Chocolate to Mauve
As pink-colored hair goes, this color combination is understated. Your hair stylist will begin with a base of chocolate brown, a rich hue that’s reflective and flattering on most skin tones. Mid-length, the color will morph into a dusty rose mauve shade.
With this hair look, you’ll be totally on-trend with the growing popularity of millennial pink. More importantly, you’ll be able to try pink without shocking your friends and family.
Ash Brown to Cool Pink
Matte, ashy shades are all the rage in the hair world, and with good reason: They look effortless and cool. The more lived-in and luxurious the color, the more we want to try it out.
For the ultimate cool girl hair color, ask your stylist to create a medium ash brown that becomes icy pink at the tips. For this look, the ends are all you need to make a style statement.
Dirty Blonde to Lilac
Lilac is the perfect shade for ladies who’d like to try out a pastel accent color, but can’t quite bring themselves to commit to pink. It’s the same general aesthetic—all the brightness, but none of the bubblegum.
This hair color looks wonderful against dirty blonde, perhaps the most underappreciated shade in the blonde family. It’s muted and subtle, never flashy.
Pink Gradient Bob
We’re practically drooling over this hair look, which starts with dark raspberry roots that fade into blush before becoming a very bright pink-blonde shade. If you’re a pink fanatic, this ombre look is the cotton candy style you’ve always hoped to try.
A word of advice for the pink-curious: To attain the right degree of vividness, your stylist will need to lighten your hair. Be prepared for a little damage to occur, and make sure you’ve got a moisturizing routine ready.
Ash Blonde to Light Pink
You already know we’re going to advocate any pink combination that involves an ashy base, but this ash blonde look is truly special. Instead of neon pink or anything particularly girly, your hair stylist will color your ends a muted, cool shade that’s more fashion week than it is middle school dance.
Chestnut to Rose Gold
If you’re in the market for an ombre look that can warm up your features while still provide the adrenaline rush of a fresh new ‘do, look no further than a chestnut brown and rose gold combination. Pastel pink may have become popular years ago, but rose gold is a blonde-tinted take on the shade.
To get the most out of your ombre, try this color combination on a lob or shag. Ask your stylist to start the berry hue around your eye level.
Bright Blonde to Icy Pink
Alright, blondies, we’ve got a color combination for you. This watercolor wash is a dreamy summer look, one that takes the blonde you’ve worked so hard to maintain to the next level.
Here’s the best part of this ombre: Because you’re going for a washed-out look, maintenance is incredibly simple. The more pigment that washes out, the better your hair will look.
Pewter to Pink
If you’ve already committed to silver or gray, there’s plenty of reason for you to add pink to your strands. The icy notes in your hair look sweet and alluring next to the popsicle-light shade, adding a hint of whimsy to the fashion-forward ‘do.
We recommend this color combination on bobs or pixie cuts. The shorter the hair, the punchier the color gradient.
