15 Incredible Examples of Magenta Hair Color

Best magenta hair colors

A magenta hair color is a combination of pink, red and purple shades blended together to create a dark and vivid pink hue. Magentas produce a very eye-catching fashion hair color. Fashion-forward gals who are daring and unafraid of attention (as well as a commitment!) are excellent for this choice.

Dark, medium or fair – all complexions have a place in the spectrum of magenta. This wine-tinged hue is a sure showstopper as fabulously proven by A-listers Georgia May Jagger and Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall!

Top consideration when trying a jewel-toned hue is that your strands need to be pre-lightened prior to coloring for a more vibrant result. This means you need the following – a pro hair colorist, color-safe and heat-protectant products, and lots of patience and TLC for your hair! Prepare for lots of treatments and hair dye to get that perfect magenta hair color.

Donned by straight, wavy, or curly hair, this popping hue is unstoppable on its way to the top of the most popular hair colors for the season! Blonding specialist Danielle Nicole demonstrates how Insta-famous her clients have become after joining the magenta trend!

How would you describe this?

This hair color is a brown and magenta balayage.

What’s your best advice?

High fashion colors (bright, bold shades) require more maintenance for sure. Bright colors like this require the hair to be lightened to achieve this look. So if having your hair bleached is something you’re not looking to do, then a magenta may not be for you. High fashion colors are meant to fade so you will need to get your color refreshed every 4-6 weeks.

Also, kiss warm showers good bye. It’s recommended to shampoo your hair with cold water when rocking these bold shades. Any type of heat will speed up the fading process weather it’s from the temperature of your water or a curling iron.

How would you describe this?

This hair color is a bright magenta with violet roots colormelt technique. If you want a vivid color rinse the hair with a magenta celeb viral shampoo.

What’s your best advice?

If you want a vivid color you should always used the correct products. For example, celeb viral shampoo or conditioner. Maintain your color because vibrant vivids washout to pastel colors. Your hair type is important if you have oily hair you need dry shampoo or wash your hair more often. By doing that, the color rises faster, so that is when a shampoo with additive color comes in handy. If you have dry hair you need more of a moisturizer conditioner.
