Have you been looking for something different to do with your hair? Are you looking to try out a fun new hairstyle that you have never tried before?
If this sounds like you, you should consider dying your hair a different color. And, if you want something bold or something that will give you a huge change to your look, you should think about dying your hair pink!
Bold and colorful hair dye has been trendy recently with many people dying their hair colors like red, blue, and purple. You may have seen this on social media as many people on TikTok have been posting their hair transformations.
Also, a lot of celebrities are following along with this trend, such as Dua Lipa, who did pink hair this summer.
This is a big part of the Barbiecore trend, which incorporates the iconic hot pink Barbie color into just about everything!
So, if you have been thinking about ways that you can change your hair that will give you a bold and fun new hair look, pink is the perfect hair color for you.
Things to Consider Before Dying Your Hair Pink:
Before you actually dye your hair pink, there will be some things you will want to consider first:
- Do you want highlights or do you want to color your entire head? Highlights can be trickier to place than allover color, but cause less damage to your hair.
- Also, do you want to combine pink with any other colors? This can be tricky as well but can give a beautiful dimensional effect to your hair.
- And, what kind of pink are you trying to go for? Lighter pinks will require your underlying hair to be bleached to a lighter shade, which may mean more damage.
These are all really important questions that you will want to ask yourself before you actually dye your hair. (And as always, if you’re at all unsure about DIY, always go to a salon for color!)
And, don’t worry if you have light or dark hair because there are many different ways that you can dye your hair to get the perfect pink shade that you want.
There are many different ways that you can incorporate pink into a fun new hairstyle, so I have put together this list of 17 gorgeous pink hair ideas to help you find the perfect pink hair look for you!
Pink Hair Highlights
1. Strawberry Shortcake Highlights
If you have light hair and want to do some pink highlights, I highly recommend going for strawberry shortcake highlights.
If you are not sure what strawberry shortcake highlights are, they are basically light pink highlights added to light hair like blonde to give you a subtle, but gorgeous pink hair look.
