Ashy lavender, blush highlights, and more.


At this point, there’s only one thing getting us through the hellish nightmare that is winter: the fact that there’s a fresh crop of spring hair colors waiting for us on the other side. Come March 20—winter’s ~official~ funeral—we’re taking our sad, blah hair to warmer, prettier heights. And if you’re not quite ready to part with your winter hue, we’re here to make you forget all about that 2017 shade (chestnut brown, who?), because we’ve rounded up the seven hair colors that are going to blow up your Instagram feed this spring. Scope out your favorites, hit up your colorist, and thank us later.

1 Ashy Violet

If the folks at Pantone know anything (and they do—they know everything), we’re going to be seeing a lot of ultra-violet tones in the beauty sphere this year. When it comes to hair, though, we're digging ashy, muted shades of violet and lavender, which makes the trend crazy wearable and easy.

2 Face-Framing Balayage

Save all-over balayage for the summer, because a few-face-framing sections of caramel-blonde is all you'll need this spring.

3 Strawberry Blonde

The beauty world has finally circled back to single-processed hues, and creamy shades of strawberry blondes are coming in hot. Or, like, luke-warm, because it's still barely spring.

4 Exposed Roots

Platinum is here to stay, but it's taking a grungy spin in 2018. Rather than icy, one-dimensional platinums, this season will incorporate bold, deeply shaded roots. The best part? Exposed roots = less time and money at the salon for touch ups.

5 Warm, Honey Blonde
