Lauren Conrad shows off a cute pink ponytail
Every now and then, I get the urge to have pink hair. The more sensible angel on my shoulder dressed like a bank president always talks me out of it, with reasons ranging from, "It would clash with certain outfits," to, "People would take you even less seriously than they do now, if that's possible." And then I see people who have tried and failed. Pink done bad can look wishy-washy and pale and sad. You have to commit to it or not do it at all, kind of like super short hair.
But lately, the Pink Hair Bug is IN THE AIR. I went to a new doctor this afternoon, and she was rocking cute little pink streaks in her hair. A doctor! Someone who tortured through years of medical school! And then I got back to work and saw that reality starlet Lauren Conrad dyed the ends of her ponytail hot pink for a stop on her book tour this week. She tweeted a picture of it and then blogged about it the next day.
I LOVE it (not to mention her winged eyeliner). I think it's just right. Bold enough to look intentional, but not so all-over that it's shocking. Man. Now I'm really high on the idea of pink. Maybe when I'm through growing out my pixie cut I'll revisit it. It's at an akward stage now, and I'd hate to end up looking like Frenchy from Grease.
Or... maybe I'll just try it! I have an appointment next weekend...
Do you like this look? Have you ever gone pink?
