With temperatures warming up and beach vacations calling our names, it's time for summer hairstyles to make an appearance.
Here are the season's most popular color trends. Get inspired and choose your own summer style.
5 Summer Hair Color Trends
While platinum blonde had its moment last year, this summer silver is making an appearance. Stars like Jennifer Lawrence are embracing this trend that gives more of an edge to the average light blonde. If you choose to go with the icy blonde look, be prepared for frequent trips to the salon to keep up with the color.
A Hint of Color
Interested in a wild color, but not ready to commit? Another summer trend is pops of color on smaller sections of hair. Lauren Conrad has been spotted with this trend, showing off a hot pink dipdyed bottom of her ponytail. Another way to introduce a bit of color is by dying only the underlayer of hair, leaving the top layer your natural color. When you pull your hair up, you can show off your creative color choice.
Summer is the perfect time to have a little more fun with your style. We're moving on from pastels and seeing both men and women opting for a denim blue. The trend combines shades of blue and gray to give the look of a worn-in pair of jeans. Denim blue dyed hair looks especially great when braided or left down in loose waves.
If dying your hair a funky color is a bit too far outside of your comfort zone (or your office dress code) the bronde trend may be a better option for you. Recently dubbed the cinnamon swirl, this look starts with your natural color then blends in brighter and darker strands to create a golden brown glow.
Dark to light ombre doesn't work for everyone, and blonde ends may not be the look you want. For those with darker hair or red tones, the auburn balayage can offer a beautiful, more natural look. Your natural color remains on top and an auburn shade is painted onto strands starting about halfway down your hair.
