From hair to nails, beauty trends are constantly evolving—one minute, cool tones reign supreme, the next minute, warm shades are commanding the most attention. But, what about pastels? Pastels offer the best of both worlds: They’re more wearable than other bolder fashion shades, but they’re also a fun, flirty and playful way to mix up your look. So, the question remains: Should you give pastels a try this season? Check out four of our favorite pastel looks at the moment and decide for yourself.

Lavender Frost

According to Pantone’s Fall/Winter 2018 NY Fashion Week report, lavender is the leading pastel shade for the season. One easy way to give the soft hue a more winter-ready feel? Mix in soft hints of silver, white and gray tones for an icy look.

A soft lavender manicure looks equal parts feminine, flirty and playful. Give the shade a wintery feel by adding icy blue gems or hints of metallic shimmer.


Dusty Rose

Millennial pink was so 2017. This season, opt for a pink hue that has warmer tones. Think: mauve, rose gold and terra cotta.

Who says light pink nails have to be boring? Spice up a neutral look with chunky glitter, a velvet top coat or pearl embellishments.


Sterling Silver

Silver or light gray hues are always a safe bet during the wintertime. Ideal for platinum blondes looking to add a hint of color to their locks, the cool tones promise to look sleek and chic all season long. Be sure to ask your stylist about the best ways to transition to this style and pick up a color shampoo and conditioner, like Redken Color Extend Graydient Shampoo and Color Extend Silver Conditioner, to keep those silver shades looking icy!

Glittery half moons and a subtle marble pattern instantly glam up any muted gray hue.


Iced Blue

From navy to cobalt to sapphire, blue hair is definitely having a major moment. If you’re not ready to take the leap to a brighter shade, test the waters with a soft, icy blue hue. (Sense a theme this season?) Opt for subtle hints of silver to achieve a rich, multi-dimensional look.

Finally, a manicure that would make even Elsa from “Frozen” jealous! If you’re feeling icy blue hues this season, play around with chrome shades and chunky glitter to create a look fit for an (ice) queen.
