1. Espresso Summer Hair Color
Bring some life to your dull hair with espresso color. Espresso is for those loving dark brown colors. This color looks glossy and as such can add more shine to your mane.
2. Face – Framing Highlights
If you want to go blonde without actually going blonde, face-framing highlights are for you. The face-framing money-piece highlights further enhance the features of your face. From subtle blonde shades to vibrant hues, you have a plethora of choices.
3. Pop of Color
When it comes to color your hair, are you confused? To experiment with a bolder shade or to bring your wild side of summer, try a pop of color in a few strands and go all the way.
4. Dark and Mysterious
The old Hollywood glamour is dark rich color as it is always trending. With a short bob or short bang, you can pair it so that your look is retro-fresh forever.
5. Nude Hair (AKA Neutral Blonde)
For every skin tone, nude hair suits the best. It is the easiest way to go blonde this spring and summer. Neutral blonde contains an equal amount of both warm and cool tones making it flattering for everyone.
6. Honey Chestnut
Issa Rae’s skin tone perfectly matches the honey chestnut hue of her hair. Honey chestnut is a rusty and warm color reflecting the positive vibes of the summer season.
7. Cinnamon Swirl
Inspired by cinnamon rolls, this color is a mix of dark and light shades. It is a multi-dimensional shade that decreases the difference between blonde and brunette.
8. Living Coral Hair
Coral hair works in medium or lighter hair. This color is suitable for all skin tones.
9. Mocha Latte Hair
When it comes to hair color, take ideas from things around. What would you like to have on a rainy day? A cup of coffee? Mocha latte summer hair color is a combination of the dark brown color of coffee and chocolate. The reddish undertone this color has looks awesome regardless of your complexion.
10. Margarine Hair
Trying to keep the hair cool-toned with so many platinum blondes, it’s refreshing to see a yellowy blonde that looks so fabulous. It’s not brassy, it’s buttery.
11. Goth Brown Hair
Goth hairstyles reflect a mysterious and dark vibe. By forgoing the part of an undone style, commit to the goth style and add a smoky cat-eye to finish the dramatic look.
12. Light Auburn Hair
Why always try two common colors- brown and red? To complement the beachy waves perfectly, switch to light auburn. You’ll look completely chic and sexy in this shade.
13. Really Ronze Hair
As George Papanikolas, the celebrity hairstylist of Matrix StyleLink told Good Housekeeping, “Ronze is a mixture of bronze brown and copper-red.” The shimmery effect of this new summer hair color trend will keep you inspired all year long.
14. Carob Hair
Ultra-rich and a mix of black and brown, this is one of the hair colors that require low maintenance. The best way to get this color is by using a semi-permanent hair dye.
15. Warm Chocolate Tones
With a deep brown undertone, get a clear shine glaze or lowlights. Try a “gloss” treatment at home and add depth by painting on thin lowlights a shade darker than your base or look for a color like “chestnut” or “caramel “.
16. Baby Blonde
Try baby blonde if you want to go light without verging into the full-on platinum territory. This shade is extremely light and makes you resemble a blonde girl.
17. Warm Dimension
On the roots and ends of your hair, add varieties of warm shades. This looks superb and pretty as both colors are on the warm sides. Here’s ash blonde hair with platinum lowlights.
It is fun to play with color during the lockdown period which is known as quarantint. Play with bold shades, those who are still working from home. The easiest one to DIY is Pink, but for summer purple or blue looks the best.
19. Glowy Apricot
Want to refresh your red color after quarantine? To get a breath of new life in your faded red hair, go for a bright, sunny shade this summer as this color works great on red. Ask your stylist for a light auburn hue with peachy tones for this similar shade.
20. Sandalwood Strips
Without an extreme change, if you want to add dimensions to your curls, this color works great for those having thicker dark hair. These sandalwood strips give separation to highlights creating beautiful and natural textures.
21. Lots of Color for Summer
Get a bigger change in your hair color by applying two to three bright colors. Being at home is safe for playing with different colors such as purple, pink, and even green which you never have thought before.
22. Mermaid Hair Shades
From last year till now, we have seen bolder shades of various hair colors – pink, green and purple. To uplift everyone’s mood and to have fun, go for mermaid hair shades.
23. One – Dimension Hair Color
To give your hair dimension, we normally prefer highlights and lowlights. But people who can do colors themselves at home, mostly select a one-dimension color.
24. Caramel Highlights
In summer, when we’re under the sun, our hair naturally gets a bit warmer. But most often being at home you can highlight your hair. If salons are open in your area, then try for caramel brown so that it can make your hair color look luxe but still natural.
