Each season we’re privy to a plethora of new hair trends, and while some seem to go as quickly as they came, there are a few shades that linger - and it’s no wonder why! Standing the test of time, subtle pastel hues continue to become big hits each season.

As salon appointments become few and far in between, adding a touch of color is not only the best way to add interest to your style, it’s the perfect low-maintenance version of your usual creative color. Looking for a little inspiration? Take a peek at some of our favorite pastel creations.

One of the top colors to emerge [again] this season, there is just something about rosy pink hair that instantly brightens the day. While this iteration is a gorgeous transformation for pre-lightened blondes, we love the idea of adding rose hues to brunette shades as well. We love the way @uniqueartisthair paired pink with a slight shadow root for an added dose of contrast.

How to hone your hue? 

Utilizing Keune Color Chameleon, start with either Maroon, Magenta or Rose and add Clear to pastelise your color to perfection. With so many ways to customize your color, you can tailor the tone to your client’s exact preferences.

Last season, we saw “blorange” just about everywhere, which is where the new peach shades stem from! A more subtle take on the trend, this shade gently transitions from roots to ends to create a more natural variation with intense interest. 

Who’s this shade for?

Peach tones are great for anyone looking to warm up their shade. From creating an undertone with brunettes to transforming blondes or deepening redheads. For best results, start with Color Chameleon in Orange and consider adding Red or Yellow to tailor the shade and Clear or Dark to perfect the level.

While most shades are warming up this season, it’s always a great idea to have a cool option as well. On the cooler side without being cold, lavender is a great way to upgrade blonde and brunette shades. While we love this shade as an all-over option, playing with placement to create a color melt or dip-dyed ends is also a great idea. The best part? As lavender washes out, it will leave strands perfect toned for the next It shade of the season. 

Where to begin?

Start with Lavender Color Chameleon and add Maroon or Blue to create a bespoke shade. For pre-lightened blondes, we highly recommend adding Clear to pastelise while Dark is the obvious choice for brunettes needing a deeper shade.
