Everyone from celebrities to street-style stars and beauty bloggers have been thinking pink lately. Pink tresses of all shades have been spotted on red carpets, runways and all over Instagram. From rose-gold bobs to hot-pink beach waves, the trend is popping up in an array of styles and shades. Thankfully, if you want to get in on the trend, there are lots of options in your local drugstore that can give you the pink hair of your dreams. While some pink hair dyes work best on pre-lightened or naturally blond hair, that doesn’t mean brunettes can’t get in on the fun. Read on for tips and tricks on how to get a professional-looking pink mane as well as a breakdown of all the L’Oréal Paris products on the market that can give you glistening rose-hued hair.
If you want a permanent rose-gold mane, try:
If you want long-wearing, luminous colour, your best bet is L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference: The formula lasts up to eight weeks and lets you achieve a permanent pink colour right from the comfort of your bathroom. These two hues will give you more of a rose-gold finish that’s ultra-flattering and provides a subtler style than the classic bubble-gum-pink look. The liquid-gel formula provides fade-resistant results and is L’Oréal Paris’s number one selling hair colour, which means you’re in good hands.
If you want a permanent baby-pink colour, try:
If you’re itching to go pink, another permanent hair colour option is L’Oréal Paris Féria Smokey Pastels Haircolour in Smokey Pink. This box dye provides you with shimmering, multi-faceted colour that almost looks metallic thanks to its high-shine finish. The best part? You can get your dreamy pink shade in roughly 25 minutes as the application process is quick and easy. This particular formula pairs best with bleached, highlighted or blond-coloured hair and comes with a Power Shimmer Conditioner that seals in your colour for a smooth and shiny finish.
If you want pink tresses for one day, try:
Looking for a super-temporary (think: one day) colour? Look no further than L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup This unique gel-powder hybrid is just like makeup for your hair. With no pre-lightening necessary, it works by sitting on the surface of strands and washes out with one shampoo (no staining, we promise), and it’s transfer-resistant. The line contains 13 colours, three of which are beautiful shades of pink: L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup in #HotPink300 is a vibrant deep-fuchsia shade, #NeonPink200 is a punchy brilliant-pink hue and #PinkViolet400 is a mix of pink and purple for a darker mauve shade.
If you want a fuss-free, spray-on pink tone, try:
Similar to L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup, this is another one-day colour, but it comes in a super-convenient spray bottle. It can be used on all shades of hair, which means no bleaching is required to get bold or pastel hues. Thanks to the fuss-free spray bottle, you can spritz on one colour of highlights or get adventurous and try a few hues for a multicoloured mane. Test out a dip-dye look or highlights using one of the two pink shades: Hot Pink or Rose Gold.
If you want a semi-permanent pink dye job, try:
The original Colorista colour line is still a popular choice. The semi-permanent hair dye comes in both Soft Pink and Pink and lasts from five to 15 washes. The unique formula allows you to customize your colour: Use the formula straight from the tube on dry hair or mix in some white conditioner to soften the colour a bit if you just want a hint of tint. Either way, the results are a salon-worthy dye job that’s non-streaky and hair that’s hydrated and silky. Not to mention the formula is vegan and doesn’t contain ammonia or peroxide.
