It’s only March, but 2017’s latest hair color trends have already presented themselves in full force. This year is all about warmth and comfort – something we can definitely get behind – with buttery blondes, interesting oranges and rich browns taking center stage.
Step Up Your Hair Game This Spring 2017
We’ve consulted our veteran color gurus right here at McAllister to breakdown what’s hot and what’s not for 2017:
1. Bronde Hair
Aptly named “2017’s BIGGEST hair color trend” by Instyle Magazine, “Bronde” is a happy medium between bombshell blonde and rich brunette that women can’t seem to resist. While the color is nothing new to the world of hair, it’s showing no signs of going anywhere anytime soon, with trendsetting celebs like Gigi Hadid breathing new life into the ‘do.
The trend fuses brown and blonde hues to create a sun-kissed look that instantly warms up winter-worn skin, yet won’t look out of place come spring. Bronde is universally flattering for all women as your stylist can play with levels of warm and cool tones to find the best combination to suit your skin.
2. Blorange Color!
The funkier, edgier cousin to the “Bronde” hair-do, “Blorange” (blood and orange) is the latest color craze to sweep Instagram, making it the color mix to watch this season.
Offering a fun alternative to the more subdued warm peaches, rose golds and strawberry blondes hues popular in 2016, Blorange (recently referred to as a “sunset on your head” by Refinery29) offers a beautiful shade somewhere between blonde and ginger. Its reddish undertones make it especially complimentary on fair and golden skin.
3. Hair Eclipting
A term coined by Aveda’s global artistic director for hair color, Ian Michael Black, “eclipting” translates the art of makeup contouring to the hair, using strategic color placement for added definition and dimension. And according to NYLON, it’s going to be the next ombre!
To achieve the look, stylists first color the whole head a deep, darker base, prior to artfully placing lighter highlights in strategic sections to accentuate the shape of the hair, while simultaneously contouring the face. Looking to thin out the cheeks?
A darker hue drawn down the lengths of face-framing pieces will do the trick! Rather concentrate on making your eyes pop? Nothing a bit of darker fringe can’t fix. The possibilities are endless!
