Funky Hair Color Ideas
Funky Hair Color Ideas?
A reader asks;
I have strawberry blonde hair and i would like to dye it a light brown and add some blonde at the bottom. i have short layers at the top and long at the bottom. will this look right? please give me some comments soon because im going to book the hairdressers, any pics would be lovely. Or is this just a funky hair color idea?
Couldn’t come up with a picture of the funky hair color as you’re describing, mostly because this technique is more often done the other way around. That is, lighter on top and darker underneath. I recently wrote an article about this funky hair color idea.
“Funky Hair Color
can be stunning
if done right”
Before jumping in, consider this: Coloring the hair lighter on top will be easier to keep up and will create a more dramatic contrast between the two hair colors. The hair on top, if a light brown, will naturally lighten up as the hair color starts to fade and the contrast from the top to the underneath blonde layers will lessen. Coloring lighter on top will high light around the face and the darker layers underneath will look more natural and not quite such a funky hair color.
This type of funky hair color technique, although not conventional, can be stunning if done right, or, it will look like a bad hair color job if it’s not done right. Be sure and find a hair colorist who has experience, believe me, you won’t regret it. Ask the hair colorist what to expect as far as upkeep and cost on this kind of hair color processing for your hair.
So, if I were you, I would first consider lightening your hair with blonde high lights and using a darker hair extension underneath. That way, you will save not only wear and tear on your hair, but also costly hair coloring appointments. You could actually pay for the hair extension in what you save by not needing the hair color upkeep. If you don’t want to go that route, my recommendation would be to go lighter on top and darker underneath. Jessica Simpson’s HairUWear has an easy-to-use hair salon locator, or an online store. They have both synthetic and real hair pieces.
