D'Amelio knows the influence she has over her followers (31.8 million on Instagram, 4.5 million on Twitter and 95.4 million on TikTok), so we can expect to see way more pink hair highlights around social media following the big reveal of her adorable new style. D'Amelio paid tribute to Lavagirl, from The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, as many fans pointed out with the girly pastel hue, which highlights the top of her hair, underneath, and the front, face-hugging pieces.

The TikTok breakout is following in the footsteps of Madonna, Dua Lipa, and Maddie Ziegler who, like D'Amelio, who have all gone pink recently. She tagged fellow TikTok star, and in-demand hairstylist, Brad Mondo in her Instagram post showing off the new look, thanking him for his help achieving it (Mondo typically shares reaction videos of himself duetting with people usually doing something fun and funky with their tresses). The move comes after D'Amelio cut her hair into a stylish lob and dyed it blue over the summer, with similar 50/50 highlights.
