Best Green Hair Color Ideas

Green highlights on a natural-color base, vivid green ombre, or all-over green hair dye? Here, you’ll find inspiration for all the best greens and complementing colors used in hair to create a fresh new hairstyle!




#1: Beautifully Braided Mermaid Hair

Nothing shows off deep blue and green hair colors like an intricately braided mane. Crown your jade mane with six braids that meet somewhere at the back of your head and cascade down in a lovely fishtail plait. You will definitely be turning heads with this mermaid hairstyle!

#2: Pick A Boo Forest Green Color
