Rosé hair, lilac hair or silver hair: how to get these colors at the salon

While hair salons that specialize in rainbow hair colors exist, they're often hard to find. Rather than attempt to recreate these colors at home and risk damaging your mane, ask your favorite hair professional to give you rosé, lilac or silver hair at your local salon. The process is fairly straight-forward!

Bleach first, color later

In order for your pastel shade to really pop, hair needs to be bleached first – even if you're a blonde! If you have really dark hair, this step can take a few visits to the salon. Before undergoing the bleaching process, ask your hair stylist about in-salon services that will protect your locks during it, like SMARTBOND by L'Oréal Professionnel. Your hair will feel stronger and look shinier afterwards!

Classic hair colors are mixed with conditioner

Once your hair is bleached, it's time for the fun part: your pastel color! For a rosé shade, your colorist will dilute a few drops of red hair dye in some conditioner and then apply it all over your mane, like a mask. They'll let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse it out. For a lilac shade, they'll do the same thing, but with dark purple dye.

For silver hair, we recommend bringing pictures with you to your appointment to demonstrate how light or dark you want the color to appear. This will help your hair professional determine what shade is best to use.

Maintaining the new hair color

It's important to invest in professional salon quality shampoo and conditioner to protect your rosé, lilac or silver hair color at home. The Vitamino Color line from L'Oréal Professionnel is great for pastel shades, and the Silver Shampoo by L'Oréal Professionnel will enhance your silver color and keep it from turning brassy.
