8 Celebs Who Went Bold with Candy Colors

Statement-making hair colors have trended on the runway, amongst celebrities and have trickled their way into the salon. This year alone we have seen a rise in demand for flirty pastel hair colors and vibrant primary colors. Peep these celebs that opted to go big and bold with their hair hues:

Julianne Hough went for cotton candy colored hair by by Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon.



Kylie Jenner returns to Aqua blue hair and embraces her inner mermaid for Coachella with a hair color transformation by Sarah Conner who said, “for Kylie’s hair we wanted to stay in the blue family but keep it more on the pastel side since she’s already had various tones of darker blues. I used a couple of different shades to create the perfect minty-baby blue for her.”



We’ve got all the deets about her vacation inspired haircolor by Amber Maynard at Nine Zero One here.

If you are thinking of playing with this color trend take a hue cue from Meche Colorist Sarah Conner, “when going for a more pastel look, it’s important to think about the longevity and the maintenance of the color you’d like. Pastels wash out/fade out quickly. So they require quite a bit of upkeep. If you want it to last longer, you may want to go slightly darker with the tone and it’ll gradually get lighter and more baby pastel with each wash.”

Riawna Capri of Nine Zero Onerecommends taking her 3 ‘C’s of hair wisdom into consideration — commitment, coiffure (styling), and color” when going for a bold hair color change!
