Thomaston's daughter Lyra had been asking for the pastel-colored dye job that includes long teal locks, and a purple sun shaved on the right side of her hair.

Thomaston received hundreds of responses to the post of her daughter's hair, many in support of allowing Lyra be unique, but some people took to the web to complain that a child shouldn't have her hair dyed, even saying that it was dangerous, TampaBay.com reported.

Thomaston said that she used hair color that will wash out and that she was not harmed during the coloring process, using products from Manic Panic N.Y.C., which bills itself as alternative hair color.
