Did you know that there is a “world-renowned authority on color”? That’s right, each year, on the first day of New York Fashion Week, The Pantone Color Institute releases a biannual fashion report highlighting the top ten shades that are bound to dominate the color trends of the year. But who says you have to stop at fashion!? Set some trends with your curls by wearing these colors in your hair! The Fall 2016 color forecast is a hair colorist’s dream as it’s filled with opportunity.
From tranquil tones of blue to calming pastels like Dusty Rose, and vivacious shades like Aurora Red, you and your curls are sure to find a color that suits your current mood or personality. Remember, the great thing about color is that you can always change it!
1. Riverside: Like a good pair of blue jeans, this is a blue that goes with everything, so why not put it in your hair? This color speaks to calmness as it’s not as bright as cobalt or subdued as navy — it’s a little bit edgy, mixed with practicality.
2. Airy Blue: Achieve ice queen status with one of the coolest curly hair color trends of the year. This edgy hue will keep your tresses icy fresh and thanks to the invention of Olaplex, curly girls can say goodbye to bleaching and keep their locks damage-free.
3. Sharkskin: Don’t worry if you missed out on the #grannyhair trend that was so popular last year — thanks to Pantone’s new color sharkskin, it’s still going strong. This emboldened gray is pair-able with almost any color, making it practical, yet contemporary.
4. Aurora Red: Grab some attention in this dynamic shade of red that delivers a punch of confidence and warmth. Surely, you’ll never have a boring hair day with this sensual red swirling through your curly cues!
5.Warm Taupe: Girls who want to tone down those blonde locks from summer are going to gravitate towards this tried and true shade. It’s warm and approachable — people may want to reach out and touch it! (via @thenaturalslife)
6. Dusty Cedar: Can we say curl envy!? This rose gold hue conveys a sense of compassion in a warm and soothing way. It’s statement-worthy, yet conveys composure. Confident girls with a softer edge can flaunt this inviting tone that will surely turn some heads. (via @olaplex)
7. Lush Meadow: Let your green Goddess flag fly with this lush hue! Your curls will resonate with rich botanicals and exude an overall elegance to your overall look.
8. Spicy Mustard: If the exotic is what you’re after, Spicy Mustard is your grab. It takes a special curly girl to pull of this zesty look, but to those of you who can — we’re jelly!
9. Potters Clay: This earthy tone will ground your curls in sophistication and root them in stability. Let your curls stand out in this russet shade that’s anything but flat.
10. Bodacious: Don’t be afraid to play with color, this unexpected pinkish-purplish hue is simply eye candy for your curls. Go ahead, let your head of hair be the star of the show! ([email protected])
