With the arrival of spring 2018 comes a new hair colour inspiration. Stylists have left the drab and grey colours of winter behind and have fully embraced hues with a little more oomph. Influenced by light and gentle traditional spring colours, pastel hair is very popular this spring. If you are ready for a fresh look, stand out with a stunning pastel palette.

What Exactly Is Pastel Hair?

Pastel hair colours instantly brighten your entire appearance. These gentle colours soften the look of your hair, but also make a bold statement. Be inspired by a huge variety of colours to satisfy your passion for colour, such as lavender, rose gold, coral, light teal, purple or a mix of colours that some stylists have called “unicorn” or “mermaid” hair.

Is Pastel Hair For Me?

The current pastel hair colour trend works for both men and women. Celebrities like Zayn Malik, Joe Jonas, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Kylie Jenner have recently rocked this colour trend. The best part is that these lighter shades work extraordinarily with any hair length.

Combine your new hair with the most popular 2018 hairstyles, like voluminous curls, braids, playful ponytails or other accessories and you will be ready to take on any event that comes your way this spring.

Is Pastel Hair Easy to Maintain?

Pastel hair will require a little more upkeep than natural hair. While this vibrant trend is stunning, it is important to remember how much work needs to go into attaining and maintaining these spring-inspired colours. Soft pastel colours are not obvious in combination with natural blonde hair, and especially not on dark hair. Hairstylists suggest starting a pastel hair colour journey by first bleaching your hair to strip away colour molecules. After this process, the hair becomes more porous and the dye can bond more easily to the hair.

Stylists suggest washing your hair less, or simply using dry shampoo more often as a way to nurture your new colour. Unfortunately, the reality is that the more colourful your  hair, the more maintenance it will need. Regular visits to the hair salon will become necessary to keep the vivid colours.
