Pastel Hair Instagram Looks

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

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 colours championed different styles - to Instagram and its 89 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.


The coral pastel trend has now officially moved beyond makeup and we could not be happier. This soft pink and orange shade looks gorgeous on all skin tones, with the trick being to find the right version of the colour to complement your complexion. We 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 eye-catching but also very soft and subtle. In this look, the lavender is actually not the predominant colour – the titanium grey is. However, the strikes of lavender really stand out, and the effect is subtle and sleek. The combination of titanium and lavender suits this model's fair skin tone. Having lavender hair can make it hard for the rest of your outfit to stand out. We love how this gal has paired her hair with strong eye makeup and a cool accessory like the choker necklace.


#Rootmelt seems to be one of this year's hottest hair colour trends. 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 colour. If in doubt, consult your hair colourist for their input - they are trained to identify colours that will suit your natural colouring.
