In the spring, color is everywhere and everything is fresh and new. The grass gets greener, the tulips and hyacinths bloom in dizzying shades of color, and the gray doldrums of winter are reborn into gorgeous sunsets and a waking world. The same should be true for your hair! After a long winter locked uptight, it is time to let your color shine! FHI Heat has compiled a list of the hottest color trends for spring 2022. These will help you look and feel more lively, and by extension, will make your skin and eyes and smile look even brighter too.
And remember, when you’re coloring your hair (especially when you are going lighter), you want to make sure you’re using a heat protectant. Stylus Hair Care is nourishing and thermal-protectant for your newly colored locks!
So many curls, so little time. If you have been blessed with a beautiful head of curls, this spring you can help them spring into action with the help of some well-placed chunky highlights. Curls are definitely in, and Hollywood hairstylists are saying that enhancing natural curls and layering will make your curls even more dynamic. If you are really brave, try chunky blond highlights on a darker base. Blogger Celeste Van Joost shows off her luxurious curls with vibrant chunky blond highlights that make her look like a million bucks.
If the thought of red intrigues you but you are not ready to go all-in with auburn, try a mahogany blond to give yourself the best of both worlds. Experts are careful to explain that it doesn’t go all the way to strawberry blonde, but this mahogany blond tone has more depth of color. In the case of Sydney Sweeney, her color adds a warm peach tone which makes her eyes pop and gives her skin a healthy glow. The rose accent with the gold and copper elements make this the perfect warm color for spring.
Although it sounds counterintuitive, many stars are deepening their locks this spring, and going with a brunette color, darkening their previous blond. Brunette adds warmth and intensity to previously lighter hair, and can really change the way that you look. Bachelor alum Amanda Stanton is letting the warm brunette tones wash over her previously blond hair, and fans are loving the new look on her.
Speaking of blond, this spring features a warmer take on the platinum blond of the past. The warmth in this bright, one-tone blond avoids both gray and white and takes on a ’90s supermodel look. Hairstylists will create this glow by lightening your hair to all one shade. Emma Roberts is a good example of someone who sports this look well, the blond glow highlighting her eyes and smile.
You may have never wanted your hair to match your handbag before, but now is the time to get a gorgeous rich tan tone like a Louis Vuitton bag. Celebrity hairstylists are swearing by this trend for spring, and Karlie Kloss is a beautiful example of the trend at work. This look works best with long flowing hair that has the shine and length to show it off. This is a medium brown with a warm coffee tone.
The old saying says that blonds have more fun, and the truth of the matter is that blonds do have a lot of fun, and because of that, blond highlights are definitely here to stay! The celebrity stylists ensure that they avoid a brassy look by not coloring a base lighter than two shades. This honey blond look is being made famous by Shakira. Chrissy Teigen also made this subtle change this spring. Natural, warm, and matching all skin tones, try this yourself to spread some warmth this spring.
There is nothing subtle about going black this spring, but it is still as popular as ever. For those people who want to make a bold statement, try a jet black hue or even off-black to get the look you desire. Billie Eilish has gone from platinum back to black for the spring, and couldn’t be happier. It takes a special person to pull off black hair, but if you want to stand out from the crowd then this color is for you!
Spring is a time of new beginnings. And after all, color doesn’t last forever. Take a chance on one of these chic colors that are hot for 2022!
