Pink strands are both cute and bold. They make your locks look vibrant and expressive. From pastel pink tones to magenta shades – variations of pink are countless and specifically designed to match your mood. But what if we tell you that pink can also be edgy?
In this viral hair transformation video with over 7 million views and tons of likes, the hairstylists Alfredo Lewis and Philip Wolff are up for the challenge to turn their client from a Disney princess into a punky beauty queen.
This client asks for one thing – to do anything to her hair but with an edgy chic vibe. She hopes to refresh her pink locks and get rid of the grown-out roots. The idea is to combine different shades of pink to bring in some elegance and edginess at the same time. So, the colorist Alfredo Lewis opts for a freehand painting technique to create a pinky balayage by applying new colors over the previously done hair.
The client’s hair turns into a canvas that combines six different shades of pink, ranging from red and hot pink to bubblegum pink for a true melt of colors. The zig-zag placement of the hair dye blends the shades together, reimagining the pink palette and elevating the trendy hair tone. Deep ruby red is used to cover dark roots and contribute to a smooth transition between pink hues. The comment section goes all caps after this fiery hair transformation. “EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED HOT FIRE EDGY CHIC,” one follower mentions. “HOT EDGY CHIC LOVE IT,” another fan agrees.
The edgy vibe is mainly achieved through a soft shag that complements pink undertones. While attempting to do something fun and different, the hair stylists also aim for more movement and lived-in dimension to set off the client’s new hair color. The hair pro Philip Wolff creates a layered shag with a lot of texture spiced up with curtain bangs for a face-framing look.
The secret behind the edgy chic glam is the right styling. After using a detox shampoo, a mask, and some hair mist on pink locks, the stylist brushes it all out with a Tangle Teezer brush for extra shagginess. The traditional blowout hairstyle is further elevated with a hair dryer diffuser to add more texture and volume. The hair reveal is everything we expect from a pinky shag – it’s daring, elegant, and flattering. And most importantly – the client absolutely loves it!
