1. Medium-Length Curly Bright Pink Hair

Fantasy colors are fun to try out in the summer. The sun is out, the kids are out of school, and it’s time to let your hair down–maybe literally.

This medium-length bright pink hairstyle shows how simultaneously fun and classy fantasy colors can be. It blends together a range of bright pink shades to give this look a multi-dimensional finish. It starts out with rich, deep pink roots that blend seamlessly into lighter shades of fuchsia and hot pink closer to the ends. The deep pink roots of this hairstyle give this look a more natural finish and help extend the amount of time you can wait between root touchup appointments at the salon.

If you’re struggling to keep your fantasy hair color as bright as the sun outside, remember to always wash your hair in cold water and use a color-safe shampoo an conditioner to prevent your bright color from fading too quickly out of your hair. You should also try to avoid shampooing your hair too frequently, as excessive washing can definitely shorten the lifespan of your hair color–especially if your color is particularly bright. And here are more shoulder length hairstyles for you to choose from.
