Even though we’re still obsessed with the blonde hair color trends of this year, we’re already looking ahead to what shades we can expect to see next. According to Jackie Epperson, a L’Oréal Professionnel artist, there are plenty of gorgeous blonde hues on the rise for 2019. The colorist shares five blonde hair colors she predicts will be huge in the coming months.If you’re reading this to find the perfect one for you, you’re in luck.
We’re breaking down everything you need to know about Epperson’s blonde hair picks including how to achieve them, who they’re best for, and the products you need for post-salon care.
There are so many variants of a platinum power blonde and depending on skin tone, you can live in a slightly more buttery power blonde....if icy colors look better on you, glossing to create a cooler silvery tone may be better.
Epperson explains that going platinum blonde can be a serious commitment. If you’re not looking to hit the salon every few weeks, she suggests steering clear of the shade.
“Three to four weeks is the best amount of time to head to the salon for a retouch...so it is not for the faint of heart,” Epperson says.
No matter which look you choose, aftercare is essential for keeping your platinum hair looking and feeling it’s absolute best. Epperson recommends in-salon treatments like the L’Oréal Professionnel Smartbond and Powermix. She also suggests picking up a neutralizing shampoo like the L’Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Magnesium Silver Shampoo. Formulated with an anti-yellowing agent to neutralize yellow tones, it leaves hair feeling soft and looking shiny.
Warm honey blonde is one of Epperson’s favorite shades simply because of how versatile it is. If having a high-maintenance color is a concern for you, she recommends asking your colorist for a honey blonde balayage.
“Balayage can give them a soft grow out and naturally looks as if the sun has given them this look,” Epperson says.
If you don’t mind frequent salon visits, however, opt for an all-over honey blonde color with a pop of highlights.
A shampoo and conditioner system specially formulated for blonde hair is a must. Epperson recommends the L’Oréal Professionnel Blondifier line.
The level of color maintenance depends on the bronde shade you choose. Epperson says the look can be tailored to fit those with tight schedules or people who don’t mind a bit of maintenance.
“For less maintenance, stick to balayage or foilyage...if you are looking for more of an all over bronde look, you may opt for full highlights and base color,” Epperson says.
Your colorist will need to use bleach to achieve your desired shade of bronde—which can leave your hair with significant damage. Epperson recommends the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Ripidium line.
Low maintenance clients should opt for a balayage with soft lowlights. This technique allows you more time before needing to touch up your color. If you’re not afraid of a little maintenance, go bold with a blend of highlights and lowlights!
Multi-dimensional blonde looks best when it’s vibrant—which means your hair care routine should focus on keeping your hue as bright as possible. Try the L’Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Color A-OX Shampoo and Conditioner for color radiance.
With Epperson’s tips, you’re ready to determine which blonde hair will be perfect for you in 2019!
