Summer is almost here and everyone is looking to lighten up their look. Summer wardrobes are often bright and airy, and many people spend a lot of their time at the pool. With tanner skin, or even with a sunless tan, different hair colors look better. This time of the year is the best time to debut a new look. Here are some hair color ideas to transition your hair from winter to summer easily.
The best way to give your hair a summertime glow is to get some highlights. Highlights are one of the greatest hair color ideas for summer because they really lighten up the hair without having to do the whole head, which is cheaper. Some face framing lighter streaks around the face and on top create a sun-kissed look. If you have blonde hair, try even lighter blonde highlights like champagne and platinum. For brown hair, lighten up with medium blond to light blond highlights. Honey or caramel-colored highlights also give a warm glow. For darker hair, medium brown or even red highlights can still give the same effect. Red hair also looks beautiful with blonde highlights.
The best summer hair color ideas for shades that are darker from deep, chocolate brown to jet black are to either lighten with highlights, or to brighten the shade two to three shades lighter than your winter color. For a deep, chocolate hue, lightening the base to a more medium-brown shade is like an instant face-brightener. Taking jet black to a slightly lighter brown can make a huge difference in giving you a sunny look.
Some other hair color ideas for summer are to go all the way blonde. The best time to try an all over blonde shade is when your skin has a golden hue; this will give you a sexy, summery look. Do not go too light though if your hair is already pretty dark. Choose a dark blonde hue and have a professional do the color for you. Always remember to consult a professional if you are going more than three shades lighter.
Summer is the time to try new hair colors and have fun with your look. Brighten up with highlights, lightening a couple shades, or going all over blonde. Choosing the right combination can be difficult, but when you get it right you'll be sure to be the talk of the town. Don't be afraid to make a change, it could be the start to a fabulous summer!
