Thinking about switching up your hair color? Summer is the perfect time to play with highlights, bright colors, and warm tones. May is coming to an end, so if you haven’t decided which color to try this season, we’re here to offer you a dose of summertime hair color inspiration!

Shadow Roots

Got naturally dark roots and dyed blonde hair? Shadow roots could be the summer look for you. This is a low-maintenance way to create gorgeous dimension in your hair. It also makes transitioning from your natural shade look a lot more natural. Balayage and ombre have been in style for the last decade. Shadow roots are a fresh, modern take on the look. And if that’s not enough to convince you, shadow roots allow you to wait several months before retouching your roots! It’s the perfect look for the busy woman who just can’t be bothered with upkeep.

Copper Red

For those who want something truly warm, try copper hair. This rich, glossy shade beautifully catches the rays of the sun and comes in a variety of shades. Some shades look more brown or blonde, while others are monochromatic. Copper can be blended into a balayage, woven in as baby lights, or used as an all-over color. Warm up your dark hair color with copper or add brilliant dimension to blonde hair with subtle copper highlights. It’s a great way to create that effortless, sunkissed glow everyone wants in the summertime.

Rose Gold

Yes, rose gold is still trending. And yes, we’re still huge fans. Say hello to the warm weather with this beautiful pink hue. And don’t worry, you can still try out this trend even if you aren’t a blonde. Rose gold looks gorgeous on brunette, bronde, and strawberry blonde hair. Rose gold’s lasting power has proved that it’s more than just a passing trend. It’s a feminine, fun color that’s here to stay for a while.

Chocolate Brown

If you want a summertime color change but don’t necessarily want to go blonde, you’re in luck. Rich, chocolate brown hair is one of summer 2019’s ‘it’ shades and we are here for it. This shade is glossy, dimensional, and looks stunning with any skin tone or eye color. Whether you want to go from blonde to brown or lighten up super dark hair, this lustrous brunette color is to die for.

Ice Blonde

Don’t be fooled by the name, this frosty trend is going to be hot for summertime! Icy blonde is one of those powerful hair colors that always makes a statement. Just keep in mind that it will require bleach, which means you’ll have to be vigilant with your hair care routine to prevent damage. To keep breakage at bay from the get-go, chop off some hair and rock an icy blonde bob.
