If there’s anything we can learn from Fashion Week, it’s that backstage stylists know the secret to showcasing the latest hair color trends: the perfect hairstyle. Think about it: How else could onlookers take note of barely-there babylights than seeing them in the face-framing pieces falling out of a messy bun on the runway? To give you some guidance the next time you’re feeling your color, we’ve rounded up the top runways styles for every shade.
Nothing shows off brightness, dimension and different tones more than a pretty plait. Whether you opt for messy, fishtail or French, braids give every strand a chance to stand out because they’re pulled together in alternating motions. To keep highlights and golden tones from turning brassy, use a toning shampoo once a week.
Smooth blowouts give brown, caramel and nearly-black hues a luminous, silk-like finish. For best results, opt for a smoothing conditioner and a leave-in treatment to lock in moisture and shine.
When your hair color is ultra-vibrant, it becomes the focal point of your look, so your style should be anything but sub-par. For maximum impact, opt for a piecey, textured and layered look that reads cool-girl chic with a modern edge. To give strands that gritty,“I’m-with-the-band” feel, work a dime-size amount of texturizing styling creme through your hands, then apply it to your mid-lengths and ends to add definition.
