Best Hair Color Ideas in 2018

Dying your hair a new color is a perfect way of renewing your style: the right dye can have amazing effects in the way you look, but sometimes it’s just not easy to choose which color to use. There are so many options, both regarding colors and styles: would you go for a full dye, a mix of colors, or just get highlights? What color would look better in short and long hair?

Intense black

If you have a light skin tone and not-so-dark natural hair, try out dying it an intense shade of black. The dark hair will bring a nice gloss to your hair and highlight your facial features because of the contrast with your skin tone. If you choose this shade for your hair, choose also intense colors for your lipstick and you look like a complete femme fatale!


This shade, the complete opposite of an intense black tone, looks especially well if you go for a pixie cut or in general short hair, but will also look nice in long, straight hair. Bleach your hair almost completely and go for a clean tone of silver or platinum. If you want a nice contrast, then retain some of your natural roots under your silver hair.

Blonde with contrasting roots

This style looks extremely well if you have dark brown natural hair: dye your hair blonde, but retain part of your roots in your natural color. This contrast will look fierce and add a powerful touch to your look. Another thing to note is that this style requires less maintenance, because you have to worry less about your roots.



This fantasy color is one of the most popular right now, and goes extremely well with short to medium length hair, contrasting nicely with any skin tone too. It’s easy to apply if you get a do-it-yourself formula, and the best part about dying your hair purple is that it does not require you to bleach your hair first: no matter if you have light or dark natural hair, dying it purple will make you look exotic and not require a lot of setup and maintenance.


Light pink

This tone has been gaining momentum in younger people, and will therefore give you a young and relaxed look to renew your style without worrying too much about it. This light pink color, reminiscent of cotton candy, oscillates between pink and a pale tone, and looks better in wavy or curly, short hair.


Subtle dye

Finally, you can also go for a dye tone that looks almost exactly like yours, just one or two tones lighter, and dye the lower half of your hair this tone. This subtle change will make your hair look exotic and add attractiveness to it, while retaining a shade similar to your natural hair.
