Ombre is different from the shadow root trend because the fade isn’t as close to the root, and the ombre’s color transition is more gradual and gentle.
A POP of Color
A single pop of color, like on pink strip on the side or a dusting of purple on the bangs, is a great combination of fun and professional. Adding a little bit of unnatural color can feed your free spirit, but still be an easily attainable look.
Adding pastel colors to your hair is a popular trend, and there’s no mystery as to why. It’s cute, works great with a variety of clothing styles and skin tones. However, like rose gold, there is a particular pastel color that stands above the rest as a notable summer hair color trend: peppermint. This light color compliments any hair length and shines in the sun. Plus it has all the benefits of the rose pink trend–once it fades, you’re left white-sand babylights or a warm, honey look. You can’t go wrong with peppermint or any other pastel colors.
Sun Rise Red
The color sun rise red is different than that of your typical ginger. It has warmer, more blonde tones to it. Just like a summer sunset, it’s warm like the orange and red tones in the sky. Since sun rise red isn’t a bright shade of red, blondes and brunettes can transition to this color with confidence.
No matter what your personal style is, there is a summer hairstyle trend that will be the perfect complement to your skin tone, clothing style, texture or color. The most important thing is to find the look that’ll give you the most confident summer ever.
