Whether you have been dared to go funky, or just want to be rebellious, there is no better way to do it than getting your hair colored in a funky shade. In any case, the time has passed for simple styles with usual colors. In this area, succumb to the latest trends that are now doing the rounds. Just getting funky hairstyles are not enough. Add to it a dash of a funky color, and you can transform your whole look!

When you decide to go ahead with your plan, keep in mind that coloring all the hair in a funky way may not suit everyone. Rather, opt to color parts of the hair, in the form of streaks, a patch, chunky highlights or just use a combination of two or more shades. Also remember, these colors look much better when applied on cool styles, such as punk or emo hairstyles. Here are some ideas for you based on the natural color of your hair.

As a brunette, choose from shades of electric blue, bright or deep purple, dark green, bright red, and shocking pink.
  • You may choose to get a combination of highlights, with the blue and purple. You can even combine the green to add more funk.
  • To use pink and red, just have the tips of your hair dyed in those shades. If you have a layered style, ensure you get the color on the tips of all the layers.
  • One of the best ways to apply these dyes for short hair, such as the bob, is to have only your bangs colored. A darker shade of pink would be perfect for dark brown hair.
  • Another great idea for short hair is to have patches highlighted in blond, and streaked with red. That is just plain deadly!
  • Try a two tone variation, in a combination of pink and orange, pink and blue, blue and red, or purple and green.
Such colors show more on blond hair because it is lighter. That however, shouldn't deter you from trying out any of these options. In fact, you have a whole new palette of combinations to choose from.
  • One option that would look perfect on blond hair, is lime green. Since this color is too bright, it is ideal to have it as highlights, along with light blue streaks. Combined with naturally blond hair, the funk cannot go unnoticed.
  • The above mentioned combinations for brunettes are great even for blonds. Applied overall, or just in a chunk on the bangs, these colors show perfectly on blonds.
  • An extremely funky idea for long, blond hair is to have the top half length in a shocking pink, and the lower half in a shade that is close to white!
  • Streaks in varied shades of purple and pink are great for blond hair. Stick to the lighter shades and avoid the deeper shades. This combination looks just perfect on blonds, preferably on long hairstyles.
These shades work perfectly for men too, and the choice of color only depends on the style that you have opted for.

Whatever the reason for you to choose from these funky colors, just do so keeping your haircut, your skin tone, and your natural color in mind. Remember, blond hair absorbs color more easily than brunette hair. As mentioned before, this should not deter you from choosing from these colors. If you've already decided to go for it, don't look back. Coloring your hair in a funky shade is an experience of a lifetime, and something you must try at least once!
