Pastel hair colors are a fun way to switch up your look by adding in a burst of color. It can also be a low-commitment option and allows you to opt for some colorful highlights or ombré tones for a subtle effect, or go for something really bold like an all-over color shade. But whatever you decide, we are totally into this look and just love how pastel shades are super feminine and airy and are always a trendy hair color option that can work on a variety of hair types and textures.
Whether you want to try out a light green, purple or pink, we’ve got options for you! Read on to discover 15 of our favorite pastel hair colors ideas that might just inspire you to brighten up this year:
Lighten Up with these 15 Pastel Hair Colors
1. Rose Gold Roots
Add just a touch of rose gold to your strands by dyeing just your roots. This look works perfectly with an easy top knot or dressed up in a fancier style. It’s one of those versatile hair color ideas that can blend in when you need it to or stand out when you’re ready to have some fun!
2. Light Purple
This luminescent shade of purple is on the glowy side of pastel hair colors and it’s one of our favorite options. Keep your color vibrant and smooth by incorporating Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Shampoo and Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Conditioner into your regular routine.
3. Pink and Orange
Why settle for one pastel hair color when you can go for two? Mix pink and orange for a light and flirty look. Pink and orange blend together for a perfectly fun pastel look!
4. Pink Ombré
Pink is never a bad idea. Give the classic ombré style a twist by opting for a bright shade of pink instead of the usual blonde.
6. Baby Pink
Soften your curls with a light hue of baby pink hair color. This soft baby pink hue is subtle enough to complement your look without taking over completely!
7. Bright Pink
Alternatively, consider a vibrant shade of bright pink as a bold way to lighten up your strands. This bubblegum pink color is a beautiful contrast to any skin tone.
Why stop at one color when you can spring for two? Purple and pink are a match made in heaven and we can’t get enough of this style.
9. Peach Tones
Go pretty in peach with a color that will accentuate your style. We especially love this ‘pop’ of color on space buns.
10. Sea Green
Evoke some serious sea vibes with this light green hue. A relaxing color, you can opt for an all-over shade of green or some subtle highlights. We’ve seen many iterations of green hair making their way amongst the street style scene. From forest green to lime (and more!), one thing is for sure: Green hair is going strong and reigning this spring. Opt for a color that blends with your natural tones to bring out your facial features and skin tone.
Pink hair is one trend that’s not going away anytime soon. We love the pastel version with its focus on lighter shades of bubblegum pink and subtle rose gold hues. Wear this all over your hair, or opt for a subtle highlighting effect. Whatever you decide, you can’t go wrong with pink hair!
12. Orange Tips
You don’t have to go for an all-over look to experiment with color. Opt to color your tips or a few strands to play with a new shade. We love how orange hair looks fierce on platinum blonde hair, resulting in an unexpected pop of color.
13. Subtle Tips
We have also been loving seeing the pastel hair intermixed with some of our favorite hairstyles. This cool braided hairstyle lets you showcase your awesome style with the gorgeous combination of color that’s bound to turn heads.
While the gray hair color trend is going strong, you might want something a little subtler for spring. We suggest this cool lilac: A gorgeous transitional shade for blondes, we love how this hue pops against lighter skintones.
15. Two-Toned Color
Go for the best of both worlds with your hair color by wearing two tones. You can either opt for two totally different shades or go for complementary hues, like pink and purple. This mermaid mix of blue, purple and green is definitely a fun way to wear this look.
