If you’re anything like us, as the weather gets warmer and summer approaches, you start thinking about changing up your hair somehow. Usually, that means going lighter. And in 2017, there are so many lightening options that trump the tried-and-tested half head of foils.

Here, we round up three hair colour trends that are just starting to take off now—meaning, they’re likely to be everywhere by Christmas.

PEROXIDE BLONDE

For the woman who doesn’t do anything in halves. If you’re going to go blonde, take a leaf out of Karlie Kloss’ book and really go blonde.

Recent advances in hair colouring systems minimise the damage bleach afflicts on the hair and the scalp. “New technology provides amazing results,” says Shari, Colour Director at Barney Martin. “These include lipid rich on-scalp bleaching and lightening products to lift whilst protecting the hair and scalp, as well as Olaplex treatments to repair and smooth the surface of the hair.”

All-over pastel colouring was a trend in late 2016 and apparently, it’s not going anywhere soon. “Pink and grey are the new neutrals in hair colour,” Shari explains. “At Barney Martin, we bleach and lighten, then tone using bespoke formulas to achieve the look.”

TASSELLING

According to Aleks Abadia, Director of Hair at Esstudio Galleria, tasseling is the updated version of balayage: “It differs to balayage and hair contouring as it is applied closer to the root for a longer lasting result, with a soft transition of colour between dark and light.” This freehand method is hard to master, but when done right, stylists can seamlessly blend highlights throughout your natural colour. The trick, Aleks says, is to “make sure you feather the colour towards to roots to create a soft effect, rather than a hard line.”

COOL-TONED BRUNETTE

According to Anthony Nader from RAW Anthony Nader, this year, brunettes are getting a cool-toned makeover, a la Bella Hadid: “and yes, I mean cool.”

“Forego the warmer tones of reds and copper and ask your hair colourist to put a dash of violet or deep midnight blue in the base,” Nader says. But be warned, you might need to update your makeup kit to include cool shades of bronzer and eyeshadow too.
