Pastel Is the New Trending Tone for Men Hair Color

Award-winning men’s hairdresser Jim Shaw shares his thoughts on this spring’s recent trendy style: pastel hair color.

With us now in spring, pastels are one of the biggest trends we are seeing this Season. Pastel colors are fashionable again in spring year after year, but for 2023 pastel colors have a more contemporary and elegant update. Here are some of my favorite, current and fashionable ways for male clients to wear pastel colors this year…


For men, a good way to wear pastel colors this spring is to combine the chosen pastel shade with your natural shade, especially if you have a longer haircut on top and shorter on the sides. I love to cut my clients’ hair on the sides to reveal their natural hair color, then bleach and tint the upper and longer part of the hair. It creates a super cool and whimsical contrast. I especially like this Look with a steel gray tone on top or a sapphire one. This is a great way for male clients to update their Look with color without opting for an overly bold/meaningful shade.

High Gloss

Adding an Opulent/pearlescent toner is another way for male customers to add a current finish to their 2023 pastel shade. By giving the hair an opulent/pearlescent finish instead of the ordinary soft pastel, the hair gets a more expensive, luxurious and very shiny look.


Ash/silver blondes have been in fashion for quite some time, but as we enter the warmer months, we will see hair colors become much warmer. Now it’s time for men to go blonde and if you’re feeling bold and adventurous, try yellow! A pastel yellow/blonde shade can look great when combined with the right cut. I think it looks especially elegant with a crew cut. It’s such a fun and playful color and is perfect for men with a bubbly personality.

To make them blink

With the upcoming release of the Barbie movie, pink being a major trend on the catwalks for women and men, and the Barbiecore trend growing on social networks, it is inevitable that pastel pink shades will be a resounding success when it comes to fashionable hair colors.for men this spring. Pastel pink looks awesome on men who are already blond (if you are a brunette, you must first pre-lighten your hair) and fade perfectly from the hair. Pink is also always a popular choice because it works well on all skin tones.


For those who are feeling bold and adventurous, combining two or three pastel shades is another modern way for male clients to wear their pastel hair for 2023. The combination of sapphires, pinks and greens creates an incredible rainbow-inspired shade that turns heads.

Make it the last one

The key to keeping this men’s spring hair trend alive a little longer? Hair care! Customers should be informed about the use of a high-quality professional shampoo and conditioner for colored hair. You should also consider using a hair mask once a week to keep your hair in perfect condition and sealed. Heated styling tools can naturally cause discoloration, so it is important for customers to know that if they have to use a heated styling, they should always protect their hair with a thermal protective spray first.
