Spring is almost here, and that means it’s time to begin thinking about updating your hair. If a haircut isn’t on your agenda for spring then you can get the fresh new look that you’ve been craving by trying a gorgeous new hair color. This year’s top colors are more minimal and natural than many of the trends we saw last year. Rather than hot pink, bright white, jewel tones, or high-contrast highlights the colors you’ll be seeing this spring are earthy shades of browns, reds, and blondes. Super dark brunettes will have their day as well. These are the hair colors that will help you have a bright and beautiful spring.

Shiny Raven Black

The nearly iridescent color of jet-black hair is absolutely mesmerizing, and with the goth aesthetic quickly gaining in popularity at the moment you’ll be seeing a flood of raven-black tresses this spring. There’s nothing that captures the gothic vibe better than midnight black tresses. These deepest brunettes will be sporting a bit of color in the form of deep red, dark purple, and indigo blue money piece highlights or tip highlights.

Liquid Brunette

Liquid hair will be hot this spring, especially in colors like rich espresso, deep mocha, and dark chocolate. The ultra-glossy liquid treatment makes these dark colors glisten like the sun on the water. Highlights heighten the light-catching effect even more. You’ll want to keep up on the gloss treatments to ensure this color keeps its sheen.

Rust Red

Not quite as bright as copper, rust red is a more earthy shade of orangy-red with some brown undertones that make pretty much anyone look naturally ginger. If you’ve been wondering what it’s like to have the rarest hair color in the world, now is your chance to give it a try.

Peach Gold

This is a variation of the ever-popular rose gold. The warmer peachy pastel tones of this color were made for spring. If you’re looking for a color that is bold yet soft and ultra-feminine, this is exactly what you want.

Illuminated Bronde

Not quite blonde and not quite brunette, bronde is a great compromise when you just can’t decide between the two. Blonde and brunette tones combine perfectly in this color to create a color all its own. Full highlights throughout lift the color to the next level with an illuminated glow that will have everyone talking.

Dirty Blonde

Many will be opting for low-maintenance colors this spring and dirty blonde will be a top choice. With its blend of both warm and cool tones, it’s a great neutral shade that compliments many different skin tones. And as spring approaches you can warm your color with sunny, golden highlights to mimic the changing season.

Expensive Brunette

This color is created with a depth of various brown tones interwoven into the hair to give it unstoppable energy, dimension, and deep detail. The resulting color is glossy, shiny, and rich with an ultra-healthy look. This color was all over social media in the fall, and you’ll be seeing it dominating your social feeds again this spring.

Hair Color Home Maintenance

When you’ve invested in a new hair color that you love you want to get the most out of it. The right home hair care routine can extend the life of your color so that you can enjoy your beautiful color even longer. Follow these at-home hair care tips to help your new spring color last.

  • Shampoo less frequently. Each time you suds up you wash a tiny bit of pigment down the drain. Once or twice per week is just right for most people to keep those strands clean and color-vibrant.
  • Turn down the heat in the shower. The warmer the water the more your cuticle opens, allowing pigment to be lost. Keep the water cooler to seal the cuticle and prevent fading.
  • Don’t skimp on conditioner. Dry hair appears dull, and so does the color. Keep your strands well moisturized to give your color the healthy sheen you want.
  • Mask your hair weekly. Deep conditioning strengthens chemically processed hair repairing damage and restoring shine.
  • Minimize heat styling. Heat damages pigments, so the more you heat style the sooner your color will fade. Air dry and opt for no-heat hairstyles when you can to keep your color looking fresh longer.
