1. Metallic hair

I’m obsessed with the whole metallic colour trend and colour washes, like rose gold or the steely, brassy tones. – Aaron Carlo TRESemmé UK Hair Ambassador

No, don’t worry, it has nothing to do with metal-plated tresses! This luminous hair colour trend works in varying shades of pretty pastel tones to give your mane a stunning iridescent look. So don’t panic, it’s just the ultra-glossy, high-shine finish that gives your hair hue that ‘metallic’ effect. Pretty incredible, right? Credit: @saripaints

Fireworks typically conjure up images of fiery, vivid colours – so it’s no surprise that the fireworks-inspired hair trend boasts bright, blazing hues. Think orange, blue, and purple-coloured locks, mixed together on a dark base colour (to simulate the dark night sky, of course!). What you’re left with is a hair look that’ll rival even the most dazzling of firework displays! Credit: @kellymccormickhair

And the great thing is, that you can easily rock this look if you’re looking for a way to go grey gracefully, or even if you want to add a little interest to your bright, flaxen locks. So everyone’s a winner with this hot hair hue! Credit: @mikaylamber

This look is one of the latest hair colour trends to hit our Instagram feeds, and like its name suggests, it draws hue inspiration from succulents. But just what can you expect from succulent hair? Deep, leafy green tones, with highlights of complementary botanical purples, of course! And we have to say, with this look, we’re absolutely in love with the high-contrast colour combinations. Credit@shearexcitementpompano
