Tips For Getting Pink Hair


If you're actually keeping track of the fashion trends in the year 2012, you may have seen your favorite celebrities, singers and actresses sporting opaque colored hairstyles. More and more people are trying bold and neon colors to make a statement. This may just be the resurrection of the psychedelic era. 

If you are bold enough to sport this new trend, then you can try pink hair. It's striking but it still maintains to have a tiny hint of innocence. You will be sweet and stylish with pink hair. So if you want to try a new look for the season, read the following tips that may help you:

Step 1

Before changing your hair color to pink, you have to make sure that your hair is healthy and almost free from damage. Pink hair will not look good if your hair is dry, limp and damaged. The solution? Have your ends trimmed first, apply a hair conditioning treatment and keep your hair hydrated before dyeing it to pink.

Step 2

Take note that the color pink will not be visible for dark hair. So if you really want a distinct pink hair, consider bleaching your hair first. This may be a crucial and risky process, so it will not hurt if you consult a professional hairstylist and have him/her lighten your hair. For pink hair to be visible, you need to have a white or a light blonde base.

Step 3

If you don't want to take a huge risk, you can buy a pink hair wig that is made of authentic human hair. You can also consider buying synthetic hair but you will look like a mannequin or worse, a clown if you try it. On the other hand, a wig made up of human hair looks softer and even if your hair is pink, you will not look too over the top.

Step 4

You can also try having pink hair extensions or streaks. If you are not that outrageous, you can still wear pink hair with the help of extensions. There are a lot of clip-on extensions which are a lot cheaper than weaves or sewn extensions, so try looking for them in drugstores or beauty retail outlets. 

Step 5

The shade and amount of pink in your hair should also be in line with your age. If you're sixteen, you can sport hot or electric pink hair. If you're in your twenties then you should consider just a subtle amount of pink in your hair. Remember that you have to go to work. You need to look professional and polished no matter what line of work you are in. Moreover, do not attempt to dye your hair pink when you reach your 30s and 40s. It's pretty much self-explanatory. 


If you're planning to dye your hair pink, choose chemicals that are not harsh to the hair, eyes, scalp and skin. Some Japanese products are more delicate so try researching for good brands. You can also try Manic Panic products and see if they have pink hair dyes that range from semi-permanent or permanent.
