Dusty Rose Hair: How To Get 2018's Hottest Hair Trend
19 March 2018
For the last several years, pink hair color has captivated us. From a faded hint of pastel to vibrant magenta, we’re obsessed with all things pink. In 2018, however, we’re seeing a cooler, more purple-influenced take on the shade. Stylists everywhere have nicknamed it dusty rose hair for its shadowy play on pastel pink and lavender shades.
If you’ve already spotted this trending color popping up on social media accounts, you’re ahead of the curve. For spring, dusty rose hair is a muted, lovely take on pastels that won’t overwhelm your face. As an added bonus, your hair color will only look more beautiful the more it fades between appointments.
Read on to see how you can make this grape-influenced shade work on your mane.
What is dusty rose hair color?
Fantasy hair shades may consist of just a few general color families, but it’s the undertones that make all the difference. Dusty rose hair color has a gray base, which makes it feel considerably moodier than its candy-influenced equivalents.
If you’ve already tried silver or gray hair, dusty rose is a natural next step. It’ll add just a touch of vibrancy to your shadowed pastel locks. As an added bonus, it will suit most complexions. We even like it paired with a shadowed root or applied as a balayage.
What’s the best way to ask for dusty rose hair?
There’s only one way to be absolutely sure your colorist delivers the hue you’ve been imagining: photos. Save a handful of images to your phone and review them together during your consultation.
Expect that your colorist will bleach your hair to lift the color before beginning work on your pink shade. While bleach will always cause some damage to your strands, a skilled stylist will work with you to minimize the look and feel of the damage.
Fantasy hair colors aren’t easy to achieve, so plan for your new shade to require up to three salon appointments before you leave looking like a fairy goddess. Although the scheduling might be time-consuming, you’ll be grateful that your colorist took his or her time when you leave with your hair health intact.
How should you care for dusty rose hair?
We always recommend pastel hair colors for ladies who have previous experience with platinum. Fantasy shades fade quickly and tend to require regular touch-ups. The time and expense is an investment, but not one most hair color newbies are prepared to take on.
After hours in the chair, you’ll want to be sure your hair care routine protects your color. With a shade this cool, you’ll also want to stave off any brassy hues that start to appear. From the L’Oréal portfolio of brands, we recommend Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner.
With these helpful tips, you’ll be showing off your dusty rose hair color in no time at all.
