Guys With Colored Hair to Get Inspired

Mermaid hair, unicorn hair, dragon hair, oil slick hair — all these trends work as men’s hair colors, too.

Whatever you decide, it’ll be an eye-catching, statement-making conversation starter.

Thanks to gents like Niall Horan, purple is more widely recognized as a perfectly acceptable men’s hair color. You know why? Because colors are colors and they know no gender. Your masculinity isn’t tied to a hair color, guys. If you look good in purple, then own it.

Rose gold is the signature millennial color, with variations of pale pink being perfectly acceptable substitutes. Real men wear pink because it’s flattering to a whole spectrum of skin tones and colors. You can get in on the rose gold train, by the way, if you ask the colorist to throw in some subtle coral highlights.

 

5. Sun-Streaked

Once upon a time, white blonde was the biggest trend in men’s hair color—in the form of frosted tips. That look isn’t coming back, thankfully. However, guys should feel free to help themselves to a few thoughtfully placed highlights. Look at how they brighten the hair and skin.
