The Hottest Hair Color Trends for Summer 2016

Posted: Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Now that Memorial Day 2016 is one for the books, we can happily say that the long-awaited summer has “unofficially” arrived. Not only do these warmer months and longer days help to boost our spirits, but they are also a great excuse for us to brighten up our locks. Are you thinking of changing up your hair color this summer? Consider one of these hottest hair color trends.

Pewter Blonde


This new hair color trend adds more coolness and edge to traditional platinum blonde hair by adding a metallic silver tint. Pewter blonde works well at many levels but we recommend blending light and dark versions of the color for a more modern and monochromatic effect. This shade is definitely attention-grabbing and may look best on ladies with olive skin tones. The upkeep on this look is a trip to the salon every three weeks. Want to add extra edge to this look? Try growing your roots out a little and wait four to five weeks in between touch ups.  Your stylist will recommend the best formulas to use on your hair – ask them about the pewter blonde hue today!

Desert Rose


Another way to lighten up your hair without going blonde is by opting for this gorgeous reddish-brown color seen on Emma Roberts. Having made the change in time for a debut at Coachella, Emma Roberts looks beautiful with this warm tone, aptly called “desert rose.” The Scream Queens starlet has been an inspiration for hair before (remember when she chopped all her hair off for a gorgeous lob, and then transitioned from brunette to blonde?) – and this latest and trendy hue will be no different. There is sure to be an influx of requests for all-rose-gold-everything in the coming summer months.  Ask your stylist today about how to make the transition to “desert rose.”

Auburn Balayage


We’ve talked about our affection for balayage before but this hot new auburn-hued balayage has us head over heels in love! Shown here on Selena Gomez, the 2016 summer hair trend has a perfect sun-kissed look. Paired with her cascading layers, her auburn balayage adds great dimension to her hair. To achieve this look, streaks will be carefully painted on your hair at mid-length, giving you a totally organic look. Speak to your stylist today to learn what tones would work best for your skin tone.
