The spring season is approaching quickly, and before you know you’ll be enjoying the warm sunny days. How about getting a style shake-up?
This is the perfect time to try pastel hair shades that are soft, dreamy, and calming yet super stylish at the same time. If you are a blonde get your hair dye this instant but if you have dark tresses a little bit of bleach surely won’t hurt.
Pink, purple, blue, green, while the list of these pale nuances goes on, the following short pastel hairstyles will make your hair look even better!
Short Hairstyles with Pastel Colors
Express your fun and carefree side by opting for a short crop with the funkiest pastel tones on top!
1. Multi-Colored Mushroom Cut
Achieve a pop of color by adding streaks of your pastel shades unevenly all over the head.
2. Cotton Candy Pixie
Cotton candy hair is too good to be true. Take part in this sweet hair trend by adding light pink streaks on a pastel blue base or vice versa.
Try the look on a pixie and sweep the strands sideward for a funky yet office-friendly look. Yummy!
3. Pastel Purple Feminine Quiff
This messy short hairstyle with pastel colors in purple tones is perfect for all the bold ladies out there. Go for clipped sides and a long layered top with dark purple roots that lighten towards the ends.
Add silvers streaks for a frosted appeal and style the strands in a ruffled quiff.
4. Gray Undercut with Hidden Rainbow
Try peekaboo hair with a twist. Ask for a pixie with long bangs that shorten towards the nape into a V-shape with an undercut along the sides.
Add pastel rainbow colors along the sides and on the roots while painting the remaining hair bluish-gray. Simply stunning!
5. Pink Pop Layers
Pink hair is still in style. Celebrate your femininity with hot pink roots that turn pastel pink while reaching the tips. The key to achieving a seamless look lies in blending the colors perfectly together.
A textured shag with eye-covering bangs will look the best.
6. Frosted Silver Faux Hawk
Consider getting an androgynous short pastel hairstyle if you are not a girly girl type. Experiment with a pale steel blue nuance on a pixie cut.
Ask for plenty of texture and gather those strands on top in the middle to end up with a statement-making faux hawk.
7. Blue Gradient Bob with Bangs
Gradient hairstyles are quite common but dark roots transitioning quickly into a lighter tone are not something seen every day.
Show your love for pastel colors with denim blue roots and icy blue tips. Flaunt your new hair shade with a blunt bob and uneven thick bangs.
8. Short Crop + Contrasting Angular Fringe
Use your creativity to make sure your hairdo is one of a kind and here is an inspiration to start with. Try a super short textured crop with very long angular fringes that reach below the chin.
Add multi-tonal pastel stripes on the bangs keeping the remaining strands monochromatic. Wow!
9. Color Split French Bob
Dye half of the front in a contrasting shade to add a groovy touch to an otherwise sophisticated haircut. Pale blue and green won’t look bad!
10. Vibrant Color Melt
You can always add some vibrant shades if you find pastel tones too light. Make eyes pop wherever you go by chopping the mane into an angular short bob.
Set it on fire with fierce orange roots that melt seamlessly into a soft vanilla blonde tinge.
11. Icy Lavender Mullet
Get wild this year with a hipster mullet defined by V-shaped bangs at the front with pointy sideburns and a bunch of long curls at the back.
Add a metallic shine to your mane with a frosted lavender base and icy platinum babylights.
12. Soft Pastel Highlights
Highlights are a good idea for those hesitant to set step into the world of pastel colors. Consider getting a light base shade like this sterling silver to make the light pink and purple pop on top.
Get a sassy appeal with a face-hugging wedge cut and you won’t regret it!
13. Light Green Buzz
Take a break from your tresses and associated styling with a groovy buzz cut. You can snip the strands at uniformly all over the head or leave the top slightly longer.
Bleach the strands and dye them pastel green for a refreshed makeover that can be achieved at home with ease.
14. Yellow Wedge Cut
Get a summery look by choosing a bright pastel orange base shade. Don’t stop here; spice up your locks further by coloring the tips vibrant yellow for a dip-dyed effect.
A wedge cut with sharply disconnected bangs, side locks, and a long straight back is sure to turn around many heads.
15. Sunset Shullet
This short pastel hairstyle will bring an entire sunset on your head. The shullet is a softer version of the traditional mullet with buzzed sides, a forward-swept textured top, and a neck-length back.
All you need is a touch of deep purple, hot pink, orange, and pale flamingo pink!
16. Ultra-Modern Short Haircut
Can’t take off your eyes, right? If you’re confident enough to stand by your bold choices then this ultra-contemporary short hairdo is surely your shot.
17. Rose Brown + Powder Blue Streaks
Create an eye-catching light and dark interplay by combining chunks of soft rose brown with frosted powder blue streaks. Avoid any third shade to achieve a flawless two-toned look.
A layered pixie cut with thick side-swept bangs is ideal to conceal a wide forehead.
18. Lilac and Lavender Love
Lilac and lavender are one of the dreamiest shades of purple. The only difference is that the former has a pinkish undertone while the latter lies more on the bluish side.
Dye your bob in whatever order to end up with a dreamy gradient that won’t be ignored.
19. Pastel Color Blast
Purple and green create an eye-popping color contrast when it comes to hair. Go for a short shag with choppy layers and add varying pale tones of purple and green.
Some blue and yellow will make a huge difference. Don’t forget the brows!
20. Salmon Orange Choppy Bob
Here’s an idea for those who want a low-key short hairstyle with pastel colors. Get a chopped-up bob with a salmon orange base and a barely-there pastel orange balayage.
Don’t let go of your naturally dark roots completely and finish off with beach waves.
With style comes maintenance and all of these short pastel hairstyles require proper care to prevent the shades from fading too soon. Wash your hair less and with cold water using suitable shampoos and conditioners. Just a little effort and your hairdo will look like no one else’s!
