yes...once they are...I would say a teenager....And it would depend....I was in 7th grade and got my first perm....then I was in 8th or 9th when I dyed it for the first time...
As for pink, blue, purple...I dont think I'd want them to do ALL of their hair but a strip or chunk or whatever SURE...and if it was all of their hair I'd have to think on it....if it was temp...sure...probably

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
Yeah why not? It's just hair..
My mom was pretty cool when it came to my hairstyles and I had some crazy ones.
I've let my kids have different temporary colors, not anything permanent yet. Bri has had blue strips in hers, and the boys have had green in theirs before. All the boys have had mohawks also. Like shaved completely on the sides and 4-5 inches tall mohawks, not Faux-hawks.
It doesn't bother me, it's just a form of expression. SO on the other hand is more of a conform to society's views type person when it comes to the kids' appearances, and doesn't like the "crazy" cuts and colors..
DS 8 has a mohawk. I actually would like him to grow it out now but he LOVES it. Ah well...
As for color when she is in high school I am certainly open to talk about it. I had some serious crazy hair in high school. At one point I had all different braids all different colors. Cool until I got sick of the braids and unbraided them into a mass of brown/green/grayish fugly Crazy kid.
I guess I would encourage strips instead of her whole head
Hmmm probably. My 15 year old wanted to put streaks of blue in his hair last year but the school had a policy against it. I'm actually considering putting purple streaks in my own hair, something I've always wanted to do but was too concerned about what others think. Now that I'm in my 30's....well after 6 kiddos it doesn't much matter what people think lol

I'm totally open to it. I remember bleaching my hair when I was 13 and my mom getting mad about it. Twenty years later I still don't understand what the big deal was I was a very good girl/teen so I know it's not a precursor to bad behavior.
I'd say I would want my kids to be in grade 7 or older to color their hair as far as age goes, but they all have beautifull light blonde hair, so anything they do to it color wise is not going to make it nicer, so no one is going to any time soon. As far as bright colors, hair is hair, it's not permanent, I would be fine with it.
yup - i agree with all of these posts. its just hair and i think maybe high school is a good age to experiment --- as long as it is not permanent because most schools will not allow crazy hair colors/styles (used to work for school district).
