Spring is the perfect time of the year for a change. Whether that’s a deep clean of your home, a clear out of your wardrobe, or a fresh new colour for your hair – this year the hair dye trends are hotting up as fast as the weather. From pretty pastels to cool-as-an-April-breeze blondes, there are plenty of exciting new options to choose from. So, without further ado, here are the hair colours springing into action for 2019.
If you’re all about the ‘go big or go home’ life, these daring all-over colours will be just your cup of tea.
Muted, pretty shades are always a fashion favourite in spring, so it’s no wonder they’ve migrated to our hair as well. But if 2018 was all about vibrancy, this season’s shades are considerably softer and more gentle. Think baby blues or dusky pinks and you’ll have the right idea.
Forget bottle blonde, spring 2019 hair is all about the butter blonde. Less harsh than last winter’s ice cold tones, this blonde is warm and natural and should suit a whole range of skin tones.
Taking yet more inspiration from nature, spring brunettes should have the glossy, rich shades of polished wood. Multi-tonal dyes with a few subtle highlights give this look a healthy, glowing finish — perfect for thickening up fine hair.
The Autumn/Winter catwalks saw plenty of deep, brassy copper tops, but this year’s is altogether more light and bright. This is a great colour for warming up the skin and will have you looking a pretty penny in no time.
If you don’t want to go for the full copper, strawberry blonde is a gentler way to experiment with red. The colour is completely versatile so you’ll be able to find the right shade for your skin tone, plus it’s the perfect sun-kissed look for the warmer weather.
Of course there’s nothing more chic than a bit of subtlety, is there? If you don’t fancy a whole new colour, try one of these glam highlights instead.
If you just want to freshen up your look without a complete overhaul, these near-white highlights are just the ticket for brightening up your blonde. Edgier and more dynamic than winter’s plain icy styles, this is a look that can be both pretty and cool.
The new ombre, also known as pony lights, is very much a subtle affair. Rather than applying a balayage to the whole head, these ombre strands add depth and light where it counts. Ask your stylist to add the lightest colour around your face for an instant brightening effect.
