What is "Wear It Pink Day"?

Taking place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, thousands of amazing people wear it pink in their communities, schools or work places for the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now.

Why Do We Use The Colour Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness?

The colour pink is usually associated with femininity and breast cancer is predominantly seen as a female disease, although hundreds of men are diagnosed each year with breast cancer. 

Estee Lauder first used the pink ribbon during a Breast Cancer Awareness campaign and it has become the widely accepted symbol for supporting the cause. 

Pink Hair Colours

"Be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons" - We love this motto and so do our clients who have visited for hot pink hair colours! Stand out from the crowd and show your support with a vibrant new pink hair colour at Stephen Young Salon in West Wimbledon. 

If you're looking to add pink hair colour to your locks in a subtle way, balayage highlights are a great option. We can add as many highlights with colours ranging from pastel pink to hot pin hair colours.
