There is a new exclusive club in town. We have yet to find a clubhouse (we’re hunting), but membership is limited. The requirement? A full head of pink hair. I’m a recent convert myself, and while our members consist of mostly women, we’re open to adding a few pink-haired gentleguys to keep Mr. Sam McKnight [32] company.

Bright hair only appears every so often in day-to-day life, and mainly in the “alternative” crowd. But bold-hued heads have had a consistent presence in the Japanese cosplay community and in the wonderful world of Tumblr (just search “bright hair,” “dyed hair,” or the color of your choice + hair— beware of the NSFW stuff). And now, with taste-the-rainbow tresses appearing on the 2013 runways of Theyskens’ Theory, Chanel resort, and Givenchy Fall 2013, and on lots of models and It girls (hello Charlotte [25-27] and Kate [1-5]), it seems like a mass-market resurgence is in order.

You may have heard that blondes have more fun, but you guys haven’t hung out with us yet.

    I had pink hair for a while in 2011, Abbey Lee made me do it of course. I am a brunette and was quite scared that it wouldn't turn out well... But I went and did the whole thing in my bathtub anyway, and ended up really liking it. I did feel that half of the stuff in my closet didn't look good with it though... Anyhow, here's a pic!

    I've had pink hair quite a few times and have always loved it! You can see a pic on my Contact page on my blog below!Think I'm going to have to go pink again soon actually.

    Ondria Hardin's hair in her first pic is amazing. That color!! If I knew it would look good on me, I'd almost dare to do it. Really fun post!

    How did you forget about Chris Benz?

    Such a pretty colour. Perhaps the only colour that seems to get more beautiful as it fades.

    It does look amazing, but it seems like something for the 25 and under set...or am I wrong?
