Posting since I've got pastel hair! Colored it light purple a while ago...

first did a white/gray base, then purple (light purple).

I can highly recommend it, having pastel hair is a lot of fun and adds a new dimension to everything you're wearing. Also, light pastels aren't as radical as a really really bright color, so old people wont get scared and you wont lose your job

These colors (unnatural ones) tend to not last very long. My dye has been losing it's color with every wash...

Some pics, of when it was new, and when it's now fading

you look fantastic! I like the look of it when it's fading, it looks nice since you have that white base

I think your right about it not being as intimidating as strong colors since it's much softer and more playful

anyone got any good examples on pastel on darker hair?

^ When I googled pastel hair a really cute image from forever 21 came up of a girl with auburn-ish hair and pastel pink pieces in it. It looked really good.

Pastel hair makes me always think of this one old editorial in Lula magazine in 2008 or something. I think it was issue 6, anyone know the one I mean? I can't find pics anywhere

This seems like a really refreshing idea. I wonder if I could pull if off though,



maybe I could do just sections in 'cold' purple / blue / green? Thing is I've never colored or dyed my hair, I'm still afraid it'll do permanent damage and turn it from sleek and shiny to burnt out and dead

I think I'm just going to buy pale blonde clip in extensions and dye them pastel, there are some awesome colours on ebay. Just too concerned about blasting my hair with bleach!

This sounds like a good idea - clip on extensions. Does anyone know of a place online that sells them though? But in colors like pastel pink, purple ect?

I bought a pastel pink hair color but I think I have to have almost white hair to make the color work because I tried it on some of my hair (medium blonde) and no color at all...
