It’s almost springtime, which means it’s officially time to switch up your hair color. Out with the fall tones and in with brighter springy tones. But not just any color will do this spring. You and your mane deserve the best. Here are some of the best hair colors to rock.
If you want to look Instagram-ready every day, a pastel hair hue is exactly what you need. Pastel pinks, blues, purples, and greens are eye-catching and make you look whimsical and fun - not to mention the fact that all of these colors are perfect for the spring season. Just keep in mind that hair colors like these usually require extensive bleaching, so it’s best to opt for a wig or see a colorist for a professional dye job.
Balayage is always in. It’s a mega-popular hair color technique used to add sun-kissed highlights to all hair colors. You may have had a balayage dye job in the past, but for spring, blonde balayage is in. For balayage color transformations, we recommend consulting a colorist in your area - a badly-done balayage job can ruin your hair for months.
Girls and women everywhere are going ginger in preparation for spring. The hue is light enough for the season without being overwhelming. So, if you’re looking for sort of a middle ground between the lightest of the light and darkest of the dark, mid-toned ginger may be perfect for you.
Keep in mind that the hue may not work with all skin tones - the best skin tone for ginger hair is pale with neutral undertones. But just because you aren’t pale doesn’t mean the hue won’t work for you. Give it a try and see how you like it.
Red is a more widely accepted spring hair color - it looks gorgeous against the light, airy spring landscapes. It also gives off rebellious vibes and can be worn in light, dark, bold, or muted versions to suit your personal preferences. If you’re not ready to go full-blown fire engine red, opt instead for a hint of strawberry red or choose red highlights. The great thing about going red is that you don’t have to bleach your hair to an extremely light blonde to achieve most reds. This makes this hair color easier on the hair and much more achievable.
Light brown is another excellent hair color for the spring. It’s got just the right amount of flair to set you apart. To spring up your light brown, add subtle golden highlights or lightened money pieces.
