Trend spotting is great, but what if you could get in on the biggest trends of the year before everyone else? Want the inside scoop on 2016’s hottest hair color trends? Read on to find out what’s on the color menu.
The rose gold hair color trend continues to shine strong this year. It’s the perfect balance between pastel/ rainbow hair color trends and more solid washes. It’s bold, but delicate. It’s unicolor but dimensional. And it’s edgy without being niche. Contrary to popular belief, the rose gold trend can be worn in a variety of shades, ranging from the very pale pink hue for blonde bases to a deeper, more sunset-pink for darker bases.
It wears well and looks charming even as it fades, so you don’t have to touchup very often. And the best part? The color works with every skin tone.
Get rose-ready quick because the rose gold hair color trend is going to be one of Spring 2016’s biggest hair color trends.
We’ve seen so many iterations of blonde balayage and ombré over the last two years that it’s hard to get psyched up over yet another blonde-based trend, but this one’s breaking the mold. How? Because it’s taking back everything artificial and obvious and replacing it with the real sun-kissed, faded-by-nature-and-not-by-dye effect. It’s not a uniform blonde trend: it’s a blonde that’s perfect for your skin tone, adapted to the individual and offset with natural highlights and lowlights and a gradient to die for.
Get in the mood for warm weather with this one. Think beach volleyball, the perfect tan and margaritas by the shore.
Does the idea of black-and-blue worry you? Think again. We’re talking the most fabulously edgy take on the Goth hair trend that turns up every couple of years. Think sapphires. Granite in the light. The color of midnight.
This one’s especially suited for black-haired beauties but you can always go dark if your natural/current base is light. We work with a black base and add hints of steel blue to create a marriage of charcoal and Prussian blue.
Imagine the might sky, backlit by its own essence. Your very own inky canvas.
Whoever said that blue was for the boy is definitely missing out on 2016’s hottest hair color trend. This lovely take on the trend is by Hugo Salon in Kensington, MD.
A bold choice, this. But beautiful in an otherworldly way. What makes this color so magical is that it strikes the perfect balance between the two Pantone 2016 colors: Rose Quartz (soft, almost powdery blue) and Serenity (pale pink). The colors of the sky at daybreak and early sunset.
Mix Serenity and Rose Quartz and you get a muted, sophisticated purple. Wear alone or as a wash over a grey base for a tone-in-tone effect.
If violet is a little too subtle for your taste, you can try a more vibrant take on the hue. This bold color is on-trend, but not for the faint of heart.
