pink hair

This washed-out pastel-rose embraces the trend for soft and delicate hair color shades, yet in a refined, subtle way, which makes it perfect for a 2015 version of one of 2014 hottest looks. For anyone that has gone bright recently, this is a nice way to give your hue a hazy combination of lilac, purple and pink. With a vintage feeling, it is more flower child than corporate conformist, ideal for flouncy dresses and dancing in tall grass. For tips on attaining a similar tint, click notes.

Step: Consult with your colorist about the best way to create a dusky tone, tailored to you. As well as pink and purple, turquoise, peach and violet also look beautiful as faded pastels. If hair is not light, it will need to be pre-lightened first, then toned.

Step: Even when using professional-quality color-saving shampoos and conditioners, these kinds of colors fade fast. One clever way to extend their life in-between salon appointments is to use non-permanent hair colors, like the Manic Panic range, to maintain brightness.

Step: Another good trick is to use refinish dry shampoo in lieu of wet shampooing, to stop the color washing away.
