Because peacock hair colors are styled after peacocks—duh—the traditional shades usually include plenty of blue, green, and purple, perhaps with a bit of yellow to suggest gold. However, pink, teal, and turquoise also have their place.
Some people prefer a more feminine interpretation of the peacock trend and thus skip out on using green or midnight blue. Others embrace the beauty of these majestic birds that are so proud of their plumage. Which combination strikes your fancy?
Best Peacock Hair Color Ideas
What’s your favorite peacock hair color? Is it a deep, decadent purple or an electric blue? Do you prefer the dazzling green streaks in peacock feathers or the occasional gold flashes? It doesn’t matter, sweetheart—you can strut your peacock hair in any color combination. It all comes down to what makes you feel just as regal and radiant.
1. Peacock Feather on Long Hair
Let’s begin with the most unique hairstyle of them all! Why settle with experimenting with peacock hair colors when you can place an enchanting peacock feather pattern on your beautiful platinum blonde hair? This unique idea will surely make heads turn!
2. Side Swept Hair
If you think pixie haircuts couldn’t be any edgier, wait til you try dyeing it with the peacock’s deep and vivid colors. Admit it, the deep greens, vivid violets, and eye-catching blues and browns certainly took this already-edgy cut to a whole new level, don’t you agree?
3. Blues and Violets on Mullet + Microbangs
And since we’re already on the topic of edgy hairstyles, we just need to include this fashion-forward mullet hairstyle with micro bangs and the attention-grabbing colors of the peacock. The interesting colors add more fun to this already playful look.
4. Peacock Meets Platinum
Getting bored with your platinum blonde locks? Well, it’s about time that we add pizzaz to it and the easiest and trendiest way to do that is by playing with the various peacock shades– turquoise, green, and purple. This beautiful balayage is the perfect meeting place between these two, right?
5. Colored Dreadlocks
Dreadlocks are a great way to protect your hair, but did you know that you can also find a way to make this protective hairstyle look trendier and more chic? Yes, you can do that by adding these striking blue, green, and violet shades.
6. Short Mohawk
Mohawks and short hairstyles are already eye-catching in themselves, but with a pop of color, you can make them look even more remarkable.
The addition of these vivid shades on the mohawk will not just make your short hair look more enticing but also draws the eyes upwards, making your face look slimmer.
7. Glowing Green
Green is one of the most prominent peacock hair colors. You can rock the trend without any green, but you won’t look precisely like a peacock. The trick is to make sure the verdant streaks stand out, even if you only ask for a few highlights in a lush lime hue.
8. Teal and Purple
Although green is a hallmark, you don’t necessarily need it. Color combinations similar to this one are a fashion-forward take on the peacock ‘do. It’s softer and more feminine, but it’s still spot-on. You can’t deny that the mix of purple, teal, and blue is a smash.
9. Long Blue Locks
Make an electric blue the signature hue of your peacock hair. Blue takes center stage here, but that just makes the rich green, purple, and raspberry highlights catch the eye. Seriously, how much do you love that shade of green?
10. Peacock on Black
Believe it or not, peacock hair colors can be subtle. You don’t have to strut around like a peacock. Start with a dark base, preferably black, then ask the stylist for subtle overlay highlights of dark green and blue.
11. Peacock Undercut
If you want to be known as a trendsetter, deviate from the norm. Take the peacock trend and turn it on its ear—or simply turn it upside down, as you see here. The feathers shaved into the undercut look exactly like peacock feathers, particularly with that gorgeous dye job.

12. Peacock Meets Mermaid
The colors here are paler and lighter. They’re not pastels, but they’re not dark, dramatic jewel tones, either. The result is a fantastical profusion of beautifully colored locks that make it seem like a mermaid had a baby with a peacock. Weird imagery, sure, but look at the hair!
13. Peacock Ombre
As you can see, there are numerous ways to incorporate peacock hair colors into your hairstyle. The ombre effect is one of the most eye-popping ways. The contrast of the lime green with vibrant shades of turquoise, teal, and blue is irresistible, especially if you show it off with a hairdo like this.
All right, this hairstyle is fire. The colors are beautifully blended, plus the vivid green is nearly hidden. It’s a surprise that peeks out from beneath the top layers, throwing off unexpected pops of color.
15. The Big Three
Purple, blue, and green are the three traditional peacock hair colors, but we’ve never seen them combined like this before. The top layer is dark violet, blue holds down the middle, and the ends are bejeweled emerald. This is utter perfection.
16. At the Top
Who says you have to go all-out peacock? Here, the roots are a stunning blue-green, which fades into green and nearly yellow. The rest of the hair remains natural. What do you think?
