In a time where pastel hair colors are just about everywhere, you might still be wondering if you can get away with something a bit more out there, like green hair. As it turns out, green hair happens to be one of the hottest hair color trends for 2019—with no signs of slowing down come 2020. And while green hair dye is often associated with grunge girls, it’s actually a hair color that anyone can pull off—if you find the right shade. From lime to mint to dark green hair, keep reading for our guide to the best green hair colors to try this year. Bonus: We’ll also share how to take care of your newly green mane.


If you’re smitten over the pastel hair color trend, then you’ll be excited about this ultra-light but equally bright green hair color, which resembles your favorite scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Get ready to look downright delectable! Who should rock this color? It’s best suited to those with light skin tones. If that’s you, get the look at home with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Pastel Mint.


Dark green hair may seem a little too bold if you aren’t used to edgy hair colors, but it’s actually one of your more wearable options! If you already have dark brown or black hair, updating your mane with a green tint will be about as subtle as green hair can get.


Another semi-pastel green hair color, seafoam green hair tends to be a bit more subdued than mint, with just a hint more baby blue. If you have light hair, this color will be very easy to create and will create a look of calming peace—just like the oceans that inspired the name. Like mint, this green hair color will be most flattering on those with light skin tones.


More of a gemstone girl? This jewel-toned hair color is the perfect way to get in on the green hair trend. Wear it on its own or rock a rooted mane for an extra edgy look. This dark shade is perfect for fall and winter, and the rich color will look beautiful against medium and dark skin tones. To test out the hue, pick up the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Green.


If you keep up with fashion, it won’t come as a surprise that lime green hair is totally on-trend. After all, fashion and beauty trends almost always bleed into one another, and we can’t seem to look anywhere as of late without seeing chartreuse hoodies and accessories. Of course, this bold hue isn’t for everyone, but give it a try if you’re feeling daring. (Not totally sure it’s the right color for you? Use a temporary green hair dye to take it for a test drive!)


If you love the gray and yellow undertones of olive green, moss green may be your green hair color match. The hue features the same undertones and is flattering on all skin tones. Both bold and subdued, it’s the perfect way to try out the green hair color trend.


Can’t choose between a blue hair color and a green one? One option is to rock a half and half hair color, but you can also consider mixing both shades into one dimensional hair color. Blue-green hair is super pretty and can flatter just about anyone, as you can customize the color, going more blue or more green depending on your preferences. For your own blue-green mane, use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Teal.


Honestly, there’s nothing more eye-catching than super-bright neon green hair. If you’re looking to make a statement with your green hair color, neon green locks may just be the way to do it. The daring color looks great on all skin tones. To take it for a temporary spin, use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Neon Green to color your strands.


If you love subdued hair colors that scream minimalism, then sage green hair could be for you. This soft green hair color borders on the edge of natural earth hues, making it a gorgeous option for a subtle yet seriously pretty shade update.


There’s no denying that green hair is gorgeous—but to keep it looking that way, you’re going to want to make a few changes to your hair care routine. We’ve outlined them all for you below. Green hair, do care!

Tip #1: Turn down the dial in the shower. Super-hot water can strip your strands of essential oils, which can lead to your green hair feeling drier and looking duller. So, the next time you hop in the shower, turn down the dial and rinse off in lukewarm water instead. Sure, it may not feel quite as relaxing, but your green hair color will surely thank you!

Tip #2: Switch to a system of shampoo, conditioner, and mask formulated for color-treated hair. Make room in your shower for some new products, including a shampooconditioner, and hair mask. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting ShampooL’Oréal Paris Hair Elvive Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.

Tip #3: Protect your tresses before heat-styling. Heat tools can prove to be useful in creating a ton of different hairstyles, but before you go picking one up, make sure to apply a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray or L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, first.
