Blorange
Can you tell it’s all about the mixing of different shades in 2017?  Blorange is a color combination of orange and red, done in pastel tones.  Since we saw so many bold and vibrant colors like blue and purple in 2016, we’re not all that shocked that the pastel color trend is coming into 2017 but with a shade we haven’t seen before.  It’s a fun, unique color combination that almost gives a blonde like hue with some fun twist to it. You’re likely going to see blorange done in an ombre effect as well as a full head in the blorange shade.

Tigers Eye
When you hear tigers eye you may think of the gemstone that’s pretty popular in jewelry and crystals, but it’s now going to be synonymous with a hot hair color in 2017!  Tiger’s eye is a different take on the ombre/bayalage hair trend we’ve seen in recent years.  For the most part, tiger’s eye in done with the majority of the hair being a dark brown shade, but mixing in lighter blonde like pieces throughout the hair in a natural and unique way.

Chocolate Mauve
Another color combination for the win in 2017!  We weren’t kidding when we said it’s all about mixing different colors together for this year’s hair color trends.  This is another unique color combination with the combination of chocolate/dark brown hair with mauve like highlights mixed in.  It’s a color trend that gives a really unique and different take on a traditional brown hair color.  So many of us tend to add in blonde highlights, but if you’re looking for something a bit different that adds some warmth and definition, it’s all about the addition of mauve hues to the mix.

Whew!  Those are some pretty hot hair colors for 2017, right?  Do you have a favorite of the colors mentioned above?

Haute Hair Colors For 2017

As we get ready to celebrate and welcome a new year, we have to acknowledge the fact that a new year means we’re going to be graced with new trends.  You already know how quickly and consistently the hair and beauty world change with trends.  Every season and every year is filled with new and exciting trends that we get to adapt in a way that’s unique to us and feels fun.  Since we’re exciting to welcome 2017, we thought it was the perfect time to share some of the haute hair colors for 2017 that we already see being pretty popular.

Tigers eye hair color

Tigers Eye
This hair color trend is pulling some inspiration from the gemstone, tigers eye.  It’s filled with a mix of brown and blonde tones, and that’s exactly what the hair color trend does.  For this hair color trend it’s similar to a mix of ombre and bayalage that we’ve seen in recent years, but with quite different shades used.  Typically the other hair color trends have been more natural in the blending of different colors, but with tigers eye it’s really about having distinct brown and distinct blonde tones mixed into the hair.  It’s a really fresh and unique take on a hair color, a great way to add a unique twist and add some fun detailing to your hair color.

Defined Lavender
You’re probably noticed that the past year (2016, that is) has been filled with vibrant and exciting hair colors.  Well it already looks like we’re going to carry over some of that colorfulness into 2017 because we’ve seen a ton of defined lavender hair happening.  Some are referring to this as a smokey lavender hair, whatever you like to call it – it’s pretty gorgeous.  Essentially it’s incorporating different tones into an all over lavender hair color that creates a lot of definition and dimension to the hair look.  Many of these hair color looks go from deep purple tones to very light and everything in between to really create a range of shades.

Light Blonde
Blonde hair colors are always popular, but in 2017 it looks like it’s really going to be about the super light blonde hair.  In addition, experts are saying it’s going to be more about blonde hair that’s more of one solid shade than a lot of different blonde tones mixed in to kind of create a unique twist on the blonde hair color trend.

Chocolate Mauve
Another super fun and unique hair color trend the experts are saying is going to be major in 2017 is the chocolate mauve hair color.  It’s stunning and a statement maker, making it super haute.  Essentially it’s having an all over chocolate hair color, but adding in mauve highlights to the mix in an ombre or bayalage type of technique.  The mauve is typically added throughout the hair to create a subtly dimensional hair color.  Since the mauve is a bit more subtle, it mixes in well with the chocolate brown color, but still gives the ability to add color into your hair.

Take Years Off Your Look

The inevitable thing about life is we all get older; whether we like to accept it or not, part of getting older is acting and looking the part. Truth be told, your skin tone probably is not the same shade that it was in college. So why are you still getting your roots colored the same shade that you chose when you landed your first job? Believe it or not, one of the biggest secrets to taking years off your look is to choose the best color for your current skin tone. Now, one thing to keep in mind is that skin tone and skin color are not exactly the same thing. Typically, skin tone is described as warm, cool, or neutral; this is the skin’s undertone that shows through the color of the surface of your skin. This means that regardless of various changes in the actual color of skin (such as a sun tan or skin rash) the skin tone always remains the same.

Keeping the above in mind, your skin color or your complexion tends to develop a dull color, or what some might call pale. When your hair color is the suited to your skin tone, the dulling skin makes it more obvious, and it can make you look drained and tired. No one should look washed out, even on their worst days! To make sure you look your best at any age, keep reading and find out which color complements your skin tone.

Fair with Cool Undertones
You should try… an auburn hair color with a shine reflecting dimension, this will bring out the natural pink in your cheeks, making you skin appear fuller and younger! If you’re not one for reds, you may like a multidimensional blond hair color, which will offset any dullness in your facial skin, making your skin like brighter.

Fair with Warm Undertones
You should try… soft copper colored hair. This color will flatter your age by creating an illusion to soften wrinkles and fine lines, especially around the eyes.

Between Fair and Medium with Warm Undertones
You should try… a natural looking ombre, much like Julia Roberts sun-kissed look. The low placed lighter colors draw attention away from the hallowing areas of the face, giving the appearance of immature facial skin.

Medium with Cool Undertones
You should try… a silky soft black hair color. As long as you don’t kill and dry out your hair with heat tools day after day, your hair will give off a young radiance. Keep in mind that jet-black can be harsh, but if you stick to a soft black your complexion will appear smooth and young.

Medium with Warm Undertones
You should try… a golden or milk chocolate brown hair color. This color is one that flatters women of any age. This works even better if you have brown eyes! The coordination your hair and eye colors create a natural bronze appearance for youthful looking skin.

Top Haircuts of 2015
2015 was the year of going short, with pixies and bobs leading the way. The fade haircut was among the most popular salon requests, followed by layered cuts and a significant variety of bangs. Lead star from Orange is the New Black series Ruby Rose developed a huge following, from her share with the world on how so many processes and products caused her hair to begin falling out in clumps. She inspired an avalanche of cuts, along with another movement toward Ruby Rose Long Hair.

Our 2015 Hairstyle Product Support
Waiting a couple days or more between shampoos finally received the go-ahead in 2015, as it was determined that freshly washed hair is nobody’s business–and does its own thing–while day or two-old hair behaves, and can be formed for staying power into the trendiest of modern styles. We found more styling ability with dry shampoo, discovering how we could even spray our hair clips and bobby pins with it to add securing power. Flat irons didn’t disappear, but gave way to curling wands. There was a hunt for anything ionic, and we learned how to exfoliate our scalps to recharge our follicles and produce the healthiest-ever hair.

Trending colors were impressive and indicative of every woman’s innate need to express her inner passion and wear it proudly. Let’s hear it for burgundy, purple and even silver entering into the realm of lovely possibilities. Blonde highlights reached new heights, with more precision and multidimensional effects that rocked hair effects with unsurpassed elegance. We became avid fans of dark roots, and how they add a visual effect of hair being thicker, fuller and more voluminous.
