Vibrant hair colour ideas to try this year

Looking forward to updating your look this year? You might want to try a bold move and go for a vibrant hair colour. While browns and blonde hair colours are chic and timeless, it wouldn’t hurt to be adventurous once in a while. This year, vibrant shades are trending. Come join the fun! Shake up your ‘do with these vibrant hair colour ideas.


1. Hot pink

Pretty in pink, you say? Go one step further and try hot pink. It’s bolder and brighter, and its warm undertone is suitable for almost anyone, making it one of the best hair colour ideas to try. With this hair colour, you can look edgy with textured blunt haircuts or volumised ‘dos like teased hair or bouffant hairstyles.

2. Green

You may not be a real rock star, but you can be one in the hair department with green hair. If you’re not yet sure if you can fully commit to this colour, you can try it as highlights or dip-dyed hair. Once you’ve grown to love it (which you probably will), feel free to dye your hair entirely. Just take extra care of your hair to combat the damage caused by bleaching.


3. Bright red

Sure, some have naturally red hair, but we’re not talking about that. We’re talking about fiery red hair, the kind that makes you look like a beautiful mermaid – this is definitely a show-stopper when it comes to hair colour ideas to try. You can wear red on long or short hair, and with an energetic colour like this, you’ll be smiling every time you look at the mirror.

Use conditioner for dyed hair like Dove Nutritive Solutions Colour Care Conditioner. This product helps prevent dryness, a common concern with dyed hair, while helping maintain the vibrancy of your hair colour.


4. Lilac

Wanna show your artsy self through your hair? Try a lilac hair colour. Just like pink, this colour can help exude a positive vibe, which is a perfect way to start the year. Lilac usually suits fair to medium skin tones. Add dimension to this colour by going for layered haircuts or bangs.


5. Orange ombre

Look edgy and avant-garde with this orange ombre as one of your hair colour ideas to try. You can dye your roots with bright orange, then slowly transition to blonde as you go down to the tips. The result is a beautiful, sunset-like hair colour that can perk up even the gloomiest of days. Match this colour with a straightforward, blunt haircut; too many layers can distract from the already gorgeous colour combination.


6. Two-toned hair

Combine two vibrant colours with two-toned hair. You can dye the upper half of your hair with one colour, and the lower half with a different one. You can also make one your main hair colour, and the second one as highlights. Feeling more adventurous? Try rainbow hair. When you have colourful tresses, keep your makeup minimal so you won’t look overdone.
