Pastel hair has been a rising trend for the past two years, but we are only quite recently seeing it in the mainstream rather than it being just a niche trend. It began with a dip-dye/ombre effect, but has quickly evolved into an all over emmersion of colour!
To be fair, the only "downside" to achieving luscious pastel locks is the amount of bleaching involved. Everyone knows bleaching hair at any level is extremely damaging to hair, and with pastel colours to actually appear beautifully, one needs to bleach their hair almost white.
Therefore, we always suggest going to professionals who can achieve this look with the best products available in an effort to minimize any damage to your hair. They are also the best to advise you on what products to use for after care. If you do want to go at it alone, we suggest bleaching your hair in weekly increments. Yes, this lengthens the amount of time it will take to achieve the pastel look, and you may suffer with awkward orange hair phases, but atleast you'll be kinder to your hair. Either way, make sure to always condition and oil your hair on a regular basis to keep it as healthy as possible! We want it to look luscious and healthy, not dry, damaged and a shriveled mess like this:
