If, prior to now, you’ve treaded within the confines of blacks and browns, going bold all of a sudden may seem out-of-place and perhaps, uncomfortable. Therefore, it’s advisable to begin with “easier” colors like red and ginger. Plus, they are universally appealing as they complement a plethora of skin tones. Also consider using semi-permanent hair dye as opposed to permanent hair colors when starting out. This allows for easy reversal should you not fall in love with the outcome.

Still, within these “easier” colors, there are also various shades available and you can select based on your preference. For instance, red variations like currant and cherry are more suited for a girl who decides to tread subtle. On the other hand, red shades like candy and rose are perfect for the drama queen. Simply put, your phobia for bright colors is no excuse not to have some colorful hair fun this 2022. Having said that, let’s jump into five popular hair colors for Black women in 2022.

Check out the bold hair colors black women are rocking for spring / summer 2022…

#1. Two-toned hair

A bold girl like yourself + two-tone colored hair = hairgasm! For maximum effect, allow for an obvious contrast. Although black roots and blonde ends are a popular choice, you can take a different route for maximum impact. For instance, mix orange with platinum or green with black for an unexpected yet irresistible look.

#4. Lime

Surely, this is one color for the bold of heart — but I thought you were already that. This season, go daring in shades of lime and cause a sensation everywhere you go. If you’re considering this citrusy shade but think it’s too strong, we have a tip on how to tone it down: blend with subtle. Simply put, layer with a few sections of black or brown tones. The result is a juxtaposition of drama and calm enough to pique any interest for the right reasons. It’s no surprise that lime is one of the hot hair colors of 2022.
