Summer Hair Color Trends 2014

5 Smart Hair Color Trend Strategies This Summer

Choosing the right hair color for summer 2014 is critical based on two reasons: 1) it enables you to create stunning looks with less effort, and 2) it also determines your summer hair care routine. But what if I told you you can hit two birds with one stone? Indeed, it is possible to look chic by finding the right hair color that will suit your desired look. Hence, we have put together a guide that will help you pick from the hottest summer hair color trends 2014 to stand out and nourish your hair health at the same time.

Copper

If you have naturally rich and warm copper hue of your hair, summer 2014 is your time to shine. Hair and beauty experts insist that this hue is one of the hottest this season. It is also an ideal hair color to sport if you are looking to try out the wet hair trend. Additionally, redheads have always been head-turners. But if you are not a fan of a deep red, then copper is a good option because there is a hint of red, but not too dark as to bring forth too much attention to it.

Sunny Blonde

The sunny blonde is the perfect choice for summer because it makes your blonde hair color look as though it has been naturally darkened from sun exposure. It is a bit more edgy than a beach blonde, though, as it tends to be somewhat darker. However, the look is really natural and is recommended for blondes who want to go a bit darker on their hair’s natural hue.

Multi-Tonal Color

The multi-tonal hair color is recommended for summer 2014 because it works on almost all skin tones. It is the perfect combination of blonde, red, and brown rolled into one. However, the most striking feature about a multi-tonal color is that not one of these colors are dominant.

Monochromatic Blonde

Bright blondes are also drawing a lot of attention this summer. However, if you are skeptical about the idea of bleaching, don’t worry. There are newer processes that provide a high-lift effect that will not be as damaging to your hair as a bleach. The process is designed to lighten the hair color base without stripping away the warmth of the color. This color is most flattering on women with lighter skin tones. However, you should refrain from turning your blonde into something ashy or too light.

Pastels

Thanks to celebrity risk-takers like Kelly Osbourne and Nicole Richie, hairstylists have seen a huge surge of clients taking the plunge in the hair color department. And there is no better time to explore with pastel hair colors, but in the summer time. The fact that these celebrities are showcasing their bold colors on the red carpet has also made these looks multi-dimensional.

Which of these colors have you tried this summer?

Heat Up Your Look this Fall With These Gorgeous, Rich Hair Color Ideas!

With honey blonde, champagne reds, and rich caramels and chocolate, the forecast for fall hair color ideas are delicious. Whether you want to explore your darker side or want to lighten up this fall, tis the season to try something new with your hair color. We’ve got you covered with the 4 hottest hair color ideas this fall season.

Honey Blonde

Hair color this fall is taking on warmer tones including blondes. This golden shade of warm honey blonde is a great way to enhance naturally warm skin tones. If you don’t want to go all the way, consider adding some honey high lights or low lights to enhance your glowing skin. Warm honey blonde looks gorgeous with long flowing hair or untamed waves.

 

Hair Color Ideas

Champagne Red

Take your blonde to another level with this trendy champagne hair color twist. Because it’s cooler than copper and strawberry blonde, champagne red is a great choice for skin with blue undertones or olive skin. If you have paler skin, champagne is also a great way to add depth as lighter blonde colors can wash out women with lighter skin. This color pairs well with a sweet bob or pretty pixie.

Hair Color Ideas

 

Caramel & Chocolate

Embrace fall hair color with a deep chocolate shade complimented with accents of a rich caramel hue. Fall is a great time to experiment with darker color, and these irresistibly warm and velvety hues can make skin brighter and more youthful. Pair this color with layers or waves to show off the gorgeous dimension.

Cinnamon Stick

Now that you’re done swimming in the pool and sitting in the sun for a while, it’s officially the  the best time to enjoy those vibrant red colors again! Paired with pale or cool skin tones, cinnamon red is a fun way to give your look a punch of color. Whether long or shorter, this spicy color looks great with bangs.

Dark Chocolate

Go au naturale with a shade in rich dark chocolate. If your go-to color is black, consider warming up your look with a shade lighter. This is a subtle way to modernize your hair color without a drastic change. Shine on with a super smooth and straight look for your dark chocolate locks.

If you don’t want a major haircut but want to change up your look for fall, hair color is a great way to experiment with your look. Our tans may be fading along with shorter evenings and lazy vacations, but we can still hold on to a bit of warmth with fall’s rich (warmer) hair shades.

How Fall Hair Color Trends Have Changed

Reinvent Your Hair Color With These Subtle Trend Changes For Fall

Right after Labor Day everybody gets tired of the summer sun kissed looks and starts looking around for something a bit more earthy in hair colors. So I thought it’s time to look at some of the subtle changes I’m seeing in the fall hair color trends this year. Just like any other year, there has been a bevy of celebrities that have observed unique subtle hair color trends for fall, and their sense of style has been followed by many across the globe.

When talking to your hair stylist bringing in pictures is always helpful, as it can put you both on the same page. Your strawberry blonde may not be the same as your hair stylists’ idea of a “strawberry blonde” but an image it’s a great visual guide. A picture insures that you’re both singing from the same hymnal and reduces the likelihood of unpleastent surprises. So here are some of my thoughts about the fall hair color trends.

Balayage

Whatever flavor you like your highlights, this fall, it’s all about a more natural sun kissed look. To achieve that celebrity style for today, don’t be afraid of showing a little root this fall and learning to embrace your natural hair color. Balayage is the perfect option to achieve that look, just make sure your hair colorist is well trained in the French hair painting technique and has taken classes or is certified.

The perfect sunny day’s hair look is the rich caramel tone. However, warm, honey-streaked locks are gorgeous any time of the year and work well with most skin types especially those with olive and warm complexions. Jessica Alba and J-Lo are great examples of a perfect caramel shade.

Dimensional Blondes

Solid “Playboy Bunny” blondes are adding more depth into the hair with deeper medium tones to keep it softer and more natural like Kate Hudson. The key is having your hair colorist apply lowlights or medium tones in a strategic way so they don’t appear like stripes but soft ribbons. Zig zaging highlights and lowlights is the perfect way to achieve a dimensional modern blonde.

 

Face Framing Highlights one of the Fall Hair Color Trends

Brunettes

Brunettes like Lilly Aldridge are adding softer face framing highlights to enhance layers around the face. The key is to keep to highlights only two shades lighter so you still have a brunette feel without over lightening the hair.

Another great way to spice up a brunette without adding highlights is by adding some copper or cherry-chocolate tones the brown. These look great on warm and olive skin tones.

 

Softer Reds are Fall Hair Color Trends

Redheads

Red heads like Amy Adams are looking softer and less intense as a hair color trend this fall. Adding more golden brown and warm cinnamon tones can be weaved in with soft highlights or with a color gloss. Glossing is a great way to add depth and warmth to reds or any hair color. A gloss is typically an ammonia free hair color that just deposits sheer tone and helps add shine, luster and condition and is applied to all the hair at the shampoo basin and just sits for a few minutes.

A fall Hair Color Trend

 Ombre

Ombre is still a popular hair color trend, but has evolved from being an extreme look to more natural transition from dark to light by adding a third color. You shouldn’t be able to see where the dark stops and the light starts. A medium tone will help create a seamless transition. Hair that is medium to long in length tends to wear ombre the best. It can be styled anyway, but looks great with a one or two inch curling iron to add soft beachy waves. Many women love ombre so much because it grows out nicely and lets you stretch your hair color appointments out a little longer.

Caring for your fall hair color

Maintaining Your New Color

Most importantly protect your hair color by using sulfate free shampoo and conditioners which will help to protect and preserve your hair color. Remember to maintain regular trims, and moisturizing treatments will keep your hair color looking celebrity worthy and fade resistant. It’s also important when changing your hair color or adding highlights to keep in mind your haircut. A great haircut will go unnoticed if the color isn’t enhancing the cut. For the perfect finish, don’t forget to touch up your makeup. Have fun, it’s just color!
