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.

Lavender locks

Long and grey

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.

Caramel highlights

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!)

Fire red

There is always something alluring and mysterious about a redhead. Especially one whose hair is the shade of a blazing fire.

Mocha brown

OK, mocha brown isn’t super intense. But if your stylist adds a gloss treatment to it, you’ll still look gorgeous.

Deep violet

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

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!
