When you go pastel, you don't actually go straight for the colour you want. "To get these amazing pastel or bright colours your hair will need to be lifted to the lightest blonde possible, ideally platinum, before applying the blue, pink or violet colour," Aleks explains. His favourite brand to get that coloured pastel look? "Manic Panic have vegan friendly fabulous violets and blues." If you're already light blonde and want to give yourself the colour at home, we like Dare Temporary Hair Colour in No.5 Flamingo Feather ($19.95).
