Colors for Professional Short Hairstyles.
We understand that a professional job can affect the color choices available. Because there are so many short hairstyles that have a formal fashion sense, it is a great idea to think about mixing color with practicality. The first example is the White Hair Dye that combines an uncommon color with a natural effect for a great finished look. You can either highlight your hair over a dark color like the picture above, or you can make your whole style bright white. You could also combine both ideas and create an ombre effect or dark roots effect.
Mix business and pleasure with a bit of Black Hair Dye for an understated yet stunning look. By adding black to your hair, you can appear professional at work while remaining interesting with some more interesting styles. A good example can be seen in this image. The lack of color creates an opportunity for the wavy curls in this hairstyle to stand out. If you love to experiment with style then this is the perfect choice that will look great whether you’re at work or out with friends.
If you’d prefer something a little more colorful that still falls within the realms of professional then your best option is the Red Hair Dye. A dark red color provides a great autumnal look that isn’t overstated, perfect for work. If you want to try out a lighter red color then perhaps think about copying the style in this image. The small amounts of bright red highlights can really liven up a hairstyle without looking completely unnatural.
Cute Colors for Short Hair
For those who think life is too short to have anything other than exciting hair colors then getting a short hairdo is a perfect way to combine the rarity of color and style. For those who love a watery effect, check out the Blue Hair Dye that will really stand out from the crowd.
