How to pull off brightly colored hair as an adult


As rebellious teenagers, we dreamed of (and sometimes did) having brightly colored hair. Pink, blue, green or even deep, bright red were all colors once reserved for youth. As adults more and more people are going bold with brightly colored hair and not making any excuses for it either. Check with your hair salon in Hillsborough, NJ and find out what colors they will do. It can be chic, sophisticated and surprisingly subtle. While not every person can pull it off, it is a lot easier than you might think. Read on to find out how to pull of brightly colored hair as an adult.

When we think of bright hair, we think Pink with her, well, pink hair! Or maybe Katy Perry’s neon blue. Not exactly discreet hair and not exactly someone in the corporate world would do. But there are subtle ways to getting bright hair without being too extreme. One way is by taking the bright shade and layering underneath your natural dark brown color. If it is purple you are aiming for, then the violet section is only noticeable in the sun or when you put your hair up into a bun or ponytail. The overall effect is really very pretty.

Due to its popularity, hair colorists have come up with creative ways to apply neon highlights and companies are offering temporary products that range from extensions to chalk. These options are great for people who are interested in the trend but not ready to commit. If you are looking for blue hair for a year or an hour, you can have either. It isn’t about age; it’s about being true to your own style.

In addition to coloring your hair with a bright color on the underside, you can go for the look of just coloring your bangs, which again, means coloring underneath the bangs. It will add dimension in addition to the color. If you like highlights, try the dip-dyed look. The neon color gradually becomes darker at the ends. The bonus to coloring the tips of your hair is that if you hate it, you can always have the bottom inches cut off. It’s also easier to hide just in case your conservative boss isn’t crazy about it. You can wrap your hair in a bun and tuck the ends underneath.

For another take on bright shades, ask your colorist to select just a few strands of hair to color. Pick an inconspicuous spot like the hair behind your ears or in other strategic spots so that when your hair moves the light will catch the color. Of course, if you aren’t ready to make such a huge commitment you can choose temporary color or extensions that just clip into your hair. They are available in an array of colors.

If you are over the age of 25, you can still retain some of your youth and color your hair in bright colors. There are no rules when it comes to our hair and any hair salon should be able to get a color you want. The only limitations you have on this color trend is your imagination.
