We recommend that you apply Cupcake to pale blonde hair so that it’s fantastic neon tones can shine through! It’s an extremely vivid pink that lasts months on bleached hair. You’ll find this colour looks fluorescent in sunlight and glows a nice bright pink under UV light.


For best results, particularly with lighter shades, apply to hair that has been pre-lightened to pale blond. Apply to freshly washed (not conditioned), dry or damp hair. Apply using latex gloves. We recommend using a tinting brush to ensure even coverage. Work the dye into the hair for a few minutes and leave for at least 15 minutes (you may leave this dye on for longer as long as you cover your hair with plastic wrap or a shower cap to prevent it drying out). Rinse with warm water until the water runs clear.

For longer lasting colour, use a shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair.

  • Precautions

    Although these dyes do not contain the harsh chemicals of other dyes such as ammonia and peroxide, there is still a small chance that they could cause an allergic reaction. For this reason it is imperative that you do a strand and sensitivity test before using them. An ingredients list is available above and can also be found on the product’s packaging (ingredients list can sometimes be found under our sticker). NEVER use any of these products on eyelashes or eyebrows.

    As you would expect from a dye these colours can stain textiles, ceramic, wood and other surfaces as well as temporarily stain skin and nails so be careful to cover surfaces and wear gloves when applying the colour. Once used these products may also rub off your hair and skin and onto clothing and bedding. Although this usually disappears after washing it’s worth bearing this in mind. Staining to bathtubs, basins and showers can easily be cleaned using a bleach based cleaning product.

    Do not mix with peroxide.

    Colours may cause permanent staining to bleached or chemically treated hair. Tip: You can avoid staining on your skin by applying a layer of vaseline anywhere on your skin where dye may come in contact.

Reviews of Special Effects Cupcake Pink

  • I used this on bleached hair it's a nice light pink. Mine didn't come out as bright as the swatch is and was more of a pale pink. The only downside I felt was that it does wash out very quickly because it is such a light color. I did not test it in Black Light so I don't know how the glowing is.
  • I absolutely love this colour, it's a gorgeous light baby pink on hair that has been bleached very pale. One of my favourite's =)
  • I use this dye since about a year now and it's the best hair dye I've ever tried! On freshly bleached hairs, the colour can keep it's virbrant pink colour for 4 to 6 weeks and it stay a pale pastel pink for more than 12 weeks for me.
  • This is the SIXTH pink dye I've tried and so far my favorite by far. I've been seeking the elusive pastel-yet-bright/saturated look and have tried to dilute so many pinks and this one came out closest to what I had in mind. They either diluted too weak/dusty or stayed too dark. I heavily diluted this one in white conditioner on white blonde hair and it's JUST. PERFECT!!
  • Can't wait to have mine hope it works crazy col never took yo my hair it's blonde but still has yellow in it as my hair was so dark before all the bleaching I have toned it but still couldn't get all the yellow out I've pent a fortune so far so I'm praying that this pink actually works!!!!! Got my fingers crossed xxx
  • This time around I had a horrible bluish greenish yellowish base and I put this on undiluted and it came out a lovely iridescent pinky purple! I don't suggest trying that though as I think I got extremely lucky!
  • Lovely peachy pink but do not use on anything but pale to white hair or it will just be patchy orange.
  • Love this particular dye! It makes a beautiful light pink when diluted and I found that it lasts better than other pastel pinks I've made with other dyes :)
  • This is officially my favourite bright pink. Not too cool-toned. Doesn't stain the cuticle. Fades on request. Looks gorgeous. Looks amazing under UV. Just fabulous. Can't wait for stock to come back in so I can order a ton more!
