Peacock Hair Color Ideas
Summer 2019 is going to be the summer of color. One of the big hair color trends is going to be peacock hair and yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. All the beautiful colors of a peacock feather – purple, blue, teal, and green – are combined to create such an eye-catching look, whether you go for all over color or some subtle highlights. You can choose vibrant peacock colors, something a little darker, combine the colors with your natural tone, or try pastel shades…there really is so much scope for experimentation. So, why not get inspired by all of our favorite peacock hair color looks.
1Dark Peacock Hair
The deep violet and dark blue base tones of this peacock hair are absolutely stunning. They provide the perfect contrast for those chunky slices of vibrant lime green. We love the darker more moody take on the peacock hair color trend.
2Super Long Peacock Ombre
How amazing is this peacock ombre. It is such an interesting take on the trend by graduating from a rich purple shade at the roots, through to a cyan blue, and to a lime green at the tips. It looks so impactful, with each of the colors really standing out.
3Colorful Peacock Pixie
Contemporary and cool, this colorful pixie is bursting with gorgeous peacock tones. The seemingly random application of all the different shades of blue, purple, and green has given the hair real vibrancy, as well as enhancing the great texture and movement of the cut. Exceptional!
4Bold Peacock Hair with Beachy Texture
This peacock hair definitely has a mermaid feel to it, don’t you think? The beautiful thick slices of teal, streaks of royal blue, and touches of deep purple are all the shades of a tropical ocean. The beachy texture of the waves is pretty dreamy too.
5Dark Chocolate Curls with Peacock Tips
The dark chocolate base color of this hair is so rich and luxurious and we love how the tips have been lifted with some peacock colors. The emerald green, ocean blue, and violet tones are the perfect complement to glossy chocolate locks.
6Icy Blonde Hair with Pastel Peacock Balayage
Light tones are also a great base for peacock tones. A peacock balayage contrasts so well with the silver base color, making each of the tones really pop. Very ethereal!
7Long and Vibrant Peacock Hair
We love how this peacock hair has just hints of purple, instead of focusing on the gorgeous blues and greens of a peacock’s beautiful plumage. The colors blend together like water and have such a wonderful sheen to them. Loving the peacock hair feather accessory too.
8Peacock Nape Undercut
For an edgier take on the peacock hair color trend, why not go for an on-trend nape undercut? The nape of the neck has been shaved in peacock feather shapes, which have been dyed in the bird’s trademark colors. With a nape undercut you are not locked into a design, after a few weeks you can shave it off and start again.
9Asymmetric Bob with Peekaboo Peacock Highlights
The cut of this asymmetric bob is absolutely amazing and the black color is the perfect contrast to make those peekaboo highlights really pop. Such a striking look.
10Silver Pixie with Peacock Highlights
This two-tone hair color look is out of this world. The grown-out pixie is a wonderful silver shade around the crown and incredible peacock colors through the bangs. So impactful!
11Subtle Peacock Highlights
For a more subtle, but no less stunning, take on the peacock hair trend, why not try these subtle highlights through a black base. The deep blue and lime green work so well with the dark hair color and the think slices of color through the bangs look great too.
12Auburn Hair with Chunky Peacock Slices
We are loving this unusual take on the peacock hair trend. The natural auburn of the top section of hair is gorgeous and somehow works with the thick slice of peacock colors at the back of the head. It is such an interesting mix of colors that is so eye-catching.
13Bright and Beautiful Peacock Waves
There is so much vibrancy to this peacock hair. Thick slices of color, prevent the individual tones of green, blue, and purple from blending into one another. Each tone stands out, and are accentuated thanks to those lovely soft waves.
14Ash Brown Bob with Peacock Tips
There is a bit of a grunge feel to these ash brown locks with peacock tips, don’t you think? The tousled waves and the smokey hair colors make for a tougher take on the peacock trend. Really cool.
15Super Sleek Peacock Ombre
The high shine of this peacock ombre is unbelievable. The glossy finish gives the colors an extra pop and the colors have been blended so well together for a seamless transition from bright violet to vibrant teal.

How great is peacock hair? The colors are so dreamy and vibrant and you should take care of your hair properly so they stay that way. A good color care shampoo and conditioner will help to prevent your colour from fading too quickly, as will only washing your hair when you need too. Furthermore, since it is summer you will need to protect your hair from the sun, which can also contribute to color fade. Invest in a sun protection spay for your hair and give your peacock locks a quick spritz before you head out in the sun to keep those gorgeous colors brighter for longer.
If you want to just try out the peacock hair trend on a more temporary basis before you commit to it, hair chalks are perfect. You can experiment with just a few different peacock highlights through the tips or you can go over the top with it, knowing that the colors will wash out. If you love how the tones of purple, blue, and green look, then you can head to the salon and get something more permanent.
