hot hues: Vanilla blondes-not platinum nor golden, but a smooth blend of the two-bold, rich brunette with massive shine and earthy red-deep, rich auburns with small hints of fire
what's new: "Balayage that can be softly swept or explosive pieces on the surface. It is the driving force behind most new color techniques, including 'Bally Boo'-a modern version of peek-a-boo hair color. A color process 'hides' panels of color in the interior of the hair to subtly add low-maintenance pops of color or go bolder with dramatically different shades."
star inspiration: Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston for blondes; Courteney Cox and Fergie for richer brunettes; Julia Roberts and Florence Welch for earthy reds.
