Three Hair Color Trends for Summer 2013
By Marissa Hicken |
Is your color falling flat? It might be time to give your color an update. The weather is getting hotter and so are the hair color trends for the upcoming summer season.
"I predict the spring/summer of 2013 will mark the return of the natural look. Women will begin to move away from the high-maintenance colors of 2012 and into less-fussy, organic-looking locks,” says Tracey Cunningham, Redken creative consultant for color and co-owner of Meche Salon.
And what better time to experiment with your color? “Summer is the perfect time to experiment with natural colors and looks, since people tend to tone down their overall look as the weather begins to warm.” Want to pull off the same color as Cunningham’s A-list clients? Read on for her predictions for the hottest hair color trends this summer and let us know which you’ll try:
1. "Brunettes will continue to rock the ombré trend into 2013. Think Jessica Biel and her 'rose gold' tips or Lily Aldridge's natural sun-kissed ombré. The ombré is a look for all seasons, and we will be seeing a gradual, natural effect on brunettes in the spring/summer season. As far as I'm concerned there are four hair colors: Brunette, red, blonde and ombré.”
2. "Redheads will welcome the spring and summer months with more intense, dark vibrant reds. I continue to get requests for Bryce Dallas Howard's red hair, as this color creates a look, which fits with all skin tones. A darker red shade such as Bryce's is perfect for women with lighter skin tones, who are looking to change up their look."
3. "Blondes will continue to follow Gwyneth Paltrow's lead by requesting a honey-golden hue. Spring and summer is the prime time to shake up your blonde by adding some soft golden shades, that will really make your look pop."
If you’re looking to achieve one of these celebrity looks, Cunningham suggests asking your colorist about Redken’s new Chromatics Beyond Cover age defying permanent color that she uses on her famous clients. "What makes Beyond Cover so appealing to many of my celebrity clients is that it guarantees 100 percent gray coverage." And with clients like Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz, we think you’re taking the tip from the right person.
