on-a-cerebral-highway asked: hi, i love your blogs! i recently cut my hair very short in order to get rid of all the unhealthy parts. now that i've done this, i really want to color it. preferably a pastel pink. i was wondering if you could give me step by step instructions on how to achieve my goal with minimal hair damage? including suggested products, time frames, etc. thanks!!

Hi, glad to know you’re ready to experiment with your hair. 

Unfortunately, I am not a stylist,nor am I google or a watch. I am also not you so I have no idea as to the condition of your hair. This means that no i can’t give you step-by-step instructions, including suggested products, or time frames on how to dye your hair.

You should look on youtube. there are tons of tutorials from professionals and DIYers.

Listen, not trying to be rude about it, but if you want to do your hair at home, why not invest time and energy in actually researching how to do what it is you want done instead of looking for someone to hold your hand.

If it’s too much for you to put an in an effort, then go to the salon and pay a professional to do it.

I’m glad you’re getting inspiration from the blog, but really.

thepsychoticfuckingbiotic asked: Do you know of any blogs for brown people (I'm southeast and East Asian) with pastel hair? Thank you! :)

Hi! I’ve been trying to find one for a while or at the very least get someone to start a blog, but no one’s taken any interest it seems. 

You should start one! I’ll definitely promote it for you to my followers!

Sort of off topic but to anyone out there who wants to see any ethnic specific blog of pastel hair colors, fashion, makeup, whatever here’s my advice:

if you can’t find one (or can’t find one you like) create your own! That’s the exact way PBP came to be. I couldn’t find any pictures of black girls with pastel hair, so I went on an image hunt and made a blog. 

Sounds cliche but, blog what you want to see. You don’t have to rely on other people to provide representation. If you can find it, great, but don’t sit around waiting for it. 

For Brown/Southeast/East Asian babes who are interested in starting a blog of Brown pastel beauties here’s a few images to get you started (remember to reblog directly or credit the website you get your photos from)

It’s pretty difficult to find brown girls with pastel hair, but never underestimate the power of a call for submissions. I did some digging and found some East Asian pastel lovelies (loving this purple!):

And don’t forget blonde is a pastel too:

Those are just a few examples so I’ll take off the training wheels and it’s now up to you (or whoever wants) to create a Desi/brown.east asian girls with pastel hair blog. :)
