Summer Hair Tips and Trends 2017

Summer is heating up and so are summer hair trends! Everyone seems to be more active as the days grow longer and brighter. Summer haircuts need to look good enough to take you from sunlit brunches to warm evenings on the town! What are the hottest trends in summer hair? What is the right color and style for you? Let’s check out what the experts have to say! The fashion editors at Elle advise that cool blondes, platinums (white blondes), and defined highlights are among the hottest summer hair color trends.1 They also suggest that peach will be trending for summer. Peach is a color that looks especially striking on “sun-kissed” skin, making it the perfect look for summer.

What makes a great color for your skin tone? The best hair color for cool skin tone is a “blue-based” color “like platinum, flaxen, and champagne blond to flatter your ivory complexion,” according to InStyle. 2 Warm skin tones are “best against hues of butterscotch, strawberry blond, and honey.” By contrast, the best hair color for olive skin is actually a “toasty” hue, such as “chestnut brown, auburn, and cinnamon.” And, the best hair color for tan skin, or warm skin tone, in addition to the pastel peach color, might be “tawny blond, golden caramel, or copper.”

Waves, braids, and shorter styles are also among the hair trends for summer, according to Elle.3 When you want to make a great impression with little effort, even in the heat and humidity of summer, you cannot beat these simple hairstyles. Summer hair trends are moving toward simplicity and toward keeping your hair off your face so you can feel the cool breeze on your neck. What do you think about these summer hair trends? Do hairstyle trends fascinate you? Do you want to prepare for a new career where you can work with the latest hairstyles in a salon setting?
