The signs of spring are on the horizon, not least in the gorgeous array of the spring hair colors on offer for this upcoming season named spring. Spring can be felt in the air as the warm breeze beckons early dawn, and birds sing beautifully in the distance. Nights become milder, and flowers sprinkle the gardens of town and the city alike. With so much vibrant transformation occurring in the natural world it is time for your look to follow suit!
Today, we will test the best strategies for transforming your mane for the warmer months and examine some of the best spring hair colors for blonde, brunette, and bedhead hair.
When we think of spring hair colors, we think of dazzling, radiant hair that achieves its prismatic pinnacle in the afternoon sun. Hair which is multidimensional and multi-tonal and captivates with its healthy sheen. This season rose gold hair, baby pink, and vibrant pastels figure heavily along with radiant ombre caramel color and balayage brown color.
Tradition dictates that warm weather equates to lighter, sunnier hair. We love to throw a wrench in tradition, though, and suggest that going lighter is not your single option for spring!
1. Cool Brunette
It’s not surprising that model-turned-actress Emily Ratajkowski is a rocking one of 2019’s hottest brunette shades. In this amazing selfie, posted and styled by hairstylist our expert style, Ratajkowski’s voluminous waves bring out each cool-toned highlight in a subtle, natural way. This brown is anything but a mousy. It’s ashy and of course, cool — in every sense of your word.
2. Living Coral
It’s not often that Julia Roberts surprises us with her hair transformation. The A-lister has been swinging between medium-brown and blonde shades, and curly and wavy textures for quite some moments. While promoting her new movie Ben Is Back, Roberts shocked us all by debuting a shade which looks a lot like Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year with Living Coral. The peachy hue brightens up her total face.
3. Dirty Brunette
You may have heard of the dirty blondes, but have you heard of dirty brunettes? “I think we are going to see a lot of the trend in 2019,” says our expert hairstylist of Los Angeles, seen over here. He explains that the hue is a natural-looking brunette hair color which incorporates dark blonde pieces with a more neutral, smoky vibe. It’s not warm or cool — it is somewhere in the middle.
4. Faded Pastel
Bodt loves the faded pastel mane trend because it is more of a wash of color, as opposed to an impregnated pastel. “It’s less of assurance and looks just like a little blush on the hair,” she explains. It’s a hint or even a cast. Model Ariela Soares rocked a light-blue hue for the Spring 2019 runway show.
5. Dark Blonde
There are so many right dark blonde shades trending right now, it is difficult to pick a favorite. It is low-maintenance, pretty, and a great way to winterize your blonde hue. Beyoncé recently tried a version sometimes called “chocolate chip cookie mane.” It’s a mixture of warm brunette hues and strategically-placed light pieces. And it only gets better as it grows. Massachusetts-based colorist tells the allure, “as the roots keep coming in, the color gets more lovely with depth up top and a dramatic dark-to-light feel.”
6. Dusty Copper
While red mane is always stunning, the colorist says many clients shy away from the hue because they think it comes off too “fiery.” Dusty copper mane, on the other part, still gives you that gorgeous red shade, but a bit toned down. The colorist describes the color as looking as if it is muted by dry shampoo- in a better way. “I love this color because it is warm, yet not over the top,” the colorist says. We can’t get enough of Riverdale actress Madelaine Petsch’s light copper hue, made even more gorgeous with loose waves.
