31 Colorful Hair Looks to Inspire Your Next Dye Job

11. Jewel Tone Teal Hair

This jewel tone here is stunning, don’t you think? It looks a little bit like peacock hair but instead of a bright purple, a beautiful deep and rich blue instead.

So cleverly intertwined that you can’t tell where one color begins and the other ends, we’re obsessed with this colorful hair look.

12. Galaxy Hair

We called it galaxy hair because it really is out of this world… There are simply not enough words to express the love we have for this crazy, colorful and absolutely beautiful look.

Mixing bright and vivid purples with bright pink, turquoise, silvery-blue and paler and pastel lilacs, we’d be rocking intricate braids ourselves every day if we had the chance to show these colors off.

13. Colorful Split

I want it kinda blue and green. No wait, purples and pinks with peach too. Wait, in actual fact, just do half and half. Why not?

We can’t think of a good reason NOT to get this hair to be honest. It’s so crazy and out-there, it just works. Plus with Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad rocking half-and-half hair (blue and pink pigtails), we reckon it’ll be a trend soon anyway.

14. Teal Blue Hair with Colorful Tips

Kept a simple and stunning blue-green at the roots, this pretty lady has opted for different colors on the tips, something we probably wouldn’t have chosen ourselves but actually works out pretty well.

Heading from the deep and dark blue green to apple green, yellows, baby pinks, peaches, bright purples and even some electric green for good measure, this is a look that’ll get people talking that’s for sure.

15. Colorful Pastel Hair

This is how you do lots of colors subtly – pastel shades all blended together, created an almost opal/mother of pearl hair look that we would love to rock ourselves.

Such an intricate blend, it all starts with that beautiful silvery-gray base. Add those pastel and beautiful shades over the top and you have yourself a wonderful and colorful hair look every girl will be envious of.

16. Purple to Lime Green Ombre

One thing you’ll definitely need to bear in mind with colorful hair looks like these is the amount of pre-lightening treatments and work that you’ll need to put your hair through before you can even start the coloring process.

Sadly, colorful hair looks as beautiful as these aren’t a simple case of walking into the salon and walking out looking like your favorite My Little Pony character. A lot of dedication is required for a look this fabulous; dedication and the knowledge that color this bright and bold is very high-maintenance.

17. Fire Orange Tips

If you’ve had red hair and you’re thinking of getting rid of it for a different color, or maybe even head back to your original shade, why not do it this way – the fire orange tips way?

Fading the red to orange and adding darker roots with lighter and brighter ends is a great way of gradually fading out the red whilst at the same time experimenting with a different shade. Orange hair is very difficult to wear (we’ve found) and this look provides a much simpler solution.

18. Dancing Rainbow Hair

If you’ve never heard of a hair painting technique known as “fluid hair painting”, there’s a good chance you’ve never had hair this beautiful.

One of the best ways to achieve this multi-dimensional look is to lay the hair flat, spread it out and let your paintbrush do the work. Your hands will place the hair dye where it needs to be and the colors will blend as they should. That’s the aim of the game anyway, clearly not something you’ll get away doing at home by yourself. In fact, saying that, most of the looks you’ll see here are just much too complicated to attempt alone unless you’re working with hair extensions.

19. Blue Ombre Hair

Ombre hair like this is easily achieved with one very simple trick – adding conditioner to your bright color to make it more powdery and a pastel effect the further down you go. Start with the roots and keep things dark and the more you work down your hair length, the more conditioner you add until you get to the ends and you’re left with a beautiful light and icy shade.

It’s sounds easy and it really is once you’ve given it a shot a couple of times.

20. Purple Lob

This looks like one color but it’s not. It’s different shades of light and dark purple subtly blended to give you a multi-dimensional look which also work with the curls and slight layers to add more volume and depth to your look too.

Purple hair is actually one of the best colors to go for if this is your first time with bright and bold colors. When it fades, it’ll fade to a pretty lilac and pastel purple from the brighter start, giving you an easier way to grow it out and let it fade before deciding on your next masterpiece.
