Summer 2024 Hair Color Trends


Honey Bronde

For some, bronde is a year-round affair, for others it’s ideal as an in-between shade. If you’re just leaning into the summer season, a bronde tone might be the best gateway to lighter colors later in the season. For best results, pair your favorite lightener (our is Redken Flash Lift Power 9 Bonder Inside) with Redken Shades EQ to enhance tone, strengthen your shade and offer a shiny, glossy finish. If you’re dealing with excess damage or simply want a frizz-free finish, pair with Acidic Bonding Concentrate Leave-In for a great strengthened style whether you're air-drying or blow-drying. This #1 best-selling treatment, is for all hair types and can combat 1 year of visible damage in 1 use* for an 88% visual reduction in split ends*** leaving hair 10x smoother*** with 2x less breakage****, which is essential for any blonde this summer.


Butter Blonde

Butter Yellow trends have taken over the fashion world by storm, so it was only natural that this tone would make its way into beauty. When it comes to hair color this shade is translated as more butter, less yellow, but is just as dreamy. Shades EQ is the obvious choice to enhance your Butter Blonde and keep it looking perfectly neutral all summer long. For an added bonus of shine, consider working in Redken Acidic Color Gloss into your routine to ignite your inner shine. Start your shine journey with the Redken Acidic Color Gloss Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner that are great for daily use and essential for anyone with color-treated hair as they extend color vibrancy up to 32 washes* and increase shine. *system of acidic color gloss shampoo & conditioner.

The case has been made for bright and brighter blondes this season and this stunning luminous blonde as seen on @sabrinacarpenter by @_hairbylaurie and @scottkinghair is no exception. While the bespoke tone is ideal for a truly magnificent color, the upkeep is also important. Once the shade is achieved, follow up with Acidic Bonding Concentrate and Acidic Color Gloss to strengthen and repair the hair post-lightening and add a high gloss finish between touch-ups.
