The Psychology of Pink and Yellow Hair
Whenever you make any momentous changes to your appearance, you are bound to get questions from the people around you.
‘Why pink and yellow?’ has been one of the most common and repetitive questions we get.
So why are you getting pink and yellow hair?
Apart from being trendy, the colors have a larger spiritual significance in many cultures.
Pink is mostly associated with femininity and youthfulness.
Some cultures like the Japanese draw inspiration from cherry blossoms and view pink as a sign of joy and happiness.
On the other hand, yellow is most often seen as a symbol of positivity, happiness, and creativity.
In Indian cultures, yellow is linked with the sun and viewed as the nurturer of life.
Whatever your reasons may be for choosing these special colors, they are bound to look flattering once you know the right cut and shade for your skin type and face shape.
Achieving and Maintaining Pink and Yellow Hair
The key to keeping pink and yellow hair looking good is maintaining its vibrancy.
If you want to avoid dull and lifeless hair, avoid sulfate shampoos and limit your hair washes to once a week.
Do away with heat styling and reduce water temperatures when washing your hair.
Lastly, visit the salon as and when needed for a gloss treatment or a touch-up to keep your hair looking fresh and luscious.
Styling Pink and Yellow Hair
Styling pink and yellow hair can be tough.
Depending on the hair color style you go for (ombré, dip dye, balayage, or global), you can choose to emphasize your hair color with updos, buns, or even loose curls.
If you’re working with a shorter length, use some accessories to make your hairdos extra fun!
Another important and handy tip is to coordinate your makeup with your hair.
Use similar shades in your eyeshadow or lipstick to really make your whole look come together.
Lastly, use your wardrobe to make the hair stand out.
Go for subtle and neutral colors or even pastel shades to make your hair the hero of your look!
Potential Challenges and Considerations
As you get swayed with pink and yellow hair ideas, it is important to consider the consequences of a drastic hair color change.
They range from hair damage and color fading to larger systemic problems such as lack of acceptance in workplaces.
Being aware of these issues may help you avoid some difficult situations.
If you’re unsure about going all in, we would recommend starting with some temporary hair dyes before you’re completely sure.
These dyes would last for shorter periods and fade with every wash.
Temporary dyes would also be less harsh on your hair but this would mean a less intense hair color.
Change your hair, change your life.
If you’re looking to shake up the usual and add a pop of color in your life, pink and yellow hair is the style to go with.
Go with your gut and consult your hairstylist along the way, and you will have the look of the season!
