Bold hair color is becoming a popular choice for women of all ages, backgrounds, and professions. In most industries, it’s an accepted form of self-expression. For those who are working from home, it’s a fun way to add color, literally, to an otherwise regular, mundane daily routine. The nice part about wild hair hues is that it goes with everything, different personalities included. Here are hair color ideas for you to try. 

For the Professional Creative

Purple Reign: actress Maisie Williams wears pastel purple hair on the red carpet.

When Game of Thrones ended, it was as if actress Maisie Williams’ creative spirit was set free — not that it wasn’t evident in the series. She was the perfect Arya Stark, but after she graduated from the role, we finally saw her true colors, so to speak. Maisie has made many bold hairstyles and color choices since, and this pastel purple one is our favorite.

Most creative industries allow their employees to color their hair. This one is a refreshing take on the bold hair color trend and is oddly subtle. As you can see from the red-carpet photo, it also cleans up nicely. Give it a try!

For the Girl-Next-Door

If there’s a hair color for a sweet young lady who’s ready to take on the world, it’s this soft, creamy pink like the one sported by actress Elle Fanning. A coming-of-age shade, it’s been the gateway hue towards bolder choices for many celebrities, including Kaia Gerber, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid. It’s so wearable and easy on the eyes that it’s almost neutral. If you’re new to color and don’t want something too wild, this pastel shade is an easy way to acquaint yourself with colored hair. 

For the Queen Bee

Siren Call: singer Rihanna wears a sultry, fiery red shade fit for a superstar.

A red that’s not for the faint of heart, this fire engine hue is suited for those who love commanding attention and have the attitude to match. Singer Rihanna has sported various shades of red hair throughout her career. It has even been immortalized in several magazine covers. Natural red hair only occurs in 2% of the global population, but thankfully, you can achieve red locks with the help of a professional stylist. If you want to make a splash (the Little Mermaid had red hair, too!), try this hot look for a change.

For the Trendsetter

Make it Rainbow: If you’re a trendsetter like model Irene Kim, fun rainbow-colored hair might be for you!

A Fashion Week mainstay on and off the runway, South Korean model Irene Kim loves to change her look with hair color — lots of it. A style chameleon, Kim has colored her hair every shade of the rainbow, sometimes several of them at once. In this photo, she completes her punk-rock look with pink, purple, and blue strands — randomly applied, it seems! It all adds to the vibe, and we’re here for it. If you're looking for hair color ideas, try this look if you love being different. This bold choice will make you stand out. 

Care for Your Colored Hair

You've spent lots of time and money to achieve your bold hair color look. It only makes sense to take care of it so that it lasts longer and stays healthy. Use a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for color-treated hair. TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo and TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Conditioner will help your vibrant hair stay radiant and healthy with Anti-Fade technology. It locks color in deep within the cuticles to protect color and uses jojoba oil to boost shine.

Once a week, use VitaKeratin Deep Repair Hair Mask, which nourishes hair and repairs damage in chemically treated hair with keratin, vitamin E, and argan oil.
