Pretty in Pink: Get the Look
The first step to achieving the look is to clean your hair with White Sands Orchid Bliss Shampoo and Conditioner. Hamilton uses a pink mybotto inverted bottle holder that allows her to get “all of the shampoo and conditioner out of the bottle, to the very last drop.”
Next, she applies a few pumps of volumizing mousse for life and texture evenly from the roots to the tips of P!nk’s hair. After that, she blow-dries her hair with a medium round boar bristle brush. Then she clips extension pieces into the crown of her hair and makes sure to leave the perimeter out. “If your hair is fi ne or a bit short, I suggest using clipin extensions to achieve P!nk’s Marilyn style,” she explains. “Approximately three pieces should do the trick.”
After that, she sprays the hair with a heat protectant such as White Sands Liquid Texture — Firm, curling the entire head with a medium to large curling iron. If you want streaks for playful colour, Hamilton suggests applying HyperColor Hair Powder with a makeup brush and then setting the style with a medium hold hairspray, while teasing the roots a bit.
The gutsy rock star has proven that even the colour pink can be bold. Now her stylist, Marcia Hamilton, opens up about this season’s hottest trends.
