37 Brilliant Galaxy Hair Color Styles

1. Sunset Shades

If you love sunsets, why not get the sunset hues on your hair? This galaxy style features the epic colors of the sunset. The hair style has a combination of red, orange, yellow, and brown streaks against the dark purple shade that captures the essence of the sunset sky.

Cyliena Velnarin, a blogger, got her hair colored in sunset shades. She was initially aiming for fire hair, but the colors turned out to be more vibrant than the ones needed for the fire illusion, giving her sunset hair. In her blog, she mentions, “The colors ended up much richer than the typical ones used in fire hair coloring, so ‘sunset hair’ more appropriately fit the style.” She also mentions having to get touch-ups with the red tending towards rose gold instead, hence her stylist found a workaround, “Instead of layering red/orange/gold, she did a red-to-orange ombre and kept the gold layer (the only one that’s been sticking) underneath (i).”

2. Blue And Pink Pastel Galaxy
