Why We’re Loving Pastel Pink Hair
Whether you’re dipping your toe into the colouring world for the first time or are a well-established colour chameleon, the pastel pink hair trend is perfect for you. Made popular by celebrities and style icons, it’s the perfect mix of bohemian and edgy. Plus, it’s totally customisable! Whether you want to weave pink hair highlights throughout your entire head or opt for pastel pink ombre hair, with the bulk of the colour concentrated towards your ends, a good colourist will ensure you walk out of the salon with a look that suits your personal style.
Seeing Through Rose Coloured Glasses: How To Get Pastel Pink Hair
If you’re thinking about trying out pastel pink hair, it’s vital to see a professional colourist you trust who has experience with unconventional hues. Depending on how dark your hair is naturally, to achieve pink hair it will likely have to undergo a bleaching process to lift the natural pigments in order for the pastel pink to show through. If done incorrectly, this can be extremely damaging on your strands, leading to dry, brittle hair, so it’s important to ensure your colourist knows what they’re doing. The technique is similar to any other highlighting technique but the boldness of the shade requires much more precision to ensure the final look is seamless and well-blended - certainly a look we want to leave to the pros!
If you’re looking for a more low-maintenance style, pastel pink ombre hair is perfect as the grown-out look of this colouring technique and means fewer visits to your colourist for touch-ups. Your colourist will hand paint individual sections of your hair strategically to create a gradient effect. They should also be able to give you a bespoke blend a shade of pastel pink that will best suit your skin tone.
