I don’t know about you, but I’m all about rose gold everything. All you have to do is step into my house for two seconds to know that I’m not joking.

To create this color, go for a golden blonde with pinkish undertones.

This is an excellent way to hide brassy tones. Keracolor even makes a rose gold clenditioner to keep your hair looking fresh in between touch-ups.

#2. Silver

Silver hair has stayed pretty popular over the last five years or so… although the trend has evolved into more of a heavy ash.

Isn’t it ironic that people with naturally grey hair go to great lengths to hide it while the younger girls are purposely dying their hair silver?

#3. Turquoise

Turquoise is a bluish-green color meant to mimic the popular ornamental gemstone.

It’s important to note that the hair needs to be lightened thoroughly before applying this color, or else the yellow undertones can make it look greener than desired.

#4. Baby Pink

Baby pink hair is really just a light shade of pastel pink hair color. It differs from rose gold in that it is much lighter and should be absent of golden undertones.

To achieve this hue, the hair should be lightened to a very light blonde before applying the pink color.

#5. Lilac

Lilac is a beautiful light shade of purple, with silver undertones… meant to resemble the lilac flower’s fabulous purple hues.

Like other colors on this list, best results are achieved on pre-lightened hair.

#6. Mint Green

Mint green is a super light shade of true green, without any warm or cool undertones. For an extra bold look, try a slightly darker shade on the roots.

#7. Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue is an ultra-bold, vibrant shade of deep blue. Although it stands strong on its own, this amazing shade of blue looks even better when paired with darker colors like black or dark brown.

#8. Scarlet Red

Scarlet is defined as a deep red with a tiny bit of orange in it. It can even be worn as a darker red color and is perfect for winter this year!

#9. Lime Green

Lime green hair is a super vibrant shade of light green.

I’d say it’s the color of a lime, but it’s really a lot brighter and more vibrant… but it’s also a lot more interesting. Electrifying!

#10. Copper Orange

Orange hair is a color that’s on the rise right now. Most people try to stay away from orangish tones, but now that they are becoming more popular, embrace it and rock it.
