Many celebrities, mostly singers, but also models, actresses and TV personalities, want to make a strong statement with their hair and pink is just the color for a stylish but bold look. Discover which celebrities with pink hair rocked the look with the best results.
From Nicki Minaj’s wigs to Ellie Goulding’s pastel locks, check out the right ways to wear pink in your hair, thanks to these celebrities, who really knew how to make it work in a flattering and trendy way.
The latest celebrity to jump on the pink wig trend is Rihanna, but the singer already has a reputation for being a chameleon when it comes to her hair.
“We raided Nicki’s wig closet for the summer! Bad gals just wanna have fun!” Rihanna wrote on Twitter, where she showed off a short bubblegum pink wig, and became the newest addition to the list of celebrities with pink hair.
Rihanna can probably have all the pink wigs she wants from Nicki Minaj, since the singer has been trying to leave behind her colorful look for a more mature image. Minaj certainly helped pink wigs turn into a fashion phenomenon, and she’ll most likely come back to her signature image again.
One of the founders of the pink hair color trend, Pink has made the most out of her pink tresses, that she also dyed in blond or darker shades many times. Experimenting with everything from softer shades of pink to bright neon pink, the singer used her non-traditional hair choices and her music to send a message of empowerment to women everywhere.
The singer is no stranger to brightly colored locks, and she’s rocked the pink look quite a few times. Just line Pink, Katy Perry prefers to dye her hair pink rather than wear wigs, and that has resulted in a variety of excellent looks: from a long bob with soft pinkish tones to neon pink pin-up girl hairstyles.
Gwen Stefani’s fascination with pink started before her solo career, when she was still known for being the lead singer of No Doubt. Between her and Pink, celebrities with pink hair made a big splash in 2000, but it took almost another decade for the trend to really expand.
After dying her hair bright pink many times when she first started her music career, English singer Lily Allen turned her appearance at the 2014 BAFTAs into a tribute to her pink locks. She kept the dark hair, but added a cool a pink fringe accessory to her dramatic hairstyle.
Even if she turned purple into her signature hair color, Kelly Osbourne was also among the celebrities with pink hair when she trying to start her singing career. The bright pink might have been a good choice for teenage punk-pop Kelly, but as she matured into a “Fashion Police” co-host, she went for a more subtle approach.
Lead singer of Paramore, Hayley Williams loves bright pink hair and managed to make it work for a variety of cool styles, from retro to trendy. She’s also sported orange hair and even mixed it with pink in a shocking “Two Face” inspired hairstyle, half pink and half orange.
Unlike many celebrities with pink hair, who go for a bright neon shade, Ellie Goulding has mostly kept the pink in her hair a little softer. The subtle approach worked for the English singer. Even if the black roots are showing and she’s shaved one side of her head, Goulding still rocks pink tresses like a boss.
21 year old model Charlotte Free is also renowned for her signature pink hair. Signed by IMG, the model has recently worked for Maybelline, but her pink tresses also showed up in fashion campaigns for Forever 21, H&M, Topshop and Benetton. Unlike most models, who are willing to adapt their look depending on the theme of the shoot, Free has managed to keep her hair as pink as she wants it.
Another member of the first wave of celebrities with pink hair, Avril Lavigne rocked long pink tresses at the beginning of her career, then kept bringing back the pink mostly for highlighting purposes. Even if her hair isn’t always completely pink, Lavigne still managed to get the most out of her bold color choices.
