Bright blues, radical reds and the perfect deep purple: They’re all shades we’re craving for our tresses this fall. That’s why we’ve assembled a gallery of boldly colored dyed hair as inspiration. From unnatural oranges to the starkest white, we’ve got the shades you crave.
One word of warning: In order to get any of the colors in this gallery, you’ll likely have to bleach your hair first, which can cause a great deal of damage and breakage to hair.
And tell us: If work and school didn’t care, what shade would you dye your hair?
I’m currently in the throes of growing my hair out, which requires patience, precision and a will of steel. It’s all I can do to not chop it all off into a pixie cut again, but then I remember that my ultimate goal is to have long, flowing hair, so I can do fun stuff to it. Fun stuff like dye it multiple pastel shades or a bright, bold color. Culling through these pretty pastel-flavored hair shots makes me practically itchy with glee. So while I sweat out the next year of hair growing to get my long waves back, I’ll be keeping these tacked up to my inspiration board.
Tell us: What’s the craziest color you’ve ever dyed your hair?

And if you’re still on the fence about it, we’ve got 15 real girls with real curls and waves to show you just how cool curls can be.

Getting the perfect bang can be tricky. You’ve got to consider not only your hair texture, but also the shape of your face and your general styling routine.
