10 Ways to Add a Pop of Color to Your Hair 10 Ways to Add a Pop of Color to Your Hair 10 Ways to Add a Pop of Color to Your Hair

It’s no secret that rainbow hair colors are having quite the moment. From everyday life to the runways—encompassing everything from pastel pinks to bold denim blues—pops of color are just about everywhere. Do you want to get in on all the colorful action? There’s never been a better time! And that doesn’t mean you have to dye your entire head of hair. There are plenty of inventive ways to incorporate a fun hair color into your daily life. With inventive highlights, dip dye techniques, and ombré approaches, we’ve rounded up the top 10 ways to embrace a colorful look without going overboard.  

1. BOLD BANGS

Whether you have straight across or side-swept bangs, your fringe can be the perfect place to add a pop of color. With just a smidge of color, you can frame your face and bring out the colors in your eyes. Pick a hue that’s complementary to your skin’s undertones. If you have warm undertones, opt for warm pops of color and if you have cool undertones, choose cooler hues. 

2. Tinted Dark Hair

Who said light-haired girls can be the only ones having fun with their hair color? Sure, it may take a bit of bleaching and a little more time at the salon when you start out with a darker color—but it’ll totally be worth it when you see the end result. Whether you want to go bold with a vibrant turquoise—like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Turquoise—or keep it low-key with a muted lavender, your hair will be on point.

3. DIP DYE

One of the best ways to add a pop of color to your hair is to dip dye the ends. The best part about dip dyeing is that—much like a messy bun—it’s not meant to look perfect. So, whether you want to dip some sections higher than others or use different colors altogether, the end result will be nothing short of eye-catching. 

4. HAIR COLOR SPRAYS

Not ready to make a major color commitment? No worries—you can still add a pop of color to your tresses. All you need is a temporary hair color spray. Perfect for experimenting with color, the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray will wash out in the shower. And, hey, you might even find you love the look and be inspired to try something a little longer lasting. 

5. GO FOR GOLD…ROSE GOLD, THAT IS

If a headful of highlights and lowlights or an allover classic dye isn’t your idea of being creative with your hair, then why not switch up your color palette a bit? If you’ve scrolled through your social media feeds recently, then there’s a good chance you’ve seen that rose gold hair is trending. This metallic hair color puts a twist on redheaded bliss with a pinkish finish, making it a stunningly unique alternative to traditional color choices. Get the look temporarily with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Rose Gold.

6. HIDDEN HUES

If you work in an office, an allover vivid dye job may be out of the question. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun! Instead of dyeing your full head of hair, simply head to the salon and ask your colorist for a hidden dye job. The color will live within the under-layer of your hair, so it will only be visible during excessive hair flips and when you pull your hair up. Hide it on the weekdays and show it off on the weekends! 

7. PASTEL BLONDE

White blonde hair is pretty alluring on its own. So can you just imagine the statement you could make when you incorporate a series of pastel highlights or an allover wash? Perfect for showcasing super-pale hues, white blonde hair will be the base of your bold—but not overstated—new ‘do. To take this look for a test drive, add subtle stripes of the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Blue, Pastel Lavender, and Pastel Mint.

8. RAINBOW ROOTS

Once upon a time, a harsh line between your roots and the rest of your hair color was a big no-no. Not anymore, though! Nowadays, street style looks are teeming with ROYGBIV-colored roots that make a bold statement. 

9. RANDOM STREAKS

Perfect for the girl who loves an avant-garde approach, random color streaks can add the perfect amount of color—not to mention dimension—to your strands. 

10. SUPER-SUBTLE OMBRÉ 

Why not get creative with a slightly-more-than-dip-dyed ends approach? With the right ombré painted onto your strands, you’ll be able to gently transition between your natural color and a series of others without any harsh lines of demarcation.
