EJ's got a brand new look! Yep, that is dye on the ends of her hair. Yep, my 6-year-old looks a little punk rock. She loves it and so do I!
EJ has been obsessed with dying her ends pink ever since seeing photos of our friends Brookelyn and Norah with their aqua and purple ends. Very cool! If you are as interested as EJ was in recreating this look, check out this awesome step-by-step tutorial at Vintage Sunshine.
Luckily for us, Alyson (Brookelyn's momma, tutorial & hair diva, Vintage Sunshine creator) offered to help this momma out and do the dying process for us (and Norah's momma donated the pink dye to the cause...thanks Karri!)
First step, bleach out some of the black hair so the dye would show. This is the step that tested EJ's patience a little (it takes time with that dark of hair), but as soon as she saw the light ends, the excitement was back!
The final result is super cute! Her hair is both pink and orange (color variation because her hair never truly went all blond) and it's such a cute look. The orange and pink look really good together and she she was so excited to show all her friends today at summer school.
I know it's kind of a big girl look, but it's summer and it's fun. I won't give in on pierced ears yet, so I have to give a little somewhere, right? Besides....look at that smile!
