All of you who are looking to get a major hair makeover in 2021, should definitely give a thought to trying out a pink colored hairstyle? Why? Because it simply is one of the best colors out there, and it can look just as gorgeous when you incorporate it into your hair too.
There is a pink that substituted everything from bold to soft. From pastels to neutrals and darker shades to soft neon shades, there’s a color out there for everyone and you just need to explore a little bit to find out what works best for you. Well, we have made that exploring easier for you with this list of 25 different pink hairstyles.
But before we move onto the various pink hairstyles, let us know a little more about coloring, dying and highlighting your hair and how you can take care of it post coloring.
What is Highlighting and Coloring?
Highlighting is simply coloring the hair strands and is done in 4 different ways: foil highlights, painting of the hair, frosting and chunking.
While highlighting only involves changing the color of a few strands such as streaks or highlights, coloring, on the other hand, is the process of dying all the hair.
How to Take Care of Your Dyed or Highlighted Hair?
Taking care of your hair after coloring is very important since the hair is prone to major damage otherwise. Lack of proper care/maintenance may lead to your hair becoming dry and damaged which sometimes may be irreversible. Hence, here are a few tips and tricks to keep it in good shape:
- Use hair products that are specifically made for colored hair, such as sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners.
- Adding dye to your conditioner will help to slightly re-dye your hair and slow down the fading process so your hair can look fresh and new for longer duration.
- Do not use hot water to wash your hair
- Don’t wash your hair every single day. Try washing your hair every couple of days. You can also sometimes switch to dry shampoo which is a great alternative.
- Use products like leave-in conditioners during styling since they will help to retain the moisture long after styling and thus provide a good amount of hydration.
- Before using heating tools, use a heat protecting spray.
So these are just some handy tips and tricks that will go a long way in helping you to protect your hair. Now let’s move on to explore the various styles.
1. Half Up Half Down Hairstyle
Not sure if you want to tie your hair up or just let it down freely? Well, you can do both with this half up half down hairstyle. The hair is colored in various shades of pink from a dark shade to a lighter shade.
Just take a thick section of hair and then tie it up as a high bun on the middle itself. The rest of the hair can be let down as it is. The bun and the freely flowing hair clearly show the color variation that is arising from the highlights. A lovely pink hue that looks very aesthetic too.
2. Neon Pink Ponytail
If you love brighter and flashy shades more than neutral or pastel ones, then you will surely like this neon pink look. The hair is just maintained in a wavy texture, and subtle layering has been done on the hair.
A few layers of hair on the front are also cropped short and left hanging to frame the face. The rest of the hair is pulled back and tied in a normal knotted ponytail style which makes it look amazing.
3. Short Bob in Mauve Color
We all love this mauve pink shade. It doesn’t look too pinkish, nor does it look too neutral that it becomes a really light color. And since you can also see the natural black roots of the hair, it contrasts well against the brunette roots.
The bob is very short and maintained at the length of the shoulders itself. Subtle layering has also been done to add a deeper dimension and volume to the hair.
4. Soft Neon Pink on Long Hair
This is one of those really good hairstyles and one that is totally Instagram worthy. In fact, this is one of those looks that became famous due to the various Instagram styles itself.
We all know how the Kardashian sisters are famous for their various colored hairstyles, so if you’re looking to add some inspiration from them, this hairstyle would be perfect for you. It’s quite simple actually since most of the styling just includes dying all of the hair in a soft neon pink color.
5. Pink Braided Style
Whoa, how stunning is this thick hair look? And those onion pink and dusty pink highlights that have been colored all over just make it look stunning. The hair here is subtly swept over to the sides, and a few sections of hair on the longer side are thickly braided.
The braids are then neatly tucked in with the rest of the hair that is simply left hanging down. The color also fades out to a soft and pastel pink as we go further towards the bottom.
6. Neon Pink Wavy Hair
Layering is of significant help when it comes to adding more volume to your look. And especially if you have thin strands of hair, the layering technique really helps to make it look good.
The same can be seen here in this hairstyle where the hair is chopped into several layers. A neon pink color dye has also been painted all over the hair.
7. Warm Pink Tones
This is a much-loved shade of pink and one that is quite popular thanks to Instagram. So how exactly do you get this killer hairstyle? Well for starters, make sure that no matter what length your hair is in, you should style it in a wavy cut.
