So, I talked about what I wanted to do...

and I did it!!

I wanted some pink in my hair.
I decided to start out conservative & just put in pink highlights.

Here are my before pictures:






And then the fun began.
I was nervous.




I had a lot of time to stare into the waiting area...and worry.



Finally the color was in, and then I had to wait a little more...

Here I am with the punk rock look...



And then, ta da!

Let there be PINK.



My hair is still wet in the photos, so it looks a little weird.



I'll have better pictures later on. The lighting is off on these, so it's hard to get an accurate view.

I'll wash my hair and style it and then take some more photos.




Have you ever had wild idea and followed it through?

Wow! You did it. Congratulations to you. I haven't done a wild thing in 19 years. LOL. Well, not like I used to anyways. Shhhh. that's a secret.

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

I love it!!! You have very pretty hair!

Um, hubby & I had a wild idea....too wild to share....and heck yeah we followed through!! It was fun!!!!

Justine said...

Yeah baby! I love it! Although in this last pic you look terrified! LOL!

Girl, most of my ideas tend to be on the wild side. Okay, not really, but I do have 4 tattoos, and I used to have my eyebrow pierced. I'd love to have my nose pierced but hubby would have a cow.

Justine :o )

Monogramchick said...

Oh my gosh, way to go!
I would be too terrified...but it is only hair and it looks great! What fun!
Hello, I am a southern girl living in IOWA--that is a wild idea!

Kat said...

Oh...I am full of wild ideas. And it's always interesting when there is follow through. Now I need to know what Keeper of the Skies Wife is up to :-0

I LOVE your hair. Your waves and curls look a lot like mine. And that last picture - you look totally freaked out!

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Yup, you looked pretty scared in your pictures. But your hair is gorgeous! Good for you!

Kori said...

I love it. The craziest thing I have ever done was get all my hair that was waste length cut off up to my ears. I haven't experimented alot with color but now you got me wanting to.

Teri said...

I love the highlights. I have the thought of getting my belly button pierced just because. My oldest bonus daughter wants to do it with me. I keep saying I will lose weight and do it, but now I think I'll just do it. I'm tired of waiting till the perfect day.

Way to go!

Lynette said...

Yeah! Don't you love it? I sure did when I did all the different colors.

Lula! said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!

Last night I sprayed bright pink and purple in mine. Seriously. It's that Halloween stuff, but I'm totally wearing it when I pick up Libbey from her 1/2 day at school today. I will get strange looks, but I'll be all, "Awwwww, yeah--check out my pink and purple locks, y'all!"

We are seriously cool people, Rhea. And I seriously LOVE your hair.

Brandy said...

I love it! And I follow my wild ideas all the time...I just got a new tattoo that no one understands.

But who gives a care...I love it and that's what matters.

Now I want to totally mooch your idea and do something drastic to my hair.

sassy stephanie said...

Girl, SMILE! You look like you are scared out of your mind!
I want turquoise or royal blue. But, I'm suffering from hair cut remorse right now. Gotta wait until it grows a little.

Living on the Spit said...

I really, really LOVE it!!!! You rock.

Everyday of my life is a wild idea and yes, I usually follow through with them...

I am in awe of you...my super hero!!!!

Love it!

Marlene

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Very cute!!

I do have wild ideas... and I follow through on them... but that's all I can say about that.

gingela5 said...

AWESOME! Looks so good! I haven't done anything too extreme! I recently have wanted to put some purple in but I think where I work would not appreciate it!

Blissful Babe said...

RAWK ON, my PINK SITSa!!!!

Sidney (Sixy Mama) said...

You have gorgeous pink hair, and I have to agree with Justine...you do look a tad terrified in the last pic!

Looks wonderful!

My wild idea...getting divorced!! So far, though, it's worked out wonderfully well!

Marrdy said...

Holy Katz!! You have gorgeous hair and the pink looks great. It will match your cowboy hat!!!

KimmyJ said...

You have purty hair - pink makes anything look even purtier!

oh, I wanna be entered to win!!

Coby said...

LOVE IT! Wtg!

KP said...

my freshman year of college, i decided to be 'rebellious' and put a bit of red in my hair... and have my friend do it.

it turned very, very purple.

but i actually kind of liked it.

the pink looks good! :)

Marrdy said...

Also wanted to let you know that I posted a little blurb about your giveaway.

Mind of MadMan said...

OK, you did it, but that last pic.. you look a little petrified!!

Katie said...

Good for you!! I think it looks awesome! :)

Tranquility said...

After thirty years of brown hair, I went blonde this past summer - it was a little bit of insanity I think.

The pink looks FANTASTIC!!

steenky bee said...

Yay! When I saw the title of your post in my reader, I just knew it would be this!! I. LOVE. IT. It looks awesome. Also? How much do I love the looks of your salon? Your hair is off the hook, sister!!

Swirl Girl said...

I have had lots of wild ideas but am just to much of a whimp to follow thru on any of them.

Add the fact that I have irrational fears of just about everything - and I am just not wild.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Very cool. It's been awhile since I've been wild. Used to be.

manic mariah said...

You do look scared :) I love it though. Too bad for me, I am so impilsive, I never even get a chance to worry I just do do do

SKELLER said...

WOW, m'dear! You've got GREAT HAIR!!! I can't wait to see the pink in more natural lighting :-)

Shannon said...

I want to know what YOU think of it... 'cause you look a little skeered in the pics!

I like it... it's very you!

Indy said...

My hair was a little pink this morning because of my blush. It is a powder and it just flies on my hair. My hair is really blonde so it shows up a lot. You look really scared in the photos.

How is your job search going?

KP said...

PS i tagged you in my blog :)

Momma Trish said...

Yes, I have, but I've learned my lesson. My wild ideas generally prove to be bad ideas. Unlike yours, 'cause your hair looks fabulous!!

goodfather said...

WOOOO HOOOOO! Looks absolutely rockin'! Wayyyy better than purple! ;)

angie said...

I'm actually very conservative when it comes to my hair and clothing. Kudos to you for following through with a wild but fun idea.

HiHoOhio said...

Go Girl!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Pretty in Pink but I'm with Sassy Steph - SMILE!!!! You look like you're freaking out :)

Linda said...

I got a tattoo back in my college days. Oh yeah, I was way wild then. LOL Hair-wise, the craziest I ever got was to cut it all off. Not my best choice. I am not a short-hair person. But how would I ever know that unless I tried, right?

I love that you took the chance ... what fun!

Captain Dumbass said...

Well, there was that idea for the Yakuza-style full back tattoo...

I love the look in your eyes in that last pic!

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

OMG you gone done it you nutty mare! LOL at the piccies, you can so tell you're terrified!

A few months back I had a 5-hr nightmare back in July when my ex-hairdresser turned my hair pale pink. Personally it wasn't for me and she made one helluva mess fixing it!

You have guts girl, I'll give you that and it's a pretty colour.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

BTW the hubster and I think you're the spit of Dr Hahn off Greys in that last piccie

Jennifer and Sandi said...

Love it!!!!! I change my hair color as often as I change my...well you know!

You Go Girl!!

- Jennifer

Cristin said...

You look scared!! I had five wild ideas... and 5 tattoos... I'm not done yet...

Cristin said...

Oh, and the pink looks great!

Ginny said...

I love it, looks good!

J'Ollie Primitives said...

You DO look like Hahn from Grey's Anatomy ~ Kewl!

Love the pink. It's a gorgeous shade with the blond.

More pics please!

Susie said...

You are the second person I have seen this week to go pink! It looks really good:-)

Jen said...

that is so cool. I have always wanted to put blue or green in my hair but it is not allowed at work and my hair is too short. I am going to live through you.
Beautiful, it fits you.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Uh, well, nothing that permanent.

Jennifer said...

Hey Rhea--great minds think alike, right!?! Your hair looks GREAT! Actually--what you got was more what I had in mind--but my stylist had a different idea!

Now that I've gone completely crazy w/ my hair I might just keep it up! Green? Blue? Who knows what's next!?!

And I'd love a chance for the Jambalaya stuff!

Also I'm adding you to my my blogroll--us Pinkheads have to stick together!!

Angie's Spot said...

You're so brave! I've always wanted to dye a platinum blonde streak into my very dark brown hair, but I just can't do it. My excuse in the past has been because I was working in a serious corporate environment and it wasn't appropriate. Now, I'm just chicken. You have inspired me. Maybe I'll give myself an early Christmas present. Confidence.

The Stiletto Mom said...

You look a little worried in that last picture which made me laugh. I think the pink rocks!!!

I haven't done anything crazy in years....but I'm starting to get the urge and you are not helping!!

StarbuckBitch said...

I got really sick when i was 19, ws in the hospital for a few week..my hair didn;t get brushes or wshed for the first week and ws one big rats nest. I told my Mom if she didn't get it combed out I was going to cut it all off and dye it pink...she speant the next 3 hours combing out my hair...I wish she hadn't! You go girl!!!

Shannon said...

I showed these pics earlier to my girls... they so think I should do this, too!

Karen said...

I love it !! That is really cute. Jen over at 'The Funhouse' has pink streaks as well !! Must be in the air :-)

Yeah ... I often have wild ideas .... sometimes I follow them through..

Misty Dawn said...

My gosh you have gorgeous hair!

Krystyn said...

Cute! your hair is so soft looking.

Why do you look so terrified in the pictures?

DysFUNctional Mom said...

It's so pretty! I love it. I've had some pretty funky hair colors in my day, too. But the wildest ideas I've had and followed through with are my piercings! They've all closed up now, but I've had my navel, labret (under bottom lip) and my nose pierced. I loved them!

Christy said...

I LOVE IT!! Awesome! :)

CrystalChick said...

You have absolutely gorgeous hair!! It would look good any color, but pink sure does suit you! Awesome. Glad you did it.

angela | the painted house said...

LOVE IT!!!!!!!

Mama Dawg said...

You ROCK! My hair is a dark, dark brown, so no color for me. Plus the hospital would hate it. If I ever get a job working out of my home, however, I may go for some blue spikes!
