Elsa Hosk's Newly Dyed Rose-Gold Hair Is Everything and More

Updated 08/09/18

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 colour 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 colour 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.

Take a look and see for yourself.

Helen Mirren surprised and delighted fans with this allover temporary colour. At the time, she said, "I just thought it would be fun to dye my hair pink." Get the look with Bleach London Super Cool Colour in The Big Pink (£6).

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 colourist 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.

We love the placement of the pink in Lady Mary Charteris's hair. Avoiding the roots and underneath pieces gives the colour a more lived-in feel.

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 colour 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."
