We often relate pastel colours in hair as being “out there”. Pink has been wearing pastel pink in her hair for many years. Like all other fashions they start out being very dramatic and avant garde and as the look becomes more commercial it also becomes less dramatic. It’s funny when there is a new fashion or look in the pipeline people look at it and cringe. By the time the look has become mainstream, everyone is wearing it. Well guess what, pastels are going to be huge this spring and summer.


Have a look at who is already wearing pastels; Jennifer Hawkins is looking pretty in pink with some pastel pink through her locks. I think she would look great with any colour but that’s just my opinion. Also it’s great to see Jessica Rowe with a change of colour. Her pastel hair, I think, looks amazing.

At Hair by Phd we have been playing around with colours to produce some fantastic tones. Last week we had Damien Rayner one of Sydney’s if not Australia’s top colourist come in and do a training session with the team. We had a couple of girls have some pastel colours put through their hair and the results where amazing. Check out the two make-overs below.


Damien also worked with the team on some fantastic high-lighting techniques creating some amazing looks combining balayage and foiling together. We also transformed one of our models who had been colouring her hair black for about 3 years. We did some stunning highlights through her hair and we are going to work on getting her lighter whilst keep the integrity of her hair condition in tact.


The beauty of pastel colours there is such a wide variety of colours to choose from. You can have small subtle strands put in or be as bold as you would like to be. It also comes in hair chalk which you can apply to your hair for a special occasion and it just washes out.

So if you would like to have some fun this spring summer with pastel colours or have just feel like having a change of colour, what better time to do so than this spring. The team are ready and roaring to go, equipped with some really exciting ideas and techniques. Talk to your stylist next time you are in the salon.
