Are you looking for a hair color update? There are lots of rainbow hair color options to choose from. You could try oil-slick hair, rainbow bangs, or even opal-colored hair. However, if you want something different, try a metallic hair color. Gold, silver, and bronze are popular, but you could also try other, less obvious options like rose gold or a metallic version of your favorite crazy color. Some dyes give you a megawatt metallic finish, but many of these looks show that you can recreate a metallic look with the right combination of different traditional hair dyes.
Take a look at different metallic hair colors for inspiration:
1. Soft Metallic Blue
This is a more subtle option, but it is more striking. If you haven’t tried a crazy hair color yet, this is a good place to start.
2. Metallic Pink
We are still determining exactly what colors went into this look. There is obviously some pale pink, gray, and silver, and perhaps a bit of mauve. It doesn’t really matter. The important thing is that it is stunning. If you want more, check out Guy Tang‘s feed. It is packed with metallic hair inspiration.
3. Metallic Navy
There are as many metallic blue colors as there are versions of gold. This navy look is great if you prefer to stick to the darker end of the color spectrum. Plus, this short haircut is fab. Slap a #hairgoals tag on the entire look.
If this was the fall, we might have called this Pumpkin Spice hair. It doesn’t really matter what you call it. Just know that you cannot go wrong with this combination of red and blonde balayage.
5. Metallic Blue
These curls would be flawless no matter what color they were. However, something about this metallic gray-blue look makes them look magical. And can we just admire that braid for a second?
6. Metallic Pearl Gray
This hair color is described as “metallic pearl gray,” but you could also just call it “beautiful.” There are lots of different versions of gray hair, but this warmer version is something you should try out at least once.
7. Metallic Opal
You get two trends in this one dye job. It combines fashionable opal hair with metallics. The blue, purple, and white blonde look great together, but you could also see this turning out amazing with other color combinations.
8. Rose Gold
We love rose gold jewelry, so it is no surprise that we love rose gold hair. This hair color is also a good option for brunettes who do not want to have to bleach their entire heads white blonde first.
9. Silver and Lavender
Part of what makes this hair color look so good is that the silver and lavender are on a black base. Of course, we must remember how the colors blend seamlessly.
10. Metallic Gray With Blue and Neon Green
If a metallic gray hair color isn’t enough for you, try adding some eye-catching blue and neon green streaks a la this dye job.
11. Metallic Rainbow
If you’re an indecisive sort of person, combine everything with this look. You’ve got rainbows, pastels, neons, and metallics. What more could you possibly want?
