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 revitalise. In other words, you have every chance to try something completely different, such as an entirely new hair colour.
In tune with fresh blooms, watch out for what’s ahead. We consulted with top colourist Emma Brown 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.
The colour: Pastels
The celebrity inspiration: Jourdan Dunn
Description: “Floral inspiration will always define Spring trends.”.
Who it works for: “Pastel tones can work for anyone (even Kanye!) with the right adjustments, Light to pale skin can rock a full head of pastel colour. For medium skin tones, incorporate a brighter, richer colour with pastel ends.”
The colour: Baby Blonde
The celebrity inspiration: Khloé Kardashian
Description: “Ask for balayage highlights a few shades lighter than your norm,” says Emma”
Who it works for: 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 colour: Rose Gold
The celebrity inspiration: Kate Hudson
Description: This colour blew up in 2016, it’s here to stay this year. It is a subtle way to try a rainbow sherbert shade without going bold.
Who it works for: This is the perfect colour for blondes who aren’t ready for a huge commitment. Rose gold is an easier colour for blondes because it requires a very light base — something that blondes already have.
