7 Hot Hair Colors to Try This Summer ...


Ravishing red, punky purple, cool ice blonde;

there are so many colors around how do you know which hair colors to try this summer?

If you're the kind of person who loves experimenting with new looks, the good news is that anything goes at the moment, and there are some gorgeous hair colors to try this summer which will really liven up your look!

Just a word of warning though;

for really drastic changes, it's always best to see a professional.

1. Ombre Hair

Ombre or dip-dye is still a top trend and if you're looking for hair colors to try this summer you can create natural ombre or a wilder look.

I love this ombre look which was created by a natural brunette after dying her hair at home with Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL in Real Red.

This is probably pretty damaging for your hair, so you may want to seek advice from your stylist or an advisor at a store such as Sally's before you try it at home!

Of course, you can use any color you choose, from a subtle brown and caramel ombre to wild colors!2

2. Intense Auburn

During the summer months, darker haired girls may want to lighten their color slightly.

Whilst bleach can be damaging to hair, using a permanent color which lifts your natural shade and adds plum or red tones can be less damaging and will leave your hair soft and shiny.

I love this color by Garnier Nutrisse which leaves a burgundy sheen on natural dark hair.

3. Ravishing Redhead

Red is one of the hardest hair colors to maintain as it fades so fast, and you need to know about your skintone to ensure you choose the right shade of red for you if you're dying your hair at home.

Girls with 'cool' tones in their skin look best in deep blue-toned reds such as burgundy or dark cherry, whilst 'warm' toned women can get away with lighter auburn and copper shades (think Julianne Moore or Christina Hendricks).

Whichever shade of red you choose, it will take some work to keep it looking beautiful!
