Welcome, ladies (and possibly gentlemen?) to another segment of Things We Love! Now let me just ask you one question: Who doesn't love a girl with bright, fun, colourful hair! If you answered "No one!", you'd be correct! Some examples below are Kaylah of The Dainty Squid, and pop star Katy Perry. Hair like this will always turn heads and make you the centre of attention! Not only that, but you will also feel confident and like a beautiful mermaid every day!

You can also experiment with pastel colours that are more subtle and just plain lovely like Kate of Scathingly Brilliant below!

I myself have experimented with colours in my hair over the years (a full post on the history of my hair coming soon!) Here are some of my favourites!
|Cherry red with my electric pink-haired girl, Sasssquatch! Caelan is wearing my Fleetwood Mac shirt from the Rock and Roll/SciFi museum in Seattle, and I am wearing a vintage dress (seen here!)|
|Halloween 2012; Katy Perry hair! Earrings and|
sweater from H&M
Now I know what you're asking yourself... "Sarah, how does one achieve such beautiful hair?!" Or maybe even "How are you not bald??" (something I hear quite often from peers)...
Well look no further! There are many articles and tutorials online to finding your perfect shade and making your dreams a reality!
Probably the most detailed and well thought out list of tips and tricks can be found on The Dainty Squid! Some maintenance and lots of love and dedication may be required to reach your goal, but it will be totally worth it in the end!
Just keep in mind that if you dye your hair a lot, regardless of colour, you must must must trim often to prevent split ends and hair breakage! That is the number one way to keep a healthy set of locks!
I hope this post inspired you to experiment with your hair and try some new things! Don't be afraid to take a risk--go bold or go home! And if you don't like it, you can always dye it back (or shave it all off!) Just remember to pick a colour that suits you best or that you just absolutely love and won't mind wearing with any colour of clothing and you'll be golden!
