There’s something about a new season that makes us feel like changing up our hair. Do you know that feeling? It’s pretty common, and honestly, we love it! There’s nothing like a fresh cut or color to lift your spirits and get you pumped for what’s to come. That’s why we turned to Global Artistic Director for Hair Color, Ian Michael Black, and asked him to share the shades he’s loving for spring and summer, what inspires him when he’s concocting color, and how to change up your look without doing something drastic.
According to Ian, it’s time to warm up. “The biggest trend for the warmer months is the return to much warmer-toned hair,” Ian says. “Blondes are being toned soft pink-ambers, or rich golden saffron shades. The boldest will go for either an on-trend “ultraviolet” hue or a bright Mandarin orange tone — it’s the perfect mix of a strong orange with yellow undertones to give a true sunshine color.”
