Blow dry your hair upside down for extra volume.

Give your fresh pink hair a new volume level by blow-drying your strands with your head upside down. This will ensure that each strand dries moving away from the scalp rather than flat against it, ensuring you have loads of volume at your roots. Be sure to prep your hair with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray to protect your hair from any heat damage.

2. Rooted Medium Pink Lob

This style also is a typical pattern that can be found when searching for pink wigs if you genuinely do not want to change your actual hair color.

3. Edgy Ombré
