Why do so many young women dye some of their hair pink?

    Why is any hairstyle popular? Is pink hair any more or less ridiculous than the 50s beehives or the big 80s hair? If you're young and have hair in the first place you may as well have fun with it. Plenty of time to go straight laced when you're older.

    Face tattoos on the other hand take me straight into 'get off my lawn' mode.

    The only thing that truly offends young people is speaking to them in public.

    At our bluegrass festival in July, a group of tweeners put 2 liter pop bottles on their heads and combed their hair up and over and ponytailed it there. Sort of the cone head look.

    My hair wasn’t long enough to do it

    Hairstyles absolutely have never bothered me. It can always be cut and will grow back.

    Certainly not just young people... cargo shorts, bowling shirts, pork pie hats anyone?

    My daughter has friends who change their hair color on what seems like a weekly basis. They talk about using Kool-aid to do it. I don't know if that means literally using the colored sugary drink, or if it's teen-code for some brand/type of coloring. She's got one friend who has a droopy afro that extends literally 10 inches off his head.

    When I was dating my wife she had bleached blond hair at first. She decided she wanted to dye it black. She did it herself. Unfortunately it came out sapphire blue. It looked awesome to me, and once the initial shock wore off, she rocked it for several months until she decided to pay a pro some serious bucks to "fix" it back to her normal light brown. I thought the blue looked really good on her.

    It don't make me no nevermind what them kids do with their hair. All her friends are good kids. Is it weird to this 55 year old balding chubby uncool step-dad? Yeah, but so what. They're not hurting anyone or disrespecting anyone.

    Last time I got my hair cut I learned a new term.. skin fade.

    It's when you shave your head and then get a tattoo on the side of your head. Then you grow your hair back in, and then shave it differentially so the tatoo looks like it's fading into the hair.

    This seems ridiculous but enough people are doing it that the hair cut place was advertising they know how to fade the hair properly.

    I don't know.. since this forum is mostly old men... Everyone knows when old men are dying their hair. It never looks good/real. You might as well dye your hair blue or red or something and just own it. Maybe that's what the older women are doing. Why dye it blond or a bad shade of brown and try to hide something? Why not go straight for fire truck red?

    I constantly joke with my Father in Law. I have some gray mixed in my hair. He's 95% gray, as is my dad. Well my Father in Law's older brother is 75 or so. He doesn't have a single gray. His hair is like an odd shade of orangey brown. I'm the only one in the family who seems to notice he's dying his hair badly.

    Better for kids to dye their hair or do odd hairstyles than vape or smoke or start shooting stuff into their veins.

    Geez, how is this even a thing nowadays?

    I colored my hair red, blue, green, it's pretty conventional actually. My kids are like dear old dad. Oh I have man bun too, internet fight me :D

    If you think the color dyed hair is popular now, you should have been there in 2010 ;). The real trend over the last couple years is girls dying their hair gray, which I thought was weird at first but now I think is kinda neat.

    Some of it looks very cool. I like the one where the top/outside of the hair is their "normal" color, and the underside is blue or red/pink.

    But I like some of the striped ones too.

    Really, it probably just depends on the girl. Some women look good in (or out of) anything.

    Ah, yes...the wonderful illogical conformity of nonconformity. Because it makes them different...but it doesn't...but they think it does...but it doesn't...:confused:
