Creative Hair Coloring Ideas for Women Living on The Edge
If you’ve ever wanted to make a drastic – possibly insane – alteration to your locks, now is the time to do it. Crazy hair coloring is all the rage this year, and unlike the days of old, many people (and even some businesses) are readily accepting diversification of looks in the workplace.
If you’re ready to make a substantial change to your hair color, but aren’t sure where to start, the following ideas should get those creative juices flowing. Remember that the only limitations to what you can create with your hair is your imagination.
1: Rainbow Hair
We’ll start this list off with a bang, featuring the internet-famous rainbow hair. With so many variations in the colors, as well as how much of your hair has them, this is a trend which looks to be staying trendy this season. Do the underneath of your hair, your whole head, or simply featuring streaks of varying colors. For the best results, you want to choose a minimum of four colors to effectively create rainbow hair. While primary colors work best, any of your favorite color schemes will work so long as it does not predominately feature any excessively dark colors.
2: Dark on Bright
The dark on bright coloring scheme features deep brown or black hair as the primary color, with streaks of a bright, bold color interspersed throughout. This throwback to your Myspace days has returned with a vengeance and has been elegantly tweaked to suit the adult audience. Dark on bright will make you feel bold, youthful, and showcase every person’s unique personality.
3: Pretty Pastels
Pastels came into the spotlight a few years ago, and they are still a very trendy yet unique idea for women looking to spice up their look. A word of caution: do NOT use boxed pastel colors even if you have done your own hair a hundred times. Pastels do not come out well at home, and are very difficult to manage accurately, so if you choose pastels you MUST get them done by a trained professional.
4: Peek-A-Boo Crazy Colors
Peek-a-boo crazy colors refers to a trend where most of the hair is a natural color. Most often, the natural coloring ranges from a pale blonde to black, and this trend is not often seen in reds – although that doesn’t mean it can’t be pulled off. The crazy color of choice is hidden in the underneath of your hair, or a single streak is colored which can be tucked away behind the ear. This choice is great for business professionals who would love to have a “crazy” color in their hair but need to maintain a professional appearance.
Duality is when each half of your hair is colored a different color. Those who started this trend took it after the infamous Cruella De’Ville, but trust us, it looks much better on a real person with already fabulous locks versus stringy cartoon hair. The most popular color schemes include black/white, red/black, and blue/pink.
