Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez, we see you! Platinum blonde tresses are officially trending, and these bombshell brunettes prove that anyone can sport the icy hue.

Warm Copper

Seeing red in 2018? Warm copper is the top red hue for the New Year and it’s no wonder why—the intoxicating shade walks the line between ultra-feminine and sultry. Quick tip: Keep your skin tone in mind when selecting your shade. Medium and olive complexions look best with a blend of golden and orange hues, while those with fair skin tones can sport a vibrant blend of red tones.


Natural Balayage

Dark, nearly-black strands are so 2017. This year, it’s all about soft brown locks that look like they’ve been kissed by the sun. So what sets this style apart? It’s dark enough for the colder months, but still inviting and playful. For best results, stick with a rich dark chocolate shade as the base with hints of caramel and golden blonde. Ask your stylist to use a balayage technique to give a natural effect to your color. Stick to a few shades lighter than your base color for best results.
