Just because you have short hair doesn’t mean you can’t show off fun colors too. A unique style like this stacked bob can make your vibrant colors stand out even more.

Cascading waves give you a lot of lengths to try out a full sunset hair color ombré look.

If you’re wanting to try vibrant hair colors, but don’t want anything that’s extremely bright, go for a pastel variation of the sunset hair color. This allows you to try out a more muted version of the style.

7. Sunset Peek-a-Boo Colors

Not fully ready to ditch your natural hair color yet? Leave the top layer your natural shade and dye the underlayers a sunset ombré shade. This peek-a-boo effect creates a unique look when worn up or down.

8. Pink Sunset

We love how beautifully these purple and pink shades blend together. Not every sunset hair color look needs to incorporate reds, oranges, and yellows.

9. Firey Colors

What better colors to go with an edgy haircut than firey sunset hues? We love how the ombré colors seamlessly blend into the longer side of the haircut.

Focus on more of the reds and purples in the sunset by choosing a look that weaves various shades of these two colors together.

How to Care for Sunset Colored Hair

Caring for your brightly colored hair is so important. Using the right products will help you keep your strands vibrant for as long as possible, which is definitely something you’ll want to do with this look.

Shampoo and Conditioner

When it comes to washing and conditioning your hair, you’ll want to make sure to use a formulation for color-treated hair. One of our favorite sets is Nexxus Color Assure Shampoo and Conditioner. We love this specific a lot because it helps keep your strands vibrant for up to 40 washes.

Moisturize with a Mask

When dyeing your hair, especially if you’re bleaching it, your strands can become extra dry and brittle. It’s so important to use a hair mask aimed at deeply moisturizing your strands. Depending on how dry your hair feels, it’s best to use a mask one to two times per week. We love Suave Hydrating Coconut Conditioning Mask.
