What is Red and Pink Hair?
Red and pink hair is available in a number of styles.
You can go for ombre look that gradually lightens from dark red to pink – or other way round – add red and pink highlights to your hair, or opt for a split look with bigger strands of each color.
If you want the rebel look, you can also split half and half and color each side of your hair with different color.
Just like any statement color, red and pink hair does require maintenance and use of proper color specialty products when taking care of your hair.
Especially this shade of color has the tendency to wash out pretty easily, or get bleached if you live in a sunny place – or are changing your hair color in the summer.
Following some simple maintenance tips below and listening to your hair stylist will ensure that the gorgeous bright color will last as long as possible.
Will Red and Pink Hair Look Good on Me?
Whether this hair color works for you really depends on your skin tone. It generally works well for lighter skin tones and will not look good on darker or olive skin.
If you’re not sure whether its a good match for your complexion, take some reference photos to your hairstylist and they might be able to recommend a variation of the shade that will work perfectly just for you.

Taking Care of Red and Pink Hair
As I mentioned earlier, proper care of this hair color is crucial to keep it looking the best, and not having to return to your hairstylist every few weeks.
- Make sure your hair stays properly hydrated by using a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week
- Choose colored hair shampoo and conditioner – this one caters specially to colored hair and ensures it stays hydrated and the color states vibrant
- If possible, avoid using heat on your hair after its been colored – it tends to dry it out very quickly and damage the hair color. If it cannot be avoided, use heat protection spray
