Pink Hair, Don’t Care: Pink Hair Hits the Fashion World
This season, one hair trend has emerged larger—and brighter—than any other: pink. Celebrities from Katy Perry to Sienna Miller recently have gone pink—and now it’s starting to pervade the high-fashion world as well. It was all over the front row during New York Fashion Week, on runways such as Thakoon—where models came down the runway with candy-colored hair—and even on the rapper Nicki Minaj, who frequented the shows in a ball of pink frizz.
“Pink hair used to be hair-show hair because it was very avant-garde,” says George Papanikolas, a colorist at the Andy Lecompte salon in Los Angeles. “I never thought I’d have to use it in the salon. Now I dye hair pink at least once or twice a week.” He says he uses products by a company called Joico that washes out in two weeks so it’s not as much of a commitment. “Pink has become more popular with blondes,” says Jen Atkin, an L.A.-based hair stylist for The Wall Group. “It can be very boring just being blonde.”
