You've heard it before;
'Rule: Hair color should go lighter in the Spring and Summer and go darker in the Fall and Winter.'
And while I do believe there is some merit to this rule and I have often advised clients at the salon of this myself, I am also a little bit of a rule breaker too. [Just ask my dad... or my husband ;)]
When in reality, there are no rules that apply to everyone when it comes to beauty, that is in fact that beauty of it! #punforthewin But in the Spring of 2015 those so-called 'rules' have been bent, and I am LOVING it!
Why? Well, because the rule-breaker in me gets to shine of course, but also because these latest trends are healthier for the hair and are lower maintenance in general. Softer colors with less contrast and more blending grow out more gracefully leaving less noticeable roots, and who doesn't freaking love that!? Take a look at the video below where I stopped by Studio5 TV to discuss the 3 Spring hair color trends you need to know about.
- Trend #1- Sombre The grown up version of the ombre color, this subtle version is sophisticated and easy to wear for a much larger age gap than the trend we saw in years past. It's healthier for the ends of the hair because it requires less lightening/bleaching, and it works for hues from red to blonde as well as the brunettes pictured.
- Trend #2 - Toffee Blonde This one may be the most unusual trend of the season, seeing as most blondes tend to crank up the peroxide once the sun comes back out. But celebs like Elizabeth Olsen are showing us the warmer richer blondes are still perfectly posh this season. The toffee tone is super flattering on most skin tones, and is again less damaging and easier for maintenance on most women.
- Trend #3 - Ecaille/ Tortoiseshell A yummy blend of all things rich, this color is all the rage these days and features dark mahogany, chocolate, and caramels all swirled into one gorgeous combo. Think shiny and warm, with lots of dimension and texture!
Which trend is your favorite, and will you give any of them a try? Let me know in the comments below, and have a great Tuesday! PS come say hi over on instagram
