Dusty pink hair is a vibrant, yet still muted, take on pastel. With its grey undertones, the shade is flattering for most skin tones. The style is characterized by a velvet look, while the gold variations of this trend have an almost translucent quality.

Stars like Constance Wu, Hillary Duff, and Machine Gun Kelly have rocked dusty rose pink, which is millennial pink's moody cousin. Better make good friends with your colorist, especially if you have naturally darker hair, as the trend will have you in the salon for hours.

Womanly curated seven interpretations of this fun, feminine shade for all genders. If you can pick one of these gorgeous shades, keep in mind that color tends to settle after a few days, so it is wise to get a shade darker to get a longer lifespan of the hue.

This is a classier iteration of mermaid hair characterized by its multiple shades of fantasy hair colors. The dusty pink ombre look works best in medium to long hair with a light curl.

With a significant investment in money and time, do not skimp on products to protect the color...

The most significant advantage of any ombre dye is that it is remarkably lower maintenance than coloring the whole head, making it a more affordable route that is kinder on your roots.

Rose with Silver

As silver is one of the perfect base colors for dusty pink, it also works beautifully as the starting point in an ombre effect with pink or the other way around.

How to Maintain Your Dusty Rose Pink Hair

While still high maintenance, dusty pink is slightly easier to maintain than the brighter hues in the blush and fuchsia family. Overwashing your hair and heat treatments, including the sun's UV rays, negatively impacts the vibrancy of your shade.

As with all vibrant shades, cut down on washing with dry shampoo or talcum powder. With a significant investment in money and time, do not skimp on products to protect the color, and ask your colorist for recommendations on color-specific shampoo and conditioner.

To get the most out of the conditioner, towel-dry your tresses first. The hair mask is a vital and often neglected step in the process to get the most mileage out of your blush hairdo and will protect your hair from breakage.

The number one rule of dusty rose hair color is avoiding box colors. Especially when it comes to bleaches, it is safer to trust your locks in the hands of a professional colorist who will mix a customized solution for the texture and health of your hair.
