Pastel hair Instagram looks

It's impossible to resist changing your hair with all these gorgeous pastel colors!

The trend for pastel hair is showing no sign of slowing. From Rihanna's catwalk collection for Fenty x Puma in partnership with L'Oréal Professionnel , where pastel colors empower different styles, to Instagram and its 2.8 million uses of #pinkhair, #COLORFULHAIR by L'Oréal Professionnel is the new and exciting way to do #candyhair or #pastelage but in an original, fun and 100% Instagrammable way.


When coral meets dark hair we could not be more amazed by the end result. The coral pastel trend has now officially moved beyond makeup and we could not be happier. This soft pinkish, orange shade looks gorgeous on all skin tones, with the trick being to find the right version of the color to complement your complexion. We do think that this subtle, elegant and original combination works beautifully for those who have bronze skin tones. To have a natural sun-kissed look, just like the look above, try considering a golden peach tone.


Lavender, lilac and purple shades are a great choice, because they are jazzy but also very soft and subtle. In this look, the lavender hair colors are actually not the predominant color – the titanium is. However, the strikes of lavender really stand out, and the effect is subtle and sleek. The combination of titanium and lavender suits perfectly well her fair skin tone. Because having lavender hair can become a challenge following your fashion and makeup application, complimenting this look with strong eye makeup and a cool accessory just like this choker necklace, you will just rock it!


#Rootmelt seems to be one of this year's hottest hair color trend. It's a fact; our roots are naturally darker and gradually fade out into the length, so the idea with shadow root pastels is to create that same dark-to-lighter progression. But instead of dark blonde transforming into light blonde, it might be a matter of purple, converting into lighter strands of lilac, baby pink or even into the natural hair color. If in doubt, consult your hair colorist for their input - they are trained to identify colors that will suit your natural coloring.
