Want to look super-hot this summer? Then you’ll want to check out the latest hairstyle trend that is pastel power! Pretty candyfloss pinks, baby blues and dove greys are making headlines this year and, believe it or not, almost anyone can pull them off.


A pop of pastel


Let’s face it – there’s nothing subtle about this look. Having said that, there is a way to tone it down if you feel you want to. Instead of dying your hair one colour from root to tip, why not opt for the classic ombrè style instead? Sporting natural locks that gently fade into the pastel colour of your choice can look mad trendy – and it’s probably a better option for work, too!


Going all the way


If you’re feeling particularly daring, there really isn’t anything stopping you from going the whole hog and embracing the pastel power trend with open arms. If you’re wondering how to dye your hair pastel pink, blue or grey, we recommend heading off to an expert. Your hairdresser will be able to advise you on the best colour for your skin tone and will ensure that the result looks professional, sleek and tidy.


Caring for your new tresses


As with most dyes, pastels are certain to fade over time. Avoid this by using the right hair care products to preserve the pigment. We love the nourishing and colour-protecting L'Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Color A-OX Masque.
