Dying orange over faded green
« on: 01 Aug 17 / 07:44 PM »
Hi there!

Im New to the forum, and do have quite a bit experience With weird colours.
However, ive always stayed away from the "warmer tones" like red, Orange and yellow.

Off course, i DO want to try them out this time around and was just wonderingif you guys could give me a few tips.

At the moment, Im gonna dye my hair green tomorrow (Manic Panic Green Envy) (Over blue, will probably end up kinda turqoiuse after a week or so) .

However, Down the line, i want to go for a shocking Orange. Kinda like Leelo from Fifth Element, and im jus wondering if anyone have had any experience With going from green to Orange?

I will try to make the green/blue fade as mutch as possible, and the Orange will be vibrant. Do you guys think it will come out too Muddy?
I dont mind if it turns out a little muted.

Any tips?

Green to orange is a nightmare. If there's any green/blue left it goes really nasty unless it's a super duper pigmented orange. Even then it'll make it rusty orange at best or just dull it to a sickly shade. Going from one opposite colour to another is always hard, but some are harder than others.

You'd be better off going around the colour wheel a bit. Go from green, to yellow green, to yellow, to orange. Or, the other way around. Green, to blue, to purple, to red, to orange.

Hi,

Apologies 1000x if this isn't allowed, but I figured since I have the opposite problem it would be okay to post under this instead of starting a new thread. I would like to go from orange to green. Would I have to also make my way around the colour wheel?
