Celebrate The New Year With Vibrant Pink Hair

Pink hair dye

Whether you want to end this year with a bang or are simply looking to switch up your look this January, there’s no  better way to turn heads than by flaunting bright pink locks – and we’re here to help. From the best way to use semi-permanent pink hair dye to how to maintain pink hair, our top tips will help you make a statement. 

Choose Your Pink Hair Shade

First things first, you’ll need to decide what shade of pink you want to go for. From light pink hair to deep magenta, there’s a whole spectrum to choose from.


To rock the brightest pink locks on the block for up to 30 washes, we recommend using our semi-permanent PINK RIOT HAIRBOX COLOURANT. If you want to know how to get pastel pink hair, our CORAL BLUSH is the perfect peachy shade. 

If this isn’t your first home-dye session though, then why not mix it up a bit? Our PAINTBOX semi-permanent dyes are designed to be mixed and matched, so you can create your dream hue. If you’re in need of some inspo, take a look at the colour chart below. When it comes to pink hair dye, there’s a perfect shade for everyone.

How To Use Pink Hair Dye

It’s never been easier to switch up your signature look than with the Fudge PAINTBOX dyes. An ammonia and peroxide-free formula means that no messy pre-mixing is required. Simply apply for instantly bolder, brighter tresses.


Step 1. It’s All In The Prep

Before your pink hair transformation gets underway, you’ll need to shampoo your tresses and gently towel dry them. Put on some gloves and you’re ready to get down to the fun bit!


Step 2. Apply Your Pink Hair Dye

Whether you’ve opted for PINK RIOTCORAL BLUSH or your own signature blend, it’s time to apply your chosen semi-permanent Fudge PAINTBOX colour to your locks. Carefully comb the pink hair dye evenly through the length of your tresses, taking care to keep your scalp and skin clean.


Step 3. Wait While The Magic Happens

For maximum vibrancy, cover your locks in a plastic cap and leave the colour to develop for 15 to 30 minutes.


Step 4. Rinse And Condition

Rinse your hair with warm water until the water starts to run clear. Because our PAINTBOX range is deeply conditioning, you don’t even need to condition your tresses afterwards. Win!


Step 5. Get Ready To Flaunt Seriously Pink Locks  

Et voila! With your new pink look, you’ll be turning heads wherever you go!

Top Tips For The Perfect Pink

Now that you’ve got the basics covered, there are several things you can do to keep pink hair looking fresher for longer.


How To Maintain Pink Hair

Depending on your hair type and colour, FUDGE PAINTBOX lasts from 3 to 30 washes. To keep slaying your new signature colour for longer, switch out your usual shampoo and conditioner for our DAMAGE REWIND RECONSTRUCTING SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER.


Enriched with damage-treating OptiPLEX™ and HairGuard™ technology, this hair strengthening duo helps to prevent colour fade for up to 33 washes. 

How To Tone Down Pink Hair

If a subtle shade is more your style, simply mix your pink hair dye with our WHITER SHADE OF PALE colour to create a new, lighter hue.  

There’s no time like the new year to try something new and switch up your look. So, why not give pink hair a go? Whether you go for a pastel, deep fuschia or a light pink hair shade, we’re here to help with all your pink hair dye needs!
