How to Get Pink Ombre Hair at Home
If you’re interested in ombre hair but don’t want to pay hundreds to get it done, it can be achieved at home. You’ll want to start this process on day-old (as opposed to freshly washed) hair so that the “oiliness” you feel can protect your strands from the harshness of the chemicals.
Also, remember that if your hair is darker (brown or black) you will need to lift the color from your ends by bleaching the hair before applying the color so that the color is prominent. If you try the process without bleached ends, it will not show.
Pink hair dye typically lasts for about 3-4 weeks before you need a touch-up, but if you wash your hair multiple times a week, it may fade even sooner than that. Many women typically make appointments to revive their coloring bi-weekly, so keep that in mind before dyeing your hair.
Here is a great step-by-step video instruction on how to achieve hot pink ombre hair at home.

Pink Ombre vs Pink Highlights
If you’ve ever wondered what the difference between an ombre and a highlight is, then we’re here to take away your confusion!
Pink ombre means hair that is dyed in a way that the pink color seems natural. Pink ombre hair requires you to have two different shades of hair and one shade gradually transforms into the other along the length of the hair.
On the other hand, when you get pink highlights, certain locks of hair from different parts of your head are dyed pink! In this case, there is no gradual shift from one color to the other.
If you want to experiment with pink ombre hair without the damage or permanence of bleaching and dyeing, there are hair chalks that you can apply to the hair (that don’t rub off on your clothes) to achieve a similar look. All of these looks for pink ombre hair will have you feeling confident. Once you decide your favorite color combination, it’s just a matter of heading over to the salon to make it happen!
