They Wanted PINK Too!!!

I am very blessed to have five BEAUTIFUL granddaughters in my life! Each one is unique and precious! Being the mother of three sons, I never imagined myself with ANY girls, ever! I thought I was destined to have only boys! Even our dogs were boys! So you can imagine how much fun I have had with these little girls! When they found out I was getting my PINK hair, they wanted in on the fun! They were coming for a sleepover and so PINK hair definitely was going to be on the agenda!

I had gotten some pink shampoo from my stylist that I will use about every other shampoo. This will help maintain my color. I asked Harley, my stylist, if this would also work for my little girls in turning their blond locks pink. She thought it would just fine. When they got here, they wanted to start the process ASAP. They hardly had their suitcase put away, before they were in the bathroom, ready to turn pink! I washed and washed my first little girl’s hair several times, and couldn’t see any results. She came up out of the sink and looked in the mirror and said, “Was this a FAIL?” It was so cute, but I felt so bad that I wouldn’t be able to help them achieve pink! I called a local beauty supply store and asked them if they had ANY products I could use. They recommended these two…

This and this.

We left right away and drove to the store in hopes of getting their hair pink THAT DAY. I felt good about what we had found, after being told just how to use the products. We first spayed the BLONDME on their dry hair and brushed it through. We then blow-dryed it. You could see some pink, but it was very mellow and sort of a silvery pink. Then we took the chalk and ran it through sections with a sponge. WOW! This stuff really works good, and added the hot pink that they wanted. The only thing…..it’s messy!!!!!!! It was all over the floor, then their clothes, and then their faces. I was afraid they would get it on the furniture!!! We used a flat iron on their hair which seals in the color a little better. Then added lots of hairspray! This too, will hold in the color! They were in LOVE! It seemed once we were done with the whole process, the color wasn’t as easy to get all over. So the flatiron and spray really did do a good job in keeping it in their hair. These pictures were taken the next day.

All of the color washed out on the first wash. I was told that the spray would stay in for about three washes, but no. Kind of disappointing! Perhaps I didn’t spray enough in? But it was such fun while it lasted and they both LOVED, LOVED their PINK hair!

 

I’ve linked here the products again. The girls sweaters are from the GAP, but I couldn’t find them on-line. They very well could be in your local GAP, and they are on sale!!! So similar styles are linked.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner the PINK hair will be the perfect accessory. What a fun activity for you to try PINK hair either on yourself, or for the little girls in your life. I’ve added a shopping collage here, with some darling outfit ideas for them as well!

Happy Day!

  1. Wow!! Blessed little girls to have such awesome memories with you!! My mom always said…”It’s ALL about the memories, that’s ALL that matters”.

  2. Oh my gosh! Too cute, Shauna! I love how close you are to your granddaughters. They will remember these moments forever. I’m the same way with my brother’s 3 kids (ages 9, 7, and 3). When we are together we are always going on adventures and having slumber parties. I only wished they lived closer. Hope you are having a great week! 🙂
