Dyed and Gone to Heaven





by Kristie LeVangie

With bright floral prints and colorblocking in season for apparel, the color continues as the mane attraction when it comes to sun-kissed locks.

The red and blonde ombres of last season make way for some untraditional pops of color.

Pink is Chic

The pink trend has been seen on celebrities such as Emma Stone, Katy Perry, Rachel McAdams, Heidi Klum and Carrie Underwood.

Light pink, bright pink, a little pink, a lot of pink…it’s feminine and edgy…and reads like the opening of a Dr. Suess book.

Pink Hair



Get a clue.  Go for blue!

Both Katy Perry and Demi Lovato have taken blue to a whole new level.  Go bold!

Or soften it with a little less intensity.  Like this subdued hue.


Or this…


Purple is To Die For.

Katy Perry makes our list yet again.  This time she appears with her purple locks.

Whether it’s her intense royal purple,





…or something a bit more lilac…


Purple commands some attention.



Our longer stint with Mint.

Coming out of last season, mint green seems to be a color we aren’t yet willing to let go of.

When done well, mint hair can be a show-stopper.  We’ve found it on celebrities like Lady Gaga and Amanda Bines.

Colorful Tips

Color is fun, and giving your head a colorful makeover could be just the thing to get you through summer.  We have a few tips to help you with such a hair-raising decision.

1.  Decide how much color you are comfortable with.  Perhaps an all-over color isn’t something your job will allow.  Perhaps you aren’t necessarily bold enough to pull off an all-over color change.  Whether it’s tips, streaks or all-over commitment, this should be your first decision.

2.  After you’ve decided how much color you want, it’s time to decide on WHAT color.  First, look at your wardrobe.  If you wear a lot of pink, for instance, you may want to avoid pink hair.  Monochromatic isn’t the look we would promote here.  Instead, choose a nice contrasting color like blue to make your pink wardrobe pop.  You will also want to consider your eye and skin color.

3.  Keep it simple.  Too complex of color schemes can have you looking more clown than fashionista.

Don’t be afraid to play though.  More than one color can be awesome if you keep it simple.


4.  Do not color your eyebrows to match.  Enough said.  Really.

5.  As with any hair styling change, consider the health of your hair first and foremost.  Too much bleaching or dying can dry hair out and damage it.  Take the necessary steps to maintain your shine and the integrity of your locks.  After all, it’s hard to dye your bare scalp.

  1. I’ve liked seeing some of these out there . . . the reds of previous seasons always went unnoticed due to my red-green color blindness. (Although I can’t tell the difference between blue, purple, and pink, lol! I still like to see it.)

  2. I think I’ve had versions of all of these colors throughout the years: burgundy, red, fuschia, blue, black, and even blonde for a day. THAT was not a good look on me. Seems no matter what color I try to die my hair though, it always ends up red. Funny since I’m naturally a raven-headed woman.

    And I did not know you were colorblind. I learn something new every day.
