Have you heard of the underlayer hair color trend? It consists of hair colors placed at the inner sections of your hair. It’s quirky, and it adds character to your look. With an undercolor, you get to wear your natural hair color (or any color for that matter) on the outer sections of your hair. But once you tie your hair in a half updo or when the wind blows through your hair, a hidden hue gets revealed. This will surely spark “oohs” and “aahs” among your friends and be a conversation starter.
If you want to try an underlayer hair color, here are some ideas. Check them out.
Our Favorite Underlayer Hair Color Pegs
1. Purple Underlayer Hair Color
Dye the outer sections of your hair a dusty shade of purple, then wear a vibrant one underneath. Now, your look is both edgy and quirky, and your hair is ready when you’re in the mood for either one.
Editor’s tip: Coloring and bleaching your hair can extremely damage your strands. Use Dove Intense Repair Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It’s formulated with Keratin Tri-Silk Serum, a combination of keratin, fiber actives, and serum ingredients that instant repair hair damage, deeply nourish and protect, and leave your hair beautiful. This shampoo’s Keratin Repair Actives also repair damaged hair from its core to its surface.
2. Green Underlayer Streaks
Leave your naturally dark hair untouched, but take two small sections of hair underneath and dye them lime green. The striking contrast gives your look character. Getting underlayer streaks is also a clever way to try out a new hair color in small doses.
3. Hidden Unicorn
Got unicorn hair but don’t want to wear it 24/7? Rock it as an undercolor. Dye the outer sections of your hair a plain simple color like blonde, then surprise everyone with a playful color combo when you sweep a portion of your hair up! On days when you feel like showing off your unicorn ‘do, scrunch your hair to let the whimsical hues show.
Editor’s tip: Keep your blonde and bleached hair from turning brassy by using TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo. Its purple formula neutralizes brassy tones so you can enjoy your bleached hair color for longer. It also has jojoba oil for moisture and shine.
To get the best results, pair TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo with TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Conditioner.
4. Rainbow Layers
Showcase the dimensions of your layered hair by coloring each layer a rainbow hue. You can put your favorite color on the outermost layer, so it dominates your look. Then, let the other hues peek through.
5. Two-Toned Look
Pick two colors that complement each other, like dark green and magenta, and combine them in your new look. Let them give your hair an artsy, edgy vibe and make you stand out.
