18 New Hair Colors That Scream Spring

Spring is in the air! A lot of us are ready to shed the winter blues and go for a new hair color. This season gives you many choices. From bold and bright to soft and simple, choosing your new spring hair color will be the hardest part!

Warm Dimensional Blonde

Warm caramel intertwined with bright blonde gives a brighter look all over that doesn’t have to be ultra light.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium skin tones that look good in warmer colors wear this color best. Hair that is straight will make pulling it back into this overlapping half up style a breeze.

Tip:

Make sure to have bobby pins that match your hair when pinning back. Take sections of your hair from the front, sweep them back, pin, then repeat from the opposite side. Continue this method until all desired hair is pinned up. Make sure to spray in place with a hairspray like Pravana’s Supershape.

Bold Face Framing

Bold color placement right around your face will brighten you up and add a kick to your strands this season.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium skin tones that look great in warmer colors wear this golden hue best, while hair that is colored or naturally a medium to dark brown will help to give the contrast of this bold look.

Tip:

Golden not your color? Try red, copper, or different shades of blonde! Whatever suits your skin tone and hair color best.

Violet Vixen

Deep violet is paired up with lighter shades of red to create depth and dimension in this amazing color!

Deep Violet Haircolor with Depth

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Skin tones that look great in deep blues, violets and reds look great in this violet and red toned color. Thick hair that has some wave or soft curl to it will achieve this style easily with just a blow dryer and round brush.

Tip:

To protect your color and achieve a fabulous blowout, I recommend Pravana’s NEVO Moisture Rich shampoo and conditioner in the shower and Model Behavior for a sleek and soft blow dry.

Bronze Beige

Not too blonde, but not brown either, bronze is one of my favorite hair colors! The natural-looking highlights melt together giving an all over lighter look.

Bronze Beige Haircolor with Natural Highlights

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Fair to medium skin tones look great in this ‘bronde’ color. Hair that is naturally curly or wavy and starting at a light brown or dark blonde is the best base for both the hair color and soft waves.

Tip:

This is a great transition color if you’re wanting to go from dark to light. Adding a bronze hue and lightening in stages will help to avoid damaging your hair. The bonus is a beautiful in between color!

Golden Copper

A soft golden copper paired with fine lighter highlights brightens your face and eyes this spring! Soft curls makes this a style that can easily move from day to night.

Golden Copper Haircolor with Fine Highlights

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light skinned beauties that look good in purples, greens and blues wear this color nicely. Hair that is starting at dark blonde and is medium to fine will carry this style best.

Tip:

If you have fine hair, highlights can really be your friend when done correctly! They give your hair a bit of texture which will make it feel and look fuller. Seeing a professional colorist will ensure that you keep the integrity of your hair.

Multi-Dimensional

Beautiful bronze, caramel, and warm brown tones intertwine creating depth, dimension, and a beautiful hair color for spring!

Multi Dimensional Haircolor with Bronze Caramel and BrownMulti Dimensional Haircolor with Bronze Caramel and Brown Side

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium skin tones that look fabulous in warmer tones wear this multi tonal color well. Hair that is thick will achieve this style best, while hair that is a medium to light brown is a perfect starting point for your stylist to work from.

Tip:

Make sure to be very open with your stylist about previous color and chemical services. This will make it easier for them to give you your chosen color. Pictures of what you want to achieve with your appointment will also help to make sure you both are on the same page.

A Little Bit of Blue

Oh the fun of adding a few fine highlights of a brighter color like blue! A change like this brightens your dark color and makes you the envy of everyone at the office!

Dark Haircolor with Fine Bright Blue HighlightsDark Haircolor with Fine Bright Blue Highlights Side

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Medium skin tones and those who tend to wear dark blues, violets and black look great in this hue. Hair that is naturally or colored dark is the best starting point for this color, while straight medium to fine hair is a must for this cropped cut.

Tip:

Blues must be prelightened before they will show up bright and bold. Talk to your colorist about the process to make sure that you are booked for enough time. If highlights aren’t in your budget or time frame, ask for a glazing of blue over some of your dark locks. It won’t be as bright or last quite as long, but it’s a great starting point!

Red with a Copper Twist

Deep red hair with bits of copper highlights give this look a fun twist! If you are already a redhead, adding copper is a great way to make deeper red hair pop.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium toned skin that has a pink undertone looks great in this red and copper hue, while hair that is medium in thickness and straight or curly can easily achieve this curled look using a curling wand or iron.

Tip:

Sometimes your hair will need a little TLC this time of year as it recovers from winter. Ask your stylist for a deep conditioning treatment that you can use weekly to keep your newly colored locks moisturized and shiny.

Copper Penny

A rich copper penny is not only beautiful, but easy to pull off as your natural color too!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Fair to light skin tones that tend to look best in pinks, greens and corals wear this color like it’s their own! Hair that is medium to thick in density and straight to wavy will make this haircut super easy to style.

Tip:

Red and copper hair is the hardest color to keep bright, so consult with your colorist about recommended shampoos and conditioners to keep your red bright and beautiful!

Dishwater No More!

Ditch the dishwater blonde and brighten things up with soft highlights of medium and light natural-looking blondes.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Fair to medium skin tones look great in this soft dark blonde color. Hair that is naturally curly or wavy and starting at a light brown or dark blonde will make this color and style easy to achieve.

Tip:

Before choosing a colorist, check them out online! Most have professionals have websites and social media accounts displaying their work. Also, book a consultation to discuss your new color before diving in!

Beach Ready Blonde

The weather has just started to warm up, but you want to be beach ready! Lots of blonde highlights paired with light brown lowlights will keep some depth in your strands while getting summer blonde.

Blonde Highlights with Light Brown Lowlights HaircolorBlonde Highlights with Light Brown Lowlights Haircolor Side

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium skin tones that look great in blues, pinks and purples wear this color well. Hair that is starting out at either a super light blonde (and you add lowlights) or a light brown (and you add highlights) will help to achieve this color.

Tip:

When going lighter or maintaining lighter hair, the process can really be drying to your locks. Ask your stylist for their recommendations for your specific hair. Ask about not only shampoos, conditioners and deep treatments, but also styling products that can add moisture, protect from heat styling, and give you added shine.

Blurred Lines

Highlights and lowlights are always a fun way to change up the color of your hair, but adding some in different tones and sizes gives you a whole new look!

Blonde Haircolor with Highlights and LowlightsBlonde Haircolor with Highlights and Lowlights Side

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium skin tones that tend to wear more neutral colors wear this high and lowlighted look best, while hair that is worn straight will really showcase the colors and make this bob haircut pop.

Tip:

If your hair needs some help getting straight, make sure you use a heat protectant to save it from flat iron and blow drying damage. Never use your flat iron any higher 390 degrees on color treated hair!

Yellow Pop!

Adding a pop of a pastel color like yellow (or blue, purple, pink or green) is not only fun, but becoming more acceptable at many offices across the US (hooray!).

Yellow Pastel HaircolorYellow Pastel Haircolor Side

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium skin tones that have bright blonde hair to start with are the perfect canvas for adding a pop of color.  The pop of color will depend more on the undertones of your skin. If you tend to wear cooler colors, then lavenders, teals, blues and pinks are for you. If you lean more towards warmer colors, then yellows, corals and greens are made for you to wear!

Tip:

Want the pop without the commitment? Try using chalk or clip-in extensions for a one shampoo pop of color. You could change it up every weekend!

The Perfect Combo

Bright blonde highlights with soft curls equals the perfect combination for a spring day or evening!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to medium skin tones that wear brighter colors like blue, white and purple will look fabulous in this look. Hair that is cut into layers with a side-swept fringe and is medium to thick in texture is perfect for creating this head full of soft curls.

Tip:

Using your natural color as a base for these bright blonde highlights gives you depth at your scalp and texture throughout. Plus it helps with your grow out between appointments!

Brunette Goddess

Warm, rich brunette with a warm, lighter brown highlights creates a soft and flattering color that will get you attention all over this spring!

Warm Rich Brunette Haircolor with Light Brown HighlightsWarm Rich Brunette Haircolor with Light Brown Highlights Side

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Medium to dark skin tones that look good in neutral tones (like beige, white and black) carry this color nicely, while hair that is naturally dark already and in great condition transitions to this color wonderfully!

Tip:

To achieve a color similar to the picture, you want to make sure that the highlights don’t take over. Spaced out highlights that are a shade or two lighter work best. Make sure to discuss this with your colorist!

All About That Depth

Create a younger look by simply keeping a slight shadow at your scalp. Blonde and light brown lowlights are continued throughout the rest of the length, but keeping the depth at the scalp and underneath will take years off!

Haircolor with Blonde and Brown LowlightsHaircolor with Blonde and Brown Lowlights Side

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Any skin tone can wear this versatile color. Hair that may need a touch up every 4-5 weeks is perfect for this shadowed, highlighted look. Hair that is finer in texture and density and straight is great for this haircut.

Tip:

By keeping a shadow near the scalp and highlights softly blended, it allows you to skip the highlights on those every 4-5 week touch up appointments, saving you not only time, but money too!

Lighter in the Front

Placing highlights a few shades lighter around your face not only brightens your face but also gives you a brighter, more youthful look!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Any skin tone can wear this lighter around the face highlight! Hair that is straight and medium to thick in texture is a perfect canvas to create this haircut and style.

Tip:

The best part of this look is that it isn’t too light. Make sure that you talk to your stylist about keeping it just two shades lighter than your natural (or colored) hair.

Violet Dream

Orchid fading into violet makes this look so fun and trendy this spring!

Orchid Fading Into Violet HaircolorOrchid Fading Into Violet Haircolor Front

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light to dark complexions can all wear this bright and fun ombre’, especially those that look fabulous in violets, blues and teals. Hair that is strong on the ends is a must for the lightening that creates the base for this violet.

Tip:

The less you wash, the longer your color will last! Try dry shampoo for in between days. I love Pravana’s Fresh volumizing dry shampoo.

Bold and bright or soft and subtle, the hair colors for this spring are ready for you to try. The hardest part is deciding with one is for you! If you’re still unsure, make a consultation appointment with your colorist and bring in pictures of your favorites!
