Lover of all things pink? Maybe you want a pink hairstyle to show off your fun personality. Pink hair is a true statement and a personal favorite hair color of mine.
The reason I love playing with pink hairstyles is – it’s an alternative color that is easier to achieve than some other bright and pastel hair colors.
This is because pink is a warm tone, and most, if not all, natural hair colors tend to have a warm tone in the hair naturally. Meaning your pink hairstyle can avoid too much bleaching to achieve a bright. That is dependent on the starting canvas tone – but you get the idea.
Pink also can fade nicely into a warm or clean tone without clinging to the hair too long.
Pink Hairstyles for over 50s
Pink tones can go very nicely over grey hair for elderly women, as it’s not a harsh tone one fair skin colors, and with age, we tend to lose a little pigment in our skin and hair. The pink hairstyle can add a little warmth and glow up your look.
Pink hairstyles have been popular with many celebrities over 50. Helen Mirren’s pink hairstyle is a great example. If you’re naturally silver/white, it mixes nicely to give the pink hairstyle a clean sparkly hue.
Pink Hairstyles for Guys
So, the color pink, unfortunately, has a “feminine” stigma attached to the color, which is a shame. I don’t believe color has a gender, and pink hairstyles look great on everyone. I love to see people push boundaries, and pink hair on men can also be a “crazy” hairstyle statement.
That aside, I love the look of a buzz cut dyed pink, and it can look even cooler when the roots grow through a little to add a new dimension to the look.
Pink Hairstyles With Braids
An epic way to play with color is to braid hair. You can buy faux pink hair and braid it in to add a pink element to your hair. Also, I think pink braided hairstyles can naturally look SOOO good on people with dark hair.
Braided in the base of the hair, the dark contrasts with the pink look. Pink braided hairstyles can look a little edgy, adding an alternative vibe to your braided hair.
Pastel Pink Hairstyles
Delicate cherry blossom pink hairstyles are a great all-around color for many skin tones. Soft, warm, without being a bright white blonde. Pastel pink hair, in my experience, fades almost completely out, giving the ability to be non-committed to your pink hairstyle.
Looking great on dark skin tones – Nikki Minaj is a great example. All the way to adding a pretty pink hair element to fair skin tones too.
Hot Pink Hair Styles
So, you’re a bit of a hothead? Hot pink is a great tone for those who love bright hair looks. Hot pink hairstyles are truly a statement, showing bold confidence if your style. This color will last longer in the hair and may even fade to a nice medium/pastel pink tone.
Rose Gold Pink Hair
So, there’s a metallic tone that emerged over the last five years with pinks, and that is a rose gold pink. This look was inspired by the rose gold trend we see in our metals and jewelry. It almost has an orange, pink, and gold metallic look. The collection of reflects in the color adds a nice interesting element to pink hairstyles.
Peach Pink Hairstyles
The peach pink tone is a little like the rose gold trend without the metallic element to the look. It tends to have a flatter but brighter appearance. An equal amount of peach and pink mixed in one look gives it an unusual pink hair tone. Great if you like a warm color pallet and can’t decide on what color to go for.
Pink Hair with Natural Roots Color
So, maybe you don’t want to keep topping up your roots all the time and would love a pink color where you manage the pink hair tone only. This is a pink hairstyle that is easier to top up at home in order to maintain your color. Ask your hairstylist to work your natural color into the look at the roots so you don’t have to worry about root top-ups with your pink.
Pink Chunky Hair Color Panels
Recently, color techniques have taken a turn towards the 90s. All the cool kids are going for a nostalgic, chunky blocky hair color technique.
Slices of hot pink hair color or panels of pastel pink can really set off that on-trend vibe. Whatever your pink hair tonal choice, go chunky with your pink hairstyle for something a little different.
Pink Shadow Roots Hair Color
So, this look I feel pairs nicely on blonde hair color or a pastel pink tone. Shadow roots are kind of an effect to add depth or shadow to the top of the hair and can add a really interesting pink flavor to the hair. I love dusky pinks that have a touch of cold or violet in the pink. The glow is beautiful in natural light and super alternative.
Dusky Mink Pink Hair Color
Dusky pink hair colors are a tone that has a cool undertone to pink. This can have almost a mink/mauve/silver edge to it, but I would say the general rule of a dusky pink color is it’s a little muted, with something pinky-cold looking. This color would suit a body wave hair style or a feathered haircut. Speak to your stylist because this tone has so many sides to it. You want to focus on the look that suits your skin tone best.
Lots of Pink Hairstyles to Choose From
Who knew there were so many pink tones? This color is so versatile and crosses into different color families.
You can go warm, cool, matte, sparkly, bright, and soft with your pink. Making it a great choice for those of you who like to experiment. I hope this blog has helped you with your pink hairstyle research, but the most important thing to remember about coloring your hair pink is to have fun with it.
