Spring is here! The sun is shining and a fresh new batch of beauty trends is in bloom. Are you ready to switch up your style? Here are six of the hottest hair color ideas this season.
The tortoiseshell is predicted to become a popular spring hair color technique, much like the ombré was in 2014.
James Corbetter, celebrity colorist, describes the tortoiseshell as: “…warm browns, honeys and ambers just like a tortoiseshell comb. Blondes are more golden, with a few babylights worked into these tones to create the subtle dimension. Think Jessica Alba and brand new mom Blake Lively. I have a lot of clients asking for this!”
2. MONOTONAL BRUNETTE
Are you still rocking your dark winter hue? Keep it! An all-over dark brown shade with no highlights is a great hair color for brunettes this spring.
Anne Hathaway, Katie Holmes and Olivia Munn are just a few celebrities sporting the one-dimensional color this season. As a bonus, the upkeep is minimal and doesn’t require frequent trips to the salon for touch-ups.
Red can be gorgeous when it complements the skin tone, but many women are afraid of making a more drastic color change from their natural hues. This season, it might be time to take the risk!
“Red hair is major right now and will be for spring, too,” says colorist Aura Friedman.
There is a red for everybody, whether it’s copper red, chestnut red, strawberry red or a more vibrant, statement-red. Be sure to ask a trusted stylist which shade would work best for you.
4. CARAMEL BLONDE
One hair color for blondes this season incorporates caramel highlights. Ask your stylist for warm, buttery highlights that blend naturally with your hair color. Keep it fresh and on-trend by not going too light at the ends.
Say goodbye to the dip-dyes and ombrés. This season, a much more popular highlight technique will be babylights that start about a quarter down from the roots.
Regardless of the hair color you’re starting out with, babylights can add dimension and shine to your tresses that looks sun-kissed and natural.
If you’re feeling more adventurous with your locks, a pastel hair color — whether in the form of highlights or as an all-over color — is all the rage this season.
Seen on celebrities Hillary Duff, Nicole Richie and Katy Perry, colors like lavender, baby pink and teal are part of the colorful trend.
