We’re seeing a growing interest in more natural-looking hues this year. It’s the simple—even understated—but classic looks that are going to be big. So, prepare yourself for the emergence of rich browns, simple blondes, and subtle highlights as hair color trends in 2022.

Chocolate brown has always been a popular hair color for morenas, as it flatters and adds warmth to a beautiful brown complexion. This dark brown hair color is close to Asians’ naturally black hair, so it blends seamlessly with your tresses and it doesn’t require bleaching.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair color from fading by using TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo. It works by coating your strands with a waterproof film that seals in and locks the color, so it won’t be washed away by water. It helps make your hair color last for twice longer. For best results, pair it with TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Conditioner.

2. Chocolate Cherry

Meet chocolate brown’s equally stylish sister! Chocolate cherry is a dark brown hair color with hints of deep red hues. This is a good hair color choice if you want to add dimension to your hair without the typical light brown or blonde highlights.

3. Warm Ginger

If you want something bold but not too loud, try ginger hair. Leave your roots dark to add depth to your whole look while helping tone down the brightness of your ginger hair color.

4. Deep Auburn

This hair color is similar to chocolate cherry, but it has more tinges of red than brown. It also blends well with naturally dark hair, so you can wear this color as highlights or with shadow roots.

Editor’s tip: Keep your colored hair from getting dry and dull by using Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive Ultra Conditioner. It helps replenish lost nutrients to colored and chemically treated hair and leaves it vibrant and beautiful. 

5. Golden Brown

Get that fresh-from-the-beach glow with golden brown hair. This Asian hair color adds warmth to your face and complements any skin tone, so it’s a good choice for your new look this year.

6. Expensive Brunette

This pertains more to a specific look than to a specific color. Expensive brunette consists of subtle highlights that are a shade or two lighter than your natural black or brown hair. These highlights are strategically placed to create a blended, classy, and lived-in look that’s easy to maintain (and not expensive at all!).

7. Shiny Jet Black Hair

If you want to stick to your natural jet black hair, that won’t be a problem, because it’s also a trendy hair color this 2022. Nail it by making your jet black hair sleek and shiny with the right shampoo and conditioner and regular keratin treatments.

8. Cinnamon

This medium brown hair color has warm red and orange undertones. It’s a little similar to ginger, but it has more browns. Cinnamon hair color adds warmth to your skin tone, giving your cheeks a seemingly healthy flush.

9. Single-Toned Blonde

If you want to go for a light hair color this year, try icy blonde or platinum blonde. These pale blonde hair colors give you an edgy look. A word of caution though: dark, Asian hair needs rounds of bleaching to achieve these colors, so consult your stylist if your hair can be subjected to these processes.

Editor’s tip: Blonde and other bleached hair colors tend to get brassy over time, so use TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo. It has purple formula that neutralizes brassy tones, so your blonde hair stays beautiful for longer. It also has jojoba oil to keep your hair moisturized and shiny. Complement this shampoo with TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Conditioner for best results.

10. Natural Gray

With more people being interested in natural looks, gray or graying hair is becoming popular. You no longer need to have your hair colored at the salon the moment you see a gray strand. Instead, feel free to embrace your grays and incorporate them into your look.

There you go! These hair dye ideas will definitely help you update your look this year. Which hair color is your favorite? Try it now and enjoy your new ‘do.
