Hit the refresh button on your summer style. There’s just something about the summer months that have us craving change. We have the freedom to throw our usual styles out the window and reach for something a little more spirited. The best way to embrace this season is by opting for a brand new shade. Want to see a few of our favorites? Keep scrolling!


Sun-Kissed Strands


A post shared by Mane Addicts (@maneaddicts) on

Although opting for a sun-kissed look seems obvious during these months, it is more deliberate than ever. The return of the face frame has reached an all-time high with the “money piece”.  We love this trend for a few reasons. It can be achieved on all shades simply by lightening their natural color a few levels. It is a low maintenance option that creates a beautiful impact. Whether this is a tried and true favorite or something new, pair it with a lavender-hued shampoo to guarantee your shade stays vibrant all season long.


Platinum Is Holding Strong

Platinum shades were oh so popular this winter and aren’t going anywhere this summer. If you thought you liked the look paired with your chunky knit sweater, just think how much you’ll love it with a tan! Summer skin tones make it easier to pull off this cool shade. The most important factor is to be aware of excess damage from external factors. The sun, beach, and pool can easily cause damage and discoloration. You’ll want to schedule regular toning sessions with your stylist and use a high impact toner like Redken Color Extend Blondage Express Anti-Brass Mask.

Pastels Please


A post shared by FUCK BAD HAIR (@evalam_) on


Coral, rose, and lavender are some of the hottest hues for the summer months. Take your pick and match to your existing hair color accordingly. Brunettes can still rock a beautiful pastel tone by playing with placement and hue. If lavender is your pick, make it more “dusty” for darker levels. If you’re worried about your color fading too quickly, pair your shade with Matrix Color Lamination Spray to prolong the length of your color for up to 65 days!

Or one of the KEVIN.MURPHY COLOURING.ANGEL Treatments. KEVIN.MURPHY AUTUMN.ANGEL is the ideal pick for pastel shades with warmth. Whether rose gold, apricot or strawberry blonde shades, this formula adds brilliant shine and leaves strands with a pink peach tint.
