There are two Pantone Colors of the Year for 2016. One is rose quartz and the other is serenity. As beautiful as its name suggests, serenity is a cool and tranquil shade of pale blue. It is described as “weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.” If you’ve already embraced the unnatural hair color trend or are ready for a change here’s serenity hair inspo that won’t leave you feeling blue.
