3 Dreamy Ways to Wear Pink Hair

Colour Trends

With celebrities like Lucy Hale, Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Roberts all recently rocking a pink hue for Coachella season, it’s obvious that the millennial hair color du jour is going nowhere. The best thing about the trend is that you don’t have to have a certain style to pull it off; pink can be worn as an ultra-striking fuchsia shade or pared down to a softer pastel tone. Here are three of the coolest ways to try the look for SS18…


Hidden Pink Hues

If you’re going for an all-over shade of magenta or candyfloss, pink hair becomes a big statement. Consider instead trying the hidden hair color trend, which sees a lightener (if you’re brunette) and your pink tone painted through the lower layers, so the color simply peeks through as you move. A semi-permanent product, like Color Fresh CREATE in High Magenta, makes this look even more foolproof, as it can be custom-blended to your perfect shade. Think, any tone from vivid fuchsia to pale macaron pink.

Rose Quartz Crop

A cotton candy hue looks fresh when paired with a bob or an edgy pixie crop – and even more so when your short ‘do features texture-building dark roots with lighter tips. Get the look by asking your hairdresser to mix up a blush tone using Koleston Perfect or, if your hair is slightly porous, a demi-permanent shade of Color Touch. Whichever formula you go with, be sure to team it with a bond-strengthening treatment. WellaPlex is the perfect pick, as it actually reconstructs hair throughout the color process.

Rose Gold Glow

For hair that makes all skin tones glow, blend pinks with metallic copper shades or subtle hints of gold. This creates a soft, dreamy, rose gold finish that’s super-Instagrammable. Rosy manes like this work best with an extra dose of shine, so be sure to lock the vibrancy down for longer with INVIGO Color Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.
