Hot New Trend Alert: Pastel Hair Color

We all know that pastels bloom in the spring, but this season pastel colors are stretching beyond clothing.  Some of our favorite celebrities like, Katy Perry, Nicole Richie, Hilary Duff and Jennifer Lawrence are adding a little spring color to their hair.

Katy Perry opted for a pretty lavender color, while Nicole Richie went for the classic pink.  Hilary Duff however, was a lot more daring with her decision to dye her hair a shade of greenish-blue.

A recent InStyle article gives us tips on how we can experiment with our hair color.  Pastels tend to fade quicker than other colors, but the article advises that if you’re a bit indecisive, perhaps you should opt for a coloring method that can be washed out.  If you’re starting with a lighter hair color, you’re in luck because dying it will be an easier task.  If you’re like me and you have brown hair, you’ll have to do some extensive bleaching before getting your desired pastel color.

Personally, I’ve thought about dying my hair several times, but haven’t yet taken the plunge.  Recently, the ombre look has gotten my attention.  Ombre gives you the best of both worlds because you can experiment with your color without having to worry about damage from dying all of your hair especially the part right next to your roots.  Also, if you don’t like the new color you’ve added to the bottom of your hair, you could just cut it off.

Jennifer Lawrence looks edgy and chic in the picture below where she experiments with pastel pink by adding it to only the bottom of her hair.
