Safe for work

As mentioned earlier, the dip-dye hair trend can be played around with many different ways, including a more subtle combo that won’t land you in hot water with your company’s HR department. Think ashy base with ends dipped in dark blue (that almost looks black), or light brown with coral or purple tips.

Flaming hot

For those who are prefer to stand out, you’ll do well to steer towards hot pinks and fiery reds to dip your hair tips in. The best part? Splashes of red or pink can work with any coloured base, from black to blonde and brown.

Blue crush

Turn heads with waves of blue – just take your pick from periwinkle to turquoise and cobalt, and you’ll feel like you’re under the sea 24/7.

From bright coral to seafoam green, there’s hardly any colour you can’t do to bring on the vividness. Or if you just can’t seem to decide what colour to wear on your mane, there’s always the rainbow dye that you can consider (last pic). Also, how cute is the dip dye top knot featured below!?
