Pink hair, because you do care!

That’s the motto this month at Ted Gibson Salons, where Gibson, hairstylist to the stars, is leading the charge to chalk his clients’ hair pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“I think all of us have been affected by breast cancer in some way or another,” Gibson told Us Weekly. “My sister died from breast cancer, and my father died from lung cancer. I want to do whatever I can to help stop this disease.”

So where do you start? By walking into one of Gibson’s two salons, located in New York City and Fort Lauderdale, Fl. The hairstylist, who works with Ashley Greene, Lupita Nyong’o, and Kendall Jenner, to name a few, or one of his pros will paint the bubblegum pink chalk on with a sponge applicator section by section, similar to the highlighting process.

Though Gibson says you can certainly chalk at home, he did add, “I would leave it to the experts for the best results!” Applied properly, the chalk can last for up to 10 shampoos, just make sure you don’t suds up every day. “You should never wash your hair every day anyway, whether you have hair chalk or not,” Gibson noted.

The pro added that unlike other hair colors, he believes rose highlights work with any skin tone or hair shade. Rocking the rosy trend, like Diane Kruger did at the punk-themed 2013 Met Ball, is also a good way to test out if you’re ready to go rainbow, the latest celebrity hair trend. “Bold colors are becoming more of the norm,” Gibson said to Us. “My last couple of photo shoots have showcased rainbow colors. I love them and hope they are here to stay!”

Ted Gibson’s salons will accept a $25 donation for pink chalk highlights, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen organization.
