Does the sight of your hair make you feel frumpy or dull?  Are you in need of a breath of fresh air to enliven your look?  Or are you just ready for a change?  Then you’re in luck because this year’s range  of hair colors is anything but forgettable.  From the pages of fashion to the style of the runways to the looks on the red carpet, 2014 is all about tonal changes that range from subtle to sublime.  

Interested in an understated hair lift? Cooler tones, from blonde to brunette, add an updated, sophisticated edge to last year’s hues. Icy blondes (think Julianne Hough) and chestnut browns (hello, Mila Kunis!) are in this year, as are monochromatic locks with incredible shine (we love Katy Perry’s return  to her roots).  

Blonde and want to go to the darker side or brunette and want to try a lighter hue?  Ask your stylist for Brown Sugar! This is the perfect shade to try out if you are looking for a new look without a full commitment.  And of course multi-dimensional hair color with face-framing highlights that brighten is perennially in style, so if you are looking for that well-rested vacation look, just ask your stylist to weave in a complementary tone or two to freshen up your current look.

Looking for a major hair-color over haul?  Think red!  This year’s most inspiring trend is an updated version of rosy blonde.  Soft.  Bold.  Flattering.  Beautiful.  Re-invent your look with Rose Gold Blonde. Ask your stylist to mix in honey, apricot, and golden hues to create a shimmering dimensional  effect.  Celebrities like Blake Lively finish off their look with delicate ivory highlights around the face to soften and brighten. 

Whatever your inspiration, this year’s playful palette is sure to excite and delight!
