It’s not hard to instantly fall in love with the peach colored hair trend that’s gracing our social media feeds. Peach tones are gorgeous for blush, lipstick and even peach eyeshadow, so it’s no wonder the pinky-orange hue looks so good on hair.
When you find the right version of the color to complement your skin tone, peach colored strands are a showstopper on everyone. If you love peach hair as much as we do, keep reading to find the perfect shade of peach for your skin tone and how to achieve this color at home.
How To Find the Right Peach Hair Color for Your Skin Tone
If you have fair skin, opt for a light to medium peach hue. Natural redheads tend to have fair skin so there’s no chance this will look anything less than fabulous on you. If you want to go for a more citrus-like look, make sure your peach shades lean more orange than pink.
If you have olive skin, try out a darker peach shade. If you have grown out highlights or balayage, try adding peach hair color to your bleached strands. It’s a great way to try out peach hair with a more subtle effect.
If you have dark skin, go for a vibrant shade of peach that really pops. Achieve this look by mixing coral and strawberry tones for a bright orangey-pink hue.
What You Need To Know About Getting Peach Hair
Like most vibrant hair colors, peach hair requires quite a bit of work to achieve along with routine maintenance once you have it. If you’re starting with a dark base color, you’ll need to bleach your hair first so the color can show up. That being said, you do have options — you can visit a colorist or try it out at home.
How To Get Peach Hair at Home
Whether you go for a whole head of peachy strands or just add some highlights, keep reading to learn how to transform your hair into a peach-hued masterpiece.
Keep in mind that depending on your starting hair color, your process for going peach will vary. If you have bleached, light blonde, or highlighted hair you can go straight for the peach hair dye. If you have dark hair, there’s a few more steps in the process.
2. Bleach Dark Hair
If you’re working with darker hair, there’s a bit more to the process but don’t worry, you can still get peach colored strands at home. First, you’ll need to bleach your strands with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Bleach. Follow the enclosed instructions as you lighten your hair.
3. Pick Your Style
Speaking of applying your peach hair dye, think about where you want to place your peach. If you don’t want to opt for all-over color, you may want to consider just bleaching your ends, creating highlights or going for a peachy money piece.
4. Dye Your Hair
It’s time to finally apply the peach hair color and the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Coral Pink will suit your needs. With a mix of pink and coral hues, we can’t help but think it’s perfect for getting a pinky-peach hue at home. Follow the enclosed directions when applying the dye.
How To Take Care Of Your New Peach Hair Color
Time to give your new peach strands some love. This means using a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care Bond Strengthening Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Strengthening Conditioner. This shampoo and conditioner duo is gentle on color-treated hair and helps to strengthen hair inside and out by reinforcing weak hair bonds.
If your peach colored strands are extra dry, add a hydrating hand mask to your routine, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Signature Masque, Color Care Hair Mask. This sulfate-free mask is safe for color treated hair, offering intense hydration and nourishment.
Another tip to help your peach hair color go the distance is to leave your hot tools behind. Instead of relying on hot temperatures to style your strands, add a few heat-free products, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, to your routine.
If your hairstyle calls for heat tools, make sure to always reach for a heat protectant to help protect your strands. We love the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, which works to seal in shine, condition your hair, calm frizz and protect your hair against heat damage.
