When it comes to candy-colored hair, confidence is key. Do you think only fair-skinned people can rock this kind of look? Read on to see how pink hair, blue hair, or any other bold color, can go with all skin tones.

How to Rock Pink Hair

Many Hollywood celebrities have worn pink hair: Kylie Jenner, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Osbourne, Lady Gaga, Helen Mirren, Nikki Minaj, and of course, Pink. If ScarJo’s Lost in Translation wig appeals to you, the it’s time to commit to a more permanent version.

Model Kaia Gerber's subtler approach of mattified magenta ombre locks is a more laid-back alternative to the full-on pink ‘do. It’s also easier to maintain since you don’t have to worry about your roots showing!

Another option, you can go for singer Demi Lovato’s ultra-modern pastel pink version. Her pink bowl cut screams edgy and cool. If a daring haircut is not your thing, you can also wear this on a bob or even long hair. Like Demi, you can complement your look by repeating the cool and frosty shade of pink on your lips. Keep your locks in top shape with Dove Intense Repair Conditioner, which will help your hair get stronger even with regular coloring.

How to Slay with Blue Hair

Did anyone say, “blue hair, don’t care”? Billie Eilish, Bella Thorne, Ciara, Nicole Richie, and Halsey certainly have. Of course, let’s not forget yet another popular fictional character that gets a lot of Halloween screen time, Kate Winslet’s Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Blue hair has the unique position of being part rock ‘n’ roll, part fairytale. Expect the best of both worlds when you’re rocking blue locks.

Take Hilary Duff’s recent dye job, giving us The Little Mermaid vibes with its silvery pastel aquamarine shade. Hers is a full-on look, with her hair dyed blue from root to tip. If you’re going to do this, be prepared to take extra care of your locks since bleaching and dyeing can cause dryness and damage. Use TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Conditioner, specifically formulated to preserve the sheen of colored hair. It uses violet pigments to neutralize brassy tones and keep your colored hair looking brilliant.

Keep changing up your look with different bold hues like Margaret Zhang. (Credit: instagram/margaretzhang)

Best known for her colored locks, photographer and filmmaker Margaret Zhang wears an intense royal blue, which looks beautiful against her olive skin. Keep your hair color intense and prevent dullness with Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive Ultra Conditioner, a sulfate-free conditioner with Triple Keratin Complex. It is specifically formulated to replenish lost nutrients from coloring and revive chemically treated hair so that you can wear your blue hair longer like Margaret.

Pink hair or blue hair? Your hair color, your rules! You can rock different bold hair colors, whatever your skin tone. Just make sure to give your locks the proper hair care routine that includes shampooing and conditioning with the right hair care products. This habit keeps your colored hair vibrant and healthy and makes it easier to style.
