The 12 Best Light Pink Hair Color Ideas

Best light pink hair colors

A light pink hair color is a soft and muted shade of pink. Common variations of this softer pink include bubblegum, cotton candy, pastel pink and rose gold.

With such a bright color, a professional hair colorist should be sought out to do the job because most home hair dyes won’t last as long. After finding the perfect light pink tone that matches your complexion, the next step would be to have your hair pre-lightened to a blonde to get a splendid vibrant result.

According to Elk Grove, CA hair colorist Shi Anton, the best thing you can do when getting light pink hair is to “wash way less than normal with a sulfate-free color safe shampoo.” You’ll want to always condition it as well “because it seals the hair shaft back down,” she adds. When washing your hair, Shi says it’s very important to do it with the coldest water you can stand to make the color last long.
