Hair Colour Trends To Look Out For

Taking inspiration from those with a natural white streak that frames their face. People are making the mallen streak more wearable. Their subtle take on the naturally white mallen streak is to highlight the hair that frames their face.

2. Opalescence

Blend a soft mix of pinks and purples together to create this dreamy rainbow opal shade. You can take this trend in a more muted silver direction or a slightly more rainbow one. Try this one if you’re looking for something a bit more than a pastel dye job but don’t want to go full bright unicorn.

3. Rose Brown

Remember rose gold hair? We’re introducing you to rose brown. One for those who don’t want to go lighter but still want to add some warmth to their darker locks. Again, you can go a lot more subtle or crazy with this trend. Add just a slight smoky purple/pink tint to your hair or go all out.

4. Shadow Hair

Looking for that low maintenance blonde? We’ve got you. Not only is shadow hair low maintenance but it offers a more multi-dimensional colour. If you want something a little more natural, the combination of highlights, lowlights and babylights alongside the shadow root creates a beautiful colour that isn’t flat. The addition of a shadow root means you can even go 4-6 months without a touch up (depending on your maintenance preference) – amazing right? This is one of our favourite hair colour trends.

5. Gem Roots

Completely bucking the shadow root trend we’ve got gem roots taking Instagram by storm. Omitting colour from the lengths but adding it into the roots, why not? We love this unique hair colour trend! Of course it comes with a little more maintenance but it’s worth it to make such a vibrant statement. Go as pastel or as bright as you want with this trend.

6. Strawberry Blonde

Strawberry blonde is copper’s blonde sister. The lighter companion is being made cool again by Emma Stone. There was a time where no one wanted to be strawberry blonde (for the fear of being called ginger). We think it’s super sophisticated and a nice warmer twist on a simple blonde for the summer!

7. Faded Pastel

Pastel hair has been around for years now, so what’s the 2019 update on this pretty look? Faded. The washed out look gives the hair a more lived in cool girl vibe. It’s more of a wash of colour rather than a full saturated pastel. A little less commitment comes with this lighter hue.

8. Cool Brunette

Emily Ratajkowski shows us how to wear brunette in 2019. Forget mousy browns, this ashy and cool (in every sense of the word) brown is what you should aim for when updating your brown this year. The subtle highlights add depth and dimension to the hair keeping it fresh and looking natural.

9. Living Coral

Pantone’s colour of the year for 2019 is Living Coral and we’ve seen it crossover into the hair world too. Julia Roberts updated her blonde locks to this coral hue, and we’re living for it. It’s not quite a pastel shade and it’s a little more than a strawberry blonde. The perfect unique inbetween.  

10. Jet Black

Made popular by a certain Kardashian/Jenner family this dark hue isn’t going to go out of style anytime soon. Sophisticated and sexy, everyone wants to give the sleek jet black look a go. If it’s good enough for Kim, it’s good enough for us right?
