Pink Hair Shades to Get on Your Next Salon Visit

Get tickled pink with these irresistible hues!

What’s not to love about pink hair? It comes in various shades ranging from sweet and delicate to bold and feisty. Whether you’re wearing this color as part of your creative, cosplay look or as a way to switch up your style, one thing is for sure: you are going to stand out.

But before you get the pink hair of your dreams, let your stylist assess your hair to determine if it can take an intensive dye job. Dark, Asian hair needs several rounds of bleach for a color like pink to come through. If your hair is already dry and damaged to begin with, you may need to hit pause on your hair transformation.

You also need to consider the maintenance required for bleached hair. After some time, you’ll deal with brassy tones and discoloration, and your hair will also get dry. But don’t worry! We’ve got the right products and tips to help you with aftercare.

So, put your doubts aside and get ready to rock pink hair. Here are gorgeous pegs to inspire you.
