Wear it pink… because pink ombre isn’t just a colour, it’s an attitude! 

Love pink hair? Whether you’re a bubblegum pink gal, pastel fashionista or promoting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, taking the plunge to put these colours into your hair can still seem a little daunting. But instead of committing to a bold, all-over hue, we suggest you consider trying the next best thing: pink ombre hair (Emma Mackey of Sex Education fame, Perrie Edwards and Kandee Johnson are already major fans).

Whether you choose to use permanent dye or temporary hair colour, pink ombre hair can be a fun way to look cool. Just take a look at all the pink ombre looks we’re loving. Which one do you love the most?

The All Things Hair team have been hooked to Netflix’s latest show Sex Education. Mostly because of Emma Mackey (AKA Maeve) and her pink ombre hair, tbh. We just love the punk-rock undertones to her style and ombre hair.

Dove Colour Care Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Dying to try pink ombre hair? Coloured manes may seem tricky to maintain, but using a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for colour-treated hair, like the Dove Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner, will make maintenance a breeze!

Now, if you really want to make a stylish impact with your pink ombre hair choice, try working in a mixture of dark and light pinks hues, for a unique shade that looks sweet enough to eat.

Rest assured, when you pair your surreal-looking shade with a wavy hairstyle, you’ll turn more than a few heads. Credit: @evalam_

Want to rock a slightly more grown-up version of pink ombre hair? Why not jazz up your natural colour with pretty rose underlights?

By working the colour into the ends and only on the under layers of your hair, you’ll be channelling a ‘business at the front, party at the back’ vibe that’s suitable for work and play! Credit: @lori.l.hair

8. Barely-there rose gold ombre

Can you spot the pink in this ‘do? Don’t worry, it took us a while to catch the barely-there rose gold hues, too!

We love how the warm touches of metallic ombre are worked into this lady’s milky blonde waves. It may be subtle, but you can’t deny it still makes a big impact, especially with the addition of braidsCredit: @constancerobbins

9. Black hair with pink ombre hair

Have you ever considered dyeing your black hair pink? If not, we’re sure that this Instagram snap will have you rushing to the salon.

Keeping the roots dark helps to anchor lighter hues (not to mention it’ll make your colour a bit easier to maintain), with the warmer pastel hues around your face working to brighten up your complexion, too! Credit: @dheandranicolette

10. Peach and pink ombre

Feel like tapping into two amazing hair colour trends at once? Then why not try working in some peachy hues to your look for a lovely, fruity twist?

Soft peach tones perfectly complement pink ombre hair, so if you love sorbet-inspired pastels, this look is definitely for you. And the best part? It looks great for both twisted updos and on shorter hair lengths, too. Credit: @lockshanna

11. Two-tone pink

If the other looks have been a little too subtle for your taste, then think about opting for a punk-inspired two-tone look instead. This look works especially well with similar shades like this vibrant purple, as the contrast will make the pink look even bolder.

Whether you choose to style in an everyday ponytail or in a more elaborate style, we promise: you will never look boring again! So, how will you wear it?

12. Short pink ombre hair

Ombre on short hair? Yes, you heard us correctly. Contrary to popular belief, these two do go together! So don’t worry about the length of your short crop, as you can still rock pink ombre hair in style.

Just take a leaf out of this street styler’s book and work your intense pinks slightly closer to your roots and fade into lighter tips.

13. Fiery pink ombre tips

What better way to show off your lengthy locks than with these fiery magenta tips? Bleach the tips of your Rapunzel-like mane and work your chosen pink ombre hue. This small amount of colour will give a high impact finish and add plenty of edge to your signature look! Credit@xinsomniax

14. Hot fuchsia

Warning: this neon pink ombre look isn’t for the faint-hearted! Bright, vibrant and fierce, this fuchsia shade perfectly flatters natural brunettes with medium to dark skin tones.

However, if you’re not a natural brunette, the trick is to keep your roots grungy and dark, as not only will this help make your pink really come to life, but it’ll add depth and richness to your overall look, too. Credit: @rosacalyx
