  • Highlights are safer, because they don't sit on your scalp. It's best to avoid dyeing your hair in the first trimester, and the fumes should always be avoided.

  • I'd wait until after your first trimester. After that, you're good to pretty much do what you want. The only recourse being that because of your hormones the colors may not turn out right. Its never happened to me, but I know some its happened to.

  • I have been told by my nurse that there isnt any proven studies shown to interact with your pregnancy if you dye or highlight you hair.
