30 Bold Hair Colour Ideas to Try For 2016



21 – Fiery Balayage Ombre

It’s almost a ombre but it’s not quite. It’s am ombre / balayage – a blend of various orangey-red and copper shades that still ombre down at the same time.

If you want to go with a bolder colour, this blend of shades is great for keeping it as natural as you can whilst still being as bold as you like. One dimensional colour is never good.


22 – Lavender, Pink + Silver Peekaboo

A peekaboo slash of colour is quite a brave look but with beautiful ash-brown and blonde / silver shades, these multi-tonal purple and lilac strips look just perfect.

If you want to play around with colour but don’t really want to do your entire head of hair, a peekaboo stripe is not only easy to do yourself at home, but can be relatively easily hidden with a clever pony or chignon.


23 – Red to Blonde Balayage

Is it bright and daring? We can’t make our mind up with this red to blonde balayage. If you have naturally gingery-strawberry-blonde hair, let your natural roots show through and just play around with colour on the ends.

If you need to give your hair a break and fancy leaving your roots to do their own things for a change, ombre and balayage colour designs are great because you can get away with more mistakes… And more regrowth too! This look won’t show if you haven’t managed to go to the hair salon for a couple of weeks!


24 – Rose Gold + Copper Toned Ombre

Another stunning red look in our list of bold hair colour ideas shows you pillar-box red isn’t just the only way to wear the colour red. There are lots of different tones here and they all work together to give you this stunning finished look.

These red, copy and orange blends of colour would look a little too out-there for most if it was a one-dimensional colour job but combined together and subtle melted in this way, the finished look is stunning. Great for those who want to embrace their inner feisty red-head!


25 – Unicorn Pink + Purple Colour Melt

If you liked the unicorn hair we featured earlier but found it a little too much, why not look at this lilac, purple and pink colour melt, mixing all the same colours just in a less dramatic way?

You could keep things super basic with your bold hair colour ideas by giving your entire head an all-over pink dye, leave it work its magic and then layer the other colours just at the ends of the hair (going halfway up) like the blues and purples you can see here. Alternatively, try hair chalks for a wash-in, one-day of rocking bright shades.





26 – Blonde to Brunette Soft Blend

A soft blend does pretty much what the name suggests – it softly blends a variety of colours or shades together to create a look that might blend a wide spectrum of shades but in a way that is easily worn and discreet. If you don’t want to go quite as crazy as mermaid or sunset hair, going with a soft blend is a great way to experiment with new colours.

If you have naturally dark hair and have worn it that way for many years, this is a great way to try a lighter shade without going for too much dedication to the cause. Bold hair colour ideas done the right way!


27 – Icy Silver + Blue Colour Melt

Of course, if you want to go for bold hair colour ideas, there’s nothing to stop you going for something daring like this. This icy silver and blue colour melt is simply breathtaking, almost Frozen-inspired some might say!

It’s a great way to change up a colour you already have, so add blue ends if you already have silver or grey hair, or go the other way – add silver to brighter blues and lilacs to tone it down a bit. That’s the thing about these playful colours – there’s so many ways to wear them, you’ll wonder why you never started before.


28 – Tousled Blonde Bombshell

Sometimes all you need to do is add some vintage curls for look that is up to date and instantly revitalised.

Just like this look – darker roots don’t matter when there’s plenty of volume to counteract them, and with a wide blend of blonde shades just like you can see here, you’re giving yourself a lot more breathing space in between appointments. When the look isn’t quite as structured as it would normally be, it’s much easier to not only change but grow out too. See, bold hair colour ideas don’t need to be crazy-bold. Even something as small as a little change from the norm can be bold for you!


29 – Peacock Peekaboo

We’ve had sunsets, mermaids and unicorns so it was only a matter of time before the preening peacock came into the mix and why not?

This purple and green peacock-inspired hair is not only beautifully unique but breathtaking to look at too. It might be a little too colourful for some but done properly, this is a bold hair colour design that will stand out for all the right reasons.


30 – Denim Hair

Denim acid wash hair just like this one is just another variation of wearing the colours and shades you might already have tried before.
