There are hair transformations and then there’s Belle Hassan’s latest hair transformation. The make-up influencer, who found fame on Love Island 2019 series, has just switched up her look with the help of pink money-piece fringe sections – and the result is gorgeous.

Belle, 24, has undergone a two-step transformation process to get to this final look. The first step started in October 2022 when she bleached the front sections of her hair a light blonde. With the rest of her hair remaining a dark, ashy brunette, this was already quite a dramatic move. Now, she’s taken the style one step further by dyeing those blonde sections (named “money-piece highlights” by hair experts) a punchy rosy pink shade.

The former Islander has been showing off her new look in a recent Instagram grid post captioned “Pretty in pink”.

Belle’s near-1M Instagram followers have been quick to let the influencer know how incredible she looks with the new colour. Plenty of commenters also seem inspired to try out a pink hair colour for themselves after seeing Belle’s final look.

“Do I need pink hair now?” questions one, while a second says: “So pretty, love the pink”.

A third adds: “Your hair is everything”.

Belle has also used a bit of make-up wizardry to make sure the pink hair complements her skin tone perfectly. She’s done this by matching the exact pink hue of her fringe to her eyeshadow. With baby pink lids, graphic black eyeliner and diamanté detailing on her creases, the star has certainly mastered the “modern influencer” look.

If you’re also inspired by Belle’s rosé-tinted tresses, you’ll be delighted to know that you’ll be bang on trend with your hair because pinks, purples and pastels are making a comeback for early 2023. Dubbed “Gemini hair”, this colourful look is created by choosing two contrasting colours.

“Gemini hair doesn’t always have to be split down the middle, it can be one-sided panelling, a two-toned top or underneath, or even a two-tone front and back!” explains Kayleigh Johnson, INNOluxe ambassador. “To nail this look, it’s essential to achieve a crisp, clean symmetrical line right down the parting.”

We think we can safely say Belle has indeed nailed this trend.
