must have: pastel hair

In my final year of university I dyed my hair tropical green. It wasn't all green - the underside was bright green, while the very top layer was my normal colour. I wanted enough colour to make it awesome, without being told off by my work for having ridiculous hair. I also thought that perhaps my graduation photo should probably be sensible, though you can still see a little tinge of green if you look carefully, which is just enough.

Where I currently work I can't imagine any colour of hair out of the ordinary would be acceptable, but since I'll be leaving very soon I've been dreaming of all the pretty things I could do, and as girly as it might be, most of them involve pastel colours...

I am especially loving the rainbows, but since my hair is so dark I doubt they would have the same effect. I might just stick with green - but this time it'll be mint green!

Have you ever dyed your hair pastel? 
If you ever do, what colour/s would you choose?

I wouldn't suit pastel hair, but I've always wanted bright purple or bright blue hair!

That reminds me of the Jem doll I got for my 5th birthday, back when Mum still refused to by me a Barbie. She had pink sparkly hair on top, and blonde hair beneath. You put the pink sparkly hair under a beret for her to become Jerrica!

oh my god i'd love to try a "out of the ordinary colour" in my hair!!
I never did that before, or never actually thought of going for a strange colour but it looks so fun!
Thank you for giving me new ideas!
have a great day!

I managed to get some subtle colour by chalking my hair. It was ace. I think mint could be cool - and it would be worth getting it done at a salon - you could even get reverse tips!

Or for something less permanent I think asos are selling pastel sprays at the moment. They are calling me.

I wasn't sure if chalking would work on my hair - it's not that it's too dark, but it's so thick and untameable!

I think when I quit my job it'll be a little treat for myself, to get me into self-employed mode!

Though pastel sprays are all kinds of tempting...

Love this! So tempted to dye my hair a different colour again...not too sure if my work would like pastel pink or lilac though!

I know what you mean, mint green isn't too subtle either! But as soon as I quit, it'll be on!
