The prettiest hair color 2015
Get ready to dye: Modern metallic color and gorgeous highlights are trending for winter and we’ve rounded up the most stellar celebrity examples for you to bring to your colorist.
Take Miranda Kerr’s lead and revive dull brown color with an all-over shine glaze and golden highlights that frame and brighten your face.
Auburn Brown-Cara Delevingne
The sweet spot between brown and red hair? Auburn, like Cara Delevingne’s. Ask your colorist for subtle, thin chestnut highlights.
3. Bright Blonde — Kate Hudson
Bright, buttery blonde color, like Kate Hudson’s, tends to be more flattering (and less maintenance) than platinum.
4. Dirty Blonde — Suki Waterhouse
Going from brunette to blonde? Ease into lighter color, like model Suki Waterhouse did, by keeping the roots dark and blending warm caramel and butterscotch highlights through the length.
5. Rose Gold — Amy Adams
“This season is all about rose-gold locks,” says colorist Faye Goodwin, of the color seen here on Amy Adams. Achieve it with highlights topped with a demi-permanent gloss that’s blended with an even mix of gold and copper hues. “It flatters all skin tones,” adds Redken creative consultant Tracy Cunningham. Maintenance level: low.
6. Wheat Blonde — Jennifer Lawrence
Platinum is still having its moment, but for dark blondes and light to medium brunettes who don’t want to commit to the maintenance it requires, try wheat blonde. It’s brighter and more buttery than dirty blonde with hints of light brown color peeking out at the roots or underneath. Maintenance level: medium.
7. Bronze — Beyonce
Brunettes seeking an instant face brightener should ask their colorist for bronze and golden highlights placed not he mid-shaft to the ends of their hair, says Goodwin. “It’s the perfect way to lighten your color and still look natural,” says Cunningham. Beyonce nails the look. Maintenance level: medium.
8. Dark Highlights — Kerry Washington
All-over dark hair color can be severe; breaking it up with subtle chocolate highlights brightens it up and adds gorgeous dimension. The best part? Upkeep is minimal, since the highlights look most natural when they start mid-shaft and frame the face. Kerry Washington is a perfect example of the trend.
