Christina Aguilera Goes Lilac; Recreate Her Look Now
The creative color trailblazer, who has rocked everything from icy blonde to black dip-dyed ends, pink peek-a-boos, red and purple ombre and more throughout her career, combined this delicate shade with hair piercings to add edge to the overall style.
Her iridescent hair color is a great twist on the traditional pink hair trend and a stunning yet subtle way to begin incorporating creative color into a client's look for the upcoming summer season.
