6 Prettiest Hair Colour Trends Actually Worth Trying in 2018
We took a a much-needed breather from platinum last year, but predict 2018 will see a steady uptick in Ice Queen–level white-blonde. At this rate, it’s safe to say this shade will carry us into the new year—and yes, we’re already thinking of that far ahead.
Not quite ready to go full-on My Chemical Romance with a single-processed black? Meet your middle ground: ash brown—the love child of deep, chocolate brown and muted, slate-gray.
Good news for your inner emo kid: Rich, jet-black hair will be covering the heads of some of your favorite celebrities this year, and we’re not just talking about Pete Wentz. The 2018 take on the trend reads less Hot-Topic-enthusiast and more badass-hair-chameleon, especially when coupled with a choppy lob (à la Nina Dobrev).
We hate to say it, but the soft, strawberry-blonde hues and rose-gold highlights of 2017 are already slipping into the ether of forgotten hair colour trends. But don’t freak, pink lovers—they’ll be replaced by deeper shades in the same family, like fiery crimson.
Warm, honey shades continue to reign as this year’s most sought-after blonde, and you’ll be seeing a spike in sun-kissed golden-ombré hues come summer. And with grungy, exposed roots still in style and acting as the ultimate grow-out disguise, blonde has never been so low-maintenance.
If the streets and runways of fashion month mean anything (they mean everything), bright lilac hues are about to infiltrate your friend group. Surprisingly, the shade is pretty easy to wear, thanks to its colour-correcting blue undertones, which give your skin an overall brighter appearance.
