Stars like Julianne Hough, Katy PerryNicole Richie, and most recently, Hilary Duff have started wearing the season’s “hautest” color palette in their hair.

Katy Perry and Nicole Richie have literally tried out just about every tone of the spectrum in the past and settled on lavender and pink for the time being, but Duff’s shift in shade came as the most surprising, as blonde has long been her signature.

If the recent wave of pastel hair has you wanting to go for a bright new hue, start by taking your base color into consideration. Naturally-dark hair like Perry’s and Richie’s will require extensive bleaching for the technicolor effect to take place, so make sure to seek out a professional,preferably one who knows a thing or two about creative color—so you can get your desired results with minimal damage.

If you’re starting with a lighter base like Duff’s blonde, your transition will be much easier!  Keep in mind that you will need to refresh your hue often, as the color molecule in pastel dyes is larger, meaning it slides out of the hair follicle much easier, and is prone to fading.
