Dusty Pastels- Pink

Dusty pink is such a pretty option. Honestly, you can make it work no matter what shade of hair you have, you just have to adjust the shade. Those with natural red hair or dark hair should go for a more peachy pink, while those who are naturally blonde should go for a cooler-toned, icy pink. The beauty of this color is that it can work for the girly-girls as well as the risk-takers.

Dusty Pastels- Ombre/Balayage

Ok, so maybe you chose your color but the thought of putting it all over your head is still terrifying. This is just one reason we all still love the ombre or balayage look! Not only is it super pretty and stylish, but it’s also a safer option to get a pop of color without losing your natural roots.


Dusty Pastels- Lavender


Pink is not everyone’s favorite, and any other color may seem too much. That is why dusty lavender is a good choice for the ones who want something pretty, but not too pretty or not too bold. Whether you get it in balayage, ombre, highlights or all over color, it will definitely be a hit!

Dusty Pastels- Rainbow

It goes without saying that this look is for the daredevils, the wild cards and those looking to have a good time! This will be a popular look this year amongst the festival goers. The pastel version of the rainbow, unicorn hair gives us the cotton candy feels and we are here for it!
