Natural redheads aren’t the only ones who get to rock ginger hair. You can make your red hair dreams come true with a box of hair dye or a trip to the salon—you just need to pick the right shade. There are quite a few stunning variations of ginger hair, which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to share 35 ginger hair colors that are sure to earn plenty of fire emojis on your next selfie. Shall we?
If dark hair is your comfort zone, you’ll be happy to know that dark ginger hair is high on our list of worthy ginger mane transformations. The color, as you can probably guess, is deep in tone and maintains a perfect balance between brown and red. Even better, you can achieve the look at home with the help of a dark ginger hair dye like the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Dark Auburn.
For those who want to add some lightness and dimension to their strands, look no further than blonde ginger balayage. This shade involves your colorist painting blonde highlights throughout a ginger base for a subtle, sun-kissed touch.
Think blondes have more fun but still want to get in on the ginger hair trend? We have a solution: ginger blonde hair! This reddish blonde hair color is just that—a blonde color with a red tint, creating a gorgeous fusion between the two shades. You can DIY the color at home with the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Light Reddish Blonde.
One way to get a hair color full of movement is to add dimension to your ginger hair with chocolate lowlights. This is a great option for those who prefer to go darker with their hair while still staying true to the ginger trend.
Speaking of chocolate lowlights, ginger brown hair is another way to combine both ginger and brunette tones—but instead of individual strands of brown, this shade is a perfect mix between the two hair colors. As you can probably imagine, ginger brown hair is a brown hair color with rich, red undertones.
Love the idea of ginger brown hair but want something a little more unique? That’s where bronze ginger hair comes in. Similar in tone to ginger brown hair, bronze ginger hair has one key difference that sets it apart: a gorgeous metallic shimmer.
As far as faking a naturally red mane goes, it doesn’t get much closer than a true ginger hair color. The shade mimics what natural red hair colors look like, so even your BFF will be questioning if you’ve been hiding your red roots all along.
When committing to an all-over ginger hair color seems scary, add a pop of ginger to your mane with a ginger money piece instead. This involves your colorist using a ginger hair dye on your fringe and face-framing strands for a high contrast look that puts your touch of ginger front and center.
This hue, which is a take on the sombré trend, transitions from a dark ginger color at your roots to a medium ginger color at your ends. The subtle change between colors will add just the right amount of movement to your hair.
If you loved the concept of sporting a money piece but would prefer to have a ginger base, you can create a similar high-contrast look by asking your colorist for ginger hair with a face-framing honey highlight. This warm blonde shade will instantly bring new life to your ginger strands.
All that glitters is not gold—sometimes it’s metallic ginger hair! If you want a mane that shimmers in the sunlight, allow us to point you in the direction of metallic ginger hair.
If you’re the trendsetter of your friend group, you likely have your eyes on a bold, statement-making hair color. That’s exactly what fire ginger ombré hair is. This hair color features a bright, vibrant red shade at the roots and transitions to a gorgeous ginger shade at the ends. Be prepared to have all eyes on you!
Speaking of red and ginger hair, if you love this color combo but want an option that garners a little less attention, consider adding red lowlights to your ginger mane. We’re fans of deep red lowlights, which will emphasize the red tones in your ginger hair dye.
Copper highlights are another option for bringing the red tones of your ginger base to the forefront. This option is ideal for those who want to go lighter and brighter with their ginger mane while adding depth and movement.
Don’t want to deal with consistent upkeep? That’s where rooted ginger hair comes in. For this shade, your colorist will create a shadow root that will allow your natural hair color to blend in seamlessly as your color starts to grow out. This way, you can put more time between touch-ups without dealing with a harsh line of demarcation.
Bring out your camera, because this ginger hair color is something straight out of your Pinterest feed. The bold, neon ginger hair color incorporates vibrant tones of red and orange for a mane that demands to be seen.
If you want to play up the red tones in your hair but still go a bit lighter with your strands, ask your colorist to add strawberry blonde highlights throughout your mane. This is a subtle way to also add a bit of blonde to your hair.
On the other hand, if you want a high-contrast look, you’ll find that platinum balayage on ginger hair fits the bill. This near-white shade will add an edgy touch to your otherwise natural-looking hair color.
Rose gold highlights on ginger hair are a great way to add shimmering movement throughout your hair. Even better, you can test the waters with the help of a temporary hair color, like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Rosegold, which washes out in just one shampoo.
To add a ginger twist to your brunette strands, consider giving brown ginger balayage a try. This is great for those who want a low-maintenance ginger hair color, as the hand-painted ginger balayage highlights won’t send you rushing to the salon as your roots start to grow out. Instead, you’ll have the perfect dose of sun-kissed, ginger dimension.
Ginger hair is warm in tone by nature, but if you’re partial to cool hair colors, you don’t have to sit this trend out. Instead, ask your colorist for an ashy ginger hair color. If you prefer to color your hair at home, try using the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Light Auburn to get the look.
Remember the burnt orange hair trend? Well, now is the perfect time to bring it back to your attention—with a ginger twist, of course. Give this trendy hue new life by adding ginger highlights into the mix, which will create dimension and movement throughout your bold base color.
Bring on the spice! Cinnamon ginger hair is just what it sounds like—a blend of shades that mimic the two spices it’s named after. Think notes of brown, chestnut, and red mixed throughout.
While ginger hair tends to lean more natural than other red hair alternatives, copper hair is anything but. That’s why we’re fans of combining the two shades into a striking ombré hair color. Talk about the best of both worlds! Ask your colorist to start with ginger roots that gradually transition to a bright copper shade at the ends.
Amp up the warmth of your ginger hair color with caramel highlights. This rich blonde hue is perfect for those who want to add a bit of lightness to their ginger mane without taking away from the trendy color.
Dip-dyed red ends will add a statement pop to your ginger hair. This burst of color will make it seem as though your strands are on fire—in the best way! Even better, you can give the combo a test drive by spritzing the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Red onto your ends.
This sunny shade lies somewhere between blonde and red hair for a mane that’s sun-kissed and reminiscent of summer.
Play up the red tones in your ginger hair dye with a burgundy ginger ombré. Ask your colorist to create a burgundy base that seamlessly fades to a light ginger shade at your ends. Talk about a transition of colors!
Ginger face-framing highlights are beautiful, and they don’t require dyeing your whole head of hair.
When you think of ginger hair, you may be struck by its resemblance to auburn hair. Both colors feature notes of red and brown, but they’re just different enough that they pair perfectly together. For a bit of subtle dimension, add auburn lowlights throughout a ginger base.
Ginger ombré hair doesn’t have to go from dark to light. You can also switch things up with reverse ginger ombré. With this technique, your hair will start with a light ginger color at your roots and transition to a dark ginger shade at the ends.
Upgrade a black base with ginger highlights. Not just any highlights, though. We’re talking balayage highlights. These will add warmth and the perfect amount of contrast to your hair without a harsh line of demarcation.
To draw a bit more attention to your face, you can complement your ginger hair color with copper face-framing highlights.
It’s no secret that we love a blonde and ginger combo, so it should come as no surprise that blonde ginger ombré made it onto this list of ginger hair colors. With ginger roots that fade to pretty blonde ends, there’s a lot to love about this look.
We bet you didn’t see this combo coming! Purple ginger hair can be done in myriad ways, but it always involves incorporating both tones throughout your mane. One of our favorite variants of this trend involves starting with a light ginger base that fades to a bright, violet-purple shade at the ends. Pretty, right?
