Can’t figure out your next hair color? Try hot pink hair. It’s the girliest of colors and can also be styled in soft or edgy looks. This cool hair hue can be worn with casual outfits and dressy outfits that need more of an attention-grabbing hairstyle.
Even if you don’t want to fully commit to cutting or dyeing your own hair, you can wear a quality wig that is much easier to find these days. Not to mention, wigs have come a long way since the 90s. Guaranteed, you’ll fall in love with your new look!
Hot Pink/Soft Pink Combo
For a look that you can wear with jeans and other casual outfits, try a hot pink hair color with softer pink highlights. This look can be worn in long, yet really loose waves and can be achieved by separating your hair into small sections. Curl away from your hair, starting at the mid-section of each piece. Toggle, while pulling your curling wand in a downward motion. Repeat this step until your entire head is curled.
Hot Pink Streaks
If you’re afraid of complete commitment, try hot pink streaks! This is the perfect mix of punk and girly. Leaving your hair blonde with streaks of a brighter hue will bring more attention to the more vibrant shade, but doesn’t overpower. Try getting your hair colored with a layer of pink. This isn’t a color technique that’s recommended to attempt on your own. Try finding a reputable solon, in your area on social media and reach out, to see if this is something they can complete for you.
Voluminous curls are a popular trend this fall, and what better way to wear them? Try wearing a middle part hairstyle with long, full curls. Use a 1 and 1/4 inch curling wand and curl relatively large sections of your hair. Keep your curls tight until you’ve finished all of your curls. Run your fingers through your hair and tease your roots. This look is bold and full of sexy glam, allowing you to wear it on nights you want to cuddle with your crush.
A cool, cosplay-inspired bob is a fun way to wear hot pink hair. Wear a shoulder-length bob and bump your ends slightly. Leave a couple of pieces of your hair draping slightly over your brows. You can wear cat-eye sunglasses and a sweatshirt, for a cute, studying look. It’s best to achieve this look with a wig since the color is a much lighter pink and the bob is relatively short.
You can still rock a voluminous look on a daily basis when you wear your hair in fluffy curls. For this look, you’ll create larger curls, the same as you would for a more glam look. This time, you’ll want to brush your curls a bit, without brushing them completely out. Part your hair down the middle and wear soft eye and cheek makeup, with a bold lip!
Try an ombre pink hair look with hot pink and purple. You can get your hair cut with blunt ends, all while coloring your hair in a two-toned style. Wear a side or middle part and curls all over. This look will bring out any color within your outfit and will look awesome in a top, messy bun!
Switch up the super feminine look of hot pink hair and wear a more grunge look. Keep the roots of your hair dark brown or black, while the ends are hot pink. Create a messy, punk look by cutting your ends bluntly and wearing your hair more wavy than curly. Wear hot pink lips and highlight your cheeks. This look is perfect for a girls’ night or a random shopping day. You can even dye your ends a different color if you get tired of the hot pink and keep the roots purple.
Color your hair in thick, chunky streaks of hot pink and black. You can color the back of your hair and leave the top dark. Or, you can add stripes of pink, in between your dark hair. This look is edgy, yet chic, especially when worn in a doughnut-inspired bun. Add a bang and keep your bang dark, as well. This look will bring out gold-tone accessories and will stand out the most against white tops.
Wear hot pink hair in soft crimps all over for a striking look. Part your hair on the side and crimp each piece in medium-sized sections, throughout. Once you’re finished, you can brush your hair a little, to bring the crimped pieces together, so that they don’t appear separate. This look will leave your hair very full and bouncy as you walk!
A layered pink hairstyle that starts short and gets longer, creates a frame around your face. This brings attention to your makeup, brows, and lashes. Wear hot pink with undertones of softer pink colors, which will blend into a candy-colored look! Try accessorizing your hair with a large, bling clamp or hair comb with embellishments.
Create a punk look with hot pink hair in a more laid-back, rocker style. Since this is more of a bed-head look, you can tease your hair for more fullness. Make sure your hair is misplaced, but still neatly styled. You can create a short, zig-zag part and comb your hair over, in a way that will give you more volume on one side. This look will work with graphic t-shirts and gothic-style makeup.
Wearing your hair in a different color from brown and black takes a bold attitude! If you need a switch up from your everyday looks, try wearing hot pink hair in more styles than one.
