Hair Colors

A new season is approaching and you’re just dying to do something new with your hair. You want something stylish and trendy — perhaps even bold.

But with so many colors to choose from, you might find it difficult to keep up with the times.

Don’t worry:

You’ll find everything you need to know right here.

The looks on this list cover so much ground. You can warm up your locks, add some depth to your ‘do, or make a statement with your shade.

These seven trendy hair colors are just waiting for you to give them a try.

1. Twilighting

Twilighting is the hair color for you if you want to turn up the glow factor.

As radiant as the muted tones of the sun, twilighting introduces pure, golden magic to any brunette hair.

It’s inspired by the sun’s rays at twilight when that perfect honey color takes to the sky (and not an insanely popular series of teen vampire books). Twilighting is a look that strives to lighten up and add dimension to dark hair.

The term was coined by Karissa Schaudt, who says it’s the perfect look for brunettes who want a shade that is trendy but not too wild.

Combining techniques, you can achieve twilighting with a mixture of babylights and balayage to add natural depth. The warm undertones change in the light to reflect golden hues that liven up your hair.

Make sure you take some pics and inspiration to your stylist to get it just right.

The brightness of your hair should be mainly concentrated around your face, with depth added in toward the back.

2. Show Some Roots

Crisp and clean is out. It’s all about casual, low-maintenance looks now.

The best way to keep your hair looking natural (even if it’s not) is by adding a touch of roots to your color. It makes your hair look lived in.

Believe it or not, it’s totally on-trend to leave your roots untouched.

Light hair with dark roots is what you want. Use root shadowing to make it look more natural than a harsh line. It blends the root color softly and seamlessly into the rest of your hair.

And this color doesn’t just look low maintenance. Because you’re leaving your natural roots exposed, you can go ten or twelve months without a salon trip.

Who doesn’t love some simplicity with their style?

3. Something Blue

It’s not uncommon for Pantone’s Color of the Year to make its way onto enough heads to become a trend. 2020 is no different.

This year, Pantone has named Classic Blue as its Color of the Year. While that may seem boring on paper, it’s anything but.

When translated onto your hair, this blue is a statement maker. Plus, it looks good on anyone.

If you’re not up for something so in-your-face, try toning down this year’s favorite color with a nice dusty blue.

If you happened to have platinum hair and you’re ready to transition away from it, blue is the perfect option. Because it’s ashy, the color won’t look out of place covering that silver you had before.

And you’ll still look super trendy.

4. Blonde as Butter

Are you ready for a sweet treat?

Buttercream Blonde is the newest trend for those of you that want to try out yellow hair. It’s a naturally creamy color that makes it look like you were blessed by the sun itself.

Okay, that’s a little extreme. But it is an extremely gorgeous hair color with a ton of versatility so you can make it your own.

Full buttercream blonde is the complete yellow look. It combines warm and cool tones of yellow to create a color that compliments any type of skin. For this reason, it’s a fantastic beginner blonde.

Brunettes can benefit from buttercream blonde as well.

Add these warm yellow highlights to your dark hair for a lighter look without going full-on blonde from the start. Sort of like dipping your toes in the pool.

A warm pool full of butter.

5. Half and Half

If you haven’t seen Dua Lipa’s new half-and-half hair, you need to.

This trend was popular in the early 2000s, and it’s making a comeback almost 20 years later. Everything comes back around in the end.

Lighten things up with a nice pop of color. And by “pop,” we mean an incredibly stark contrast of color right there on your head.

Talk about a statement.

High-contrast colors like black and white give you a unique look that is bold and all your own.

You can separate the colors by the top and bottom layers of your hair. Add a bright streak to your bangs. Go for a right-side, left-side separation. Mix and match the colors you like the most.

With this hairstyle, there is no blending. You can clearly see where each color begins and ends.

That’s what makes it so fantastic.

6. Orchard Red

Now, if you’re looking for a more natural pop of color, this is what you need.

Orchard red isn’t the kind of red you might be thinking. It’s not that fire engine color covering your hair and making you look like an apple fresh from the orchard.

This is another look that’s perfect for any brunettes out there.

It adds a beautiful depth of color to your hair by incorporating rusty highlights that blend seamlessly into naturally brown shades.

Hints of copper, auburn, and ginger are layered into your hair for subtle, red highlights that catch the light when you move. They make your hair look different every way you turn.

It’s a great way to get that red hair you always dreamed of without going super bold.

7. Just Add Ice

No matter the year or the season, ice blonde refuses to stop being trendy.

Go straight up ice queen by lightening your hair to a cold, silvery blonde that will give anyone the chills. Or, try out a beige ice color to add the slightest touch of warmth to your chilly ‘do.

If you’re not ready to commit, that’s okay. An icy color melt will keep your dark roots intact while transitioning to a lighter color at the tips.

You can even spruce this look up by adding a touch of sharp blue to the bright white mix.

Elsa who?

In Conclusion

Mix up your look this season by adding onto your natural hair or going for a new color altogether. We both know you’re ready for a change. Why not make it wow-worthy?

New Season: New You!
