Looking for back to school hair colors that'll rock your world? We’ve got three of them. We solicited advice from George Papanikolas, Matrix brand ambassador and stylist, about all things hair color.

When it comes to achieving beautiful colors that hit the mark, look no further than out expert-recommended shades. Time to take notes! If you've been researching dark brown hair ideas and ash blonde hair ideas, don't be afraid to take your color choices to the next level.

Burgundy is the perfect color for a back to school fresh start! This bright pop of color is a gamechanger that works on all textures and haircuts. We especially love the playfulness of a blunt bob paired with burgundy.

Burgundy is a great look for brunettes who want a change with an edge...It looks especially good on those with olive or dark complexions.
You heard the stylist: Channel your inner burgundy babe now!

Chocolate Brown

Chocolate brown is a beautifully sweet shade that your stylist can build on with smart placement. If you want to add some dimension, try honey-glazed balayage for impressive results. For a darker take on the whole look, how about subtle caramel highlights for a delectable experience?

Keep your hair in tip-top shape with Matrix Biolage R.A.W Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner. The options really are endless with these cute hair colors for back to school.

Do you want to make a bold color statement at school? Look no further than fiery orange! This bright shade is exactly what you need to put the drama in dramatic. It works on all textures and hair types, creating a look that speaks volumes!

“Whenever possible, use tints to create the color rather than bleaching and toning. This can help give it more longevity,” Papanikolas says.

To keep your dazzling locks feeling beautiful, MatrixBiolage Colorlast Mask is here to wrap your strands in goodness and keep your color looking incredible. Exactly what you want for your hair!

School’s not the only thing in session—hair color is in, too!
