Color Trends

Arguably the most popular look of the season, bronde is a clever mixture of blonde and brown. The look is perfect for blondes who want to go brown — but not too brown — and brunettes who want to go blonde — but not too blonde. The combination of the two colors adds dimension and richness to hair, making it look vibrant and full. This look is perfect for anyone struggling with whether to go blonde or brunette. With bronde, you get the best of both worlds.

Soft Red

There’s nothing more striking or eye-popping than red hair. But this season’s trend is turning away from loud, bold red haircolor in favor of softer, more dimensional red. To get the look, steer clear of fiery red and aim for more natural hues, like copper or golden red.

Deep Brown

Deep brown is all the rage these days. The luxurious look is classic, elegant and easy to maintain. If you have a cool skin tone with pink undertones, opt for a cooler shade of brown. If your skin is on the warmer side, with golden undertones, go with a richer, more chocolaty shade of brown.


Highlighting Hair

Straight from the head of babes, this popular highlighting technique mimics the look of children’s hair after playing in the sun. The very thin highlights are much subtler than most highlights, giving hair a lovely and natural, sunkissed look. This adorable trend is wonderfully low-maintenance and looks great with any skin tone.

Rainbow Colors

Yes, dying your hair all the colors of the rainbow is a bonafide trend this season. Its wacky popularity is at its height and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. From bright blue to soft pink tresses, this look is all about personal identity, being playful and expressing yourself. Check out Color Touch’s Instamatic Demi-Permanent for some fun color options.

Style Trends

The Long Pixie

A modern take on the classic Pixie Cut, this daring look is for all the brave risk-takers out there. With longer bangs in the front, the Long Pixie is a good choice for women who want short hair that offers a little more versatility. You can wear this look spiked up, swept over or slicked back. Any which way, you’ll look sugary with just a little bit of spice!

The Long Bob (“Lob”)

Blond Woman

This super cute look meets you in the middle when you want to grow out your bob or shorten your long hair. Cut just above the shoulders, the Long Bob (or “Lob”) is both stylish and low-maintenance. You can wear it wavy or, with the help of a straightening product like Design Essentials’ Thermal Straightening Serum, straight and sleek.

Boho Waves

Healthy Hair

This beachy, bohemian look goes great with the new retro ‘70s craze. It’s perfect for long-haired gals who don’t want to cut their hair but still want to shake things up a bit. To get these flirty, wavy locks, section off your hair and then curl each section with a curling iron. After all your hair is curled, brush it out with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to get that cutely messy and disheveled boho look. Finish by spraying curls with a strong-hold hairspray like Wella’s Firm Finishing Spray.

Another glam ‘70s look, the Fringe is back in a big way. This smoldering look entails layered hair and longer-than-usual bangs. You’re going to want to make sure your bangs cover your eyebrows and graze the top of your eyes. This angled look will make your eyes pop and is ideal for rounder faces.

Shaved Sides

This is the ultimate cut for all you daredevils out there. This punk-rock look is running amok this season, and it couldn’t be cuter. Whether you want to shave one side of your head or both, this evocative style will be a real attention-getter, in the best possible way.
