Heat Up the Winter with a New Hair Color

Charles IferganColoring, Inspiration

Tired of the Chicago cold? Why not heat up your look with a hot, fresh spring hair color! We’ve taken a look at the latest trends pulled right from the red carpets and fashion mags this year.

Natural, almost minimalist, is the trend for both hair and makeup this season. This doesn’t mean forgoing the hair color – there are many cool shades that your colorist can help you choose from.

Here are a few hair color ideas to get you ready for spring:

Brunettes indulge this spring is chocolate. No, not the tasty stuff … the hair color. Fair or golden complexion? How about a warm milk chocolate shade while olive & red-based skin tones should embrace a deeper tone with cool undertones like mocha or espresso? No matter which end of the chocolate spectrum you’re on, it’ll be sure to add movement and texture and give your look new life.

Hey Blondies (natural or not), embrace your fabulous roots this year. Darker roots are hot for spring and let’s face it, it sure does make coloring a lower-maintenance affair! If your skin tone is neutral, opt for the nude color trend. It’ll create a great monochromatic look with rich tones that are already a fashion statement. If you’re really looking for a great new look, why not add some painted highlights to your root area to blend in your natural base and add an overall dimension that won’t go unnoticed.

Gingers, last but not least – red is still hot for spring, and with so many shades, anyone can pull it off. A copper shade works best for cool skin tones while favoring the auburn end of the spectrum for warm skin tones is recommended. Don’t forget to work in some creativity with undertones to really make a statement with your style and to show off your beautiful skin tone.
