Would you dip dye?

Or do you think it’s totally crazy?
I have to admit, I’m totally in love with this look! I don’t know if it’s my inner teenager screaming out for less boring hair or I’m just addicted to hair dye,  but I’m sure I’m getting some kind of dye job done. I’m a sucker for anything that’s unconventional or curly hair really doesn’t let me experiment much with hair styles.
I’m leaning towards the blonde, purple and dark pink looks.
What do you think? Love it or won’t be caught dead with it?



  • I have been staunchly against the dip dye for a long time, but these pictures aren't what I think of when I think of dip dye, so I think there's been some developments. I actually like a few of these a lot! So I say go for it!=)

  • I love it! i feel you have to have a certain look to pull it off, otherwise you can come off as being a bit childish or it can turn out really bad.

    I love this look too! I would say go for it! but the only downside would be if you have a very vibrant color (espcially pinks, blues, purples) they wash out easily and finding clothes that always match is a bit tricky 😉

    I would love to do a dip dye in blonde on the bottom half of my hair. I think it is so cute. I am slowly working up the courage to do it lol 🙂

  • I love this look! I don't think my hair is long enough yet to rock it though. It seems to look best on really long hair.

  • ooh can't wait to see pics of your new hair do 🙂 And you'd look awesome with this, I love what Lauren Conrad did – the blonde to peach, it looked so dreamy! Sadly, I can't pull blonde off haha.

    I've seen this all over youtube (gurus) and I actually like it a lot. Hmmm, maybe something to consider when my fro grows out.

    Some people look amazing in this style and some hmmm. Love to see how it turns out

    I love the look on others, but I'm more of a scary cat when it comes to my hair. I can be downright boring with it at times. Please make sure you let us know how it turns out if you decide to!

    Hi Weesha, I Love the look, and my 17 yr old daughter does it.  She does the back underneath, it shows in the back and also as an under layer when she puts her hair in front, hers is purple.  She even got her senior pictures done with it.  If I were younger, I would be doing it too.  Downside:  It doesn't last long-you have to bleach your hair underneath and your bathroom turns the same color as your hair.  I totally think it would be great for you.

  • I really love it. But I chopped off my hair yesterday xD Back to short, but maybe I will ask my hair dresses if we could do something about it and try it out on short hair. I really love gradients from blond to pastle colors just liek brown to a golden color.

    Love it, but I work in such a conservative environment, I don't think my manager (or my clients) would go for it. So I will live vicariously through others…

  • I love it! Mine is currently kind of dip dyed, I've had it a few times in the past too! It's super fun!

  • I like it… Wish my hair was longer

  • Anita

    yes i would dip dye! I LOVE my pink hair.  It's not really a teenager thing if you do it the way you want it. I say go for it. would look great on you 🙂
