When we talk about trendy hair colors, nothing is really off. That being said, some looks come and go- especially when it comes to hair colors. A new season brings new trends and new ways to color and highlight hair. We asked top colorists to find out what their customers are asking for and what shades they think will continue to be huge in 2020. They are not psychic (at least we don’t think so), but they listen to their client needs in the salon all day – and some of those clients happen to be big trendsetters like celebrities. Therefore, it is highly likely to see these colors everywhere in 2020. Stay in the now with us and follow these trendy hair colors to turn all heads wherever you are.
Things are opening up gradually, but you may still be not feeling safe going out. Thank God for temporary hair dyes then! Many people still prefer to stay inside, and some states are still not completely over the idea of getting back to normal. This has increased the rate of interest in DIY hair color jobs and temporary dyes. If you feel like changing your color, you are not the only one. If you are already uncomfortable about going to the salon, rest assured that it is easy to recreate so many of these looks by dyeing your own hair at home. On the other hand, if you are ready to hit the salon, just take a screenshot of these cute celebrity looks to show your colorist (or ask them for a test run with a temporary hair dye).
If you need to be distracted from everything that is going on, take care of yourself a little and get this hair color inspiration.
Fortunately, one of the hottest hair color trends of 2020 requires minimal effort. You can do it yourself at home or ask your hairstylist to do a quick job. An easy way to get this look is to let your roots do their things and grow naturally while the coloring and bleaching part will stick to the lower region. Many celebrities are seen rocking this look like Kristen Stewart, Margot Robbie, Dua Lipa. It is so low maintenance and refreshing; you just can’t go wrong with this one.
At first glance or in low light, this might look like an average dark brown shade. But the colorist and creator of #mydentity, Guy Tang, calls it the “Chocolate Truffle” look due to its mixed combination of warmer and cooler brunette tones. This trendy hair color works great on women with a warmer skin tone. If you are bored with your current look but also don’t want a drastic change, then Chocolate Truffle is where that happy med point is. A Chocolate Truffle doesn’t have to go dark brown all over; it can also be mixed with a chocolate base and sun-kissed highlights. The second variation of this look can be seen on Jamie Chung, who is rocking this look with a little blonde at the tips touching her frame perfectly.
Cherry Red Hair
This one is for all the fierce ladies out there! This is a bold, daring, and attention-grabbing look. If you are not ready for a long-term commitment with a look this fierce, then go for a temporary hair dye job. From Lilly Collins, Katy Perry, and Lana Del Rey to Keke Palmer and Rihanna, this is a color that’s not just a statement on its own but also one of the rarest trendy hair colors that go with every skin complexion beautifully. Cherry Red or Red Velvet hues are not too cool or too warm; this is why they go with every skin tone, whether dark or light. However, this bold and head-turning look requires extra care and high maintenance. We recommend using color-safe shampoo and conditioner in between your salon appointments.
Smoky Ice Hair
The specialists have spoken! It is the year for ashy tones in general. Go lighter, go lower. The stark contrast in smoky ice color tones isn’t a bad or a fail combo with any skin tone, even if you’re ultra-fair, whitish, or divinely dark. The fun part of this color is all in the other-worldly, radiant look. You can either go very light with your smoky ice look or go dark like model Jourdan Dunn back in the 2016 Met Gala. But like all good things in life, this unconventional trendy hair color also requires maximum care and extra maintenance. Ask your colorist for a longer-lasting vibrant look.
Wheat Blonde is the evergreen, ever fresh, never too dull yet not too daring look for years! It is called Wheat Blonde for its consistent, medium tone, which is neutral with a hint of warmth. This look, like every other mixed tone hair color, comes in a variety of versions. You can go for subtle highlights all around with slightly darker roots to give your look an edge without adding too much contrast, or you can go for a streaky look like J. Lo with a light brown base and sections of bright blonde in streaks.
