So many of us are gearing up and itching for the summer weather to kick in. Of course, with the start of summer also comes the start of summer hair. Every time the seasons change so many of us are eager to switch up our hair color to accommodate the change in seasons with our hair. Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to change your hair color and embrace something new into your life. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with your hair, so changing the color is a great way to update your look easily. We always hear about hair color trends, but we wanted to focus on summer hair colors that work for women of color.

You’ve probably noticed that bold, bright hair colors are kind of a thing these days. This summer, we definitely have quite a few bright hair color trends happening, one of the colors that some experts suggest work best for women of color are blue and purple tones. Since these hair colors tend to take a LOT to get your hair to hold the color, the best way to incorporate the trend without having to deal with constantly touching it up every couple of days (or putting too much stress on your hair) is to choose an area of your hair to add the color. Adding a streak or chunk of hair with the color is a great way to add the color, but not have to constantly deal with the excessive maintenance if you were to color your entire head of hair with the color.
When we think of the summer months, we tend to be drawn to lighter and bright colors… even with our hair. If you’re interested in something drastic for a change of pace with your hair, one of the super gorgeous hair colors that work for women of color this summer has to be the addition of golden blonde hues. It’s often quite a change of hair color, but when you have your hair colorist add a lot of golden undertones to the blonde hue it can look stunning. Beyonce is a woman who has rocked this type of hair color for a while, but this summer season we’re expecting to see more and more of it. It’s a total shift, but perfect for the summer months.
Red hair is definitely having a moment, for women of all color. We love the edginess that you can achieve by incorporating some red tones to your hair. Typically, the darker shades of red work best for women of color and similar to the blue/purple tones the darker the red the easier it’s going to be to maintain such a bold color. With red, you can really incorporate as much or as little as you like or resonate with for yourself. Just adding in a few pieces of red, or a haze of red can be great if you don’t want to go for the full effect. But if you’re feeling really red – try going for a full head of dark red.
