As far as unnatural hair colors go, which do you think is the sexiest?

Asked by spittingamethyst (246 points ) August 22nd, 2011

I really want to dip dye my hair but can’t decide on a color. I have dark brown hair and brown eyes.

In general, I like iridescent black and purple.

For you, taking into consideration your eye color and current hair color, I’d say a light color, or even a neon color.

If I had to pick one, it would be bright red, but I’m not a fan of unnatural hair colors.

I have brown hair and eyes and I’ve had every color you could imagine. My favorites were fire engine red and a deep turquoise

woodcutter's avatar

Red, not fire engine red but a more exaggerated natural tone. A few color effects thrown in for good measure, yeah.

redfeather's avatar

@woodcutter damn it. Fire engine red was fun!

spittingamethyst's avatar

I’m surprised red is a popular choice. I wasn’t even considering it.

woodcutter's avatar

Are you kidding? Red just screams HOT. Even better if you have the attitude to go with it.

I had a color block in my hair, bleached the hell out of it and dyed it fiery red. I could part it on one side and just have pieces peeking through, or the other and have it really noticeable. It was fun, but red fades the fastest. And you have to wash your hair with cool water

Hmm I was thinking of doing a blue or lilac or pink or even a forest green color. I just hate the idea of choosing a color and having it clash with what I’m wearing.

Blondes may have more fun, but in my experience, redheads are more fun.

Blackberry's avatar

@WestRiverrat Oh yeah…love that pasty, freckled skin lol.

hot pink, with bright orange and blue highlights

Haha I loved jeffree stars hair when it was hot pink and bright Orange.

On a girl… burgundy. The kind that’s so dark it almost looks black, but in the sun it’s clearly a red tone.
On a guy… jet black.
But like @Blackberry, I’m not a fan of unnatural hair colors.

Bright pink. But I’m thinking for a man. Ain’t nothing sexier than a man with bright pink hair.

perspicacious's avatar

I don’t find any unnatural colors attractive or sexy in any way.

WestRiverrat's avatar

@Blackberry Think edible body paint and dot to dot.

TexasDude's avatar

@WestRiverrat been there, done that. Hell yeah.

Purple or maroon.

WestRiverrat's avatar

Multi colored so you look like a peacock.

Unclepepsi's avatar

Black with Blue streaks. But you would look great no matter which color you’d choose. Us Jellies always do.

Red. Easily. It’s like the same sex appeal as putting on bright red lipstick; it has a way of saying “Well, hello there, sailor!”. I personally prefer wildfire and rock ‘n’ roll to vampire and infra red (all Manic Panic) myself, though some of the pinks and purples are nice, too (hot hot pink, new rose, purple haze, red passion) and have more of an Angelina Jolie in Gia feel to them. Really, the main question is if you want to be Angelina Jolie in Gia (sex that’s psycho and rather dangerous, but also totally mindblowing), or Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith (seductress extraordinaire). Blue and green I like more in a “party it up druggie-style” way, less in a “I want to do you right here, right now” kinda way. Orange and yellow are my least favorite colors in all things, so…

As a natural red-head, I’m partial to red, too. I also like the idea of lighter brown hair with jet-black tips.

Aethelflaed's avatar

Damn. Rarebear has some serious thoughts on this topic – he’s been crafting a response for over an hour now.

augustlan's avatar

He probably fell asleep. WAKE UP RB!

A nice plaid.

SavoirFaire's avatar

Dark red, pink, or rainbow.

martianspringtime's avatar

I love pinks and blues.
I just dyed my hair pink after wanting to since I was like 5 and I have no regrets. Looks okay too, if I do say so myself.
For tips, I think any colour pretty much looks nice. Turquoise, purple. Not a fan of green myself though.

Earthgirl's avatar

I love pink and burgundy. Also, cobalt blue tips on black hair.
martianspringitme Wow! How did people react to your new haircolor? You reminded me of one of my favorite fashion editorials featuring pink hair. This goes back to 2006. Enjoy!

I was just commenting today on wigs that my company makes. I had to choose colors and styles. Do you think white hair is going to sell? It seems so popular now. These are inexpensive wigs. Anyone have a wish list?
Savoir Faire Do you really like rainbow or are you just being funny?

SavoirFaire's avatar

@Earthgirl I suppose it was a less serious suggestion, especially given what it would take to maintain it. Rainbow hair can be rather striking on those who can pull it off, though, even if pink and dark red are more practical.

Aethelflaed's avatar

@Earthgirl Awesome! But, practical note: rainbow hair is an insane bitch to keep up. I have a tough enough time redying my roots every 2 weeks. So, just think about the commitment, because I have seen a girl with rainbow hair except for 4 inches of roots, and it did not look so good.

Earthgirl's avatar

Aethelflaied Absolutely! I think a wig might be the better way to do rainbow hair! Coming to a store near you soon…or maybe they already have rainbow wigs. If not they will soon.
