Hot summer hair colour trends

Lily Aldridge --An illuminated brunetteHair colour has become the go-to accessory for celebrities who want to change their look in hurry. You can do the same. Tracey Cunningham, Celebrity Colorist and Redken Creative Consultant for Color talks about the top trends, from blonde to brunette. “The summertime is a great excuse for everyone to brighten up their look. My clients are always looking for a hair colour change with each season, even if it’s small,” explains Cunningham.  “With Redken’s New Chromatics prismatic permanent hair colour, I have unlimited colour possibilities and my clients love how healthy and conditioned their hair is!”

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #1: Brunettes
“My clients are still loving Redken’s Illumination technique – darker roots with lighter ends.  Brunettes continue to lighten up into the warmer months, whether they go a little lighter on the ends or for their overall colour.  So many of my clients bring in photos of Minka Kelly for their hair inspiration.  She has such a pretty warm golden brown colour that looks fantastic with her complexion. As the weather warms up, even brunettes like to brighten up their colour for summer!”

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #2: Redheads
“Bryce Dallas Howard is definitely the most requested colour for my redhead clients. She’s become such an “it girl” since her role in The Help, and rightfully so!  Her deep red colour is definitely going to be a trend for Spring/Summer ’12.  No messing around here – deep, strong and vibrant reds are here to stay!”

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #3: Blondes
“Blondes are not just for LA anymore! Whether I take clients to platinum blonde, like Kate Bosworth or a darker blonde, like Molly Sims, they’re destined to be on trend. The blonder the better, but still keeping the look natural is key.”
