St. Patrick’s Day: The Best Hair Dyes for Green Hair

St. Patrick’s Day gives everyone the chance to capitalize on the luck of the Irish. Whether or not you believe in leprechauns, green has recently become a go-to hue in hair coloring. Celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Lizzo, and Billie Eilish have all embraced the color, and you might be wondering about joining in on the fun.

If you are thinking about dying your hair green for St. Patrick’s Day, you should know that getting the color right may require some research. But with patience, care, and the right hair dye, you can be ready to make a powerful statement. For best results, work with one of our colorists to achieve the optimal shade and keep your hair healthy.

Can I Dye My Hair Green without Bleaching It?

If you are looking for a subtle shade of green, you can achieve this without bleaching, even if your hair is dark brown or black. However, pre-lightening dark hair will be necessary if you want a more dramatic result.

Those with blonde or lighter hair might already have a suitable base for green. However, you might still need to lighten if you want to achieve a pastel or neon green result.

The Best Green Hair Dyes

Once you have decided which shade of green you would like, your next challenge is to choose which hair dye you should use. The following options are among the best on the market.

L’Oréal Paris Colorista Teal Semi-Permanent Dye

This range offers excellent semi-permanent dyes for those experimenting with green locks for the first time. The instructions and application are straightforward. While this formulation is for brunette hair, you will need to bleach first to achieve the color displayed on the package. Colorista offers a bleach kit you can use for this purpose.

Manic Panic Electric Lizard

The Manic Panic brand offers the best range of alternative hair colors on the market. As you can probably tell from the name, their Electric Lizard hair dye will give your hair a bright, neon-green look. As an added bonus, it will even make your hair glow under a blacklight. Results are vivid and long-lasting. You should lighten your hair to the lightest level before use for the best results.

Punky Alpine Green Semi-Permanent Conditioning Hair Color

Punky Alpine offers an affordable option that can give your hair a vibrant green pigment without pre-bleaching. Users highly rate this vegan brand for its wonderful smell. However, the color may transfer to your pillow for the first couple of nights, so use caution.
Adore Semi-Permanent Hair Dye, Green Apple

Adore offers another product on the budget end of the scale, resulting in a pastel-like green color that is excellent for warmer skin tones. The application is trickier than the other options but offers excellent coverage. This dye works best for bleached, lightened, or blonde hair.

Crazy Color Toxic UV, Semi-Permanent

This dye is also formulated for bleached hair and will not work well for darker base colors. However, the color is probably the brightest on this list. Because it is a UV color, it also glows under black light.

La Riche Directions Hair Dye Color Semi Permanent – Alpine Green

Because it is easy to remove, this hair dye is a solid option for anyone who wants to experiment with green. While it works decently well on dark hair, achieving the alpine green pop of color will require pre-lightening. It comes in gel form, which contributes to its ease of use.
