit through another six to eight hours of bleaching and dyeing to get it (I had blonde hair briefly, and it took forEVER). I might do dark fuchsia ends instead.

I never thought I'd say this about pink, but this is pretty badass.

I don't think I could ever try pink hair (though I'd like to), but I love it on you! And it looks marvelous with your dress :).

I wore a pink wig almost the same shade when I did White Christmas a few years ago and loved how it looked on me. Although i can't manage the upkeep on a color like that, I'm seriously considering buying my own pink wig to wear.

Shermy said...

I can't actually have pink hair because of work, but now I want it! Maybe they won't notice...?

Unknown said...

I've thought about having pink hair multiple times too. Maybe someday. I absolutely love your new pink hair and how perfect it looks with that awesome dress. You look fantastic!

Oh wow! Your hair looks fabulous and I adore the colours of your dress! I basically want to look like a cotton candy puff everyday of the week, but found that I couldn't pull off the pastel pink hair that well...

It was a sad, sad day when I had to give up on the dream and go back to my red tresses. I love the look on you though Solanah!

You look brilliant, I love it! You may find coconut oil helps to keep it in good condition , I used to love it as a leave in treatment when my hair was pastel.

Tamara said...

Seriously amazing. I had bright pink hair once and the Special Effects stuff was amazing for that! It lasted forever.

Love love love your hair!

Andi B. Goode said...

Gah, I can't get over how amazing pink hair looks on you!!! I've wanted some kind of pastel-y hair for ages, too, but I'm always uncertain (because of my colouring & also because I am lazy haha). I can't wait to see your colourful sweaters with your pink hair.

x said...

Aww, beautiful dress and beautiful girl! I adore your hair, so much envy <3 hihi

You look gorgeous! The pink hair suits you so much, it looks great with your colouring. And what a serendipitous dress find! I had a similar thing with wanting Little Mermaid style bright red hair for years. I always thought it wasn't "me", but I finally did it and I absolutely loved it!

Caity said...

Omg I love your hair!

Klara said...

Suits you perfectly! So does the dress.

Oh honey, good on you for taking the plunge! You look incredible.

the quirky brunette said...

Aaaah, I LOVE your hair!!!! And the mint crochet dress complements it perfectly.

Unknown said...

Oh how lovely! I've been feeling the same way. I want to colour my hair pink or maybe even green. It's one of those dreams that I haven't for filled.

You look stunning in that hair <3

Rebecca Jean said...

As if I wasn't envious enough of your locks, you go and do something I have wanted to for years. Although I think I would actually go for purple. Which is odd, because it's a color I own none of.

Pink definitely suits you. I am going to be obsessing about this. Now that you have lived with it for a month, how is the upkeep? That's what worries me the most. Not what other people will think or if I will like it, but how I will maintain it and how to go back if I tire of it.

Kudos for going for it! I'm envious.

Cheers!
