When the seasons change, switching up your skincare regimen and rethinking your makeup is a must, but a hair color update is also worth considering, especially as the weather warms. Look to celebrities and the Insta-famous for guidance, but consider the practical advice from pros. The resulting look can be both trendy and flattering, eye-catching and manageable.

 

Rich Brunettes
“This spring, brunettes will go richer—from chocolate brown to warm amber hues,” says Sharon Dorram, the Master Colorist at Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger Salon. Priyanka Chopra, Bella Hadid, Jasmine Tookes, and Selena Gomez have already debuted their spring hair on the red carpes. To maintain dimension, consider a slight lift. “Highlighting with amber to auburn won't create any brassy tones,” explains the colorist.

 

 

Sun-Kissed
Sun-kissed blonde: The color that looks like one has been marooned on a tropical island—not behind a desk. To get that eternal sunshine of flawless hair, Dorram suggests creating dimension with “bright flecks of baby blonde pops throughout.”

 

 

Platinum Blonde
Platinum blonde hair is still going strong. Call it the Kim K, Zoe Kravtiz, Saoirse Ronan effect. But with a platinum blonde style, it becomes that much more critical to protect your hair. “You've got to maintain the condition of your hair so that the color will look healthy and shiny rather than dull and brittle,” says Dorram. her go-to product for color-treated hair? Virtue’s Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner.

 

 

Au Natural
Let your roots —you remember, the color you were born with—run wild. “Moving into spring, we really tend to lean towards our clients' own classic beauty with a fresh styling approach,” says colorist Anthony Christiano of Anthony Christiano salon.

 

Old Hollywood Blonde
Christiano is all about the old Hollywood blonde—but with an edge. This blonde variation is more natural than platinum, but more polished than sun-kissed.(Got that?)"When blonde is pushed just a bit higher, it just brightens up the skin tone and draws attention to the eyes,” says Christiano.
