It seems everyone is rocking the green hair trend … in various forms. Intrigued? Check out these 20 green-infused hairstyles that will have you running to the salon!
20 Ideas on Green Hair Trend
Green in highlights on a natural-colored base, green in ombre, green to compliment another unnatural hair color, like blue or purple, or total green with darkened roots? Here you’ll find inspiration for everything mentioned and much more!
#1: Multicolored Pixie Cut
Why stick to just one hair color when you can double up? Pair your fave green color with a vibrant purple shade and watch some serious sparks fly. When rocked with a pixie cut, this purple and green look is edgy and way cool.
#2: Beautifully Braided Mermaid Hair
Nothing shows off deep blue and green hair like an intricately braided mane. Crown your jade mane with six braids that meet somewhere at the back of your head and cascade down in a lovely fishtail plait. You will definitely be turning heads with this one!
#3: Stripes of Color
Can’t commit to a full head of green hair? Start small (but sassy) with a stripe of green and blue. This will show off your daring side while still keeping you in the safe zone. It’s a great transition to full-blown color.
#4: Bright Green Ombré Hair
Take the ombré trend to the next level by adding some neon green color to the ends of your hair. This looks great on an ashy blonde base and adds a colorful edge to any style. Go ahead, take a risk!
#5: Mermaid Magic
Why should mermaids have all the fun? Indulge your inner sea creature and try a whimsical spin on the popular balayage trend. Go for emerald green hair that fades out to a soft mint green and see if you’re not ready to live a life under the sea.
#6: 50 Shades of Green
If you’re gonna go green, go big and try on multiple shades. Splash your hair with shades of teal, emerald and lime and you’ll have a look that’s full of life and dimension … just like you.
#7: Pretty and Plaited Jade Hair
Nothing shows off a beautiful forest green hair color like a braid. If you’ve got thick, textured hair, this pretty plaited look is perfect for you. Create a Dutch braid down the back of your head and tug at it so it’s full and voluminous.
#8: Gradient Locks
Pair your edgy, chic bob with an equally edgy hair color. Blue and green hair will look amazing with a chin-length cut and show people your fancy-free side!
#9: Icy Green Ringlets
Channel your inner ice princess with a light teal hair look that’s as beautiful as it is edgy. Start off with some silver blonde roots that transition seamlessly into soft teal tresses. You’ll be moving into your ice castle in no time.
#10: Teal Green Dreamsicle
The fun, colorful look of your favorite childhood treat can be yours! Give your hair a popsicle makeover by adding horizontal layers of blue, teal and grey. The results are magically delicious.
#11: Top Heavy Hair
While your first inclination might be to try a green hair color at the ends of your locks, why not put a fun spin on that classic ombré and start your brighter color at the roots. Dye the top of the head a lovely teal shade and transition to a lighter hue for an unpredictable look that will make heads turn.
#12: Silver and Teal Tresses
Sliver and green seem to be the dynamic duo in the hair world. This color pairing is really making a splash in a big way, and it looks especially lovely when done in a balayage format. Try some cool slate grey roots that shift to a vibrant teal and you’ll have the trendiest hairstyle on the block.
#13: Lovely Lime Green Highlights
Give your mane a flourescent makover by adding some lime green streaks to it! Chunky lime sections will blend nicely with your natural black or brown hair color and make the color transition seamless. Just make sure you equip yourself with the right hair products to protect your black and green color, and your hair, of course!
#14: Lined Up Locks
If you’re already committed to a color but can’t stop thinking about green or teal hair, don’t fret. Just add a horizontal stripe of mint green hair across your pastel mane and you’ll be able to have your cake and eat it too.
#15: Holographic Hair
Prizmatic hair is yours for the taking! Ask your hairstylist for a three-tiered look that combines silver, blue and green and you’ll have a holographic mane on your hands that’s every bit as beautiful as it sounds.
#16: Jewel-Toned Bob
Shine bright like a diamond, er, emerald. Take a page from your favorite jewel and dye your hair a lovely emerald green shade. Not only is this shade bold, but its deep hue also has regal sophistication that will suit you perfectly.
#17: Light and Dark Combo
Can’t decide between dark green hair, light green and everything in between? Then go for all of the above and try a three-pronged ombré with a yellow bottom layer. This is an unpredictable look that will show people you like to live life on the edge.
#18: Aquamarine Stripes
Marry blue and green perfectly by layering them at the bottom of a platinum blonde bob. The two shades stand out nicely against the stark hair color and really make a statement.
#19: Color Down Under
If you’re not ready for full-blown green, go halfers and throw some color on the bottom half of your head. When your hair is worn completely down, it will expose only peeks of color, but when worn in a half updo, it will give people an eyeful of green.
#20: Peek-A-Boo Green
Cotton candy hair just got a whole lot better. Add some lime green hair to your pink and blue masterpiece and you’ll have a pastel rainbow hairstyle that’s a total dream.
There’s never been a better time to experiment with your hair. By now, you’ve seen the possibilities that life with green hair has to offer, so go ahead and seize the day! Whether you’re rocking lime green hair or jade locks, it’s time you moved on to greener pastures.
