As we’ve seen with mulled wine and Starbucks unicorn frappucinos, there’s no shortage of beverages that have inspired new hair color trends. The latest comes from the most aesthetic summer refreshment: pink lemonade. The hue, more pastel than Pepto and with a tinge of yellow/peach, debuted on Constance Wu when she Instagrammed new pink strands on February 19. From her shadow roots to the cool-toned blush hue with ends dipped in blonde, one glance will have you ready to dive into a bleach cycle.

Wu’s colorist, Ara Ko, told ELLE.com the entire process started at 6pm and didn’t finish until 2am—that’s eight hours. “The ends are actually just blonde because they didn’t get light enough to take the pink color very well,” she explained. “There is less heat at the ends of the hair than the roots so therefore it does not process as quickly.” Intentional or not, the finished ombré effect is utterly cool.

As for achieving this shade, especially if you have naturally dark hair like Wu’s, Ko suggested, “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.” As for maintenance, the key is to “wash your hair as little as possible” (she recommends once a week), and to use “cool or lukewarm water [because] hot water will strip out color.”

Ahead, see Instagram’s early adopters already embracing the dark roots and rose-to-blonde look seen on Wu. Before you know it, everyone will be thirsty for pink lemonade hair.
