Do you have a hair appointment coming up? While you’re feverishly looking for a new haircut, take an even bolder step—go for a new color too.
Now here’s the thing: You can sit in the stylist chair and ask for a color that’s safe like a rinse or some soft highlights, or you can take advantage of some of the biggest color trends of the season.
Before you scroll down, you should be warned. These are some of the most outside-of-the-box shades that you’ve probably ever seen. But that’s a part of the reason why they’re our favorites. You’ll never blend in the crowd with these colors. And that’s just fine with us.
Sexy and burgundy
Are you a natural brunette? If so, consider going with a burgundy color. It’s not super drastic but at the same time, it’s really sexy.
Dark honey blonde
Dark honey blonde is a striking hair color. Mostly because no matter what your skin tone may be, it’s going to look absolutely divine.
Red and white highlights
Until this picture, you may have never thought about getting white highlights before. But if the base of your hair is brown and the highlights are mixed with some red ones, it’s one of the best looks that you could ever try.
Balayage. If you’ve never heard of it before, that’s OK. It’s basically a French-inspired coloring technique that is provides end results like these. A lot of women love it simply because it looks so natural. Sun-kissed rather than color processed.
Is purple your favorite color? Why not add it to your locks. Lavender is soft enough that you can wear it to work and to play.
Long and grey
Trends are really something. Although there used to be a time when women were dying their hair to cover up their grey, now they are dying it that color. And why not. Look at the stunning results!
Blue wave tips
If you really want to make a statement, take the ombre approach with different shades of blue. It’s as mesmerizing as the ocean.
If you asked 20 stylists about one of the hottest color trends, we’re willing to be that they’d all say “rose gold”. It’s simply—exquisite.
One of the best things about highlights is the fact that you can add color without drastically changing your appearance. If you don’t want to try anything too extremely, caramel highlights will still improve the look of your hair. Plus, they are pretty easy to maintain. (Always a bonus!)
There is always something alluring and mysterious about a redhead. Especially one whose hair is the shade of a blazing fire.
OK, mocha brown isn’t super intense. But if your stylist adds a gloss treatment to it, you’ll still look gorgeous.
Be honest. How long did you stare at this picture before you started reading this? It’s takes a very self-assured woman to color her hair a deep shade of purple. But it’s well worth the risk. (Especially if her eyes are brown or blue.)
Platinum blonde is not a new trend. But it is definitely a classic look. One that has surefire results.
Silver and natural
This is similar to the great color. However, when silver coloring is added to natural hair textures, it brings out all kinds of dimensions.
Purple and blue highlights
Sometimes what makes a hairstyle unforgettable is how the cut and color work together. Take these purple and blue highlights against this asymmetrical bob, for example. This look brings new meaning to “cutting edge”.
Chunks of red and blonde
Are you currently wearing a short do? Instead of dyeing your head all one color, take a chunk of the front and add some red and blonde to it instead. We guarantee that at least once a day, someone will ask you “Where did you get your hair done?”
Soft and pink
This color is so romantic. Soft, pink, long. Remarkable. (Especially on long tresses.)
Deep reddish brown
Another color that goes really well on natural brunettes is a deep reddish brown. It makes the hair look so rich and healthy.
Really red and curly
She makes us smile. We think it’s because her red and curly mane makes her eyes light up. It’s a darling hairstyle. It really is.
Red and blonde ombre
Ombre is a color technique that’s not going anywhere any time soon. In part, because there are so many different variations to choose from. This red and blonde ombre is a favorite of ours. Give it a try!
