Basic balayage, rainbow-hued hair, and all-over one color—step aside. Spring has sprung and so have a slew of spirited colors we can’t wait to try. From iridescent highlights to bronze bronde and spicy watermelon pink, expect to spy these seven spring 2017 hair color trends everywhere.
1. CANDIED PECAN
Who says brunettes can’t have that blonde kind of fun? Celebrity colorist Ryan Pearl from Cutler Salon NYC infused a deep brown with hints of pecan, ensuring to frame the face for added depth.
2. GEM TONE HIGHLIGHTS
Last summer saw a spike in gem tones, but they’ve stepped up in a subtle yet sexy way. Cherin Choi from Benjamin Salon Arts District in LA heightened our standard of highlights when she made magical iridescent icicles out of them.
3. BRONZE BRONDE
Glazed donuts don’t have anything on this bronze bronde (brown + blonde) by celebrity colorist Tauni from 901 Salon in West Hollywood.
4. STRAWBERRY BALAYAGE
A dimensional strawberry blonde like the one celebrity colorist Lori Goddard gave Kiernan Shipka is a breath of fresh blonde for babes who want a break from sun-kissed.
5. XL ROOT
Gone are the days when grow-out on blondes was looked down upon. Now, a lot of root makes a ravishing platinum. Take it from Erycka Ferreti at Ramirez Tran Salon in LA, who blended a dark root with bangs for a statement-making contrast. We predict XL roots are about to be one of the cool girl frontrunners when it comes to spring 2017 hair color trends.
6. HONEY BRUNETTE
Anja Burton at Ramirez Tran Salon makes a drizzle of honey look divine. Brunettes looking to add dimension, take note—a splash of bleach bears beautiful results.
7. SPICY WATERMELON
Hot pink, been there. Pastel pink, done that. Spicy watermelon? Megan Schipani from Alchemy Hair Salon in Maryland just did that. The vibrant hue has tropi-cool written all over it and is sure to be one of the mega spring 2017 hair color trends.
