Pastel Hair Colors

Please fasten your seat belts, folks, pastel hair colors as we embark on an exciting journey to the fashion runways (virtual for now, thanks Pandemic!). This isn’t your typical haute couture tour but a colorful, head-turning, eyebrow-raising (and sometimes jaw-dropping) romp into the hair-raising world of pastel hues.

If you’ve got your nose buried deep in work and missed noticing the pastel parade of greens, purples, and pinks, let me give you a hint. It’s not a candy store assortment; it’s our darling tresses catching up on summer fun! Suddenly, lavender isn’t just a flower anymore, and peach isn’t just a fruit. If it wasn’t evident already, we’re all entangled in the exciting trend of pastel hair colors.

And where did this trend emerge from? We can’t blame unicorns this time (sorry, mythical beasts). The catwalks have been the birthing ground of this trend. Models have been spotted donning shades lighter and sweeter than their ice-creams, and who are we to resist such sweetness? It’s like living in a Depop fashion feed where your hair is the cherry on top!

While we may not all be brave enough to carry this trend with aplomb, seeing Barbies becoming real is fascinating! And just when we thought 2020 couldn’t get more surprising, BOOM! Pastel hair colors became a thing; frankly, it’s pastel-very fantastic!

The Investigation: Why the rise in Pastel Hair Colors?

Oh, the sweet, sweet sugar high that’s come knocking on the door of our tresses. Have you ever wondered about those quirky heads turning your way whenever you strut down the street? Well, I’ve got a three-word wonder for you. Pastel. Hair. Colors. But why the sudden rise in popularity, you ask? Well, let’s sleuth it out.

Pop culture, you sneaky beast! You seem to be wielding a significant influence here. Classic celebrity manes have been spun into cotton candy, spritzed with a light peppermint dew, or dipped into the palest lilacs. As if being fabulously wealthy and impossibly good-looking wasn’t enough already, huh? Cardi B shows up in a pastel blue wig, or Billie Eilish flaunting green roots unquestionably sparks a worldwide rave. Who can complain? They look drop-dead stunning.

Now, let’s coax the elephant in the room to do a little twirl.

Social media is the ultimate trend fueler. One scrolls down the ‘gram’s explore feed, and it’s raining pastels. Between all those altered #nofilter selfies and vacation pics, every second person seems to be passionate about pastel locks. And let’s say the filters are only helping the cause. Don’t trust everything you see online unless it’s a pastel selfie with a unicorn floatie. That you should trust.

Lastly, could we’ve stumbled upon a new form of self-expression? Maybe we’re all just tired of speaking with just words. Perhaps we’ve found that pastel hair is the megaphone we never had. Sheesh! Who knew a trip to the salon could feel like such a cliched, coming-of-age movie? But hey, if a dash of hair color gives you the power to own the room, move over the hairbrush; here’s the new microphone!

But herein lies the sincere caution – don’t dive into that pastel pool without getting dirt on the possible side ripples. Stay tuned for some edifying chit-chat about the pros and cons. Spoiler alert: Pastel Colors may or may not have signed a truce deal with hair health!

Pastel Hair Color Types: A Rainbow Gathering

Dive into the pastel-colored sea of hair, will you? I know I did, and I must confess, I came out blush pink. Cotton Candy Pink, as they say in the pastel world. Does it sound too sweet? Trust me, it isn’t as sugary as it sounds. This pastel shade is like that popular kid in school you desperately wanted to be, or at least be friends with. The blushing pink became a trend loved by celebs and influencers, selling dreams of a candy-floss-like existence. Sigh! If only popularity translated to actual calories.

Then, Lavender Love whispers sweet-nothings in your ears, turning your insides into a puddle of purple mush. There, I said it! I’m in love with Lavender! But choosing the perfect pastel color is almost as challenging as choosing between two adorable puppies – both heartbreaking and exhilarating. The secret sauce? Understanding your skin tone and playing matchmaker with your ideal pastel color. It’s like dating but much more rewarding, and no ghosting is involved.

Before you head first, claiming your short hair won’t catch the pastel essence, catch a Fortnite ‘buzzcut’ for all I care! Short hair, buzzcut, or even a bald spot, nothing equals a ‘no-entry’ sign for pastel hair colors. Is there a chance for pastel hair with short hair? Sweetie, unless you’re bald, there’s always a ‘buzzcut’ chance. Well, there are wigs!

So, let down your possibly to-be-pastel hair, shake off those self-doubts, and paint yourself a pastel rainbow because it’s always the perfect season for pastel hair. And who knows, you might end up inspiring next season’s trend-setting Peacock Teal or Iced Frappuccino Brown Pastel Hair! Splashes of colors, sprinkles of style, with a generous scoop of sass – What’s not to love?

BFF or Frenemy: The Side effects Vs. the Pros

Oh, sweet summer child, if you thought that the only downer that came with pastel hair was explaining to your grandma why you’ve suddenly sprouted baby blue locks, you’ve got another thing coming. Let’s spill some truth tea: pastel hair can put your hair’s health on the line (cue dramatic music). You’re essentially bleaching your innocent, unsuspecting strands bone white before coating them with a layer of fairy floss – how could there not be an aftermath? Nothing screams ‘healthy hair day’ like brittle, thirsty strands. Wrong.

But all fairytales have their evil witches, so why should going pastel be any different? Sour notes aside, getting your hair to pastel perfection has its charm, like prancing around looking like a unicorn’s cousin. Talk about dinner-party conversation starters.

Hold onto your rainbow-colored manes because the pro list is longer than Rapunzel’s hair. Congratulations, you’ve just booked a one-way ticket to trendsetter town. With every head turn and gasp, you become the audacious, bold fashion statement everyone is too chicken to make. Secondly, pastel colors are like mood rings. Are you wearing Cotton Candy Pink? You’re exuding a cheerful and bubbly aura. Going Emerald Green this week – you’re mysterious and vibrant. Also, let’s not forget the understated satisfaction of your hair matching your outfit. It’s like your own personal fashion show around the clock.

So, is going pastel worth it? Paging the risk-takers, fashion setters, and color enthusiasts, this one’s for you! Beauty is pain, and if the occasional frizz is the fee for looking like a walking piece of art, we’d say keep the change. Who knew hair could be such an intellectual debate?

Okay, sit tight. Up next, we’re debunking some pastel fibs…well, what can I say? Stay ‘tuned’.

Rumour Session: The Common Myths Debunked

Wow, you made it this far into the blog? I bet your hair’s already turning a pastel shade of amazement!

Alright, entrenched firmly within our Rumour Session, let’s debunk some boisterous myths plaguing Pastel-ville. “Pastel colors fade away quicker than my interest in dieting.” Have you heard that one before? Well, here’s the deal, folks – pastel hair color does fade, but not faster than your willpower when faced with chocolate cake (Let’s face it, who can resist that?). It’s just because they’re lighter shades, and the only thing helping them fade quicker is poor maintenance and overwashing. So, chill out!

On the other hand, we’ve got the quintessential fright-night fable – “Pastel hair color, more like bleach bonanza!” Now, ain’t that a colorfully tragic exaggeration! Sure, lightening your hair to a certain degree might be necessary for some, but calling it a bleach fest is like saying that watching one episode of a reality show turns you into a couch potato! It’s the preparation, not the pastel, that might require a bleaching step! So calm your tresses; we aren’t signing any bleach contracts!

So, pastel pilots, let’s safely navigate these myth-infested skies! Now clip on your seatbelts as we brace ourselves for a pastel DIY session in our next flight of fancy…

Step-by-Step: The Pastel 101

Well, my fellow unicorn enthusiasts, you asked for it, and we shall deliver! Behold your step-by-step (pastel) magical transformation guide: The Pastel 101.

Our first lesson: DIY – Don’t wait for your fairy godmother! You, too, can get pastel hair at home. Find a high-quality semi-permanent dye (the rainbow’s your oyster) and follow the instructions. Lighten your hair if needed, grab a brush, and show Picasso how it’s done! Apply the pastel dye to your locks, wait (dance break recommended), rinse, and voilà! Your whimsical makeover awaits.

Onto lesson two: Maintenance Baby Steps. Pastel hair colors can be like fair-weather friends; they fade away. Shampoo less often, use a color-safe duo and cold water (yeah, it’s chilly – but beauty knows no sacrifice). Monthly touch-ups will keep that color vibrant and fabulous for you!

Let’s wrap up with lesson three: Product Do’s & Dare-I-Say-Don’ts. Do invest in a hair mask to keep your locks luscious, moisturized, and ready to dazzle. A heat protectant spray is also essential when you’re in the mood to style. As for Don’ts? Skipping color-treated hair care products – nobody has time for disrespecting pastel greatness!

Follow these gospel truths, and you shall ascend the pastel hair Olympus! Just remember, with excellent pastel hair comes great responsibility. Good luck and happy coloring!


So, my dear hair-color enthusiasts, are we expecting a pastel party in the future or just a fleeting trend that’ll go “out of style” just like my 80s mullet? Who knows? With every pop star and their dog rocking rainbow hues, pastel seems to have its roots set deep in style soil.

And the million-dollar question… Is ditching the conventional colors for a plunge into the pastel pool worth it? Oh, honey, that’s a resounding ‘YES,’ echoed by my friend’s grumpy cat! Doing pastel is not just a style statement; it’s a pastel-coated rebellion, a fabulous defiance against the hair-norm. So, before we wrap up, let’s clear the fog: Pastel hair, trend or not, is not just “hair-okay”; it’s an ‘overall good idea.’ (Well, unless you’re Cousin Itt, literally a hairball from Addams Family, then I can’t promise anything).
