Tempted? Luckily, semi-permanent hair dyes can be done yourself, so you don't need to wait for a hairdresser to update your look. The experts at Bleach London have put together some tips for dyeing your hair at home.
Top tips for dying your hair pastel pink
Tip 1. To create a pastel look, the hair has to be a very light blonde for the colour to show. Use the Bleach London Total Bleach Kit to lift the hair to a pale blonde. For extra guidance, head to chat.bleachlondon.com for a virtual consultation followed by a video appointment with a Bleach Colour Expert.
Tip 2. Knock out any yellow tones and create a clean base by using a toner. This colour correcting step is important, otherwise your pink will look more peach, for example.
Tip 3. Follow with the semi-permanent or temporary hair dye.
