Hair color trends are heating up this season as hair gurus and social medialites alike have chosen a palette of warm tones to accompany us into the summer months. The onset of Blorange, Sunset, and Peach Champagne colors have led the way to the latest trend development – RED!
This new RED however, is a revised version of a past favorite. Techniques for color placement will play a huge roll in determining hues and transitions from prior shades; we will see more gold tones appear in color formulations as well, leading us into the warm coppers.
Copper Cream is one of our favorite ways to wear this new trend! For lighter levels it is a great transitional color, giving off a hint of red without overpowering the tonality.
