So you know when you’re on snapchat and you use that dreamy rose filter and your hair color  looks like it has the teeniest bit of rose in it? Ashley and I decided we wanted that to be on her head… all day, every day, IRL. We wanted something new and fun for her character in her upcoming spin off of Young & Hungry. (Not to mention it will match perfectly with every palette and lip in her widely anticipated ILLUMINATE by Ashely Tisdale makeup line!) Once we posted these photos, we got a ton of people wanting to know how to get it so we wanted to share!

Rose Filter IRL is the prettiest and so easy to achieve and I’m going to show you how you can do it at home. It’s safe and as temporary as you want it to be. You can keep it up or it can fade away in 2-3 washes. Whatever you decide, here’s how it’s done!

You have to start with naturally blonde, pre-lightened (bleached) or highlighted hair. This won’t really show up on dark hair because it’s so pastel but if you have blonde highlights throughout your dark hair it will be great! If you need help on doing that yourself– go HERE!

Jess has a couple of clip-in extensions and we’re going to color those seperately, using the same color.

This is an extremely simple process. You will need 3 (maybe 4) things…

  • A color bottle
  • THIS PASTEL COLOR ( once you click here, use the drop-down menu to select “rose quartz”)
  • 2 oz warm water
  • gloves (optional)


  • mix your color and water in a applicator bottle and take it into the shower.
  • shampoo hair in the shower.
  • apply your color all over in the shower and wait 5 minutes.
  • rinse hair thoroughly.
  • condition with your normal conditioner.
  • air dry or blow-dry

For extensions:

  • do the same thing, just in the sink.
  • never color them while clipped into your hair. it will definitely complicate things.

This is the final look on blonde hair. Results may vary based on tone of your blonde hair. The thing I love most about this is it’s just a little hint of rose– not full blown pink. In the sunlight it’s neither here nor there, a little blonde and a little pink! It washes out quickly so the commitment is minimal and it’s easy to do on yourself (PERFECT for this long, sunny, upcoming MD weekend!)

Would love to see photos if you end up getting this and trying it! If you use it, tag us on insta @thebeautydept and we’ll repost!




CLEARLY we’re overly obsessed with rose, rosé and champaign hair colors right now, so why not another simple summer braid tutorial on hair that’s just been colored? This particular pony/braid combo is one of the easiest things to do if you know how to do a simple french braid. You can do this on hair that’s medium to long in length, and you can add some extensions if your hair is too fine or tends to lack texture. We didn’t add clip-ins here but if you need some, do it! Alright, here’s how get the look…

Start with dry hair. It can be clean or not. If it’s a lil dirty, just add a burst of DRY SHAMPOO to the root.

  1. Start by taking a triangular section on the side. The size of the section will depend on the amount of hair. If you have super thick hair, take a slightly smaller section. If you have thinner hair, you’ll want to take a little more hair. I usually take a section from the hairline to right behind the ear.
  2. Next, create an inside-out or dutch braid with that section and tie it off loosely with a clear elastic.
  3. Add a little TEXTURE POWDER to the entire braid, all the way from the top to the tail.
  4. Gently “pancake” your braid, meaning pull it apart to fatten it up/widen it.
  5. Once you have your braid thickened up and textured, add veil of fine mist hairspray all over everything that’s not in the braid. Here we used THIS ONE because it’s great for thickening up fine hair, but if you have thick hair or any damage from color, you know I love THIS ONE.
  6. Now grab everything, the braid and the rest of the hair and gather into a high pony. Secure using a thicker stronger elastic or PONYTAIL HOLDER.
  7. Take a small strand of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the ponytail holder to cover it up, then pin underneath using a bobbypin. If you want to you can take the clear elastic out now. The texture powder should hold it in place but you can also do a teeeeeny back combing at the bottom to get it to stay.
  8. Check the balance of it all in a hand mirror. Make it as full or as textured as you want. Add some wave with a wand if desired!

Are you guys feeling the rose hair trend? It’s such a subtle hint of color and we’re obsessed! xx

When it comes to super short hair, you often find yourself to be slightly limited with styling options. That’s why we thought it would be great to show you how to temporarily add a little length using extension wefts. This gives you a bit more versatility with your look. We’re pretty obsessed with Meagan Good’s short + sassy style. It’s really short in the back and gets longer toward the front. We’ve seen short hair on both Rihanna + Pink for years, but there’s something less edgy about this– it’s a very feminine, chic, flirty hairstyle. We’re so excited to show you how to play with length. Here we go! (more…)

By now you know we love pink hair. We do it often around here. But… most people can’t get away with having pink hair at work or school. Well, there’s a new favorite in town. This Davines Alchemic “Red” color conditioner turns medium to light hair into a temporary pale pink dream! (more…)
