Pink hair isn’t anything new, but I’ve been admiring model Charlotte Free’s soft pastel pink hair as of late and since the first time I saw it last December.  The soft pastel trend keeps on going and hints to me of spring and summer.  A perfect color for the season upon us, and not too hard to obtain yourself.  The ladies from The Beauty Department also offer up some how-to’s on getting that pepto hue, from chalking to color conditioner, a full head or just dip-dyed, see below for more pinks and links!
