Inside: The cutest hair color ideas for teenage girls for self-expression.
Dying your hair is one of the most fun and drastic ways you can update your look. With all of the colors and styles out there, choosing your own is one of the most powerful ways to express yourself with your appearance.
This is even more real for teenagers.
When you are a teen, you have very little say in what you can do with your body. Tattoos are a no-go, piercings are iffy, but hair dye… now hair dye is very accessible. It’s not permanent like the others, and it gives you room to experiment with what you like.
Being a teenager is all about figuring out who you are, what likes and dislikes are, and you want to present yourself to the world. Hair dye is a wonderful way to do this! There are SO MANY different ways you can go about this. Bold color or simple? Your whole head or just highlights? Lot’s to consider here. But do not worry, I have created the best list to get you clear on what style you want to start with. Notice I said start…because you’ll undoubtedly have many others.
If you have stricter parents and don’t know if you will be allowed to dye your hair…I also have some tips for you. Let’s get into those first.

What to do if you’re not allowed to dye your hair?
Well, first of all, to ensure that this is the case you need to ask your parents. Make it clear to them that this is something you are passionate about and maybe even show them some of the hair goals that you would be getting done if they let you.
If after this the answer is still no, that’s okay. There are so many other ways to tint your hair that are more temporary. You still need to ask your parents about these of course but they are more likely to say yes to temporary hair color ideas for teenager girls rather than a long-term changes involving permanent salon dye.
Temporary Hair Dyes
There are so many simple ways that you can temporarily dye your hair, some of them you can even DIY! With these, the dye will last a few days or at max, a few weeks so you can try out the styles you were going for without the commitment.
It’s a win-win for you and your parents! Take a look at the ways you can achieve this.
- Kool-Aid – I know this one sounds odd, but if you have lighter hair then this is for you. Just brew some extra strong Kool-Aide and then apply it to your hair. Let it sit for a while and then wash it out. Repeat until you get your desired color.
- Temporary Dyes – They actually make some pretty awesome temporary dyes that you can buy on the internet. Look around for the one that sounds like the best fit for you.
- Dye Sprays – These ones have some drawbacks but also some serious pros. They may leave some funny texture, but overall these have the most pigment of any option. You simply spray them on and then wash them off when you are finished.
Okay now that we have that covered, let’s just into some of the cutest dyed hair inspiration I could find. These examples range from simple and muted to bold and untamable so there is something here for everyone. Take a look.
Cute Teenage Hair Colors
For this first list, I wanted to simply include some of the hair colors that you could choose. Most of these are solid, so you can get a good look at how the color will look on you if you choose to get it.

Overall though, you are young and you have time to grow it back.
Just make sure to add some hair masks into your beauty routine and you should be okay! What are you waiting for? Take a look!
