From sunset to galaxy hair, taking cues from the natural world for hair colors is nothing terribly new, but geode hair is a wonderful and stunning way to add some light rainbow shades into your hair.
The great thing about the geode style is that it can be as subtle or as bold as you want it to be, since geodes naturally come in all colors. So you’ll see subtle, darker cool colors to wild teals and oranges.
Like any rainbow fashion color, you’ll need to get a fashion color dye like Manic Panic. The colors will show up best over pre-lightened hair you can get with a home hair bleaching kit.
There are so many stunning ways to wear this type of hairstyle, below are some of the top geode looks for inspiration.
This is the most understated look on the list. It layers tones of purple and deep blue onto the lower lengths of the hair. Depending on how subtle you want the look, you may be able to get away with layering a fashion dye straight over medium to darker brown hair.
Bright, segmented geode:
This look goes for the truest spirit of the geode. It leaves hair a natural shade, and then a swath of hair is colored a bright rainbow shade like blue in a wedge, triangle shape. So it looks like you’ve cracked open the hair to find the bright shade within, just like a geode.
