Jewel-toned hair colors are being seen near and far these days. While emerald and amethyst manes look gorgeous strolling around town, we can’t help but love magenta hair in particular. And it just so happens that magenta hair is one of the most popular hair color trends of the moment. Magenta is a rich berry color that can be customized for all skin tones, meaning it just might be the right hair color for you if you’re looking to make a colorful change. Before heading to the salon or trying to achieve a magenta hair color on your own, keep reading to learn everything you need to know about magenta hair, including how you can give the look a test drive with a temporary magenta hair dye.
Like all gemstone hair colors, magenta hair will look best when applied over a light base. When applied over a light color, like blonde hair, for example, your magenta hair will look much more vibrant. If you’re starting with a dark base color, you’ll most likely need to bleach your hair so that the rich pink magenta hair dye will show up on your strands. That’s why it may be a good idea to seek out a professional colorist since we all know how intimidating bleaching can be. That being said, you can get a magenta hair color at home. More on that just below!
Like we mentioned, you can DIY this bold hair color at home—with the help of an at-home magenta hair dye, of course. Take your pick from the below, based on how long you want to rock your berry pink hair.
If you want a temporary magenta hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Hot Pink or the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Raspberry. Both are designed for all hair colors and types and requires no bleaching. This hair color lasts until your next shampoo.
If you want a semi-permanent magenta hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Hot Pink. This magenta hair dye will last through seven to 15 shampoos.
If you want a permanent magenta hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Fuchsia.
Have a newly magenta mane? It’s time to make a few easy changes to your hair care routine, as color-treated hair requires special care. Follow our hair care tips for magenta hair.
If you have magenta hair, make room in your shower for some new products—namely a system consisting of a shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
Super-hot water can strip your strands of essential oils, which can leave your magenta hair feeling drier and looking duller, so rinse off in lukewarm temps instead.
Want to pair your magenta hair with a voluminous blowout? Make sure to use a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, first. Additionally, pay attention to the heat settings on your blow-dryer, flat iron, and curling iron—use the lowest temperature that you can while still only having to make one pass over each section of hair.
We happen to think magenta hair looks gorgeous when paired with wavy and curly hairstyles! So, put down the heat tools from time to time and rock your natural texture. Create beachy waves by spritzing a wave spray onto towel-dried hair, then braid your hair and let it air dry. Create one braid for looser waves or multiple braids for tighter waves. Once your hair has dried completely, undo the braids and be on your way.
Now that you’re a magenta hair expert, it’s time to learn about another trendy hair color. Check out our article, How to Get Burnt Orange Hair, for a fiery hair color alternative.
