In today’s world, hair coloring has changed drastically from just going from a brunette to a blonde. Now, fashion has turned towards the fantastical and the mismatched. This means that you’ll have your chance to have beautifully unnatural hair in 2017.
This will give you a beautiful, almost unearthly look, while also being playful and unique. If you prefer warmer, more earthy options, there are dyes for that, as well. Rose gold ombré and tigers eye styles are both very warm color options that add a bit of glam to your appearance. If you want something for a more serious profession, these are certainly options to try. And that’s just the beginning.
There are more options that you’ll find everyone can enjoy. Whether you want to look light, airy, and ethereal, or fierce, fiery, and glamorous, there are amazing dye trends that you should definitely choose for your hair in 2017!
1. Mint Green
This is a continuation of 2016’s obsession with pastel hair colors, but with a twist. Instead of the more popular pinks that we’ve seen, 2017’s pastel hair trend will make others green with envy! This is a great choice for those who have always liked the pastel trend, but wanted cooler colors.
For those will fair or pink skin complexions, this will stand out without making your skin look washed out or red. Just be careful of the shade that you choose, or you’ll end up with lime green locks. For extra safety, let a professional do it.
The ombré has been in style for a long while, but it’s still going to be going strong in 2017. The main difference here will be the types of and colors of the ombré. If you like your basic ombré colors, but want something a little bit different, you should ask your stylist for an eclipting ombré.
This style is similar to balayage, in that it is hand-painted highlights that help to blend from one hair color to the other. The main difference with eclipting is that it takes your facial features into account, and is altered to really bring out your favorite features.
3. Smoky Lilac
This is another take on 2016’s favorite pastel trend. But, unlike the mint green mentioned above, smokey lilac is a more muted pastel color, instead of a cooler one. This is a beautiful color that is beautiful on any and all skin tones, from very dark to very light.
You don’t have to worry about it clashing, or washing you out. If you’ve always wanted to go purple, but haven’t been courageous enough to go completely violet, then this is perfect! Want to keep it more subtle than a complete dye job? Try smokey lilac highlights, or even dye your tips.
4. Tiger Eye
This is another form of ombré, but one with a very precise type of coloring. Tigers eye ombrés draw inspiration from its namesake stone, the tigers eye. That means that, once you dye your hair, it will be a beautiful mixture of dark brown or black, lighter brown, and an almost-glowing golden brown.
This is a simmering color that brings warmth to your look. This is accomplished by using a technique called balayage, which are hand-painted highlights done by your stylists. If you’re looking to get into the ombré trend, but don’t want to go bright or stay completely dark, then this might be the trend for you!
Pastels were big in 2016, and it looks like they’re going to be big in 2017, as well. And it’s obvious as to why: It gives everyone a chance to choose unnatural hair colors without straying into punk territory. Instead, choosing pastels makes you seem either soft and pretty or quirky and cute. The basic colors are still in fashion. Pinks and purples can look good on anyone of any skin tone, though the fairer the skin, the lighter your color should be. If you’d rather not go all-out with your hairdye, you can still make the most of this by getting streaks.
6. Black and White Ombré
This is one of the more punkish hair styles coming onto the scene in 2017, but it’s still beautiful. Best of all, it’s fairly work-friendly. It will, however, require a little bit more work than other hair colors. To get a beautiful mix of black and white, your hair will need to be bleached until white, then parts will need to be dyed a deep, shiny black. Because of this, this is definitely a job that you’ll want to leave to your stylist.
To stay out of zebra territory, you’ll want to avoid getting streaks in your hair and stick to the ombré.
7. Galaxy Hues
With the comeback of space adventures, these out-of-this-world hair colors have had a resurgence, as well. These are bright, beautiful color mixtures that bring to mind swirling galaxies far, far away. This is perfect for those who want to look like ethereal beings, and want to stick out from a crowd. The basic colors that you’ll want to look into are pinks, fuchsia, purples, and blues. These add the best mixture while still invoking space.
If your hair is naturally light, keep it on the mostly pink end of the spectrum. For darker hair, it should be mostly purple and blue.
Without a doubt, 2017 is going to be a year of no-rules hair coloring. Whether you prefer the soft prettiness of the pastel hair colors, or if you want to go more rock and roll with the black and white ombré, there is a hair color that fits you and your personality. Reinvent yourself in 2017!
