The sun is shining and it looks like we’re set for a fabulous summer season! When it comes to a new season, it’s the perfect time to opt for a new look, changing up our hair to give it a revamp for the season and to allow us to look and feel the best version of ourselves.

We spoke with Tina Mehmi who is part of the Colour Workshop Team at RUSH Hair & Beauty to get information on the hottest hair colour trends for summer, from natural glossy brunette tones and creamy lived in blondes to more ‘out there’ statement colour, including contrasting colour shades and peekaboo pastels…

High Shine Brunette – brunettes never go out of style but for 2023 they are glossier than ever! Glossing services and tints are a fantastic way to keep your brunette base vibrant and to enhance your natural hair colour without going for too much of a drastic change. For those who like a more natural, low maintenance colour, this one is perfect for you. Opt for a chocolate hue to add a glow to your complexion and to allow your eyes to really pop!
Contrasting Colour – if you’re looking to be a little more adventurous this summer, contrasting colour is a great choice and is a hair colour trend we are going to see becoming more and more popular throughout 2023. With this trend you can be as bold or as subtle as you like, you can choose some contrasting blonde face framing on your brunette base, go half blonde half brunette or even pair your base shade with a bright or neon hue. This colour trend is a great way to show off your personality and have some fun with your hair.Its All Peachy – coppers are always on trend for the autumn/winter season but for summer, we will see a lot more of peach hair – a slightly muted take on the copper hue. The beauty of this shade is that it gives the hair an incredible shine and it looks truly beautiful and mesmerising in the summer sun. For blondes in particular, they may want to experiment with a soft, almost washed out take on this shade in the summer months to give their hair a playful update.

Cherry Cola – calling all brunettes who want to add a pop of colour to their dark locks this summer – cherry cola is the shade for you. This shade looks a violet in some lighting and dark red in others and it gives not only dimension to brunette hair, but also a reflective shine.Creamy Lived In Blondes – blondes are always talked about in the summer and many clients are looking to go lighter as the weather gets brighter. Previously we have seen ashy shades being super on trend, however, for 2023 we will see creamier, ‘barbie like’ blondes paired with natural roots for a more lived in feel. Babylights are the best way to get this look, ensuring depth and dimension is kept in the hair and that it looks as natural as possible.

Peekaboo Pastels – for blondes looking for a creative, statement look this summer, look no further than peekaboo pastels! Simply a section of pastel in any shade you desire underneath the top layer of your hair. Pastel blues, pinks and greens have been all over the catwalks and being more muted in colour, they will blend out beautifully.
