Hair Colors for Men to Inspire Your Next Look
1. Almost Black
If you’re looking to make a big statement with your hair color but aren’t quite ready to dive into inky black territory, then this almost-black dark shade of brown is a great option.
A fade and a bleached-all-over hue? Sign us up. Rock two trends in one and pair this cut with a classic tamed hipster beard for even more trend points. Keep your style in place with AXE Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade.
3. The 2000s are Back
Head to a pro to create this perfect balance of light brown and creamy blonde.
5. Something Natural
Opt for highlights that hit your strands right where the sun does for an ultra-natural look.
6. Inky Black
Black is a classic for a reason. Opt for something bold and classic by rocking an inky black hue.
7. So Subtle
This look is so subtle that you might miss it if you’re not looking close enough. A super subtle balayage look adds some color without making too big of a statement.
8. Golden Blonde
Lighten up on top with golden blonde waves and style your combover like above.
9. Choppy Blonde
Pair bleach blonde strands with a choppy layered haircut for a super edgy style.
10. Blue is Best
This icy blue hue is the perfect way to rock a beach-friendly summery vibe, and will also look incredible this winter paired with soft knit sweaters.
11. Let it Grow
Letting your hair grow can sometimes be the best move as far as mens hair color ideas go. Age gracefully by going gray at the temples and letting your beard reflect that silver-foxy vibe too.
12. Rooty Blonde
Rooted blonde hair is a great way to add some dimension to your strands, especially when you let your hair grow a little longer. This color looks great when worn down or when you show it off it a man bun.
13. Salt and Pepper
There’s nothing like a little salt and pepper combo when it comes to hair color. Everyone goes gray at different stages and we believe there’s a strong argument to be made for just letting it grow.
14. Sandy Blonde
This is potentially the most versatile blonde hair color out there. Pair it with a bowl cut for an even sweeter vibe.
15. Just the Top Now
Lighten up just the top layer of your hair and slick it back with a dime-size amount of AXE Spiked-Up Look: Extreme Hold Gel.
16. Select Strands
Inflict minimal damage on your hair while still rocking a color trend. A few lighter, scattered highlights will show off your natural texture while adding a little bit of dimension.
17. Beach Vibes
Sun-kissed highlights let you rock a beachy look all year round.
18. Brassy Blonde
Minimal upkeep is always a great thing in our book. You can let this brassy blonde color do its thing after just one treatment for a grungy feel.
As we’ve seen from the silver hair trend, this color works for men of all ages.
20. Baby Pink Hair
There’s something so soft and gentle about baby pink. If you are into colors that don’t give off a loud effect, go for this hue. How to style it? Go with a buzz, of course!
21. Bleach Blonde
Achieving the perfect blonde hair color isn’t an easy task, but we can assure that once you get the hue you’re after, it’s worth it. Slick your blonde strands back and use a styling pomade, like Bed Head for Men by TIGI Slick Trick, to lock it in place.
22. Cool Blue Hair Color
Try cool tones like this denim blue on your hair. You can simply put a temporary rinse over blonde or white hair to achieve the look. If you want a permanent look, go for blue men’s hair dye.
Not into extravagant hair colors? Stick to classic colors like brown and create a classic style, too. How about a combover?
24. Gray Hair
You don’t have to wait until your hair begins to age to go gray. Do it now. If you don’t like the ashy finish, style hair with a pomade like AXE Smooth Look: Shine Pomade.
25. Hot Pink
In the mood for a striking hot hue? What about a neon pink? This is a way to get heads turning and it looks great against curly hair. To style, use a diffuser after washing to dry your hair and minimize frizz.
26. Rainbow Cut
Remember those chocolate rainbow cakes many of use at as children (and probably even as adults)? We’d like to think that this men’s hair color idea was inspired by that sweet treat. Give your look a unique spin by pairing it up with a fun braid.
27. Red Curly Hair
If you’re a natural redhead and want to update your look with a new style, try this voluminous curly look. Wash hair with Dove Men+Care Oxygen Fortifying Shampoo to cleanse and thicken your strands before styling. Not a redhead? Try using a men’s hair dye to get the look.
28. Ice White Hair
In for a chill? Go for an icy white-blue hue. Not up for compromising your natural hair color? Use a hair chalk or spray for a temporary look.
29. Yellow Blonde
The yellow blonde hue may not look great against everyone but you have to try it out to see if it works for you. We love how this color is styled on curly afro hair. Use a gel, like Dove Men+ Care Control Gel, to help define your curls.
