Pink Balayage: 21 Photos That Will Inspire You to Try This Hair Color Next

Pink balayage ideas for women

Pink balayage gives hair a natural-looking rosy or pale red hue. Depending on the intensity of the tones, this hair color can give you an effortless romantic style or a bold look that stands out.

Elle Bruno, a hair colorist from Nutley, NJ, shared her top suggestions for ladies trying this fashion color.

💡 Key Things to Know First

  • Hair goals can be unrealistic in one session, so be patient.
  • Understand how much maintenance will go into your desired look. Make sure it’s the color you can keep up with and enjoy in the coming weeks.
  • Come back to the salon two weeks after the initial service.
  • Avoid washing the hair every day to prevent fading. Washing it with color-treated shampoo and conditioner, along with cool water, is key.
  • Redkens Acidic Bonding shampoo and conditioner are great. And, FUSIO-Dose by Kerastase, too!
  • Here’s a recap. During the consultation, these are the questions to ask your stylist:
    • What will the maintenance look like?
    • After achieving my desired look, how long should I wait before changing my hair color again? And to what shade?
    • Will this process damage my hair?
    • What products do you recommend?
    • Will this whole idea work with my budget?
