Apparently fake tan is perfectly safe to use.
With hair dye, you just need to be careful as the colour probably won't come out as you would expect - even if its the same hair dye you have used for years. A lot of salons won't use a full head permanent colour on pregnant woman but they will do highlights or low lights. This is not only because of the colour variation you get when using hair dye but also because you will find that using a full head colour will put a lot of stress on your hair and can cause it to fall out more than normal - don't worry, you won't end up bald or anything but you will find that it won't leave your hair in very good condition at all.
Speaking from the voice of experience on that - I used the same hair dye and colour I've always used when I was 14 weeks pregnant and my hair went practically ginger and every time I brushed it I found that it was just falling out and breaking! I've recently had low lights put in though and that's been fine.
