The Best Summer Hair Colors to Try Now



Red is gaining in popularity, thanks in part to Zendaya’s killer shade. Want to try the trend but not sure where to start? “Orchard red contains both copper and auburn tones, which can richen your entire appearance,” says Karissa Schaudt at Maxine Salon in Chicago. “If your hair is natural, you can achieve this within a single process. If there’s previous color, you’ll need a base color and balayage to achieve this multi-reflective look.” As with all red shades, just be prepared for a lot of upkeep, since it’ll fade quickly.


According to Chicago colorist Rex Jimieson, his clients have been moving away from the darker roots and lighter ends they’ve been loving in recent seasons. Instead they’ve been asking for a look that Jimieson dubbed tweed hair, essentially subtle highlights that are evenly distributed. “A contrast is still present, but not as ‘overachiever’ as seen in recent seasons,” he says. One of our favorite versions of the look? This rich brown with golden balayage pieces from Simplicity Salon in South Florida.
