Sunshine is one of the easiest ways to lift the mood after a long, dark winter. This change of mood is inspiring and makes this one of the most popular times of year to be creative with hair colour. So, if you want to make a statement and dye your hair, we have pulled together the most popular hair colours for this spring and summer to give you loads of inspiration and colour ideas to transform your locks.
A bold and beautiful look can be found in tie-dye sensation. This rainbow of colour is best showcased on an ash blonde base. However, highlights will also stand well against darker hues if you prefer to stay on the dark side. Add a myriad of colours, or go for three or four that compliment each other well to create the perfect tie-dye finish.
Be a mermaid
This works best on longer cuts, and when done well, it is an amazing look. Mermaid locks are bang on-trend this season. Go for a dark base and create a colour burst as the look progresses to the ends. Purple and turquoise are the best hues for this effect, so pick one and create this statement look that will make heads turn.
Beachy blonde with dark roots
Sunkissed and straight off the beaches of California, this is another look that will make it big this summer. Bleached blonde length with dark roots gives a classic but stunning look. Just make sure the blonde is bright, not brassy and take care of your bleached locks in the sunshine.
Red is in this season but stick with auburn shades if you want to go for spring/summer on-trend hues. Red locks work well on pixie cuts and choppy bobs. The fiery shades are perfect with sunglasses and striking lippy and are sure to turn heads when you strut your stuff in the sun.
This look reverses the mermaid styling and works well on hair that sits below the shoulders. Start with the darker pinks on top - make sure it is not flat colour but more colour washed on a blonde base. Tone down the pink and soften it up as the dye reaches the tips of your hair.
Delicious caramel and honey
If you have darker locks and want to maximise the wow factor, why not have some caramel and honey highlights added. This creates depth and warmth to any style and works beautifully with curls.
Denim is making a statement on the runways, as collections for this summer are unveiled. Plus, as it's one of the most prominent colours in fashion, there is a growing trend of denim blue hair. If you’re feeling brave, work with various shades with plenty of graduation of colour, and you will have a winner.
Balayage is a hair technique that never goes out of fashion. Make the most of natural colours with the clever addition of high and low lights that create a stunning look.
