Pastel Hair – In or Out?
We’ve all seen our BFF Kelly Osborne from E!’s Fashion Police rock her light purple, pastel colored hair!
More and more each day I’ve found that Pastel hair is so in. But we at Nothing Less Magazine want to get your insight on the newest hair obsession!
The first time I saw Kelly Osborne dye her hair light purple I was absolutely appalled by the look! Purple hair? Really? But, now, times have changed and fashion has been constantly moving forward to bigger and better things… To be honest, I’ve grown to LOVE pastel hair! I find it very cute, trendy, chic, and especially unique.
Pastel Hair has become MAJOR, so many girls today are dying their hair to rock this new look!
What is “Pastel Hair”?
For those of you who don’t know. Pastel Hair is definitely NOT your natural hair color. And, I would say that the goal of pastel hair is to not look natural, but to give more of a fantasy appeal to it. Colors range from blue, teal, pink, beige, grey, purple – and so much more! The trick to making these pretty colors even prettier is by making them lighter and even more vibrant. Every inch of hair, from the roots, is colored – so you better hope you get the color just right!
Keep in mind the pastel hair is NOT meant to look natural! In a way, the look evokes this type of other-worldly vibe from whoever is rocking their pastel hair color. But, it is important to ensure that the color is covering every inch of your hair – you do not want your natural hair color showing when owning pastel hair… it just won’t look as fresh and consistent!
How to rock it?
Okay, first things first. You need to know what color best suits you. You, as in, your personality plus your overall appearance. Those with a paler complexion can basically rock any color – but for best results you’re going to want to keep your pastel hair as light as possible. Even girls with tanner and darker complexions can rock this hairstyle! It’s all about knowing what goes best with your skin tone. Olive and beige skin tones always seem to work best with blues, and pale skin tones go best with the lighter shade of pastel colors.
– Cute, unique, creative.
– Helps you stand out!
– Hair is an accessory, so coloring it just adds to your style and personality!
– Difficulty in coordinating certain outfits with your hair? (Ex. You don’t want to overshadow and overwhelm your fashion choices with your already outlandish hair color.)
– Too much time and money to keep up with filling in those roots!
What do you guys think?
Is pastel hair too out there? Or is it a cute way to showcase individuality and creativity?
And! If you’re considering dying your hair pastel colored but aren’t quite sure just yet, or don’t want to ruin your hair with hardcore beach and hair dyes – you can always pull a Katy Perry and wear a bunch of different colored wigs that match your style! Colored wigs are IN, and JUST as cute as dying your hair a unique color – just make sure the style shapes to your face, and the color coordinates and highlights your skin tones!
