Looking for a fun way to spice up your look just in time for spring and summer? Try pink hair!

If you’ve never dyed your hair a color that isn’t natural, pink might feel a bit intimidating, but there are a lot of different shades, styles, and ways you can wear pink hair without drawing too much attention to yourself. On the other hand, if you’re looking to turn a few heads, there are a lot of options for you too!

You might have noticed that a LOT of people are dying their hair pink lately. If you’re wondering why, it turns out there are a lot of reasons. Pink is the color of the breast cancer awareness ribbon, so some women dye their hair pink to show their support for survivors and current patients alike. Mostly, though, pink is a fun color that can brighten your mood, which is definitely something we all need with the state that the world is in right now! Because there are so many different shades of pink, pink hair looks good on everybody–you just have to find the right shade and style for you!

In this post, we’re going to break down different ways to wear your hair pink, ranging from subtle to NOT so subtle. Keep in mind that if you have dark hair, you’ll absolutely have to go lighter BEFORE making the pink transition. When in doubt, consult with a professional stylist so that you can get the absolute best results.

SUBTLE: Pink Underneath

Did you know there’s a hack for girls who want to dye their hair a crazy color without showing it off to the world? Keep your natural color visible by only dying the bottom layer of your hair pink. If you want to make sure it stays subtle, consider sticking to pale shades, like Rose Quartz, Dusty Rose, Pastel Pink. The dyed underneath style will only be noticeable if you decide to wear your hair up, so it’s perfectly acceptable in the workplace!

A LITTLE LESS SUBTLE: Pink Ombre/Pink Highlights

Another way you can (kind of) keep your natural hair color is to incorporate a pink ombre/highlights look, which will be most noticeable at the bottom of your strands and less so at the roots. You can stick to one of the subtle colors we mentioned above or get a little bolder with shades like Bubblegum, Copper Rose, or Metallic Pink.

NOT-SO-SUBTLE: Pink all over!

Are ombre and highlights not over-the-top enough for you? We hear you. Go all out and dye your whole head! (Again, consult a stylist to make any big changes so that you don’t have any post-dye regrets.) You can pick a bright, Hot Pink shade or even incorporate lots of different shades of pink into one look. Mermaid hair has become VERY popular, even among celebrities, and it’s a look we're sure you can pull off too!

No matter why or how you want to dye your hair pink, we fully support you and think you’re going to absolutely rock it! We hope our suggestions have given you some good ideas; we think you’re going to look incredible.
