Crazy? Maybe...

Since she has been able talk, Buttercup has been enamored of pink hair. Yes, pink...really, really pink. She's seriously wanted pink hair with a passion, similar to the way some girls want pierced ears. I thought her longing for pink hair would fade as she got older, but it didn't. At all. Oh, and she wants green eyes, too.


So, last week, we compromised. I said I just couldn't bring myself to do anything that had me bleaching her hair before I even got to the coloring step, but that I would do a semi-permanent hair dye. She got as close to pink as she possibly could with a color called "Raspberry Creme" and we got to work.
At this point, I'm thinking to myself, 'Superman is going to kill me.' She was giddy with excitement.


10 minutes later it was time to rinse out the dye and blow dry her hair. I was still thinking, 'Superman is going to kill me.'



I had to admit, however, she looks pretty darned cute as a redhead and, as you can see by the grin on her face, she loves it. Then I decided that Superman was going to think, as he always does, that his Princess Buttercup is just perfect. And you know what? When he saw her via Skype, he thought just that.

(Oh, please, did you really think I gave her pink hair? Even I couldn't bring myself to allow that (let alone do it!)...at least not yet... Picnik is as close as she's going to get for some time.)

My mom let me do a semipermanent hair dye when I was 12 and I was hooked on hair color for the next 16 years :) I had about every color but green and blue. And it was so fun.

LOL tell her as a woman with green eyes, I always wanted brown. To this day it's my favorite eye color, and I occasionally wear colored contacts to make them brown.

Her hair is nice. I too wanted to have red hair for more years then I can care to count. I just got tired of dying it after 23 years.
