Hazel Hair Color Is Your Semi-Permanent Hair Color Solution

Change your look temporarily.

Hazel hair color is a semi-permanent dye that adds warm darkness to your hair. This hair color won’t be the same for everyone. Depending on what hair color you start with, your hazel hair color will darken your strands, leaving you with the end result anywhere between a light blonde auburn hue to a dark chocolate shade. It’s also important to note that this hair dye is semi-permanent, so if you’re not in love with the shade after, it’s not the end of the world.

Keep scrolling to check out the variety of shades you can achieve within a hazel hair color. Hey, hazel eye colors are made up of a combination of hues, so why wouldn’t the hair color variation be the same?

Starting with strands anywhere from bleached blonde to a medium shade blonde will leave you with a dark hazelnut blonde color to light brown shade.
