1. HIGHLIGHTED CURLS
If you were blessed with a head full of natural curls, a splash of highlights can elevate your look.
Curly hair is full of volume, texture, and movement. All of these awesome hair qualities are amplified by highlighting the ends of the hair. You can start at the middle of the curly strand, or lower to the ends.
The best part about highlighting curls is that the end result is forgiving and low maintenance. That means that you can highlight your own curls at home.
2. COPPER LOCKS
Copper might have a bad rep at the hair salon, but if you're looking for hair dye ideas in 2022, copper is all the rage.
The pale shade of strawberry tresses gives a "girl next door vibe". It is also easy to do if you have blonde or red hair. The blonde base easily takes copper undertones and red hair needs to be lifted with a blonde highlight.
If you are not sure what color you want, take the hair color quiz to find out what colors are right for you.
3 . ICY WHITE
Icy white is one of the hottest trends in hair dye for men. Every famous soccer player and Reggaeton singer is currently rocking ahead of icy white hair. This is a great option for men with shorter hair because it is so forgiving.
Even when the hair grows out, the darker roots still allow you to slay this look.
This is also just as popular for the ladies. The winter white hair is gorgeous on many skin tones and is perfect if you want to back a bold hair change, such as our money green shade Swamp Queen. Check out our boldest shades below!

If you want to know wow to get the ombre look, all you need is ombre hair dye that is applied from the middle of your hair to the ends. Traditionally, an ombre starts out darker on the roots and lighter on the ends. You want to pick an ombre hair dye that is just a few shades lighter than your current hair color.

Dip-dyed hair is similar to ombre but uses more vivid and vibrant colors. Instead of going for natural-toned colors, you can add a splash of bold color, our cutest orange Cutie!
You can dip-dye your hair in a variety of ways. For shorter hair, you can dip the tips of your hair and leave the underlayer your natural color. This gives a cool contrast between a natural tone and bold neon perhaps.
You can also dip the tips of your long strands or even just areas of your hair like your bangs. This type of hair dyeing technique requires dip dye hair color, available in a variety of funky colors.
6. MONEY PIECE
A money piece is meant to draw focus to both your hair and your face. The pop of color should frame your face and keep you looking like a million bucks!
