Thinking about changing up your hair color? Hair featured on the runways of the Spring Fashion shows is having a big impact on color trends, according to Clairol Color Director Marie Robinson, who’s worked with Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Rachel McAdams.
“There are two trends happening in hair that will dictate hair color for Spring 2012,” Marie says. “Because hair style will have a modern resemblance to the 1940s and early 1970s cinema, hair color will have soft all over glow with natural reflection instead of the ombre trend we’ve been seeing.”
Marie says it’s possible to achieve these hair trends at home, but it’s important to stay within two to three shades of your current color for best results. “If you’re contemplating a more drastic change (i.e. blonde to black), I recommend you visit a salon,” she says.
IF YOU’RE A BRUNETTE:
Brunettes will have very natural dimension of sunny golds or beige hues for light browns, and darker buttery gold and maple hues for medium browns.
