Forget About Blond Balayage, These Are The Ultimate Color Trends For Summer

By: Chabe Cara -

The reign of blond balayage and highlights is over! Red hair hues are taking over summer, and you should try it too!

Beach waves in blond balayage and highlights have dominated the summer hair trends for the past years; however, that’s ancient history. This new decade is all about vibrant colors, and reds are definitely the ones to dominate the hair trends of the season.

Red might seem like an intimidating hair color mainly because of the vividness of its nature; however, there are so many hues you can try that there’s definitely a great red color option for your style and taste. The trick here is to choose the right red shade for your skin type. That means going for a nice red that highlights either the coolness or warmness of your skin instead of competing with it.

Strawberry Red

For instance, if you’re looking for something more subtle and yet, trendy and fashionable, you can go for a soft strawberry red. This shade is perfect for cold toned-skin since it will add warmth to your face. Also, it will help highlight the color of your eyes no matter their color.

Copper Red

Copper red is perfect for basically every range of skin. It can look gorgeous on fair to dark skin tones, especially those with cool tones since, like strawberry red, it creates a beautiful balance by adding some warmth to your features. However, warm-toned skins can also rock this hue especially those with darker complexions. If you’re fair and have warm skin, there are many other options since this one might actually bring out the redness of your skin.

Cherry Red

With an interesting combination of deep reds and some purple undertones, this color is amazing for warm skin tones. The purplish hues will help balance the redness of your complexion while adding depth to the look. This is also a great idea for those who don’t want to go for a very complex hair process since these types of shades don’t require bleaching nor going through extreme chemical processes. Besides that, it won’t require as much maintenance as the previous hues.

Bright Orange Red

If you’re looking for a dazzling and dramatic transformation, bright orange hues might be the ones for you. This one is the absolute perfect shade for skins with cool undertones and it looks definitely stunning on curly hair. The only thing you must take into consideration before jumping for this hue is that it will require a lot of color process (especially if you have dark hair) and a lot of maintenance. But isn’t this gorgeous shade worth it?

Fantasy Red

If bright orange isn’t bold enough for you, you can always go the extra mile and jump into fantasy colors. These are extra vibrant and the favorites in the past couple of years. Fantasy red will give you that extra style you’re looking for while keeping it a bit toned down compared to colors like bright pink or blue. Like the previous one, this color requires a lot of work and maintenance; however, since these are semi-permanent colors, besides the bleaching, they’re not as damaging as other dyes.

Now, the great thing about red colors is that they go really nice with basically any other hair shade, so you can also try a color effect like balayage, highlights, ombre, or even the super trendy face-framing highlights! 2021 is all about new beginnings, and these vibrant colors are a perfect start!
