Bubblegum, watermelon, millennial — there are a plethora of pink hair colors out there to experiment with. Pink hair can be as bold and subversive or demure and delicate as you want it to be, depending on which shade you choose. Before booking an appointment with your hairstylist to take on a rosier outlook (or before making a quick trip to the store to pick up a box of dye), peek at these styles for the ultimate pink hair inspiration. Once you find your favorite look, be sure to show the picture from the list below to your stylist so they know just the right shade of hair dye to whip up for you.
Allow Dej Loaf to demonstrate how to rock a bowl cut — and actually make it look cool. The rapstress hit the 2018 BET Awards red carpet with a version of the cropped style in what hairstylist Kellon Deryck calls an "icy white"hue, punctuated by pink tips.

Cyndi Lauper told Allure in a recent interview that she was planning to dye her hair blue before realizing that her current hair color was the same color as the marketing for the Women's March.
