What would adolescence be without a little Manic Panic experimentation? But how many of carry the wild color over into adulthood? Lily Allen appears to have had a little fun with some hair dye herself (could it be Manic Panic’s Cotton Candy Pink?) before the Glamour Women of The Year Awards. Of course, she’s a musician so her statute of limitations for crazy dye jobs is a little longer than most of us. But it gets us thinking Tell us: Would you dye your hair hot pink like Lily?

Maybe streaks of pink like Rachel McAdams once had.

Martha on

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! It sooooooooo makes you look like some sort of doll or Barbie. It looks not natural and NOT good. I soooo would not.

Lucy on

NO. The blonde was OK, but seriously bubblegum pink?!? Maybe the blonde dye ran into her brain …



Leslie on

Absolutely!! I get so bored with just different shades of brown to choose from. I’ve been Royal Blue for 6 months, pink is my next color!

♥ rosie on

Unless I wanted to look like a clown, no I would never dye my hair pink like Lily.



Ana on

Lol…nope I would not, maybe strkies on pink or the tips pink but no the whole thing…she just looks freaky, plus not naturall at all. I do like her, I dont even remember the name of it, but it was the only song I’ve ever heard from her. Anyway that is my point of view, thanks for reading.


beth on

I love it, IMHO it looks better than the blonde she had before this. I may be a bit biased though since my hair is currently pink (a lot darker than Lily’s though). Of course, my mother-in-law thinks I’ve lost my mind…but my kids love it!

Justice on

Sure, she looks great in it. I’ve done the back of my hair pink, but not the whole thing. Would love to try it though.

Sophie on

In theory, yeah I would, the colour is really pretty! But I also don’t want to damage my hair with dye.

K* on

I dont want to get on my high horse and preach but seriously people, its hair. Why does having pink hair automatically make people think your an idiot or a sleaze? I’ve been dying my hair since I was 13 years old, Im 23, married to a sailor in the navy, a full-time art student, and I have manic panic hot hot pink hair. If any of you are the kind of people who give dirty looks to people with odd colored hair, think again, its just hair and it isnt hurting you.

L on

heck no

Rebecca on

Of course not! I’d rather not look like a troll!

Camille on


Vonny on

it is such a fun look.

Anna on

I would do more along the lines of the under layer of pink that Avril Lavigne had dyed her hair to.

Anthea on

NO thank you.

ajoberry on

Well, I’ve stumbled my way into my 30’s so probably not. However, if I were younger, and had a similiar career path as her, I would definintely go for it!

Plus, I think she looks better as a ‘pink’ than a blonde.

Kayla on

dude, I don’t think I would EVER be brave enough to full out dye my hair pink, but I do think it looks soooo amazing on Lily Allen. It’s really cute & fun!

rowaida on

Lindsay on

wH@t p@Rt 0F dA 9@M3 iz dAt????

Angelica on

I wouldnt dye my whole head pink but maybe streaks like Avril Lavinge had b/c it looked so cool on her!!!!!!!

Monkey on

Love it. Looks fab. My hair is currently teal. It’s only hair and it grows back. Live it up and have fun with it.

sdtmn on

I like natural hair colors, the hot pink i think is just too much.

Sheila on

I don’t think so, unless my Halloween costume is Stephanie from “Lazy Town”

Steph on

I totally love her hair!! I hate the fact that most people judge you if you have the guts to be different. I would totally dye my have pink. My hair currently streaked black, fire engine red and platnium blonde. AND I LOVE IT!!! My hair has been evey colour under the sun because i hate normal and boring!

becka on

of course I love the color. its so perfect on her.

Addison on

She looks AMAZING with PINK hair !!!!!!!! she looks like a cute doll !!!!!!11

Addison on

hi !Addison …..here……..! Lily looks smokin hot and cute with the PINK HAIR !!!!!!!! She looks like a doll with it ! lol . hehe !!!!!!!

J on

i thought it was a wig. and of course i couldn’t do it, i don’t have the guts to pull it off. it looks great on some people, though.

j on

Seriously,girls be careful buy a wig or something but don’t damage your natural hair with that kind of color Lily is wealthy she can afford good extensions,wigs…She can easily go back to a natural haircolor.
Having healthy hair is the most important and difficult to achieve if you always change your haircolor.I think pink hair is fun for a day,a week or a month but not for a long period.

Poop Sandwich on

No, not ME personally, but Lily looks absolutely adorable!

Joelle on

It would be a disaster on me, but I think it looks really cute on her! Lilly Allen is one the best female musicians out there today… who cares about her hair color?

Velma on

Though I’d never consider it, I feel that Gwen Stefani is the only who could pull off a look such as this..

Sass on

I love her hair..I used to have my hair pink like that with black underneath and i loved it. It makes you stand out from all the other girls. I would so do it again!!

Kim v on

I love her pink hair and if I thought it would go with my skin tone, I would definitely want to try it myself. However, I would never wear that tragic dress! Poor Bambi. :(

ursula on

yes absolutley I think it does’nt suit lily but I love pink actully I’ve been thinking I want to dye pink streaks in my hair! wwaahhoo I LOVE PINK! Its the best colour I have ever seen! Pink rules! I respect lily for doing something different than some boring celebs that put exctentions in there hair and dye their hair brown or blonde sooooooo boring! Do somthing different be someone!

Melly on

Yeah, i was going to do it anyways, i’ve dyed my hair pink before it was reli nice
my hair coulor has been (dyed)
bleach x2
black with beached coontails
black and bleached (again)
black and pink, blue, purpule and some more (in the same hair
black andpink <:

Kristina on

so badass.

Colourfull on

Of course…. But then again I was dying my hair diffrent colours before she did this…. I think its great that someone famous is actually doing somthing they want to do rather then just fitting into this little moled

Jenna on

Lol, I don’t care if it looks natural! I’d love to dye my hair pink (but I don’t think I’d have the guts to do it). It looked really nice on Lily Allen.

Lauren on

of course, im thinkin about dyeing my hair pink with manic panics cotton candy pink hair dye cuz its only semi permenant anywayz =]

Sharon Rose on

I love that little mention about Manic Panic! LOL, I just so happen to have Vampire Red! Pink is so NOT my colour (to be honest, I detest it)! But it’s alright for others. But yeah, I’m not against the whole dying your hair thang. I agree with whoever said ‘It’s only hair. It’ll grow out!’ That’s so true. Not to mention if you’re not content with the colour, you can always fix it! But that’s just my opinion! ~ <3 Manic Panic fan!

Lily on

i want them done lyke in the next week!!!!

Roni on

I already have dyed my hair bubble gum pink before and I loved it!! and p.s. i was not going for a natural look and im willing to bet she wasnt either!

Lauren on

Of course I would, if I didn’t have a job I had to keep my hair would be many different colors.
Oh, and who says clowns aren’t sexy?

Poppy Scott on

People should be more cautious when using hair dye because some chemicals used in the dyeing process are cancerous.’;-

Nursery Decoration · on

those hair dyes that are coming from coal tar are dangerous and often causes allergies ‘

Juel on

I would definitely dye my hair this pink!
I am a 20 year old artist and love colors!
I dyed my hair platinum last night just so I could put pretty colors in my hair!
I will always be a child at heart!

Siobhan on

hahahaha I’m loving all the negative comments about dying hair unnatural colours. My hair was Bright red for 10 months and has been a vibrant blue for 2 months, and haters just make it even more worth it.
