#10: Smokey Silver
What a fantastic hair color! If you’re not someone who experiments with hair color much – then this may be a little ‘out there’ for you.

#13: Platinum Blonde Ends
Fantastic color choice for those of you who want a change without causing a stir. It’s a delightfully fresh color and it’ll give you a make-over which you’ve been seeking, but it won’t stand out so much that you have to buy 15 hats to hide your hair under, because you can’t bear the attention anymore.
#14: Subtle Blue
If you’re after adding a fun vibe to your locks, but not willing to go for full-head color, then this might be the solution you seek. Go for a few bright highlights in your dark hair, and you’ll achieve some urban vibes – without having to spend hours in a barber’s chair.
#15: Light Silver
For those of you who have been thinking about going blonde but are not into the yellow tones that often come with it – silver hair provides a great alternative.

But if silver hair doesn’t do the trick for you – then this awesome, platinum hair with purple tones will. Have you ever seen a color that’s more striking than this? We definitely haven’t.
#17: Dark Mocha
Colors that stand out immediately aren’t the only way forward. We absolute dig this dark mocha tone for those who are looking to go darker, without becoming the centre of attention.
#18: Light Brown
Simple light brown is also in at the moment – maybe more than ever. It looks so natural that no-one will even question whether your hair has been dyed. Even if they did – none of their business, right?
#19: Yellowy Blonde
Yellow tones do get a bad rep sometimes, with many people using violet shampoos to get rid of them. Hey – that doesn’t mean that everyone hates them! To each their own. We think this color is kinda cool.
