If you’re all about eGirl look, eGirl hair is a must for embracing this trendy aesthetic! Yup, the eGirl beauty trend has officially made its way from heart-shaped eyeliner to statement hair colors. Whether you consider yourself an eGirl by definition or just love to experiment with trending colors, we happen to think this hair color idea is a gorgeous option for just about anyone looking to branch out. Want to give it a try? Below, we’re sharing what the eGirl hair dye trend involves, how to get the look, and a few hairstyles you can sport to show off your newly colored tresses.
We bet you’re wondering: What is an eGirl hair color? Well, this color trend is all about the technique. eGirl hair features two face-framing hair streaks or highlights at the front of your mane, and the highlights must be in a contrasting hue. No subtle highlights here! Typically, the streaks are a vibrant red, bright pink, neon green, or platinum blonde shade, though they can be any color you wish—so long as there’s plenty of contrast!
Want to try the eGirl hair dye trend for yourself? DIYing this look is amazingly easy! Here’s what to do.
Part your hair down the middle, then grab two sections of hair at the front of your head, one on either side of your part. These sections can be as big or small as you’d like, depending on the look you’re going for. To stay true to the trend, make them between one and two inches wide. Clip the rest of your hair out of the way.
It’s almost time to color! The eGirl hair dye you use depends on how long you want to rock the trend.
If you want a temporary eGirl hair color…try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray or L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color.
If you want a semi-permanent eGirl hair color…try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color.
If you want a permanent eGirl hair color…try the L’Oréal Paris Féria.
Here's what you've been waiting for, apply the color to your face-framing sections, making sure to follow the directions that came with your eGirl hair dye.
Editor’s note: If you’re going the semi-permanent or permanent route and are starting with dark hair, keep in mind that you’ll most likely need to bleach your strands prior to coloring them. Do this at least 14 days before reaching for your hair dye to give your mane a break.
Ready to style your eGirl strands? Here are three options we love.
One of the most classic ways to show off your eGirl hair color is with a sleek, straight mane. This hairstyle is perfect for those who want to add an edgy touch to their look. For a step-by-step tutorial, check out our article, Super-Straight Strands Are In: Here's How to Get the Look.
Want to add a nostalgic twist to your mane? Double Dutch braids are the way to go! To really play up your eGirl hair color, leave your highlighted, face-framing strands hanging free while weaving the remainder of your mane into two Dutch braids.
Looped pigtails are a playful, flirty eGirl hairstyle with a subtle nod to nostalgia. Part your hair down the middle, splitting it into two sections. Working on the right side, gather your strands into a ponytail, but as you twist your hair elastic around your hair for the last time, pull the length of your ponytail almost all the way through the elastic. Secure so the ends are tied with the base, forming your first looped pigtail! Repeat on the left side.
Now that you’re familiar with the eGirl hair trend, we’re sure you’d like to brush up on another viral hair color! Head over to our article, Silver Purple Hair Is the Perfect Hybrid Hue, to do just that.
