You’ve paid good money to dye your hair a brand new color—it’s only right to make the most out of it with a complementary hairstyle. After all, why wear your hair the usual way when there are better cuts out there to show off your new dye job? Below, we list hairstyles that maximize your new hue in the best way possible:

1. Bob With Bangs

Have you finally taken the plunge and gotten the pastel dip-dye you’ve always wanted? Don’t let your whimsical color fade into the background—pair it with a fringed bob. It’s a look worthy of your K-pop idols, but it works just as well on confident girls who march to the beat of their own drum.

2. Relaxed Beachy Waves

Ombré hair is really low-maintenance; you don’t really need to go for touchups since the color creates a gradient from root to up. Complement that low-key vibe with effortless beachy waves. Just curl your hair with a styling wand and run your fingers through the lengths to make them look more relaxed.

3. Edgy Asymmetrical Chop

Platinum blonde hair isn’t the easiest to maintain—what with regular touchups at the salon and rigorous maintenance at home. It’s a daring color, to say the least, but you can make an even bigger impact by rocking an asymmetrical pixie cut. It’s bold and dramatic, just like you.

4. Cool Girl Lob

Balayage highlights require an equally trendy hairstyle. Turn into your favorite It Girl and ask your hairstylist for a laidback lob. This mid-length ‘do makes sun-kissed highlights look even more irresistible.

5. Playful Side Ponytail

If it’s cotton candy hair you’re yearning for, try this equally youthful hairstyle to go with it. An homage to ‘80s teenagers, a playful side ponytail puts your fairy-esque hair color front and center. You’re bound to put a smile on others’ faces with this bright and cheerful look.

When you’re playing around with hair colors, it’s only natural for your hair to feel the strain. But don’t let damage stop you from experimenting with different hairstyles. All you need are solid haircare products that cater to your hair type. If you have thin, damaged tresses, try the Dove Weightless Repair 1 Minute Foam Conditioner. It has a lightweight formula that helps hydrate your hair without weighing it down. If you have thick, damaged hair, try the Dove Ultra Light Repair 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner. It delivers just the right amount of nourishment without the heavy, greasy feeling. If you have thick, dry, color-damaged hair, try the Dove Intense Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It’s infused with rich serum capsules that help undo damage and hydrate hair from within.

If you want to try a new hairstyle, but just can’t figure out what would work well with your hair type, you’re not alone! Below, we helped Cosmo girls find their next signature look based on the damage they’re dealing with.
