It also means that A-listers are arriving on red carpets in style, and much to our excitement, some killer makeup looks, hairstyles and hair colors

If you love a good beauty look but typically skip the red carpet coverage don’t worry, because  we’re sharing the best hair color trends from awards show season 2022 that are bound to inspire your next hair makeover. Celebrities can’t seem to get enough of these shades and we have a feeling that you won’t be able to either. 


Buttercream Blonde

Last year might have favored cool toned blonde hair colors, like icy platinum, but this buttercream blonde is already dominating 2022. The warm, sunny shade instantly brightens the complexion thanks to how light and saturated it is. 

If you want to give it a go, you can try it at home with the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Lightest Natural Blonde

Rooted Blonde

Lived-in hair color has been trending for a while, and sporting a blonde shade with natural regrowth is a great way to try it out. To keep the roots looking natural, your best bet is to opt for balayage which is meant to create a seamless blend between your natural color and the rest of your hair. 

Black Brown

Countless celebrities have been embracing their naturally dark hair as of late, while others are paying to get the look. This ultra-rich shade is flattering on almost all skin tones and if you have light eyes, it will really make them pop. 

You can achieve a DIY black brown color right at home with the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Soft Black.

Jet Black

Jet black hair is a great option if you want a bold look that remains neutral and quite a few attendees have been showing up to awards shows with this midnight hue.

Shiny Silver 

Many of Hollywood’s elite have been embracing their silver strands for years and there are now plenty of people following in their footsteps. Gray hair with a glossy finish has been a staple on red carpets recently.

To enhance the tone of your silver shade and add some shine, try the L’Oréal Paris Le Color Gloss One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss in the silver color that matches your strands best. 

Chunky Highlights

Love it or hate it, chunky highlights are back and they’ve been spotted at awards shows pretty frequently this season. The nice part about this trend is that it’s completely customizable — you can opt for bold, contrasting highlights in whatever color you desire.
