Hair Color Now

Trend Of The Month

Vivid Coif Colors

Creative color is trending at salons across the country. Combining and layering hues allows you to express your personal style sense and have all eyes on you. If these stunning designs don’t inspire you we don’t know what will!


Ultra-violet crochet locs, created by Ashleigh Hayes, from Beautique Salon in San Jose, CA, are fun and trendy. Natural locs are braided, then faux locs, in fun purple and teal shades, are attached using the crochet technique. Four locs are braided and pinned and a fishtail braid is pinned on top.


Lustrous and iridescent locks look amazing in this shaggy pixie. Hairdresser Chrissy Bruce, of Bang Theory in Capital Heights, MD, mixed amethyst and fuchsia shades throughout the flirty layers of this cute cut. A trendy undercut is the perfect finish.


Vibrant colors make this crop really pop. A deep espresso base is perfect for this fun color combo. A pastel kissed fringe is created for a chic hint of bright color that’s absolutely mesmerizing. Thank hair pro Zakiyyah Robinson, from The B Davis Hair Care Salon in Indianapolis, IN, for this amazing mane.


Singer Alicia Keys always looks fabulous and isn’t afraid to change up her coif. Here, the 15-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer looks stunning in lengthy braids that are dipped in shades of purple and pink for a fun pop of color.
