You don't have to necessarily lighten up for spring. Colorist Marie Robinson suggests going to the opposite side of the spectrum with chocolate brown. "I think this hair color will be big because it doesn't compete with spring's bright colors, and bold prints fashion trends," explains Robinson. Plus, the "cool, deep color looks so beautiful against all skin tones."

Are you a blonde wanting to try red? Robinson recommends trying strawberry golden blonde. "It adds color to skin and creates a warm golden glow even if you don't tan," notes Robinson.

Comtemplating bold red? Redken Creative Consultant Tracey Cunningham predicts the color is "going to dominate the spring color trend, especially as we head into awards season with so many redheads being nominated." For those who already red, she suggests changing things up by "adding some babylights to transition into the warmer months."

For a more in-your-face blonde, it's time to consider doubling down on the bleach. "Blondes are always popular for spring too, and I love adding highlights to frame the face and give a brighter look," says Cunningham. Celeb colorist Sharon Dorram adds, "Start with a golden blonde base, whether it's natural or from a single process color, and then ask your colorist for golden blond and baby blond highlights and to go slightly lighter on the ends."

Just Like Honey

We just adore this mix of color. The perfect blend between blonde and brown, this "classic neutral suits everyone," says Dorram. "Honey hair can have many variations but I think we'll be seeing a more soft, one tone honey blonde this season." Prefer something a littler deeper but no less sweet? Greg Ruggeri, owner of Salon Ruggeri, suggests burnt caramel. "Starting from a warmer brunette at the roots, the speckling of color gradually makes it way to the very tips."

A Better Blend

We LOVE some subtle highlights. Run this article by your colorist when it comes to your next dye job. "Whether you're a blonde or brunette, "deeper roots and multi-dimensional ends will still be a trend, but with less contrast between the tones, making a softer, less harsh," says Lucie Doughty, John Paul Mitchell Systems Editorial Director.

Even if you're not a natural blonde, consider spring the right time to fake it. "A more rooted natural blonde will still make you feel modern and fresh in the new year," says Kari Hill, L'Oréal Paris Celebrity Colorist. "Doing this draws your eye to bright ends while keeping dimension at the root."

Are you a high-maintenance chic? Then high impact platinum is an excellent option. "Going much lighter and significantly brighter will definitely be a trend," reports Hill. "It's a bigger commitment all around but makes a serious statement."
