View Full Version : Rose Gold/Pink Hair?? (lots of pics)

March 13th, 2012, 03:25 PM
I really love the new rose gold trend. I've been obsessed with pink hair since I learned Marie Antoinette sported it and then even more so when I saw Kirsten Dunst in Maria Copolla's movie.

I think the faded pink would look awesome in my hair. How do I get this color and it has to be temporary dye as I don't want to have to strip, bleach or (horror!) cut it off.



I like the ombre look as well...

Manic panic cupcake pink or a similar temporary dye diluted with conditioner, I've personally used a mix of half a teaspoon of colour to 6 teaspoons of conditioner on blonde hair to give a baby pink. Comb or rub through dry ends then leave for 20 minutes for a pale look, longer for more intense colour.

If your hair is darker than the first models you may need to add more pink to the mix for a visable colour, but you can always dye again straight after its dried and add more if you need to.

It's a really pretty look, post pics if you do :)

Hey thanks! I was thinking of diluting with conditioner. How long did the pink last in your blonde?

That looks very pretty! I second the manic panic mixed with conditioner. Should work pretty well. It will probably last only a little while, because of being diluted with the conditioner. So about 3 washes I'm guessing.

Marie Antoinette had pink hair? How did she get that colour back then I wonder??

I'd do a strand test, if you're paranoid about it sticking. I wanted rihanna's hair from the man down video, and my strand test made it look exactly like hers. Too bad it didn't matter how many times I washed that strand or how long it was out in the sun, it never came out.

That looks GORGEOUS! I want to try it now.

What kind of conditioner would you use to dilute the color?

March 13th, 2012, 05:50 PM
What an interesting color! A girl with bleach-blond hair came into my cosmetology school the other day asking for faded pink tips. I thought it was a strange request at the time, but I guess it's rather popular :p.

I'll def do a strand test and I have some human hair extensions that match my color I use to torture before I experiment on my own.

March 13th, 2012, 06:38 PM
Um, quiero! I really want to try something like this, even though I have black hair. Maybe if I bleach a streak for fun?

March 13th, 2012, 06:42 PM
I love it! I've been considering light pink or blue streaks for a while now, and this is very close to what I was thinking. I'll definitely be excited about pictures if you do it!!

There used to be a shade of haircolor dye called "blush blonde". It looked fantastic on fair, blue eyed blondes.

If you're blond, kool-aid might be a very temporary option.

In my white streak the pink conditioner mix I mentioned lasted a month before fading out, but thats over massive bleach damage. On natural hair it would fade faster most likely... However a strand test is a good idea if youre worried it may stain :)

I've also used everything from aussie miracle to VO5 as the conditioner, but a coney one means it will fade faster too.

Oh and you could wet your hair and rub it with a pink chalk for a temporary colour boost if its blonde already.... This washes out but looks very cute. Search you tube for chalking hair or pastel hair.

I took a peek at your albums and this is going to look gorgeous on you. You might have to do some experimenting to get it the right color, so I would do some strand tests. If your hair is virgin you might want to go with a more intense color (like manic panic Hot Hot Pink) because virgin hair doesn't absorb as much pigment as bleached or color treated hair.

Marie Antoinette had pink hair? How did she get that colour back then I wonder??

Beets? They stain my skin pink. Just a guess. :D

Light blue, grey, lilac, white, and pink hair powders were de rigeur at the French court throughout the reigns of Louis XV and Louis XVI. It was hard to maintain light colored clothes and hair, so they were status symbols. And since everything was candle-lit, light colors were more attention getting.

Wearing your hair natural and unpowdered was almost shocking at this time period, and extremely old fashioned.

So when Marie Antoinette wanted to be rebellious... she wore her hair without powder :).

(some sources will say she wore wigs, but it's actually pretty doable to reproduce her favorite hairstyles with long enough natural hair, and her portraits don't show wig lines. but men's portraits and some women's portraits do... and it would have been insanely expensive to get a wig long enough to do her hairstyles.)

If you are a lighter blonde, you could also try hair chalking with light pink chalk for a temporary look:


I think this would be super cute with spring coming up!

Thanks for the chalk idea! At least it will definitely give me an idea of whether or not I like it or not (although I'm sure I will!) I googled and found a couple pics of Manic Panics Mystic Heather mixed with Virgin Snow on blonde hair and it was very pretty!

Ohhh! The Marie Antoinette powdered hair comment reminded me of this:


Blue and pink powdered hair on the 2012 Thakoon runway show...cool effect, but looks a little, well...powdery. :) lol

I have soft chalk pastels!!! I'm so going to do this. :D :D :D

March 14th, 2012, 09:42 PM
I like your hair.

March 14th, 2012, 09:55 PM
If your talking about my hair then thank you :)

And LOL at that powdered hair! That's dramatic and def powdery. Marie Antoinette's powder was much more pastel and pale. If you google it you can find portraits of her with her pink hair although I've also read conflicting articles stating she NEVER powdered her hair. Maybe she powdered the elaborate structures her hair dresser applied?

She's a lady after my own heart though. Blonde, pink, hairstyle junky lol.
