The newest hair colours we’re obsessing over this season add dimension, brighten the complexion, and look super natural…
There’s a new hue for everyone…
To add texture and dimension to dark hair, consider a slight lift with blush-toned highlights for a wearable touch of warmth. Highlighting with pink or burgundy tones won't result in any brassiness so the end result looks like your hair, just jazzed up. Because the colour is subtle there is minimal processing so you’ll only need a good conditioning product like SHOW Beauty Pure Moisture Conditioner for the ends to keep your hair looking and feeling shiny and healthy.
Looking for something bright and flattering, but low on commitment? Honey and caramel highlights will add light to the face and warm up brown or naturally dark blonde hair. For a fresh approach, try just touching up the top layers and front sections with gold, and leaving the rest of your colour alone - that way, you don’t have to head into the hairdresser too often for root re-growth.
This gold-based colour channels a summer spent on the beach and makes the whole look warm and flattering - especially if you have tanned, olive, or yellow undertones in your skin tone. If you have dark blonde hair, ask for bright flecks of baby blonde balayage a few shades lighter than your natural colour throughout, or if you're a bleach blonde, add some caramel pops through the lengths. Think surfer girl hair gone glam and you’re on the right track.
To get this look, ask for a single process, golden copper base colour. Spicy shades are popular because they're flattering but still push the boundaries a bit more than most and the warmth in this works especially well on anyone with neutral to ruddy skin tone and freckles. Try tipping this into slightly pinky hues to draw attention to the eyes, and don’t forget that you’ll need a colour-depositing mask to keep your colour fresh at home.
For a subtle, caramel, sun-kissed colour that enhances curls and creates dimension, ask for some soft caramel highlights concentrated at the ends to make your curls pop. The process of lightening afro-textured hair is intense so make sure the ends are strong by having a trim first - and ask your colourist for a high lift colour instead of bleach for less damage. Use an ash toner afterwards to safeguard against brassiness.
