Hair colors inspired by beverages are not such a new thing anymore (think Starbucks unicorn frappuccino and mulled wine). The new trend is now on the block and it comes from the refreshing summer drink, pink lemonade. Constance Wu debuted pink lemonade hair on Instagram a few days ago and girls are already going crazy about it.

According to Wu’s hairdresser, Ara Ko, the process of getting the color took eight hours. She spoke for Elle saying: “The ends are actually just blonde because they didn’t get light enough to take the pink color very well. There is less heat at the ends of the hair than the roots so, therefore, it does not process as quickly.”

She had a few tips for girls who want to copy the style:

“Be patient, trust your stylist. It may take a few sessions to achieve the desired color. Avoid any box color or dark hair dye, even if it is professionally done. Wash your hair as little as possible with cool or lukewarm water [because] hot water will strip out color.”
