dancing flame hair color

From galaxy hair to oil slick hair, people have been using beautiful pictures to inspire hair colors all over Pinterest. One of the latest ideas is fire hair, which of course, is inspired by photos of fire. The most common hair colors are bright reds, flaming oranges and hot yellows. Some looks even combine other flame colors, like blue.

If you want the fire hair look, it’s statement color business as usual. Bleach out hair to the lightest blonde, if it’s not already there, and then apply your statement colors like Manic Panic, Directions or Special Effects. There’s a ton of color melting going on with this look, so you may want to head to a salon if you’re at all concerned that you’ll mess it up.

Below are several ways to wear this look, ranging from the boldest neon looks to the most subtle flame tips. This girl is on fire!

Fire hair styles

Multicolored Flame

Some fire hair images you’ll see online will incorporate tones of blue, pink and purple, in addition to the reds and oranges you normally see. So, some flame hair starts with a hot pink base, leads into purple and blue layers and then ends in traditional flame red and orange.

Fiery-Tone Hair

A more traditional look is to have a color melt going on, starting with orange-red and leading into bright yellow ends.

Fire Ombre

A more muted look is to have bright oranges and yellows in the lengths of the hair. This fire hair is really cool (see what I did there?) with very dark hair at the top, as it looks like the flames are leaping out of nowhere. It’s a great look for wearing in a ponytail, as it makes it look like there’s just flame in the back of the head.

Blue Flame

Again, if the image of the flame you’re looking at is more creative, you might start with blue and purple at the top, which leads into pink, red, orange and yellow highlighted ends.

Neon Flame

For the boldest look, find neon shades in the fashion dyes, like the brightest reds, neon oranges and highlighter yellows. A bright color melt from red to orange to yellow is stunning.

Flame Color Melt

Like the look above, this features starting with a bright pillar box red, going into an orange and ending in yellow tips. What makes it distinctive is, it starts a little further down and leaves some generous dark roots so that, again, it looks like the flame leaps out of nowhere.

Flame Tips

Another more subtle look is to have bright yellow blonde hair with fiery red tips.

Superhero Hair

When in doubt, find one of those redheaded superheroes, like X-Men’s Phoenix, and mimic their hair. A red combined with orange highlights is always pretty.
