As if taking cues from Spring, the season’s hair trends share a likeness with the rainbows that follow April’s showers. The enchanting time period brings with it a gentle urging to renew, refresh, and revitalize. In other words, you have every chance to try something completely different, such as an entirely new hair color.
In tune with fresh blooms, watch out for what’s ahead. We consulted with top colorists to help showcase Spring’s very vibrant palette. So what’s to come? Think a mixture of warm, natural tones that match the mood of the season and a palette worthy of ROYGBIV.
The celebrity inspiration: Jourdan Dunn
Description: Colorist Hannah Edelman from Brooklyn-based Brush in Hand said, “Floral inspiration will always define Spring trends.” She suggests veering toward the more delicate shades of pinks, violets, and blues.
Who it works for: “Pastel tones can work for anyone (even Kanye!) with the right adjustments,” she said. “Light to pale skin can rock a full head of pastel color. For medium skin tones, incorporate a brighter, richer color with pastel ends.”
The celebrity inspiration: Khloé Kardashian
Description: “Ask for balayage highlights a few shades lighter than your norm,” says Edelman.
Who it works for: Edelman suggested those with lighter skin opt for “beige roots with warm accents [that] embody the bright, warm days of Spring.” If you have honey-toned skin, she suggests golden bronde hue.
The celebrity inspiration: Kate Hudson
Description: This color blew up in 2016, but according to Edelman, it’s here to stay. It is a subtle way to try a rainbow sherbert shade without going bold.
Who it works for: This is the perfect color for blondes who aren’t ready for a huge commitment. Rose gold is an easier color for blondes because it requires a very light base — something that blondes already have.
Warm, Buttery Blond
The celebrity inspiration: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Description: Put simply, Edelman says, “The sun in shining, the days are longer, and hair should be warmer.” This look is warmer and more natural, which perfectly matches the mood of the coming seasons.
Who it works for: Edelman suggests that, because warmer hair mimics nature, it’s naturally flattering on most people. But it’s especially great for warm skin tones.
