Pink hair isn't going anywhere. In fact, whether it's being called rose gold, rose quartz or rosé, it seems that pink hair always finds a way to reinvent itself and stay on our radar. Where it was once a frivolous color reserved for summer holidays and festivals, now the A-list proves that while pink hair is undeniably fun, it also can look seriously chic. And you don't have to go all-out with a heavy color if you don't want to. Sienna Miller and Hailey Baldwin prove that a subtle hint of pink can look understatedly beautiful—or throw caution to the wind and do a Helen Mirren.

Not sold on a true pink? Make like Amber Le Bon and try a more peachy-pink instead.
Irene Kim proves pastel pink can look just as good in winter. To get this look, you'll need to get a colorist to lighten your hair with bleach before adding the pink on top. Keep your dyed hair in good condition with an intensely hydrating hair mask.
Okay, so this was a wig, but experimenting with wigs and clip-in hair pieces isn't a bad idea. If your hair is black or brunette, you'll need to bleach it, so this is a fun temporary option.

Model Fernanda Ly's pink hair is a DIY job. She told Harper's Bazaar Australia that it took time to reach that enviable pink: "My natural hair color is really, really, really, really, really dark black so when I first dyed my hair it was like weirdly brown, orangey, and really bad! So then I went to dark red—the whole head. From red, I went to blonde." She uses Redken products to keep her hair in great condition: "Those things are worth the price."
