Who suits pink hair?

Pink has many nuances, so everyone will be able to choose a fashionable shade without exception. The only thing that experts do not advise is to dye your entire hair in a solid pink. It will be difficult to avoid the effect of a wig in this case.But again, the point is in the details: a pale pink hair color is acceptable along the entire length, but it is better to dilute fuchsia with strands of natural color or use this bright tone in ombre coloring. You will find many interesting options for hairstyles for fuchsia hair in this article.

When choosing a suitable shade for dyeing (regardless of color), it is important to consider your type of appearance and skin color. You can read more about how to correctly determine your skin tone here. Fair-skinned people are advised to avoid intense shades, but light pink hair color will be a 100% hit for them.

Ash, pastel or pink blonde will suit girls with peach-pink skin as well.

Swarty-skinned girls can safely choose a brighter palette: rich pigments favorably emphasize tanned skin.

What are pink hair colors?

Most hair dyes, regardless of color, are judged by how durable they are and what is included in the composition. These parameters are mainly due to the presence of ammonia or other components that provide reliable color fixation. As for bright pink and other unusual colors, they are very often found in hair tinting products - for testing or for bright accents.


Resistant dyes open the hair scales during a chemical reaction, and the dye penetrates deep into the hair. This is how L’Oréal Paris’s Colorista permanent paint in Rose Gold works, for example. Thanks to the gel texture, it is easy to apply and does not drip, which makes it easy to color at home.

Shades for pink hair coloring are also in the L'Oréal Paris Préférence line. Try on Pink Platinum online.

Another lasting color in pale pink is Garnier's Color Sensation in Pastel Pink. The composition contains caring ingredients that make hair soft and silky.

It is important to understand that the result of dyeing largely depends on the original tone of the hair. There will be no problems if you have light blond curls or you have already changed your color to blond. Dark hair will require pre-lightening. You can make highlights on individual strands, and then dye them pink.

Ammonia free paints

Ammonia-free dyes are gentle on hair. One of them is Garnier Olia. An oil-based formula that both colors and conditions hair.


Dyeing your hair pink is a rather risky undertaking, and not everyone is ready to decide on such a radical change. Especially for those who want to transform for a few days, they came up with washable products. Now you can become the owner of a beautiful pink ombre or purple strands at least for a day, at least for a week. For example, L'Oréal Paris Colorista Washout products last two to three washes. You can choose a balm, coloring jelly or spray. All of them are great for independent use.

Achieve a more intense color with an extra step using Colorista Effects brightening products. We lighten the hair along the entire length or do an ombre, and then apply any Colorista Washout product.

How to care for pink-dyed hair?
