1. Blonde

Whether you want a touch of blonde highlights or want to go full-on blonde, we say it’s a go! In terms of styles, there’s just something about wearing a braid or curls on blonde-colored hair. We love how every detail of a braid and curls registers from afar on this light hue.

Whether you’re getting this color for the fall season or not, auburn is one of those tones you can transition easily from season to season. In the spring or summer, give it a stylish update with a fun fringe.

Nope, we’re not over this trend just yet.

4. Rose Gold Hair

The great thing about trends is that they do come back again. We’re pretty sure rose gold is one of those colors we’ll see popping in and out throughout the year. During the winter season, style it with easy laid-back styles like buns, ponytails and simple blowouts. For the summer season, have fun with the look and experiment with texture.

Vibrant and fun!

5. Orange Hair

If you already have light-colored hair and want to experiment with a trendy hair color, try a gloss of any color you like. How about orange? It’s fun, vibrant and edgy. A gloss is temporary, so making the switch won’t be a long-term commitment. There’s nothing more fun than switching up your hair color every month or so with minimal to no damage at all.

6. Tiger Eye Hair

Hairstylist Corey Tuttle of Honey Artists made the case for this look. If you’re looking for inspiration for balayage brown hair colors, look no further than the tiger eye hair color. This mix of light brown and copper highlights on a dark base creates the perfect dose of dimension on hairstyles like Hollywood curls and undone waves.

7. Dark Chocolate Hair

We can give you a list of reasons to go for this deep chocolatey hue, but the main reason is simply because it’s versatile. A bonus is if you have light-colored eyes, this shade helps make them pop. Wear your sweet brown hue on a fresh blowout with a bold red lip for the perfect everyday look.

8. Black Hair

Another versatile hue, is, of course, black. When styling play up the shine factor on this classic hue. Use products like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to boost shine. This product is buildable so keep applying until you achieve the shine you desire.

9. Burgundy Hair

Not red, not purple, but the perfect mix of the two, burgundy hair is one of the best colors to have no matter the season. Style it with a sleek updo or a fun textured look.

10. Ash Brown

Ash brown has got to be one of our top favorite hair color trends for any season. If you’re not into a hair color that gives off a lustrous shine, go for this muted look. Style it with hairstyles like disheveled updo styles and slept-in hair waves.
