Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Pink Hair

What is it with pink hair? Not red hair, nor purple, and not orange and not certainly not streaky pinky-ochre-rouge-orangey-purplish dirty mops either. I’m talking about PINK! It seems every so often, someone gets in on the act, and usually at the start of their career. What’s up with that? Or is it just for a bit of marketing hype and shock value? I wouldn’t be surprised to see Lady Gaga and Katy Perry sporting some soon on covers or in their videos. At least Alecia Beth Moore has an excuse, it’s also her stage name, often stylized as P!nk.

Pink can be found on other famous, big-name artists; such as No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani (she of the midriff, seen here showing off her abs at the Huffington Post) and Cyndi Lauper. Jeffree Star, an internet celebrity from MySpace who has made a name as an androgynous gender-bending model, also went for pink. And there are so many other artists, that’s its impossible to list or show them all. So I’ll errr.. umm… ‘randomly’ choose Skye Sweetnam, whose website loads up showing progress in, wait for it, pink percentages.

Onika Tanya Maraj, or Nicki Minaj as she is better known, is also into pink, but in a big way. Almost every album art she is in has her with pink hair (including Lil Kim’s latest on which she has been decapitated). She must have shares in the pink factory! Her debut solo studio album is even called Pink Friday. My only problem with all this is that while other artists actually have pink or red or purple dyed hair, Nicki Minaj just uses a cheap wig.

  1. Rihanna is in my next colored hair installment – red hair. I tried to keep this one as pink as possible. Skye Sweetnam is somewhere between red and pink too.
