Not Our Mothers’ Hair Colours

Why not change your hair to the colours of plums, pomegranates or tomatoes or try any other colour of the rainbow? Of course, with blue or purple hair hiding in the crowd is no longer an issue. However, then a hair, which shines and sparkles in bright and brilliant colours is important. We provide you with colouring and styling tips

Trend setters like Katy Perry, Jessie J., and Taylor Momsen have known this all along: Being boring is the kiss of death. Colouring hair purple, green, or blue is certainly a potent antidote against boredom. Of course, tribal habits no longer explain such colour choices. A healthy dose of confidence is therefore of the essence.

Unusual Hair Dyes Are readily Available

Aside from the shades of blonde, brown, and black, the hair colour aisles now also feature bright fashion hair colours. Experimenting with these bright unusual hair colours can be fun and it allows for an entirely new style. Such playful use of colour offers a lot of room for individual expression. Mother Nature did not include such intense hair colours in her palette. Wearing purple, carmine-red or even green hair may therefore turn quite a few heads. Get ready to exercise your independent spirit if your new hair colour choice follows the fashion colour trends. You will be noticed wearing purple or bright orange hair.

Luckily, finding and using these unusual hair colours is easy. We provide a few suggestions, which may help you infuse your hair with fashion colour brilliance.

How to Select Bright Unusual Hair Colours

Changing the colour of your hair is certainly not a problem. Still, it may take you some time to find the bright extravagant colour, which will enhance your style and complexion. As an alternative, you may like to follow the trial and error method of model Bonnie Strange who changes the colour of her hair regularly (see our gallery photo).
A semi-permanent colouring application may be a comfortable solution if you are not quite sure about the colour choice. Using bright hair dyes requires some skill. Permanent colouring applications result in brighter more intense colour results.

Styling Tips for Brightly Coloured Hair

  • Light hair is easier to dye than dark hair. If you want to achieve bright colour effects, medium blonde to dark hair must first be bleached. Otherwise, the colour will be muted or appear only as faint shading. Bleached hair also absorbs more dye

  • After the colour application, rinse your hair until the water runs clear

  • A colour rinse after the colour application seals the dye particles inside the hair. This will keep the colour vibrant for a longer time

  • It is best to use two hair colour packages for long hair (more than shoulder-length hair)

Styling Tips for Brightly Coloured Hair

Unusual hair colours are most impressive in combination with simple hairstyles. The colours unfold their full glamour when the hair is allowed to fall freely without too much styling. Demi Lovato shows this convincingly (see the gallery photo). The casual beach waves emphasise the deep shine of her mahogany-coloured hair. Simple styles and straight hair direct all attention to the glow and glamour of the hair colour. Taylor Momsen combined the effect of her extravagant hair colour with the impact of her striking eye makeup.

We hope the exceptional hair colours of the stars in our photo gallery will get your creative juices flowing.
