Summer Hair Colors

Can you believe that summer is right around the corner? I don’t know about you, but every summer I change my hair color. I always go lighter! It’s just me loving the summer blonde and really wanting to be as bright as possible! Summer hair colors are so much fun because you CAN have some fun! You have the beautiful sun highlighting your hair with it’s shine and glimmer, so why not have do something a little out of your comfort zone and go bold! It’s the perfect time to do it!

Summer Hair Color Inspiration

When it comes to find the perfect summer hair colors for yourself, you need to think about 3 things:

  1. What is going to make me happy? The summer is all about happiness and fun and being carefree (well, sorta!). Make sure your hair reflects that sentiment. What makes you feel young? What seems fun to you?
  2. Is there someone that you look at with total hair envy? This is when your hairdresser will become your best friend because he or she will tell you if you can actually pull off the style and hair color you want. As much as I’ve always wanted to go dark, my gray hair won’t allow it. My hairdresser always says to me, “I can do it… but you’re going to have to come back for touch-ups every 3 weeks! Is that OK with you? And it’s not. I don’t have that kind of time or money.
  3. What hair color will make you feel the best version of you? Regardless of what makes you happy, you need to make sure your hair color makes you feel your very best. What will you love waking up to every single morning? What color won’t you get stick of too quickly? What color will make you want to wake up and say, “Boom! I love it!” This is how you want to feel. This is what you want!

I thought it would be fun to attach some of my favorite summer hair colors below from my favorite salon LaLaLuxe Salon. She and her staff are the best at creating looks and styles that work for you. I love seeing what they create because they always know the latest trends and styles. I tried to include different hair colors so you can find one that works for you. If you’re brunette, blonde, pink, purple or a red head anything below works for you! See what one or ones work for you best!
