Katy Perry hairstylesHair colors this season are taking note from the 80’s with wild streaks of fun hair colors like blue, pink and purple. These cool colors have been popping up on tons of celebrities (see Katy Perry), red carpets and runways.

For someone who wants a more classic or natural look for their hair, sun kissed highlights are always a great choice. White blonde and a glossy midnight black are also popular hair color trends this season.

HighlightsWhen it comes to dying your hair, deciding whether or not to do it yourself at home or go to a professional hairstylist depends on what you are trying to achieve. For platinum blonde or highlights, seeing a hairstylist is the best option as those styles can often go wrong. If you are dying your hair a single shade darker or covering greys, you can achieve this at home with a kit. For help coloring your hair at home, see this Home Hair Color Tips blog.

If you want bright colors like red, pink or blue, buying hair pieces are the safest solution as these colors can be unpredictable and you can get sick of them quickly. Hair pieces let you mix and match depending on your mood. You can purchase synthetic pieces or real human hair depending on your budget. Place the pieces under a section of hair so you don’t see the clip at the root. They will create a peek-a-boo hair color style and look as if they are strategically placed highlights. When you are tired of a color, try a new one!

Warm natural red hair colorFinding the right hair color for you is not an easy task. Professional stylists suggest looking at your eyes for inspiration. If your eyes have little flecks of gold or yellow, opt for warmer and more natural colors. If your eyes are bluer cooler tones suit you best. To make sure your skin tone always looks beautiful keep your hair a few shades darker or lighter so that you don’t look washed out.

This season have fun with hair colors. Whether you are keeping it natural with highlights or going glam with white blonde. Make sure you find a style that suits you and your personality the best. And don’t worry, hair color is not permanent, so if you are left with a hair disaster you know there is always a solution!
