Precious Jewel Toned Hair Colors to Swoon Over

1. Saphire Blue Hair

Blue hair has been trending since the end of 2016. But, as trends go, they evolve and the lighter aqua shades of last year have turned into deeper sapphire shades. We love this deep and vibrant shade, which is pretty much what jewel toned hair colors are all about!

2. Ruby Red Hair

This ruby red hair is giving us all the mermaid princess vibes. The slightly darker shade of red conveys that deep rich tone of real rubies! If you’re going to dye your hair red, you’ll soon learn that it takes some upkeep. We recommend using the Suave Professionals Moisture Mask with Almond & Shea Butter around once a week to keep your dyed hair nice and soft.

3. Emerald Green Hair

Another deep shade we love is emerald green. This sharp shade is surprisingly flattering! We love that you can warm it up with yellow undertones or cool it off with a hint of blue. You could take this gem-toned hair even darker by going for a green-black look. Very villainous!

4. Amethyst Purple Hair

If you want pretty easter egg hair, look no further than this gorgeous amethyst shade. This color is so dimensional, you can see flecks of pink and silver mixed with the lilac. To keep a purple hue like this on point, make sure you use a purple mask. Using the Catwalk by TIGI Fashionista Violet Mask once a week will keep your purple up to date and your hair supremely soft.

5. Diamond White Hair

The silver hair trend is so 2016. In 2017 we’re loving the even brighter even lighter diamond white hair. This hair is best executed in a totally neutral tone, any warmth can read as yellow, any coolness can read as silver! We don’t want that, now do we?

6. Opal Pink Hair

How totally perfect is this opal hair? We’re obsessed with the mix of pale pinks and blues. All wrapped up together the give the impression of the beautiful opal. When you’re adding different tones like this, it’s critical to use a color safe shampoo. We love the Dove Nutritive Solutions Color Care Shampoo and Dove Nutritive Solutions Color Care Conditioner. This dup works to keep your color intact as it nourishes from within.

7. Orange/Red Hair

And the award for the best of both worlds hair colors goes to this orange/red jewel toned hair color. We are digging this deeper shade that would be an awesome transitional shade for a brunette to try out.

8. Piecey Highlights

Want the jewel toned look without the full commitment? We feel you and thankfully there are tons of other ways to rock this look like in the case of these piecey and underneath highlights. We just love how this bold orange contrasts with the model’s dirty blonde hair that really makes her long hair ‘pop.’
