1. Ashy Brown Sombré

If you like to keep things on the cool side, why not try a beautiful ashy sombré? This blends two hair colors for spring so you can wear a warmer tone near your roots and ashy gray throughout your ends. We love to keep this nice and subtle, so the transition from warm to cool tones is totally flawless.

2. Nude Hair

We’re still in love with the idea of nude hair this year. Nude hair is such a fun concept because it works on literally everyone. All you need to do is bleach or dye your hair to a shade near your skin tone. If getting nude hair is going to take a lot of bleach, we recommend super hydrating shampoos. They’ll keep your dyed hair nice and soft! Use the Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Care Shampoo and Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Care Conditioner to keep your hair clean and hydrated and your color protected.

We love this brighter shade for redheads. Keeping the color rooted in brown makes sure that this auburn shade doesn’t read as ginger. It also helps to make this bright shade more flattering for more people!

There will always be a place for a creamy warm brown hair color. It works all year long because it looks so natural! This warmer brown tone is great for natural brunettes because it’s a great way to add a little zest to your natural color.

5. Strawberry Blonde

This strawberry blonde shade straddles the lines between brown, auburn and blonde. It’s so interesting and multi-toned! This glorious shade deserves to be shown off with a bouncy blowout. You can even fake a salon blowout at home! We suggest prepping your hair with TRESemmé One-Step 5-in-1 Smoothing Cream. It literally makes your hair shine and glimmer in the light.

7. Peachy Pink

If bright shades are your thing, then you’ve got to try out this gorgeous pastel peachy pink. It’s basically unicorn hair! Getting your hair to stay a bright pastel can be a little tricky, especially if you need to do a lot of bleaching to make your hair light enough. Make sure you baby your pink locks by using a moisture-rich mask for color-treated hair, like Suave Hydrating Coconut Conditioning Mask.
