I have to admit that my biggest guilty pleasure this summer (aside from Justin Bieber’s new Boyfriend jam) has been the bright acid-colored hair trend.

From Dianna Agron to Kate Bosworth to Katy Perry, it seems like every single celeb has dipped (ha ha) their toe into the trend and to be honest I sat back radiating  envy every time I saw some starlet’s newly-acquired aqua or orange or purple locks.

Finally I decided to try it out by myself, aided with only a bottle of pink Hot Topic hairdye that my boyfriend bought for me, a peg of Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw, and a DIY can-do attitude.

The result: some super fun summer-worthy hair.

Would you guys ever give the dip-dye trend a try? :)

    The pink ombre hair is so pretty. I wish I could try it, but my culinary course tells me I can’t…bummer..!

    I just dip dyed my hair pink last week! And it’s just perfect for this summer. :D I didn’t really have to go to the salon coz dip dying your hair is easy and it’ll cost less if you do it. haha :D

    Thanks guys! :)

    Dana: Nope, it’s not permanent. It fades after many washes.

    Vhing: Yup, it’s super fun and easy to do on your own :)

    Ana: Raw Color in pink

    Yes I did! It won’t be as noticeable if you don’t lighten your hair first. And thanks so much :)
