If you want to look like you’ve been soaking up the sun all summer long, then going two or threes shades lighter than your natural shade is the perfect way to uplift your hair colour. If you have naturally dark hair, then bronze ombre will look amazing!

But if you’re feeling a little unsure of which colour will suit you best, consult your stylist, as he/she will be able to advise you on the best colour match for your natural base and skin tone. Credit: @marleylove_r

Colouring your hair in summer is all about going lighter and brighter. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that one of this season’s hottest hair colour trends is baby blonde.

If you’re reluctant to commit to a solid colour change, try strategically placing blonde highlights around your face and crown, as it’s the perfect way to invest in this trend without going all the way. Credit: @volkanhazirci
