From pink and blue highlights to half and half hair, there are different ways you can pull this color combination off.
As a hair colorist, I have done all kinds of pink and blue hair styles for clients over the years. So, I know exactly how many variations there are and what works best.
Here are the top looks that you should know about.
Do you only want to dip your toe into the pink and blue hair color trend? If so, getting pink and blue highlights in your hair is a first great step.

When getting your pink and blue hair streaks, there are several options available. If you like blue and pink hair equally, you can have alternate streaks so that they balance out each other.
Of course, if you have a favorite, you can choose that shade as the dominant one.
If you want a softer look, go with pink and blue shades that suit your natural hair color. For instance, with blonde hair, choose pastel pink and blue hair. Baby blue and pink hair is also a good option here.
If you have dark hair, you can opt for fuchsia pink hair and a dark blue shade.
Pink and blue hair is a hot trend, but you might not be willing to go all the way with it. Here is another cute way to pull this look off with minimal commitment.
The most common option for blue and pink balayage is to have alternating streaks at the tips. This is the result:

If this is a style you’re going for, pay attention to the shades you pick. Dark locks work better with brighter hues like fuchsia and indigo blue while light hair is more suited to light or pastel shades.
Underlights refer to when only the bottom layers are dyed. The top layers of your hair cover these colors so that they aren’t as noticeable. This is a great option if you want pink and blue hair but need to keep things somewhat professional for work or school.
With underlights, you can choose to only dye the layers at the back of your head. Or, you can dye the hair in a 180 degree fashion.
If you are only dyeing the back of your head, you can dye one thick strip as blue hair and the other as pink. For underlights that go all around your head, it would be better to do narrower streaks of blue and pink.
The exact shades will depend on the effect you want. Need something bright? Then try fuchsia pink hair with indigo blue.

If you want pink to take up most of the colored hair and to have blue highlights, there are a few different pink and blue hair looks that you can choose from.
For the two colors to blend in together well, choose pink and blue shades that complement one another.
However, if you want your blue highlights to stand out against the pink, go with indigo blue for a pastel pink or a pastel blue against a fuschia pink.
