Pastel hair colors, from lilac and pink to mint and silvery blue, have dominated Instagram feeds for a while now and show no signs of slowing down. But it doesn’t take much scrolling to see that the It color of the moment is actually one of the most versatile and universally flattering shades: peach.
Whether you want a subtle, apricot glow or a more vibrant, attention-grabbing shade, here are all the deets on this hot hair trend and how to get peach hair at home.
The Trend Anyone Can Try
The biggest reason peach hair is the juiciest trend right now? The sweet shade compliments almost every hair type and skin tone. It’s a fresh, warm update to the ever-popular rose gold that works whether you have a cool, warm, or neutral skin tone. Peach hair has the same fun vibe as pink, but adding orange tones makes it a more universally flattering hue.
The warmth of peach can give you an overall glow, whether you opt for a bright, nearly neon ginger shade or a more subtle sorbet hue. This versatility is making peach one of the season’s most-requested colors.
Getting the Look
Peach hair dye is created by adding pink and orange to a gold base, so the lighter your hair is before coloring, the more vibrant the results will be.
If you have highlights or balayage that are growing out, cover lighter strands with peach hair dye for a subtle glow-up. Our Unicorn Hair pastel tint in Sushi gives your pre-lightened tresses a wash of color—imagine the prettiest watercolor effect.
If you’re ready for a bigger impact, Unicorn Hair Full coverage in Neon Peach is vibrant and long-lasting. This saturated peach hair dye is best for platinum or light blonde strands, so use our Unicorn Bleach Party to lift your base color up to eight levels to get the brightest shade possible.
Keep Your Hair Looking Peachy Keen
Peach hair is so popular in part because the peach pigments fade and wash out and leave behind some of the gold base for a warm, shimmery look. But when you want that original shade to last, there are a few tips that will keep your locks looking sweet:
- Plan for maintenance: Regular touch-ups (every 3–4 weeks) will refresh the color
- Don’t overwash: Wash your hair as infrequently as possible using color-safe products. Unicorn Hair Color Shampoo and Conditioner deposit color onto strands and revitalize your look
- Limit heat styling: Use a heat-protectant to reduce damage and try to use the lowest temperature setting possible
How to Rock Your Peach Hair
Peach is one of the most wearable shades, whether you want it pastel or vibrant. An all-over wash courtesy of our best-selling Unicorn Hair Tint is perfect when you want a soft take on the trend. Lift your blonde to platinum with our bleach kit, or let your naturally light hair color deepen the shade slightly.
Want something more vibrant and saturated? Try an ombre or dip-dye style with our full-coverage hair dye. The intensity of the peach hair color transitions beautifully from deep auburn on darker roots to bright, pinky-orange on pre-bleached tips.
An underlayer of peach adds depth and dimension to your hair and is a fun surprise when you’re styling a braid, ponytail, or bun. Keep things simple but playful with a face-framing money piece.
No matter your length and style, you can pull off this gorgeous trend and make it your own. Have fun creating your dream look and share it online—we can’t wait to see what you create!
