Want to show of your wild side, but want to hide it away from time to time? Then reveal your new hair design with a subtle undercut hairstyle. And, if you need your leopard print design to be discreet, it’s a good idea to choose a colour close to your natural tresses!

This style offers you the opportunity to conceal your leopard spots, simply by sweeping your mane over to the opposite side. Then when the mood strikes you, switch things back and let your inner animal come to life!  Credit: @amandacaskie

Prefer to work your undercut at the back, instead of to the side? Then get a buzzcut from the nape of your neck upwards, add in your chosen leopard print design and rock the rest of your hair in an on-trend messy bun!

Need to conceal your edgy ‘do while at school or in the office? No problem, just let your hair down during the daytime, then when you’re out and about, tie your tresses up and reveal your wild design. Credit: @charlottepeacock

Love dramatic hairstyles but want to keep your long mane? Then take inspiration from this colourful ‘do. Both pastel and mermaid hair have been colour crazes lately, so when we saw this ‘do with a leopard print design, we just had to stop and stare! Credit: @fscharliesalon

Editor’s tip: Leopard print hair is not one to try at home, so seek a professional to try any of these looks. Then once you have your desired leopard look, don’t forget to invest in a shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair, like the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Colour Vibrance Protection Shampoo and Conditioner.
