Try These Hair Colors Before Summer Ends

best friends happy about their hair colour

Summer is a great time to dye your hair. Why? Because summer is bucket list time, time to cross off all those things you want to do before you kick it, and you know dying your hair every color under the sun takes up several places on that list. So, what’s it going to be this year, hologram pink? Gray matter? Violet hour? If you still haven’t made up your mind, here are some of the hottest color picks by celebrity hair stylists this season, but you better act quickly, summer won’t last long, and your roots are showing!

Neutral Blonde
If you’ve seen Nicole Kidman lately, you may notice that her skin tone is noticeably close to her hair color. That’s the neutral or nude blonde effect at work. It’s good for a subtle look, keeping the fun in blonde without the brassiness. Works great with peach-toned makeup for a natural radiance.

Cool Blonde
Cool blonde is a great way to play up those highlights and undertones. Says colorist Gion Vincent, “A lot of the new words you will be hearing when it comes to blonde this season are creamy ginger, creamy platinum ash, and smoke taupe.” Cool blonde is also a great way for loyal brunettes to get in on the blonde action.

Honey Blonde
Oh, honey. If you want to get an idea of what honey blonde looks like in action, check out Beyonce. Color consultant Tracey Cunningham says, “Baby lights weaved throughout the hair will lighten and brighten without losing dimension,” so it can handle summertime exposure to sun and chlorine like a pro. But do you really need more to recommend it thanBeyonce?

Strawberry Blond
The name alone makes you want to try this color at least once in your life. Strawberry blond is somewhat easier to wear than most traditional blondes because of its natural appearance as a highlight in most other hair colors. Says Cunningham, “The balance of red and blonde achieved through highlights and a gloss is perfect for a natural redhead of a blonde looking to experiment with a new shade of red.”

Platinum
Always a head turner, platinum is one of the more glamorous options for blondes this summer. Just remember to stop by the pharmacy to stock up on some chlorine removing shampoo when you’re picking up the touch up formulas.

Defined Highlights
The definition may be the definition of hair color this summer. Colorist Chase Kusero says, “This season it’s about dimensional color. Really warm mixed with neutrals and a lot of reflective colors and not blended, but defined placement and definition.”

Peach
Peach is the new black this summer, or should we say the new blonde? Always a great summer color, Kusero says, “It looks especially good on bronze and sun-kissed skin, plus adds warmth to any skin tone.”

Coloring Your Hair for the First Time – Vine Vera Reviews

Woman with beautifully colored short hair.

When it comes to coloring your hair for the very first time, you may be a bit nervous, very excited, and kind of unsure of what to expect.  Browsing through magazines and seeing different styles, getting gray hair, or just wanting a change can all factor into the how’s and why’s of changing your hair color – but regardless of your reasoning, Vine Vera has some tips to help you achieve a perfect look for your first hair coloring.

Choose a Color that Complements Your Skin and Eyes
One of the worst things you can do when it comes to coloring your hair is to opt for a color you love, rather than a color you love that also looks good with your skin tone and eye color. As it is with fashion, just because you love a style doesn’t mean it will work well for you. As an example, if you love platinum blonde yet have very light skin, the color could make you look completely washed out and unhealthy. Rather than choosing a color that won’t boost your beauty and may make your skin look dull, be sure to ask for advice from a professional on the colors that will work well with the tone of your skin and its undertones. You will also want something that makes your eyes pop as well.

Opt for a Semi-Permanent Color
When you dye your hair for the first time, it can be a bit of a shock. If you for some reason don’t like the color, or it isn’t as true as you would have liked it to be, opting for a semi-permanent will ensure you can fix it, dye it again soon, or change it if you don’t quite care for the color. If you decide you love it, and Vine Vera hopes you do, you can then opt for a permanent color the next time you go in for your touch up appointment. From there, you will simply need to maintain the color.

Opt for Professional Styling Services
To avoid any let downs or unhappy end results, you will want to seek the assistance of a professional color stylist. Choose a reputable salon and schedule an appointment ahead of time with  a master stylist who can help you choose the best color, best hue and tell you why they believe that color would look great on you. They won’t steer you wrong, so be sure to opt for their advice before undergoing any sort of color treatments.

Ask Questions
Naturally, you will have things you want to know before getting any type of color done. Some good questions to ask are:

  • “How long will this color last?”
  • “How can I get the most out of my color?”
  • “What products should I use to maintain my color, and which should I stay away from?”
  • “When should I come in for a touch up?”
  • “Are there any possible side effects to the dye?”
  • “Would this color work well with my skin?”

Conclusion
The beautiful thing about dying your hair is that it’s never really permanent, and you can change it any time you want to after a few weeks’ worth of time. Your hair will need at least that long when it comes to repairing itself from the damage of dyeing the hair to safely dye it again. Vine Vera wishes you all the best in getting your first color change, and we hope this article has helped to answer some questions you may have had before now.
