Pastel Goth, before it eventually turned into a stable part of alternative aesthetic, made a long way from classic goth culture through vintage grunge wave from the west, and kawaii, cute aesthetic from the east. Before the culture got its name – it was called Nu-Goth and later Soft Grunge and Pastel Grunge, and it started gaining popularity around 2010 on Tumblr.
Korean “Ulzzang” and Harajuku fashion played its final role in seasoning grunge looks with cuteness and pastel flavor.

Hairstyle and hair color is, probably, the most important core element of Pastel Goth look. It’s going to affect the most on your overall look and set the “main tone”. If you have a naturally dark hair color then bleaching will be your starting point.
By choosing color you should look in the direction of soft mint, flamingo pink, light turquoise, and salmon red. We strongly advise you to use green only for gradient and secondary tone.
Split Hair Color & Pastel Goth Wigs
Split coloring may be helpful if you want to be more creative with your look or simply can’t decide which color you like the most, but here’s the thing… It’s easy to overdo with black or too soft light colors and cross the border of Pastel Goth hairstyle. Be smart with dyes bae.
????? Once you decided to try, there are many choices!
There’s always an alternative to hair bleaching and coloring. There’s a ton of natural-looking wigs for a reasonable price that can give you freedom of choice.
Pastel Goth Hair Accessories
????? Cute pastel goth girls never have boring hairstyles!
Now when we’ve done with a hairstyle – you need a crown.
Avoid randomness of hair accessories. They should always complement the whole look. If you are aiming for mystic vibes then use witchy stuff and don’t do candy clips. Try using spikes with flower adornments.
The main idea here is to twist cute kawaii vibe around the dark goth core.
Try to find a concept that goes with you and experiment with it. Do not cross the cosplay line unintentionally
Braid and Weaves
Interweaving ombre braiding to fulfill your style is an awesome idea. First of all, it may help with adding new colors to your Pastel Goth palette. Secondary, the Braids itself may help you reach the look you are aiming for. But again, there’s a balance between a mermaid and pastel hair huntress. Same as with the colors, be smart and use it in your advance.
