Bold and funky colors have traditionally been reserved for the alternative punk rockers but not anymore. Creative color choices are all the rage. Celebrities like Katy Perry and Vanessa Hudgens and reality stars like Teen Mom 2’s Chelsea Houska have showed us bright colored hair choices are not only unique but also downright gorgeous. From high-intensity pigments to hair chalk, there are many options out there for you. Here are 5 of our favorite hair dye ideas.
Brighter Than Fire Red
Red is vogue. From it’s many shades of deep burgundy to auburn, red has endless possibilities. But if you really want to make a statement, opt for a rich red hue. Although it is high-maintenance, it perfect suits an outgoing personality that naturally commands attention. Depending on your natural hair color, this might take a two-step process but regardless of your natural color, you’ll need frequent touch-ups and haircare products like color-infused conditions and glosses.
Mint Green Machine
Mint has been trendy for just about everything. From dresses to shoes and purses, you can’t go wrong with going mint. If you’re not sure you can commit to mint green all the time you can’t simply add some extensions with the color for an edgy look on a few nights out. Ombre mint is also a great way to ease your way into the look.
Royal Purple Highlights
Purple is a great highlight color, especially for those ladies with naturally (or dyed) dark hair colors. It blends well with the darker colors by giving it a bold look without clashing too much. Whether you opt for a more purple or a more blue hue, you should consider getting extensions for the look. The process of actually getting this color can be tiresome but certainly not impossible if you have your heart set on it.
Multi-Color Hair Chalk Ombre
Hair chalk is a temporary hair color option – lasts about a day or two – that can be the perfect option for getting a creative color for a festival, concert or party but can still be worn to the office on Monday. Rather than using dye you can have a lot of fun with hair chalk. You can opt for ombre, rainbow or one solid color and then wash it out and try something new.
Pale Lavender All Over Color
Think Kelly Osbourne’s pinkish hue hair color. This light pink color almost has subtle gray tones blended throughout the pink to achieve that light lavender. This is a creative hair dye idea that is obviously not natural, yet it doesn’t have that shocking look it can also be known as purple ash blonde. However, if you want it to – simply add a little more lavender to the hair dye and you’ll definitely achieve that stand out look.
