Tired of your natural hair color? Maybe brown just isn’t cutting it anymore, or perhaps you want to take your strawberry blonde hue to the next level. Whatever the case may be, finding your ideal hair color isn’t always so black and white. You have to give a lot of consideration to what shade will look best with your skin tone and features and what kind of maintenance will be required for upkeep. Need some inspo? Here is your guide to just about every kind of hair color trend so that you can make an informed decision the next time you dye your mane.

Ashy Brown Sombré

During the spring and summer months, you might wonder how you can maintain a cool vibe while embracing the warmth. Allow us to introduce you to your new favorite hair color: ashy brown sombré. Known for its warm roots fading into ashy gray ends, this hair color looks flawless on warmer skin tones.

Baby Blonde

Remember 2016’s snowlights? These are their baby sister. Characterized by super-pale highlights scattered all over, this hair color can help brighten up any complexion—though keep in mind that it’s best paired with fair skin accented with cool undertones.

Blorange Hair

If you’ve taken a scroll through your social media feeds lately, then you’ve probably noticed that there’s a new ginger-hued must-have color in town. Oh hey, blorange hair, it’s so nice to meet you! Falling somewhere in between rose gold and pumpkin spice, this blood orange shade will be an automatic attention grabber.

Blush Hair

Rose gold a little too bright for your liking? Take a peek at this muted pink shade, which has a more mature vibe.

Butterscotch

Looking for a way to brighten up your medium, warm-toned skin? Try this pudding-colored shade, which can add blonde dimension to light brown locks.

Chocolate Brown

If you’re searching for a color to help make your brown eyes pop, look no further than a rich, true brown to get the job done. Pro tip: It looks especially good on olive skin tones.

Chocolate Mauve

OK, so you love the look of chocolate brown hair, but you want to spice it up a bit. By adding mauve to the mix, you’ll be able to embrace the brunette version of rose fold for a super-eye- catching tonal change from rich mahogany to a warmer pink. Once you’re done styling your chocolate mauve hair, spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Nutri-Gloss High Shine Glossing Mist.

Cool Brown

Think of a medium-hued brown with slightly cool undertones—now you’ve got an idea of how gorgeous this shade is. Pair it with warm skin tones and you’ll automatically take your look to the next level with this untraditional brown. Loving the idea of this color and want to give it a go? Try the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Cool Medium Brown.

Dark Golden Brown

Not ready to rock blonde but want a little bit of sun-kissed love for your dark brown hair? Add honey-gold tones to the mix for the ultimate beachy brown. Just wait until you see how it pairs with deeper skin tones. Wow!

Denim Blue

Aqua hair is so last year, but that doesn’t mean blue strands don’t have a place in the must-have hair colors of 2017. This year it’s all about a deeper, darker blue—you know, like your favorite skinny jeans wash. Since this color is ultra-pigmented, it can require quite a bit of maintenance.  

Espresso

Ah, who doesn’t love the taste of fresh, hot espresso? Why not use your favorite morning beverage as a guide for your next hair color change? This rich brown color looks fabulous on darker skin tones—and don’t even get us started on how it looks when paired with green eyes!

Gradient Copper

There’s no denying the 2016 was the year of red hair and ombré dye jobs. And with two gorgeous trends to choose from, why pick just one? This new copper hair color pairs vibrant red locks with a gentle fade for an ever fierier ‘do.

Jet Black

This versatile ever-so-slightly bluish black hue pairs well with darker skin tones—but if you’re looking to really make a statement with paler skin, it will look stunning as well. If you want to give this color a go, try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Deep Blue Black.

Jewel Tones

We loved the pastel shades of the past, so it only makes sense that we’d adore the more vibrant hues of the future, too. Think: color melting with quartz pink and sapphire blue to create one-of-a-kind tresses. These shades are super-pigmented, so they tend to show up best on blondes. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Color, available in a variety of shades such as soft pink, teal, and indigo.

Light Ash Blonde

If you have pale skin, consider asking your colorist for a super-pale blonde with hints of pale green and blue undertones. Pro tip: The undertones of this shade can work overtime—not only can they help make your complexion pop, they can help neutralize the look of rosiness, too.

Light Auburn

Just shy of natural red hair, this shade looks fabulous with fair skin and light eyes.

Light Brown

Think: one dimensional, natural-looking tresses that flow perfectly with medium skin tones.

Light Golden Blonde

This yellow-blonde hair color can help brighten up warm skin tones. Need a recco? Try the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Light Golden Blonde.

Light Golden Brown

Want to warm up your light brown tresses? Add in a touch of gold to accentuate your warm skin tone. Gorgeous, darling!

Medium Ash Brown

With green and blue ashy undertones, this hair color pairs especially well with cooler skin tones. Keep in mind that the ashy color can look fairly drab on a lot of people, but if you have fair skin and light eyes you’re in the clear!

Medium Auburn

As the perfect mesh of red and brown hair hues, medium auburn hair is a beautiful way to add richness to your overall look.

Medium Champagne

Who doesn’t love bubbly? This hair color suits people with pink or rosy undertones because the underlying green and blue tints can help balance out your overall look.

Nude Hair

First there was nude makeup, so it only makes sense that nude hair would follow. Think of this hair color as the ultimate neutral shade that’s often associated with the look of a natural blonde.

Platinum

Douse your hair in shimmering white to embrace your inner ice queen and look totally on trend. You can opt it keep platinum extremely well-maintained by booking regular appointments with your colorist—or you can let it grow out to show a little root action. The good news is, both are totally fashionably acceptable right now.

Reddish Cinnamon

Red hair for cool-toned skin? Tell me more! It’s all about how this copper hair with hints of brown can make your features pop for a one-of-a-kind red ‘do.

Rose Gold

Known for its super-light base in a pastel pink hue, rose gold hair has become synonymous with trendsetters. It’s perfect for those who want to rock a tint of color without going full on jewel-toned. Want to give the gorgeous hue a try? Try the L’Oréal Paris Féria Fashion Metallics in Rose Gold.

Strawberry Blonde

Unable to select one color to bring your new look to life? Strawberry blonde is a perfect option for pretty new tresses because it incorporates brown, auburn, and blonde.

Tiger Eye

Remember bronde? Just think of tiger eye as the latest evolution of this much-beloved hue. With hints of honey, amber, and soft brown, tiger eye incorporates a combo of balayage highlights for a gorgeous head of hair. Since the balayage coloring technique is hand-painted on, you won’t have to worry about harsh roots or frequent salon visits to upkeep your beautiful new ‘do. Score!

How to Take Care of Color-Treated Hair

Have we convinced you to take the hair color plunge? If so, it’s important to note that your regular hair care routine may need an upgrade after you’ve dyed your strands.

1. Use a shampoo and conditioner designed for color-treated hair. The L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner are formulated with an antioxidant + UV filter and ceramide to help preserve your color and mend damaged, processed hair fibers. After rinsing out the shampoo, apply the conditioner and leave it on for one to three minutes, then rinse.

2. Swap in a hair mask once or twice a week. Sometimes, color-treated hair just needs a little extra love. So, once or twice a week, swap out the L’Oréal Paris Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris Color Vibrancy Intensive Ultra Recovery Mask. After shampooing with the L’Oréal Paris Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo, apply the mask to wet hair, leave it on for three to five minutes, then rinse.

3. Embrace your natural texture. Many of these trendy hair colors add serious dimension to your strands—so don’t be afraid to rock your natural curls or waves. Put down the heat tools and let your hair air dry every once in a while. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, braid your hair, then undo the braid once your hair has dried for pretty, loose waves.
