Feel a need for change? There’s no better way to give your beauty look a revamp than with a new hair color. And while you can’t go wrong with a classic hue like chocolate brown or honey blonde, why not use your mane makeover as an excuse to step out of your comfort zone with an edgy hair color? If you want locks with attitude, look no future than the ten edgy hair colors we think you should try.
The first color that comes to mind when you think edgy? We’d guess red. There’s just something about a bright, bold red hue that demands to be seen. Color your hair a ruby red hue and you'll be able to plunge head-first into the edgy hair color trend.

Food-inspired hair colors? We’re sure you’re familiar, but they aren't all sweet, dessert-inspired shades. Eggplant hair happens to be one of the latest hair trends that falls into the edgy hair color category. Taking inspiration from its namesake, eggplant hair is a deep purple hue. The color can be achieved with an all-over wash of eggplant or via the balayage highlighting technique.

Speaking of edgy hair colors that happen to be on-trend, consider trying the hue of 2019: silver hair! The year’s most coveted color, silver hair will certainly have all eyes on you when you enter the room.

Eggplant isn’t the only purple hue that’s edgy. Blackberry hair, one of the latest hair color trends, will give you some serious rocker chick vibes. The color consists of dark, black roots that transition into purple balayage highlights.
Get the look: L’Oréal Paris Féria in Midnight Violet, L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Purple, L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Purple, or L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Purple or Indigo
We’d consider platinum blonde hair the OG of edgy hair colors. This icy hue brings about an icy aura that seems to never go out of style. Just be wary of the fact that this color requires quite a bit of upkeep and bleach, so if you naturally have really dark hair, you may be better off trying out another edgy hue.
Get the look: L’Oréal Paris Féria Absolute Platinum Extreme Platinum, L’Oréal Paris Féria Ultra Cool Blonde, L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Extra Light Ash Blonde, or L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème in Extra Light Natural Blonde
Who said edgy hair colors had to be bold and bright? Soft, pastel hues offer a totally different take on edgy—which is why vanilla lilac hair is a must for our list. Featuring a dark root, blonde base, and gradual fade to lilac ends, the muted color is anything but subtle.
Get the look: L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Lavender or L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Lilac
A metal-inspired hair color? It doesn’t get much edgier than that. Copper hair takes auburn to a whole new level with a bold, bright twist. This is a great idea for those who want to dabble in the realm of edgy hair colors without veering too far out of their comfort zone.
Get the look: L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Copper, L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Intense Red Copper, or L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme in Medium Reddish Blonde
Pretty in pink? We prefer edgy in pink! While you may consider pink to be a girly color, pink ombré hair is totally fierce. Imagine it now: your natural base color, fading into a hot pink hue (you can also opt for a soft or pastel pink). You’ll be walking as if you run the town in no time!
Get the look: L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Hot Pink, L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Hot Pink, or L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Raspberry
Another red hue that’s totally edgy? Black cherry hair! This color involves a deep burgundy base with a pop of red throughout to brighten your mane. Give the soda-inspired color a try if you prefer a dark, edgy mane.
Get the look: L’Oréal Paris Féria in Deep Burgundy or L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Burgundy
While this hair color may sound like a yummy treat, we promise it’ll give you a look that’s more edgy than sweet. Peanut butter and jelly hair will ensure all eyes are on you, as the color features a grape or raspberry jelly base with golden highlights throughout. It’s totally bold and most definitely qualifies as edgy—even if it evokes thoughts of your favorite childhood lunch.
