Faded Pastel Hair
Pastel hair has seen its heyday(s) many moons ago, but the latest iteration for Spring is a lot more washed out — in a good way. "Faded pastels will make a comeback, but they will be more powdery and white feeling — think Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes," said NYC-based colorist Stephanie Brown. "Soft blues and pinks will be seen a lot."
"Faded pastels will make a comeback, but they will be more powdery and white feeling."
To pull it off, keep in mind that "this is for the person who has very pale highlights or platinum hair," according to Brown, who added that yellow undertones make you lose the powdery effect. "Since these colors are so pale, they can be hard to maintain, but there are at-home shampoos and conditioners that can help. I like Bleach London, Overtone — and Muvo makes a pretty pink. To make sure the pastel stays pale, mix the formula with a plain shampoo or conditioner so the colors don't come out too vibrant."
