A new season and a new slew of hair color trends! From toasted coconut to cream soda blonde, I asked Butterfly Studio Salon expert colorist Tamara DeFelice for the 411 on these color crazes. Check out which ones she thinks are great transition colors and others that just fall flat!
“Toasted coconut hair is Fall 2018’s ombré. It is rich brunette in the roots and gradually works into a toasty blonde through the ends. It’s a great way to transition your summer blonde to fall by deepening down your roots and glossing your ends to a warmer shiny hue.”
“Cream soda blonde had a big moment last fall. The tones are perfect for the season. It’s about soft pops of light in golden beigey tones. Think oatmeal, wheat and vanilla. This is great on dirty blondes and light brunettes. Try balayaging some accent highlights around the face and glossing with a sandy blonde tone.”
“I love shadow hair and actually wear this myself. It’s about soft highlights throughout your crown and shadowing them after to mimic a lived-in effect. This keeps things looking effortlessly sun kissed and super low maintenance.”
“Icy white hair made a strong comeback last year and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. With so much attention on glass hair this season, I’d say go for hi-shine clear glosses at home in between salon visits. Try Oribe color gloss, this really takes the look to the next level.”
“I’m not a huge fan of rose brown hair. It is one of those in between looks that often look brassy or overly pink. I say pick one route and do it really well. Brunettes wanting a safer change should go for balayage highlights and gloss with a copper hue. If seeking bolder change, go for the blonde highlight and tint to a vintage rosy pink.”
“Coffee balayage keeps making an appearance with new names and with such luxe hues, I can see why. It is very similar to the tiger eye trend. Think caramels, amber and rich brunettes. I love this look for brunettes craving super dimensional color while maintaining their brunette image. To achieve, I paint golden baby lights into client’s natural color.”
Which Fall trend will you be asking Tamara DeFelice (or your personal colorist) for on your next appointment?
