General Dyed Hair Color Meanings
There is little evidence to suggest any connection between natural hair color and personality, it’s largely just stereotypical connections. However when you bring personal choice into the equation, things get more interesting. Personal choice often reveals preferences, therefore personality traits.
This is a general explanation of why women and even sometimes men dye their hair unconventional colors. For example Red, Blue, Green, Purple and Pink, being the more common colors.
Dying hair unconventional colors to no surprise implies unconventional thinking, and a desire to be unique. They also have an impulse to outwardly express themselves including their desire for creativity. Those with creative desires tend to be open minded people, open to new experiences and often seeking variety in life.
They’re unlikely to be looking for attention, simply wishing to express their instinctual impulses. There is also a good chance that these people have tattoos for similar reasons.
These people are likely to have a highly intuitive personality. They dislike authority, rules and common conventions. They probably have a somewhat rebellious temperament, likely introverted and passively aggressive, likely to be indirect when dealing with confrontation.
Highly intuitive personalities tend to be idealistic in their thinking, either very compassionate or logical depending on the dominance of other personality traits. This intuitiveness often leads to not always very practical thinking and ideas.
