The color turquoise is often associated with calmness, femininity, and creativity, all of which are embodied in turquoise hair. Whether you’re looking for a pastel shade or a bright hue, look no further than these 20 tried and true styles.

Turquoise Hair Color Ideas

Vary the saturation of turquoise to get a very light and soft bluish green hue or a more pronounced turquoise that tends to teal. You can certainly get any shade in between and pair your customized turquoise with silver, brown, blonde or any pastel color.

1. Mermaid Pixie Cut

This pixie is beautiful and fashionable – simply adorable in its color, silhouette and texture! To add height to your pixie cut, try blow drying with a round brush.

2. Silver-Blue Fox

Turquoise hair dye isn’t like other hair dyes. It can be tricky and it takes time to achieve the result you want, so, be patient and be prepared to spend a few days – or hair appointments – working towards the right shade. For a vivid yet soft look, consider the silver to glass-like blue transition.

3. Dark Metal and Seafoam Hairstyle

Two sections are twisted from both sides creating an effortless half-down style. Blending the dark metal shade into more saturated teals creates a dark, sultry hair color. Best matched with black, white, or basic hues.

4. Cotton Candy Blends

Starting with a basic blonde shade, this combination of purple and turquoise creates a cotton candy look that’s fearlessly bold, bright, and feminine. Want to make it even more dynamic? Consider adding a third color like bubblegum pink.

6. Braided Pastel Rainbow Style

This isn’t a do-it-yourself style, but it’s extremely desirous and show-stopping. Starting with a pastel turquoise, you can add pink, orange, red, purple, even green for a rainbow-colored look. With a french braid, you can create an artistic masterpiece, as each strand is beautiful and different than the next one.

7. Chopped Rombre

This rainbow ombre – or rombre – was achieved with a balayage technique. Notice the red and yellow colors perfectly matched to the short layered strands and finished surprisingly with awesome shades of turquoise and teal.

Turquoise hair doesn’t have to be bright. You can tone it down with a mix of pastel colors including light greens, purples, and pinks. For a princess-like hairstyle, add a variety of braids and extensions to complete your look.

12. Black and Blue

The black and turquoise are separated with a high wrap-around ponytail. When let down, the colors would create a drastic – yet beautiful – ombre look. This style looks best with frosty blue eyes and a thick black cat eye. You may use hair extensions, if you don`t want to change your hair color so radically.
