Here are some of the top spring hair colour trends that can revamp your look all season long:

Natural balayage:

Embrace the beauty of natural hair with balayage techniques that create subtle, sun-kissed highlights and lowlights throughout your locks. This freehand colouring method allows for a seamless blend of colours, resulting in a soft and natural-looking effect that mimics the way the sun naturally lightens hair over time. Whether you prefer soft caramel highlights or sun-drenched honey tones, balayage is a versatile and low-maintenance option for spring.

Pretty pastels:

Embrace the dreamy allure of pastel hair colours this spring, as soft shades of pink, lavender, and blue take centre stage. These ethereal hues add a touch of whimsy and romance to your hair, creating a mesmerising effect that’s both delicate and enchanting. You can opt for a full head of a pastel colour or subtle highlights to make a statement wherever you go.

Metallic accents:

Add a touch of glamour to your locks with metallic accents that shimmer and shine in the sunlight while giving an edgy and unconventional style this spring. Whether you opt for silver streaks, rose gold highlights, or platinum tips, metallic hair colours add a touch of luxury and sophistication to your look. 

Bold and bright:

Make a statement this spring with bold and vibrant hair colours that command attention and exude confidence. With options like peach, apricot, and strawberry copper, embrace the warmth and richness of these hues for an eye-catching look.

Buttercream blonde:

This is all about a mix of warm and cool blonde highlights on a medium blonde base, giving your hair a playful and dynamic feel. Picture the shades of butter, from sunny yellow to creamy tones and even a hint of toasted brown, and you will appreciate the vibe of buttercream blonde.

Sun-kissed blondes:

Channel the effortless beauty of sun-kissed strands with shades of blonde that mimic the natural highlights of summer. Opt for soft, golden tones that add warmth and dimension to your hair, evoking visions of long days spent basking in the sun. From honey blondes to buttery highlights, these light and luminous hues are perfect for brightening up your look and embracing the spirit of the season.

Rooted and lived-in:

Embrace the effortless chic of rooted and lived-in hair colours that offer a low-maintenance approach to colour. This trend features soft, natural-looking roots that seamlessly blend into lighter ends, creating a modern lived-in effect that offers a relaxed and carefree vibe that is perfect for spring.

Rich red and copper tones:

Set hearts ablaze with rich reds and fiery copper tones that evoke the warmth and passion of the season. From vibrant crimson to deep mahogany, red hair colours add depth and intensity to your look, making a bold and striking impression. For those seeking a more subtle approach, copper tones offer a softer alternative that still packs a punch with their warm, golden undertones.
