PINK hair don’t care!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll be aware of my love of pastel pink. I’m not sure why I love it so much, but I do and that’s it. So I didn’t have to think twice when L’Oreal Professionnel asked me to try out the new ‘pastelage‘ trend. It’s being dubbed the new balayage and is pretty much balayage with pastels – my dream.

I went to Headmasters in Oxford Circus and the gorgeous Siobhan got to work on my hair. She’s incredible and she sorted my blonde out before applying the pink – it needed cleaning up as there were some harsh lines and it was more brassy than ashy (despite my copious amounts of purple shampoo!).


Siobhan applied the pink using a balayage technique and the L’Oreal Professionnel #ColorfulHair semi-permanent in-salon colour. This product features seven intermixable shades including one Crystal Clear version to allow the vibrant shades to be pastel.


I left a few hours later feeling very unicorn-y and determined to have pink in my hair forever. The only downside to this is that it doesn’t last as long as I’d like – I’d say it was completely out after about 5 washes. I’ve been too busy since to get it redone but I definitely plan on doing so as I love having a touch of pink in my hair – it makes me feel fun and adds an edge to my look.

If you get it done, tag me in your snaps – I want to see! xx
