The hair dye pallet hasn’t changed for so long, that in an enormous explosion of rainbow ranged hair dyes is as amazing as it is overwhelming. From just having to choose blond, brunette, brown, or ginger, now we can have all the colors of the rainbow, at some times all at the same time. Some hair colors trending today were even considered hair disasters in the past. Case in point, the orange hair.

The most common way for a home-dyed blonde hair is with hydrogen peroxide. However, when you use too much of it or maybe have red hair pigments you didn’t know you have, you just might end up with a surprising shade of orange instead of the desired blonde. Names like “carrot-top” probably have ensued. Those hair raising hair color mistakes are now a vibrant head-turning hair trend that more and more women are willing to try out.

In the hands of capable hairstylists, you don’t have to worry about being mocked for your bright orange color. Of course, as with all colors, there are plenty of orange shades and combinations that will appeal to all willing to try this bold look.

Let’s see some of the orange shades that might end up being your next hairstyle.
