Guys, there’s no reason you can’t have just as much fun with your hair color as the gals do. Changing your hair color is a great way to change up your image and keep up with the latest fashion trends. And there’s no limit to your options. Don’t let women have all the fun with their mermaid hair, unicorn hair, pastels, and bright colors. You can opt for the same treatments in darker shades that are typically thought of as more masculine or throw caution to the wind and choose whatever colors make you happy. It takes a sexy amount of confidence to rock an unexpected color. So what hair colors are hot for men this season? Let’s take a look at a few.
Sun-Streaked Highlights- Whatever your base color you can liven things up with a few well-placed ultra-light pieces concentrated on the top and front. This looks best when you choose a much lighter shade of your all-over color to add little pops of contrast. These highlights pair perfectly with a highly styled pompadour.
Brilliant Brown- How do you make brown brilliant you ask? By adding the perfect amount of subtle highlights and lowlights to bring it to life. No more flat mousy brown. This color is full of dimension and depth. It’s a gorgeous way to spice up a natural color.
Silver Fox- Regardless of age, gray is always a super sexy look. Gray adds a level of sophistication and mystique to any style, while at the same time looking totally rockstar. Look polished and professional with a silver Ivy League cut or go for a relaxed bad boy vibe with a tousled undercut. Get a hipster look by dying curls on top silver with a dark undercut underneath.
Blonde Balayage- Balayage is perfect for medium to long locks. It creates a dreamy sunkissed look. Darker natural roots fading to blonde ends give you a low-maintenance color that will grow out seamlessly. The lighter ends will also provide a great contrast to a darker beard for a very eye-catching look.
Merman Hair- Long wavy locks are the perfect canvas for this unique hair color. Shades of blue, green, and purple are hand painted onto your strands to create a mesmerizing effect that commands attention. This is a color that you can really have fun with.
Chocolate Brown- Dark colors are in high demand for men this season. Rich, deep, chocolate brown is the perfect way to embrace this trend. Brown tends to be a bit matte and dull, but with some subtle roasted almond highlights, it will be anything but.
Whatever color you choose you’ll want to keep it looking great for as long as possible. You can keep your color bright and fresh with a few tweaks to your hair care routine meant to prevent fading. Choose only products formulated to be gentle on color-treated hair. If you aren’t getting dirty and sweaty every day you probably don’t need to shampoo daily, which will fade your color faster. A quick cool rinse in the shower should be sufficient to keep your hair fresh between washes without washing out your color. If you have to be out in the sun, apply sunscreen to your hair or wear a hat to keep the sun from bleaching your strands. And if you go swimming, wet your hair with fresh water and apply a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair from absorbing too many pool chemicals, and then wash your hair with color-safe shampoo immediately after to remove chlorine and other harsh chemicals that can damage your color.
