Hot Hair Colors for Summer

Celebrities like Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Lauren Conrad have all dyed their hair multiple hues. While bright pink highlights or green tips might not go over well at the office, there are more subtle ways to add color to your hair. Just follow these tips from Gocha Hawkins, celebrity hairstylist and owner of Gocha Salon.



Consider Your Skin Tone: For ladies with fair skin, pastel hues including light pinks and blues are very flattering. Medium skin tones should try to choose a color that compliments their hair; for instance, if you have reddish highlights, go for a red tone, even into the pink family. Women with dark skin can really have fun with this trend by choosing deep jewel hues like emerald and ruby.

Colorful Streaks: Streaks of bold colors are interesting and eye-catching. Focus on different areas of hair. “Zeroing in on one section is always a good way to ensure that you don’t go overboard. Try dying just the lower half of your bangs or one large strand from your ponytail for an unexpected twist.” Gocha says.

Ombre: For the ombre look, begin by sectioning hair and start applying dye from the bottom up. As you want the tips of your hair to be the most saturated with color, this is an important step to note. Keep dye on the ends for about half the time the directions suggest, and then begin dying the next section of hair. Do not remove the dye from the tips. At the end, dilute the color on the ends with water, and wash and dry. “This will create a fading effect that is attractive and magnetic,” Gocha says.
