Transform Your Look With These Hair Colour Trends 2020
Spring is the season for all things colour – the flowers are beginning to blossom, and the sun is finally easing its way out of hibernation, which is the perfect excuse to get a little creative with your hair shades ready for summer. Especially having been at home in lockdown for the past few weeks, we can imagine that, just like us, you are dreaming of treating yourself to a well-needed pamper when life returns to normal. And you’re in luck, this year, the most popular hair colour trends really are beautiful, and it was so hard for us just to pick a few! Nevertheless, we’ve put together nine ideas for you to take your pick, so let’s take a closer look at the following shades:
- Buttercream Blondie
- Rose Gold
- Faded Pastel
- Shadowed Roots
- Orchard Red
- Golden Twilighting
- Bold Copper
- Coconut Blonde
- Inky Black
If you are a lover of more traditional, natural hair colours, then you are going to adore the buttercream blonde shade. As a super sophisticated creamy blonde, a handful of both warm and cool shades are mixed together to give you an effortlessly sunkissed look that glows in the sunshine. You can enjoy a perfectly balanced combination of honey, caramel, baby blonde and champagne tones all rolled into one. And even better, it is entirely your choice as to whether you opt for a bright and light blonde or go warmer with more of a buttery colour. This is a super versatile trend which can easily be altered to complement the complexion of everyone! It is also perfect if you have hair extensions because the array of stunning tones used makes it so easy to colour match wefts.

Back in February, Refinery29 predicted that rose gold hair would make a huge comeback in spring 2020, and we can most definitely say that they were on the right track! Whether you go for a more subtle rose-dipped ends or go bold with a full head of platinum pink, this shade is guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd. If you’re not too sure whether you’re ready to take the plunge and dye your hair permanently rose gold, then why not experiment with a temporary alternative in the meantime? Reputable brands such as BLEACH LONDON have designed a rose gold colour cream which allows you to semi-permanently add a hint of the shade to your natural locks, helping you to make the all-important decision!

Rose gold hair brings us swiftly onto our next trend, faded pastel. With some of our favourite celebrities from the Kardashian-Jenner family to Rita Ora all sporting spring-inspired shades, pastel hair is here to stay! While we originally saw pastel coloured hair grow in popularity as a festival style, it’s now become an everyday look for those looking to add a pop of colour – and we must admit, we love it! There are absolutely tonnes of gorgeous shades to choose from; whether it may be soft pinks, purples or ocean blues, you can make it Coachella every day!
If you do choose to keep colourful hair for the long-run, then don’t forget to apply regular hair treatments to keep your locks looking and feeling healthy!

Feel like you wake up in the morning and all of a sudden your roots have grown in? Fed up of having to visit your favourite hair salon every six weeks for a colour top-up? Well, we’ve got your back! One of our favourite trends of this year is shadowed roots, which is a super low maintenance technique which focuses on keeping your roots dark while the ends stay light. Whether you go for an ashy blonde or caramel brunette, a darker tone will be applied directly to the roots before being seamlessly blended into softer shades. This means that even when your hair begins to grow, your roots will camouflage perfectly into the shadowed section, making them unnoticeable!

For those who live for dark hair but want to add a subtle twist, orchard red would be the perfect trend for incorporating a hint of colour. If you haven’t heard of orchard red before, think of Zendaya’s staple dark brunette with undertones of copper and auburn. While many associate warm red shades with autumn and winter, they look equally, if not more, stunning in the warmer months, able to perfectly catch the sun for a radiant glow. The easiest way to achieve the orchard red look is to go for a multidimensional balayage which will ensure that all shades are balanced, keeping the colour deep while merging rich tones.
Another one for our brunettes – and when we say twilighting, we don’t mean a Bella Swan and Edward Cullen situation, although there are slight similarities! Instead, twilighting involves small pops of golden shades which intertwines with a dark base colour. When underneath the glorious sunshine, the hints of gold will twinkle – imagine the Bella and Edward sparkling skin scene in Twilight. To achieve twilighting, instead of highlights, a combination of balayage and foil techniques are used, which helps the overall appearance to be more natural. Many opt for putting more light shades around the front to frame the face.
Copper is a shade that has been around for years, and it definitely isn’t going anywhere any time soon! While a rustier copper has been much-loved in the past, this year we’re going bolder than ever with a bright shade featuring a combination of both copper with hints of gold. Whether you have a short bob or rapunzel-style locks, copper looks beautiful on all hairstyles – it particularly suits big and bouncy curls. Complete your copper curls with a statement hair accessory, and you’re good to go!

Last year we saw platinum blonde steal the show and this spring we have something very similar for you, just with a slight difference. Much like platinum, coconut blonde is one of the palest blondes that you can experiment with but still features subtle undertones of gold, which is perfect for a warmer alternative. If you have darker natural hair, then not to worry, you can go for a toasted coconut blonde, which remains dark at the root before gradually transitioning into lighter tones towards the ends. This works great when you have professional hair extensions fitted as you can choose a lighter weft which will make the appearance even brighter.

Last but most definitely not least is the inky black hair trend! Just because the sun is out, it doesn’t mean that you have to only go for brightening your hair so if you’re not a fan of lighter shades, then this is the perfect solution for you. Inky black allows you to stick with the jet black that you have always adored, but with a slight hint of blue which can only be seen when caught at the right angle in the light. This is a super stylish way to put a unique twist on black hair without having to go bold with statement colours!
