11 Celebrity Hair Trends and How To Make Them Work For You

11 Celebrity Hair Trends and How To Make Them Work For You

Now is the time to embrace a change.

By Emmy-Lou McKean | 25th October 2017

As we pack away our winter threads and welcome the warmer weather, the arrival of a new season also sees us welcome new fashion choices, restaurant and rooftop bar options, and of course, hair colour options. With the silly season about to kick off, there is no better time to start looking to new celebrity hair trends for a little inspo to get us excited for a hair transformation just in time for summer.

If you’re looking to go dark, light, somewhere in-between or make a statement with a bright new colour, the celebrity hair looks ahead will help you find what hair colour will work for you this summer.

Dark Choc Brown | Vanessa Hudgens

When it comes to sass and all around style, there is no question that Vanessa Hudgens has it all in spades. Her signature dark choc locks may have been chopped and changed frequently, but her high-shine hair is always rich in colour. They say that dark shades are reserved for the cooler months, but rules and meant to be broken and breaking them has never looked so damn good.

Soft Platinum | Karlie Kloss

She may be a new member of the platinum blonde club, but it’s clear that Karlie hasn’t compromised the health of her hair for the sake of a trend. Maintain your crisp blonde with colour-appropriate shampoo and conditioner. Pravana Perfect Blond shampoo is a fabulous product to keep your colour in check. Another way to protect your hue is to refresh with a Pravana Express Toner in the salon in between colour services. It works to keep your tone vibrant and leaves your hair beautifully silky.

Peachy | Busy Phillips

One of the biggest colour trends of the season has moved from pastel pink and reached a covetable peachy tone. If high maintenance hair isn’t your kind of thing, this trend is probably best left to the colour lovers. Keeping this colour more peachy and less brassy will require a little extra TLC and regular salon visits to ensure it stays fresh and bright all summer long.

Soft Brunette | Selena Gomez

This colour is sported by many celebs and is the perfect multi-dimensional brunette shade that can elevate any look. The best part? It couldn’t be more low maintenance. If you have naturally dark hair or are looking to brighten things up after going a deeper tone over winter, using both low-lights and highlights creates a soft brunette tone that is the perfect way to lighten your locks for summer.

Creamy Blonde | Margot Robbie

If one thing is true, it’s that Margot Robbie always rocks the most covetable blonde locks. Known for her platinum blonde hair, the Aussie actress has recently softened her colour with a subtle colour melting. Colour melting or blushing, is a hair colouring technique that can be used on all shades of colour as it blends your highlights and lighter hair with your base colour to avoid any harsh lines. It’s all about that blended soft transition.

Rose Quartz | Ariana Grande

This month, Ariana Grande switched up her traditionally long brunette mane for cool toned locks with a rose quartz hue. Rather than committing to a colour, a major celebrity hair trend that has evolved over the years is the grey tones. If grey isn’t your thing, but you like the look of icy tones, talk to your colourist about how your hair would handle a rose quartz toner. Fluid The Color Salon are huge fans of experimenting with all the new season toners, which gives you so many options to have a fresh look for summer.

Jet Black | Kendall Jenner

If the thought of highlights or lowlights doesn’t sound all that appealing, never fear. Kendall Jenner has officially made the single process of colouring your locks jet black one of the biggest hair trends of the season. The celebrity hair trend of blunt chopping your hair is still on the rise and a long bob in a dramatic shade has never looked chicer.

Icy Bronde | Paris Jackson

This is the ultimate celebrity hair trend that is not only easier to maintain but will give you the look that you’re not trying hard at all. Ensuring this colour grows out properly over summer, be sure to visit the salon around the eight-week mark for a trim and tone (or even a gloss treatment). This will help to avoid your hair looking tired and brassy.

Ocean Grey | Kim Kardashian

There is no question that Kim Kardashian is the ultimate hair colour chameleon. Whether it’s a wig or not, the girl can work any colour and her current ocean grey locks are giving us serious summer vibes. This colour is icier than the usual taupe grey tones and is definitely the kind of look that will require a fair bit of maintenance. But, we’ll be the first to admit the effort is worth it.

Strawberry Blonde | Evan Rachel-Wood

Embracing your natural colour and enhancing it with soft strawberry blonde highlights would have to be one of the more effortlessly chic celebrity hair trends of the minute. Think Nicole Kidman, Emma Stone and Sienna Miller. Embrace this trend by taking your natural locks and giving them a little extra dimension with highlights and a regular high-shine hair treatment.

Rockin’ Red | Isla Fisher

Whether you’re a natural redhead or looking to transform your blonde to a fiery shade, red is back and hotter than ever. But, did you know that red hair colour fades faster than any other hue? This means that at-home maintenance is a must. If you want to make your colour pop this season, it’s important to remember to use a treatment product to keep it vibrant and fresh. Fluid The Color Salon are experts when it comes to bright, enviable hair and suggest their red-headed clients use Pravana Nevo Colour Treatment to keep their colour on point. If your colour needs a little extra TLC, the Fluid team can custom mix a refresher to match your colour perfectly for an instant refresh!
