Black hair tends to reflect light. To get the most of this hair color when it comes to styling, try out a sleek hairstyle. Smooth bun updos and ponytails are simple styles to start with. If you want to pile on some added shine before styling, spray Nexxus New York Salon Care Color Assure Glossing Tonic to bring out your hair color’s luminosity and shine.

Style to Try: Braids

One of the coolest and on-trend hairstyles to try on blonde hair is braids. When styled on light hair, braids tend to have an edgy appeal. The next time your roots are exposed, don’t panic! Simply try out a new braided hairstyle, you’ll be amazed by the possibilities!

Style to Try: Layered Hairstyles

Pair brown hair with a simple and sophisticated style, especially if you made a drastic change like going from light to dark. Keeping it simple is an easy way to ease your way into your new look. Opt for a side or middle part, and add in some subtle layers for movement, which can also help frame your face. Complete the look by using some serum like the Suave Biotin Infusion Anti-Breakage Serum to help keep your hair smooth and frizz-free.

Hair Dye Color: Rainbow Hair

Style to Try: Blunt haircut

So you went for a combination of hair dye colors! Go you! On rainbow-colored hair, it’s all about working with the mix. Opt for hairstyles that highlight each hue within your hair. Short bob haircuts with a graduated cut towards the back not only adds height and volume but it also puts your mixture of hair colors on full display. If you have long hair, styling your hair into a donut bun is a fun way to put the color gradient of your hair on full display.

Style to Try: Romantic waves

These days amongst the celebrity set, red hair is making a major comeback. If you already have, or looking to try red hair dye colors on your hair, opt for a sexy hairstyle. When paired with thick waves, red hair gives off a vintage retro vibe that also has a sultry appeal. Wear it down and or gather it up, leaving a side-parted finger wave fringe out for some added drama. Keep your waves in place with some hairspray, like the TRESemmé TRES Spray Super Hold Hairspray to keep your look in place all day long. This hairspray features a humidity-resistant formula, so you’ll also keep frizz at bay.
