If you’re seeking a mane makeover, there are plenty of hair color trends that can make your natural hue yesterday’s news. From expensive blonde to caramel balayage highlights, all the on-trend hues will add pizzazz to your mane and won’t disappoint. However, finding the ideal hair color isn’t so black and white since you’ll need to consider which shade will look best with your skin tone and facial features.  

Fortunately, we can help out before you end up down a Google rabbit hole. If you’re a blonde baddie, foxy redhead or bubbly brunette ready to spice things up, keep scrolling for 22 best hair colors to try in 2022.

1. Expensive Brunette

By now you've probably seen this ultra-lavish hair color everywhere — from red carpets to beloved TV shows to your social media feeds. So, it shouldn't be a surprise that it tops our list of the biggest hair color trends of the year. 

According to Jonathan Colombini, L’Oréal Paris Creative Director of Style and Color, expensive brunette "refers to achieving natural and low maintenance, yet expensive-looking brown hair." Think: A rich, brown hue featuring a blend of subtle highlights and lowlights with a glossy finish. 

We recommend booking an appointment at the salon to get the perfect brown color all across your mane. 

2. Expensive Blonde

Hot off the heels of expensive brunette, expensive blonde is also taking the beauty world by storm. Like its brown counterpart, this lighter hair color is all about adding dimension and shine to create a luminous, warm blonde hue. If you want to get in on the trend, ask your hairstylist to give you a deeper hair color with subtle highlights.
