Because you're anything but basic.

If you’re like us and love staying up-to-date with all the latest trends, you know that TikTok is the place to look. And we have to thank the video social for the latest 2023 hair trend: Gemini hair, inspired by the zodiac sign and its quirky personality. But what is Gemini hair? This hairstyle combines your natural hair color with a contrasting layer that can be darker, lighter, pastel, or whatever shade you prefer. There were a bunch of influencers and celebrities rocking this style this past two music weekends at the valley. Are you ready to update your style?

6 Trending Ways To Style Gemini Hair

This look is a commitment, so you must know exactly what you want when visiting the salon. If you haven’t dyed your hair before, start with something more on the natural side that looks more like an ombre. If you’re a seasoned colored-hair girl, then you can really go crazy and choose bold combinations. Take care of your hair and prevent it from being damaged by using serums and appropriate shampoos like Suave Vivid Color Shampoo, and Suave Vivid Color Conditioner, which uses Amino Acid Complex to strengthen your hair from the inside.

If you are ready to make your hair pop, read below to find the best ways to rock the Gemini hairstyle.

1. Blonde and Brunette

Blonde and brunette are the classic combo to rock Gemini hair.

This is a classy combination to try with Gemini hair. If you’re a newbie to dying your hair, natural brunette, and bright blonde will keep it bright but not too bright. It’s also reminiscent of the calico hair trend from the early 2010s.

2. Two Shades of Pink

We love the pastel hair combo.

Embrace the softcore aesthetic with a lavender and pink combo. These two pastel colors go amazingly together and complement each other. They look even better if you have a dark root.  

3. Bold Colors with Light Underlights

The Gemini hair trend from front to back looks cool, or even cooler!

Gemini hair doesn’t have to be left vs. right. It can also be front vs back. You can choose to dye the front strands contour in your face and go for a darker or lighter color in the back. This is a unique and stylish way to style Gemini hair.

4. Pop of Color Gemini Hair

Similar shades are a great way to spice up your natural color.

Gemini hair doesn’t necessarily have to be contrasting. You can actually use it as a way to play with your natural color and enhance it. For example, as she is blonde on one side and golden on the other will grow out and feed beautifully.

5. Dark to Bright Spectrum

Try green and black Gemini hair to resemble the Ocean Eyes pop star.

Get inspired by pop stars and try Gemini hair with black combined with a hot color like green or pink instead of color in your roots; you can color one side or your fringe. Wow, factor guaranteed.

6. Yin and Yang Braids

Two tones hairstyles look amazing on braids and protective hairstyles. Whether it’s your natural hair or you’re using extensions, you can really go crazy with the colors that mix and match.

How To Care For Gemini Hair

To keep your Gemini hair bright and colorful, wash it with cold water, as hot water will most likely make the dye fade quicker. Also, you’ll have to bleach your hair quite hard to achieve some of the trendiest hues. Make sure you love your strands with strengthening and moisturizing treatments like SheaMoisture Purple Rice Water Strength & Color Care Shampoo, and SheaMoisture Purple Rice Water Strength & Color Care Conditioner, which cleanses while restoring strength and shine.


Beware Of The Fade

Vivid colors tend to fade quickly, so on top of washing with cold water, limit how many times you wash it in a week. Help the color remain bold and bright by using masks and conditioners.

Try Temporary Colors

If you want to try this trend but know you don’t want to commit, you can also try temporary colors that are basically makeup for your hair. This is also a great way to experiment and decide what colors to choose. They usually last for 2 to 6 washes and can give you a taste of what having a Gemini hairstyle feels like.
