Looking to shake up your style or try something new? Colouring your hair is a great way to achieve that, and there are several trendy hair colours to choose from.
Hair colouring is a cosmetic practise that can be dated for thousands of years. For example, the ashes of plants and nuts were used to lighten the hair of ancient Romans. They also darkened their hair, and one way they achieved their darker looks was through fermenting leeches for several months. The Vikings reportedly lightened their hair through a fat-and-ash mixture.
Since then, dye practices have become more sophisticated, and a wider range of colours has become available. There have also been plenty of exciting hair trends that come and go with the seasons. So, if you are looking to change your hair colour, here are a few of the year’s trends you can choose from.
The trendiest colours for spring 2022 are bright and bold with a touch of playfulness. So if you have been thinking of changing up your hairstyle, there is no better time than now. This season, there is a little something for everyone. Here are the eight hair colour trends you will be seeing this spring:
Before dying your hair, you should consider several factors, such as your colour goals and natural shade. If you have already considered these main factors, then one hair colour trend you may be interested in is a mixture of chestnut and copper.
This shade is bold yet approachable, which is excellent for those who want to make a change but aren’t quite ready for an ultra-bright hue. The mixture of warm browns with a hint of red makes it an ideal shade for anyone who has a skin tone with olive or yellow undertones on their skin.
Colour melting creates a natural colour without the need to lighten the hair like you would with the balayage.
To achieve this coveted look, you can ask your stylist to blend a chocolate brown colour into darker roots. When the chocolate colour is added three inches below the roots, it can create a rich and full of depth style while also giving the impression of lighter hair.
This brunette colour is guaranteed to make you a smoke show. This rich, deep-brown colour is an excellent choice if you are a naturally darker brunette. It is sure to turn every day into a good hair day.
A balayage is a great way to give your hair depth and dimension.
This hair is generally darker at the roots and then blends seamlessly into a lighter colour on the ends. However, colours can vary depending on your desire.
This hairstyle trend is excellent for people who want to add colour to their hair without worrying about it being high maintenance since your natural colour can be left at the roots. It will also not look nearly as dramatic as if you were colouring the whole head. This is also an excellent choice for those who want to add colour to their hair for the first time. That’s because the colour doesn’t need to be added to the roots.
This colour gives your hair natural lighter tones. This trend is accomplished through a foiling technique, but the effect makes it look like the sun has naturally lightened the hair. This is a soft and gentle approach to colour, but it is very trendy at the moment.
This rich, warm blonde is becoming more and more popular in opposition to the cooler ashy blondes. Unlike ash blonde hair, which is cool-toned, a honey blonde colour creates more of a naturally rich tone.
This style is also great because it is less maintenance and works well with the natural warmth that comes through the hair. Blondes often have to turn to purple shampoos to neutralize brassy and yellow tones and achieve a cooler tone, but you can embrace your hair’s warmer colours with honey blonde hair instead.
This colour trend may be for you if you want to stand out from the crowd or simply want to try something new. Whether the colour you want to try is a deep jewel tone, a soft pastel colour, or a bright neon shade, you are sure to be the life of the party.
Vibrant colours may be higher maintenance than most of the hair trends previously listed, but you can easily find the best way to keep your vibrant colour fresh for as long as you wish by consulting a stylist.
First popularized in the 90s, this hairstyle has since made a comeback. The money piece is great for brightening your face, accentuating your features, and drawing attention to your base hair colour. Plenty of celebrities have also been spotted with this hairstyle.
This style is created by having two lighter pieces at the front of the face or part line. This adds lightness around the face without being too light all over or at the roots throughout the hair.
For this hairstyle to stand out, the rest of your hair should be a few shades darker. The money piece can be created with different tones of blondes, although you can also create this style with other colours for different effects.
This trendy colour is generally incorporated with a balayage hair colour. This style requires minimal maintenance since it requires only a few foils through the front and will grow out very softly.
Hair trends have become a lot more intricate – and stylish – since the days of using ash, fat, and other mixtures to colour our hair. If you are ready to try out a new hairstyle and want something bold and fun, these trends are the best place to start.
