These 5 Hair Colors Will Be the Most Requested in Salons This Summer

Looking at the weather forecast, it appears summer has finally arrived. As we plan our summer wardrobes and holidays, it’s only natural to want to switch up our looks and even go for a shorter look. There’s something about summertime that always encourages us to switch up our hair color, too. Whether we opt for a few sun-kissed slices of color through our lengths or experiment with an entirely new hue, there’s an optimistic mood as the days become longer and the sun (hopefully) shines. And hair colorists are seeing appointments book up as we plan our color for the summer.

“Whatever color you go for, it’s important to protect your hair from damage,” says Paul Percival, founder of Percy & Reed. He recommends using a regular mask to keep your hair—and color—in top condition.

If you’re looking for some summer hair color inspiration, then look no further. We spoke to some of the top salons and hair colorists to find out exactly what hues are going to be big news for 2022. Prepared to be inspired and get your hair colorist on speed dial.

Keep your blonde looking vibrant by using a heat-protecting spray on your hair. Your color will last much longer.

High-end brunette has been trending for 2022, and it’s showing no signs of stopping for summer. “Luxury Brunette will continue to be big this summer,” says Seniz Alkan, color artistic director at Neville Hair and Beauty. “This is a color that cannot be achieved through at-home box color due to the multitude of deep luscious layers that are placed throughout the hair. The hair color shimmers and glimmers in natural light, and the end result is multidimensional with luxury depth.”

Lighter colors shine on top of a dark space and give natural brunettes a summer update.

Multidimensional colors bounce light from the hair, giving a glossy look.

Keep brunette tones looking shiny with this color-depositing mask. It will keep hair in good condition between salon visits.

Not sure what hair color to go for? Having a consultation with your hair colorist can give you guidance. Your colorist will be able to give you direction on what suits you, from color to placement to what will help bring out your features and suit your style.

Color placement around the face can frame your features.

“Using a delicate touch to slice sections just below the crown, I divide the hair in two before applying the color of the client’s choice,” says Alkan. “By using this color technique, I can create a pop of vivid color underneath, which blends beautifully with the natural color and overlaps it.”

Summer weather isn’t always kind to your hair color. UV rays can fade and distort it, so use products with a UV filter to help counter the effects.

If you’re feeling experimental for summer, then you’ll be pleased to hear that punk-inspired, bold hair color is trending. “Punk hair is back with fun, bold colors seen on many celebs right now,” says Percival. “Bright colors will bring you out of your comfort zone, but it’s great to be adventurous with vivid tones, and summer is a great time for this.”

Want to dip your toe in the trend? “Contrast color is also still huge,” says Percival. “Putting a dark tone underneath and lighter on top works particularly well on bobs and mid-lengths because it makes the hair look thicker.”

Vivid colors can take their toll on damaged hair, so a regular treatment will keep hair healthy-looking.
