#1: Orange Color Melt

For a unique, vivid result, consider dyeing your hair with an orange color(4) melt. I would recommend using a mix of green, yellow, and blue(3) peekaboo highlights. They will create subtle pops of contrasting hues. To achieve the best results, be sure to specify your desired look to your colorist. That way, they can customize the shades for you. To maintain these shades, use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. There are ones specifically designed for colored hair. Also, do regular deep conditioning treatments. If you can, finish each style with a product that has UV protection. Try Paul Mitchell’s Color Protect Locking Spray.

The advantage of this bold choice is the ability to express your individuality and embrace a unique style.

These colors fade quickly, so using a professional color care shampoo will help.

A stunning shade of orange hair like this electric fire is bold and beautiful. If your hair is bleached, it’s always fun to consider changing your color. What I love about this is the deeper orange roots paired with the vibrant orange ends. This creates natural contrast and dimension. If you wear your hair heat styled, it’s important to note a heat protectant is necessary. It will help to preserve the life of your color. I recommend Number 4 High Performance Hair Care Thermal Styling Spray.

Choosing a darker orange color for a curly bob is great for boldness without being too bright. The combo of curl and an intense shade creates an eye-catching volume. For vibrancy, use the L’Oréal Professionnel INOA Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner. It helps keep your color vibrant for longer. Doing deep conditioning treatments help keep your curls soft and bouncy. Try to use Redken Iron Shape 11 thermal protective spray for extra protection. It’s for heat damage prevention against hot tools like curling irons or blow dryers.

#13: Orange Money Piece

A money piece that’s orange may not be your first thought when thinking about a color change. However, the result is a fresh new look that adds a soft enhancement to your blonde hair color. Orange or copper tones can be modified to best suit your style, as well as your skin tone. Ask your stylist about the wide variety of color options available, and try something new!

#14: Dreamy Copperish Orange Long Waves

Copperish orange long waves are to die for if you love vibrant hair color. If you want to maintain this color you will want to invest in the right hair products such as a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Try to only shampoo your hair 1-2 times per week, as shampooing more often than that will greatly increase your color fade. You can expect to avoid swimming in pools, spending time in direct sunlight, and shampooing your hair in hot water.

#15: Orange to Black Reverse Ombre

Don’t confuse this color for your average balayage! I recommend a reverse ombre for any daring client looking for a bold statement color. The best part is when you’re tired of the black it will simply be cut off at your next haircut. This will leave you open to new color options as black can be quite difficult to lift out.

#16: Long Wavy Pastel Orange Hairstyle

For women with long wavy hair, a pastel orange hairstyle makes for the perfect pastel vivid because of all the dimension the hair provides. Keep in mind, pastel colors are very high-maintenance and require lots of upkeep. Not shampooing your hair frequently, avoiding the pool, and using cold water in the shower are crucial if you’re wanting to try this color.
