Spring 2022 Hair Colours You Have To Try
Looking for the hottest new shades to try this spring? We’re loving these fresh new looks that have been rising in popularity lately!
With spring well and truly here, we’re seeing a lot more blonde and pastel shades pop up as everyone is saying goodbye to the darkness for another year. We love this yearly trend of bright and sunny colours making a reappearance, and this year we’re seeing some truly gorgeous and innovative tones.
Straight from the salon, here are the most popular new shades right now.
Strawberry Blonde Hair by Emily at Live True Soho
Springboarding off the copper trend from late last year, we’re seeing more and more strawberry blonde and warm pastel shades at the moment. If you hopped on the copper hair trend and are feeling ready for a change, a strawberry blonde shade will be easy to achieve and won’t leave you in the chair for hours of colour correction.
What to ask for at the salon: If you want to dip your toe into the strawberry trend, we recommend booking a consultation with your stylist to decide which shade is right for your skin tone, as well as what colouring technique is best for your lifestyle. An all over light copper look will have a gorgeous impact although will be high maintenance, whereas a strawberry blonde balayage can be an easy to grow out and subtle way to try the trend.
Golden Blonde Balayage by Ludo at Live True Clapham
The Cali Balay or California Balayage is the latest trend in effortless, sunkissed blonde locks. We love this surfer inspired, lived-in look, characterised by bright blonde colouring and a cool-girl textured finish.
What to ask for at the salon: To try this trend, ask your stylist for a bright blonde Live True Balayage (with foils) and a textured finish. To really nail the look, make sure to bring reference pictures of what you want.
Blonde Balayage by Zofija at Live True Soho
You’ve heard of expensive brunette, get ready for expensive blonde! Based on the natural and sophisticated expensive brunette trend of last year but with a summery twist, expensive blonde focuses on bespoke and seamless colouring that gives you a gorgeous your-hair-but-better look. Unlike the golden tones of the Cali Balay, expensive blonde can be achieved with a range of blonde shades, from platinum to bronde.
What to ask for at the salon: Whether you’re after highlights or balayage, make sure to ask for a glossy finish and add Olaplex to keep your hair looking shiny and healthy.
Chocolate Balayage by Natalia at Live True Vauxhall
We love our brunette babes, and for those who prefer life on the dark side, we recommend adding some dimension and warmth with gorgeous chocolatey tones.
What to ask for at the salon: A classic chocolate balayage! Make sure to bring inspiration pictures of looks you love so your stylist can really nail the shade you want.
Peach Balayage by Molly at Live True Soho
Another tropical twist on the copper hair trend, we’re seeing more and more peach tones pop up in our salons! We love this refreshing and juicy range of peachy shades, and are perfect for copper trend followers who want to achieve a lighter shade for spring and summer.
What to ask for at the salon: Book a vivid colour with your balayage or full head bleach, as this is a semi permanent colour that will give you the brightness you’re looking for.
Hazelnut Balayage by Natalia at Live True Vauxhall
If you’ve got naturally dark hair that you’d like to lighten naturally for spring, we’re obsessed with this gorgeous hazelnut balayage. These gorgeous nutty tones are a great way to make your natural brown look more sunkissed and dimensional.
What to ask for at the salon: Ask your stylist to add some cool tones into your brunette balayage, but not too ashy. Always bring reference pictures so you can perfect your look!
