Spring may be just around the corner but the chilly winter temps outside are still going strong. While there's not much you can do to speed up the seasons, a quick way to take control and warm things up this winter is by trying out a new haircolor! Warm tones are trending this year and there's no better time than now to embrace them. Below we're sharing three shades that will help you beat the cold this winter.
According to hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Jo Blackwell, 2017 is going to be the year of the brunette with French Browns leading the pack. French Browns utilize multiple tones within the brown color family to create a soft, satin-like finish that complements everyone. The results are born-with-it-but-better, just like the gorgeous shades of brown that stroll down the streets of Paris. The best way to achieve a French Brown is by going to a L'Oréal Professionnel salon and visiting the new Brunette Bar. Your hairdresser will work with you to find the best version of French Brown for you. To take your French girl style to the next level, try a bold, blunt bang and a few long layers that you can style with a blow-dryer or air-dry for a very laid back look.
For the last few seasons blondes have played it cool-with ashy tones that is. This year, warm up your blonde and try a buttery, warm, golden shade. Hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Jason Backe calls a buttery blonde fashion forward and perfect for someone who wants to stay ahead of the curve. "If you tan easily, if you have green or brown eyes, if you have freckles, if you have a light to medium complexion, this is a great option for you," Backe says.
Want to add a little fire to your red? Try a bold, warm copper. Not only is this look incredibly gorgeous, it's also unbelievably versatile-everyone can rock a red! "Technically, red is the only hair color that works on every single skin tone," says hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Suzie Bond. Ask your hairdresser for a warm-toned crimson and be sure to book your appointments for touch-ups and glosses ahead of time, since reds-because they are so vibrant-tend to fade faster than other colors.
No matter which shade you choose, remember to use color-safe shampoos and conditioners at home to keep your hue looking its best as long as possible!
