#Platinum blonde

While it may be getting warmer outside, the hair colors are getting cooler. This year experts are expecting to see more cooler tones rather than brighter tones for the summer season. And what better way to embrace this trend than with a beautiful platinum blonde. This icy blonde is perfect for the summer, however, it is very high maintenance, so keep that in mind. If you want something slightly warmer but still on the cooler side, you can always go for a buttery platinum. To create this style you need to add a subtle shadow on the roots. This will add depth and dimension to your hair.

While blondes may have more fun, it ain’t easy to be one. A beautiful blonde color requires a lot of maintenance. And if you simply don’t have the time for that, this is a great alternative! The bronde style is a beautiful mix of a light brown base with brighter blonde tones. This color offers the best of both worlds. You get a lighter color without having to maintain it as much as you would with a lighter blonde. It’s perfect if you want a sun-kissed look and goes with many skin tones.

Another great example of the cooler hue trend that is coming with summer. While chilled chardonnay is quite the cool tone, it does it in the best way possible. It’s smoky, ashy, and intoxicating. If you want something different from the classic blonde look, then this is it. It is not as bright as typical blonde hues, but rather looks more silver. The chardonnay hue looks perfect when paired with darker roots as it creates a wonderful depth to the hair.

#Money Piece Highlights

Ugh, we just love this color trend! This style is created by lightening the strands near your face, which helps to frame the face aka “the money piece”. While the strands around the face are light, the rest of the hair stays slightly darker. It’s beautiful, chocolaty, and rich. This style can be customized to compliment different skin tones and hair textures, which makes it a versatile choice. Take Beyoncé as inspiration and get these wonderful highlights done!
