This is such a Jessa move. Girls star Jemima Kirke dyed her hair pink in the most perfect way possible, by weaving it in with her blonde mermaid waves. And I’m kinda in love. She first stepped out with the look to an opera, proving that the Instagram-goddess look isn’t just for Coachella. 

Seriously, Kirke looks like the fairy princess of girlhood dreams and what’s even better is that she’s at an opera, proving that Crayola-hued hair can totally be appropriate for even the fanciest affairs when done right. More subtle (and way more trendy!) than super bright and neon shades, pastel colored hair has been spotted everywhere lately, and I for one can’t get enough of these candy-colored hues. Gone are the days of boring blonde highlights — we’ve officially entered the realm of unicorn locks. 

While crazy colors used to be iconic of only the punk and grunge phases of yesteryear, pastel shades are more applicable to a wider range of noggins — a more toned down, sophisticated, and softer color family that women in even more conservative work settings can confidently rock.

With gorgeous, luscious hues like baby blue, blush, lavender, peach, and mermaid mint, there’s a perfect shade out there for just about everyone. Just ask one of these celebs who have been absolutely owning their pastel-hued hair.

1. Nicole Richie

Ladylike lavender is surprisingly flattering on everyone! From Richie's golden undertones...
