The peach trend has officially moved beyond eye makeup. Now, celebrities and everyday girls alike are rocking this pretty hue on their hair. Want to get in on the peachy fun? This muted pinkish, orange shade looks gorgeous on all skin tones, with the trick being to find the right version of the color to complement your complexion. Below, find the best shade of perfect peach shade for your skin tone and learn how to bring the look to life at home.

Find the Right Shade of Peach Hair for Your Skin Tone

If you’re ready to take the peach plunge, consider your skin tone and natural hair color before coloring your hair.

If you have fair skin or light hair…opt for a light to medium peach. Think about it: 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 carrot-top look, you should make sure your peach has more orange in it than pink.

If you have olive skin or dark hair...the darker your skin and starting hair color, the darker peach shade you can get away with. A great way to amp up your peach is with an ombré accent. All you have to do is concentrate a darker peach at the roots and let it fade beautifully into a pastel salmon color.

If you have dark skin…you want a peach hair color that really pops. To get the look, mix coral and strawberry tones together for a bright, vibrant orangey-pink ‘do.

What You Need to Know Before Dyeing Your Hair Peach

As with all vibrant ‘dos, peach hair will require quite a bit of work to achieve. If you’re starting with a dark base color, you’ll need to bleach your hair first so that the color will show up. That being said, you do have options—you can visit a colorist or you can DIY it. The choice is up to you!

How to Get Peach Hair at Home

It’s time to use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Peach! Just keep in mind that depending on your starting hair color, your process will be a bit different. If you have bleached, light blonde, or highlighted hair, follow the included instructions. You’ll want to shampoo and dry your hair fully first, then apply the product onto desired areas (avoiding the scalp), saturating your hair (make sure to wear the included gloves). Leave the color on for 15-30 minutes for best results, then rinse hair thoroughly with water.

If you’re starting with brunette hair, you can still get the look at home if you’d like. You’ll just need to bleach your locks first, which you can do with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Bleach. Follow the enclosed instructions, then move on to applying your peach color. Think about where you want to place your peach—you don’t have to opt for allover color. Instead, you may want to consider just bleaching your ends or creating highlights and applying your peach hue over that for an on-trend look.

How to Take Care of Your New Peach Hair Color

Colored your hair peach? Congrats! Now it’s time to care for your strands the right way. That means using a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner.

Peach locks need a little extra love? Once or twice a week, swap out the conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Ultra Recovery Mask. Also, give the heat tools a rest and air dry your hair from time to time. After towel-drying your hair, spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, braid your hair, then undo the braid once your hair has dried for some nice texture—no heat tools necessary!
