1. Apricot

If you love pastels and light colors, try apricot. It’s a soft and feminine color that goes well with pale and fair skin tones. A bit of bounce and volume will help the color pop. You might want to flip your hair when you blow dry to give it a boost.

2. Orange ombre

Get this ‘do by dyeing your roots orange, then let it slowly transition to your natural hair color. You can also dye the rest of your hair blonde and let orange fade to that color. This way, your hair will give off a sunset-like effect. So gorgeous!

TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask

Editor’s tip: Bleaching and frequent coloring can greatly damage hair. Bring your tresses back to life by applying TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask once a week to help replenish lost moisture and revive damaged hair.
