In the market for a new hair color? If you’ve been feeling particularly stuck in the process of choosing your next strand shade, maybe you’re looking in the wrong place. Instead of choosing yet another blonde, brunette, black, or red hue, why not have a little fun and consider one of the wild hair colors that is making a huge statement this year? Whether you’re looking for a semi-permanent or permanent hair color, we’re here to make your biggest beauty goals come true. Ready to break away from classic hair colors and find your new look? Read on for seven wild (and trendy!) hair colors that will take your tresses to the next level.

WHO SHOULD GET A WILD HAIR COLOR?

Worried you won’t be able to pull off a wild hair color? Stop right there! We’re firm believers that you should try any hair color you’d like! Since wild hair colors come in all shades and tones, there’s something for every skin tone. That being said, the real thing to consider when thinking about getting a little wild with your hair is where your strands will be on display. Do you work in a creative field? You’re in the clear! More of a professional 9-5 gig? You may want to keep it a bit more low key. That doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the wild hair color fun—it just means you might want to opt for a hidden hair color application technique, like hidden rainbow roots.

Wild Hair Color Idea #1: Light Lavender

We understand if a vivid violet may seem a little too wild for your first foray into colorful hair, but don’t rule out purple strands all together. Prep your hair for spring with a soft lavender shade.  

For a semi-permanent option…try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Lavender.

For a permanent option…try the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Hair Color in Smokey Lavender.

Wild Hair Color Idea #2: Deep Teal

Wild hair colors don’t have to be super-bright or oh-so-light—you can branch out while keeping your hair color dark. If that appeals to you, than a deep teal might be right up your alley.

For a semi-permanent option…try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Teal.

For a permanent option…try the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Hair Color in Vintage Teal.

Wild Hair Color Idea #3: Tangerine

Hair resembling your favorite citrus fruit isn’t exactly conventional, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a major hair color trend.

Who says blue is for boys and pink is for girls? Not us, that’s for sure! Baby blue hair is appropriate for people of all genders, which is perfect, since we can’t get enough of it.

For a semi-permanent option…try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Blue.

Wild Hair Color Idea #5: Dusty Mauve

Mauve hair is most definitely different from what you were born with, but it doesn’t look quite as out there as you might assume. The dusty, grayish purple color is surprisingly easy to pull off in everyday life.

For a permanent option…try the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Hair Color in Dusty Mauve.

Wild Hair Color Idea #7: Mint

It’s easy to see why you might want a mint hair color; the shade is just as refreshing as a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Not to mention, mint hair is the ideal mix of edgy and sweet.

For a semi-permanent option…try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Mint.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO CARE FOR A WILD HAIR COLOR?

How you care for and maintain your freshly colored mane will depend on what kind of hair color you opted for—semi-permanent or permanent. If you settled on a semi-permanent wild hair color, you won’t need to worry about maintenance, as it will wash out in just a few shampoos no matter how you proceed. Now, if you decided to go with a more permanent option, that’s another story. As with all permanent hair colors, in order to help maintain your hue, you’ll need to change up your hair care routine—see below.

1. Switch out your shampoo and conditioner. Stock your shower with a system of nourishing shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair, such as the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner. Then, once or twice a week, reach for the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Renourishing Butter instead of conditioner to give your wild hair color the extra TLC it deserves.

2. Turn down the heat. It’s not all about the products you use. Your shower preferences play a part in how your hair looks and feels, too. Show your wild hair color some love by turning down the dial in the shower—after all, scalding hot water can strip your hair of oils. Rinse off in lukewarm water instead.

3. Embrace your hair’s natural texture. Wild hair colors look so pretty when paired with curls or waves, so spritz some of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto wet hair, then let your hair air dry for natural, carefree waves.
