Trend Alert: Bright Colored Hair

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Coloring your hair is all the rage now. Bright colored hair is not just for punk rockers or circus clowns; instead women of all ages are experimenting with new color dyes for their hair. The bright colored hair trend is especially popular among celebrities, like Kylie Jenner, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Nicole Richie. Celebs are embracing beautiful shades of pink, blue, and purple. These beautiful hues are soft and fun and can make anyone look like a mythical unicorn or a mermaid. Who wouldn’t want to look like a mermaid, especially for the summer months?

Color looks great with every skin tone and hair type. Anyone can pull off bright colored hair. The trend is all about being confident and not afraid to flaunt some color.

After reading more about this trend, I noticed that blondes tend to rock more pink and lilac shades, where as brunettes favor blue and turquoise. If you’re ready to say yes to color, I recommend starting off modestly and dying a few strands of hair. The peekaboo streak of color is perfect for those who want to be trendy but have the option to hide the color for those days you aren’t feeling so colorful. A hair dresser can dye a piece of your hair that is easy to style or hide. Dip dyes are also super popular and involve dying the tips of your hair. The best part about dip dyes is that they can be easily removed with a simple trim. Finally, for those who don’t want to risk the health and beauty of their natural hair, try extensions. Extensions are the perfect way to test out color and achieve that mythic look. Don’t forget, to preserve your color by using a color-friendly shampoo that is sulfate free. This will prevent fading and longer lasting vibrant colors.

The real question is how do I feel about this trend? Am I ready to embrace a full head of color? To be honest I don’t think I’m up to sporting the full head of color look anytime soon, but I am open to dying a few strands to sample the look. Although I have only seen this trend on longer hairstyles, I’m tempted to give it a try with my pixie cut.

If I do throw care to the wind, I’ll probably go with a few strands of blue or turquoise. My biggest concern with this look would be how to coordinate this with outfits and accessories, not to mention worrying about how others feel about the look. But, then again with all the celebs embracing the trend maybe there’s a little room for adventure. It’s important to remember that fashion and beauty, whether it’s your clothes, makeup, or hair, is all about expressing yourself and taking risks

I may not be ready to take the step yet, but after writing this post and seeing so many interesting photos, I’m feeling pretty inspired. Who knows but maybe in my next post I’ll be sporting a few colorful streaks in my pixie cut.

How do you feel about this trend? Will you hop on the bandwagon or are you worried what other people might think? Join the discussion below and send me your comments. I’d love to know what you think!

    This is definitely one of my favorite trends at the moment, but I’m too scared to try it, because of how damaged my hair will get afterwards and I’m just thinking if it’s worth it.

    I recently did a pastel ombre in my hair and I am still waiting for it to wash out! It has gone from purple to blue to aqua.

    I think Kylie and Katy pull it off the best

    I LOVE the trend! I’m currently an ombre blond from black, but I’m thinking of dyeing my whole head pink in the near future!

    I love the bright hair trend look! I think it’s so fun and creative and it allows people to show their sense of style in such an interesting way. Strangely enough I’m looking to dye my hair blue. I know that if your not too committed to dyeing your hair, hair chalk is one way to test out a color before you full out commit!

    I have been seeing tons of lilac hair around my city. Not sure it’s for me, but it’s interesting

    If I were younger I would totally do pink 🙂

    This is such a fun trend! I have never colored my hair ever (I have virgin hair) so I don’t think I’d be brave enough to do a bright color. Haha! But I love it on other people!

    I would love to dye my hair blue/green but I’m too much of a chicken! I think because my hair is so long it’s scary to do anything to crazy to it. Maybe one day, though! Love these inspiration pics!
