Spring is just around the corner, which means you may be looking to switch up your winter hair color for a fun, lively one in time for the new season. And what better way to freshen up your spring hair than with a floral-inspired hair color.
From red to pink to fiery orange, there are infinite floral-inspired hues to choose from that look flattering on all hair types and textures and against all skin tones. You can change up your brown hue to a dark auburn color inspired by a rose or you can add some pink highlights to your blonde tresses to emulate a cherry blossom. Either way, it’s a nice change of pace for those getting bored of their usual brown, black, blonde or red tresses. Plus, opting for a floral-inspired hue is a great way to add a unique touch to your hairstyle and make a vibrant yet polished statement.
But trying to narrow down the best spring hair color can be a head-spinning experience. Luckily, we’re here to help you get on the hair color trend and find the perfect shade for you. Keep scrolling for the best floral-inspired hues blooming with color — and how to get them at home.
1. Cherry Blossom Pink
Nothing screams springtime more than blooming cherry blossoms. So here is your chance to look pretty in pink with the L'Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Smokey Pink. This blushing pastel hue is totally customizable and can be worn as highlights or a totally new hair color.
Just note that if you have darker strands, you’ll likely have to lighten your hair with bleach before you can achieve pink hair. For best results, we recommend heading to the salon so your hairstylist can safely transform your hair to a personalized pink.
Editor’s tip: If you’re not ready to commit to a permanent dye, you can try using a temporary hair color instead, such as the L'Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Pink.
2. Rose Red
Name a more iconic flower than the rose — go on, we’ll wait. If you’re looking for a hair color that isn’t too out there, this deep shade of red will give off a natural-looking color and add depth to your tresses.
