Do you want to look more beautiful and stylish this year? Don’t stop at just updating your wardrobe and modifying your hairstyle. You should also change up the colour of your hair! Here are some of the hottest hair colour trends that you should try this 2014:
Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway and Michelle Williams have recently dyed their locks to ice cold platinum. And boy, do they look stunning! This bleached out hair colour is feminine yet edgy and is a signature look of Christina Aguilera. If you have a pale or yellow toned complexion, this hair trend would look great on you. Depending on your preference, you can opt to go all platinum or maintain darker roots for contrast. If you are not naturally blonde, make the look more natural by dyeing your eyebrows a bit lighter too.
Rose Gold Red
Ranging from deep red to rose gold, the red hair colour is definitely back this year. If you want to be a redhead like Emma Stone this year, you’ll be glad to know that everyone can carry red hair as long as it is the right shade. If you have a light to medium skin tone, you can definitely pull off the similar rose gold shade of Rachel McAdams. You may want to choose a warmer shade of red if you have honeyed skin.
Sweet Honey Caramel
If you have been blond, red, and brunette in the past years, try a hair colour that’s more subdued but still sophisticated for 2014. The sweet honey caramel hair colour is perfect because it looks natural and effortless. As seen on Cara Delevingne, Kate Mara, and Kim Kardashian, your hair will be highlighted in three different colours with the lightest one positioned at the front. Since the highlights are done all throughout the hair, the colour flows seamlessly and achieves a more chic vibe.
The newest hair painting technique to sweep the salons by storm is the balayage. Originated in France, the balayage is done by hand instead of utilising traditional cap highlighting or foiling. This technique makes the hair look softer, more natural, and beautifully sun-kissed. Among the many celebrities that have bayalage hair are Jennifer Lopez, Lily Aldridge, Lauren Conrad and Jessica Biel. The bayalage technique is best for blondes but it generally works on all hair colours.
Rich Chocolatey Brown
Ever since Katy Perry and Kate Middleton were seen sporting darker locks, brunette hair has become more popular than ever. If you have really pale skin, the rich chocolate brown hair colour should have a mahogany base and then complemented with one shade lighter tips to prevent a washed-out look.
If ombré hair colour was such a big thing last summer, winter 2014 is all about the sombré. Dubbed as the cold weather substitute to ombré, the sombré (subtle + ombré) hair colouring technique doesn’t have that extreme two-toned look that ombré has. It gradually fades from the roots to the ends but it gives off a softer, more effortless diffusion of colour. Mila Kunis and Jessica Alba were among the first ones to transition their ombré hair colour to sombré as soon as summer was over. Sombré colour pairing ideas include cinnamon mahogany for dark hair, rose gold for red hair, shimmery brown for brunette, and sun-kissed bleach for blondes.
