Stop the presses, I found the Next Best Thing.
Next to a dye job that you might regret, that is. Pretty in Pastel is a tumblr I found via Pinterest (where else?) of photos of celebs, models, and cool girls out there… all edited to have pastel-hued hair. Incredible, right?
Let’s leave aside the wicked Photoshop skills these photos require and just focus on the sheer, overwhelming beauty of their subject matter. I’ve been loving the idea of unnatural-coloured locks for awhile now, as has the fashion zeitgeist. First ombré was a thing, then the extra-brave girls out there and went one further and gave us coloured ombré. Fast forward and few months and these days, I can’t help but repin any image of a pretty young thing with all-out pastel- or jewel-toned tresses.
Take a look at these photos and I’m sure you’ll understand. There’s just something so fun and fearless about the look, isn’t there?

So, let’s play a little game. If you had the guts to do this (I’m assuming you’re chicken shit like me, but if that’s not the case, colour me impressed), what shade would you go for?
