The prettiest pastel pink hair inspiration from Instagram

Live your summer through rose-tinted tresses. 

From colourful mermaid hair to edgy bleached tones – having bold, bright tresses has been one of the hottest trends over the past few seasons. And with no signs of it going away anytime soon, we thought we’d make a list of our favourite takes on the pastel pink hair look.

Bold enough to make an impact, but subtle enough for everyday wear, pastel pink hues are perfect for ladies looking to inject some frivolous romance into their style. So, if you’re thinking of embracing the pastel pink hair trend this summer, check out these super cute looks we’ve found on Instagram!
