Another day, another gorgeous hair change, but this one is actually doable at home, especially if you have the right products. Let me explain to you. Elle Fanning’s pastel pink hair was a big surprise when the actress showed up on her Instagram Stories this week, but considering she isolates herself like the rest of us, it’s not that surprising that she made a DIY beauty change. It can be tempting to pluck your eyebrows or cut and dye your hair when you’ve been home for weeks staring at what you’ve become. But put down the shears and get some inspiration from Fanning.

We don’t yet have any details on why or how Fanning dyed her hair pink, but it’s not the first time. She’s played with candy pink hair over the years. Since she’s stuck at home like the rest of us, chances are she’s used some hair dye in the shower at home, probably semi-permanent that will wear off after a few weeks. Since the actress is a spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris, she could have used the brand’s Colorista semi-permanent hair color for Light Bleached or Blondes in Pink ($9.58 at Amazon). It’s easy to do at home and fades in 4-8 shampoos.


She showed what it looks like dry while cooking dinner. This is so pretty one.

Of course, L’Oreal Paris isn’t the only brand people love for pastel hair colors. Overtone’s Pastel Pink Hair Color Conditioner ($29 at Overtone) turns streaks pink while softening them at the same time. If you fancy trying something different at home, these color conditioners are far less likely to damage your hair or ruin your current color, especially if you only use them once or twice.
