We’re Officially Obsessed With Gemstone Hair Color

It’s official. We’re obsessed with gemstone hair color. From garnet to sapphire and everything in between, we’re totally convinced that just about everyone can (and should) rock a gemstone hair color this season.

We voted, and it was a landslide; these are our top picks for gemstone hair colors:


This vibrant shade of dark green is certainly not for the faint of heart. It takes a bold fashionista to pull off this dark emerald-green hue every day. But we have full confidence that some of you out there are brazen and brilliant enough to make this look shine.


Thinking of going red? Why not try out this sultry shade of radiant ruby-red? Garnet is the hair color equivalent of Dorothy’s slippers; it will transport you to another reality (in which you wake up every day with fierce hair, that is).

Tiger Eye

We love tiger eye highlights so much we devoted an entire article to the trend. A majestic mix of rich brunette tones and buttery caramel highlights, tiger eye hair color is a killer combo of natural hues and gorgeous gemstone realness.


Sapphire hair takes cool tones to the next level. If you’ve ever thought about dying your hair any shade of blue, sapphire might be the one to convince you to jump in the deep end. It’s not as in-your-face as many bright blue shades, so it’s a cinch to pull off any season.

Rose Quartz

One of 2016’s Pantone Colors of the Year, rose quartz hair color takes the cake as our most adored light gemstone hue. It’s as light and airy as a cloud—while still being as rock ‘n’ roll as you’d expect any shade of pink hair to be.

Few things are worse than a dull gemstone. Keep your color and bold and brilliant as the day you step out of the salon with these expert tips and tricks.
