From neon to deep emerald, green hair color has made its debut and is rapidly becoming one of 2019’s hottest trends. While a lime-like color may seem risky, the bold tint is even attracting a number of celebrity style icons.

Couple the variety of green shades out there with all of the style inspiration around you, and green can be your switch from ash blonde hair to the newest statement color of the year! Curious if green hair color might be right for you? Read on to learn about the green hair trend, how to take care of green hair, and some of our favorite looks to try.

What is green hair color?

With a lively color like green, it is essential to lift your hair to a light base color for a vibrant final result. The darker the green, the less bleach your stylist will need to use. Depending on how light or dark you plan to go, part of your initial consultation will include a discussion on how much bleach is going to be utilized prior to adding the green dye. Although bleach will always damage your hair, your stylist will work with you to leave your hair looking and feeling healthy after the main coloring event.

How do you care for green hair color?

To help minimize untimely fading of the gorgeous green you’ve achieved, use a sulfate-free formula for color-treated hair like Shu Uemura Art of Hair Color Lustre Shampoo and Conditioner. For extra vibrant shades like neon, try Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo and Conditioner, specially formulated for high maintenance colors. On the other hand, if you aim to protect your hair’s tone while addressing dryness, Pureology’s Hydrate Sheer Shampoo preserves color while moisturizing dry, damaged strands.

After working with your stylist to counteract the potentially damaging effects of bleaching your hair, help keep your hair sleek and shiny by adding a hair mask and leave-in conditioner to your routine. L’Oréal Professionnel’s Absolut Repair Gold Masque is a lightweight formula with gold quinoa and protein that can help maintain your hair’s healthy gleam. Pair it with the Absolut Repair 10-In-1 Perfecting Multipurpose Spray for the reparative duo of your dreams. Confused about what products are best for preserving your color? You can always ask your stylist for a personalized hair care routine. Plan to return to the salon every few weeks for touch-ups—no faded hair color or visible roots here.

Who should try green hair color?

With so many available green shades, green hair color is perfect for a wide range of skin tones. Hues with a white blonde base (such as mint or seafoam green) work best with lighter skin tones, while colors with darker undertones (like emerald green) flatter medium and dark skin.

Considering all of the choices, it may be tough to pin down one catch-all answer for which hue works the best for all skin tones, hair lengths, and cuts. Here’s some style inspiration for your latest color obsession:

Best Green Hair Color Ideas To Try Now

Green Pixie

Short-haired girls can flaunt their green hair too! A lengthy pixie cut can be a great way to keep hair care as simple as possible while still sporting a jewel-toned look.

Emerald Balayage

A lower-maintenance option for lengthier hair, a vibrant balayage still offers a unique twist to your long waves.

Dreamy Braids

Show off your eye-catching color with your favorite braiding style! Let silvery undertones shine in an artistic, mother nature-inspired braid.

Neon Green

As flexible as green hair color is, neon has proven to be its most versatile shade. Suitable for all skin tones, neon green is a statement all by itself, keeping your hair up to date with the latest color trend of 2019.

Beachy Lob

Take the classic summer style to the next level with a seafoam green tint!

Princess Twist Ponytail

If you choose to go with more than one shade of green, a princess twist ponytail can showcase every unique pigment in your strands.
