We Love Pastels That Pack A Punch!

By BR Tabatha

Is there anything prettier than pastel hair? We're huge fans of the look at BRHQ, and we didn't think we could love it any more than we already did... until we discovered metallic pastels. Be still our hearts. They add a shine that elevates the colour, taking it to the next level. We're not the only fans of metallic pastels either. Check out these sublime looks!


The silver, the teal, the lilac... swooooooon! It's a show-stopping effect, and I want it on my head! Also, I want that top. I need that top. 


Is it just me or has it just got a little hot in here? Or is that the magnificent rose gold, coppery tones of this metallic pastel look? A little bolder, a little brighter, and absolutely beautiful.


If we had to pick a favourite look though, this could well be it. The purple and silver hues were made to be metallicised. The effect is divine.

Of course, not all of us have the time and money to spend on going to a stylist to attain these kind of looks, but lucky for us we can do it at home using Schwarzkopf Live's Metallics range.

Bit nervous to DIY it? Recently members of the Beauty Review Trial panel gave it a go - with some fabulous results! BR panellist annelangguth86 had this to say: 'I love the versatility of this product. It's fun and vibrant and as a wash out (lasts up to 8 washes) it's great for everyone of all ages looking to change their hair for a short time.'

BR panellist Shanley is my kinda gal and reckons it 'will be awesome for my New Years festivals'. Couldn't agree more!

Pro-tip? If you've longer hair and want an all over look? Grab two packs... maybe three if you want a BOOM of colour going on.

So what say you my beauties? Are you a fan of the metallic pastel look? What's your favourite shade? Is it a look you'll be rocking during these sunshiny months? Chat away!

I have just tried the Rose Gold, and in the past I have tried purple. I would like to do a metallic blue at some point.

Yep, purple is lovely.

I haven't dyed my hair in a really long time but I really like how this looks on other people.

I love this look but I am too dark -Lovely and summery so bring it on !!!

Wow! Looks awesome, I think I might have to give this a try over summer!

I do love me some pastel but I think I am too hooked on my red to stray far from it.

Your red does look pretty epic in this pic.

They can look really good when they're fresh and cared for.

I loved the blue. Made the gold and silver pop! And so shiny! Want to try the purple next.

I have dark hair so not for me but love the look on others for sure

I would love to do pastels but I'm quite pale so think it would make me look as white as a vampire. Keen to give it a try though, would it work on dark hair?

Haven't died my hair in ages either! Love these looks

It looks cool but I've just turned my hair dark again. When I next lighten it these will be on my to try list.

These look beautiful! I wish I could use this on my black hair without a hassle

Oh wow that rose gold looks so beautiful!

I would lov3 to do this but fear it would age me even more than I already am. But oh my gosh, the Rose Gold - divine!

Love it!! I would love to try this but my hair is dyed blonde and all different colours all over lol, I do it at home, I'd be a bit scared to try this - although it's a semi so would probably be ok hmmmmmmmmmmm
