The past two years were probably the glory years of pastel hair. I no longer just see it on Tumblr or Instagram. It's everywhere. Thanks to Manic Panic hair dye, everybody can have the hair they've always wanted when they were just Care Bears-obsessed five-year-old kids. To some girls, pastel is a way of life.

Dyeing your hair a colour as pale as pastel is also no joke. Especially when you're born with dark hair. The dreaded growing roots. Anybody who has been through this will know what I'm talking about. I tried dyeing my hair silver early this year but I got an awful allergy that lasted months instead. So I just can't help but envy these other beautiful tattooed women with hair straight out of unicorn land.

If you're not really into all this bubblegum pop thing with hair, you can still have fun with monochrome colours—go with hues like grey, silver, ash blonde, or platinum white. Singer Melanie Martinez mixed it up a bit with silver and black.

But when the fun is over and your boring, old colour starts to grow back, you don't have to hurry and dye those roots asap. Let them grow. Who knows, they might actually look great together.

Most girls go with pastel pink, though. A reminiscence of childhood and the typical obsession of little kids with pink. I know I wanted bright pink hair myself when I was five.

Go brutal with pastel goth! Pastel goth is a fairly new subculture where the kawaii/harajuku style is blended with gothic elements.

Some prefer to tone the hues down.

While some like it bright or ombre.
