There’s something about the first sign of warm weather that immediately pulls us to the salon. With winter finally behind us and summer on the horizon, we’re thinking about trading in our dark brown hair for a hue that’s more fitting for the rising temperatures. If you’re looking to get your summer started with a fun and daring hue, we have good news: Bright hair colors are trending for 2019!

Wondering which bright hair color is right for you? Whether you want to upgrade your ash blonde hair or go completely bold with your color, these are the 10 hues that will instantly brighten up your life.

 

White

Interested in lightening and brightening your blonde? It doesn’t get much brighter than white hair color. Though white hair shines like freshly fallen snow, the cool-toned platinum shade will definitely be sticking around for the warmer months.

It takes a lot of maintenance to keep stark white strands from becoming brassy, so you’ll want to load your hair care routine with color-protecting products. First, we recommend swapping out your regular shampoo for Biolage’s ColorLast Purple Shampoo to neutralize brassy and yellow tones.

White hair color may require a bleach session (or several) before you achieve your desired hue. Since bleach can take a toll on the look and feel of your strands, incorporate a weekly hair treatment into your routine. We recommend the Biolage ColorLast Deep Treatment Hair Pack for color-treated hair.

 

 

Cream Blonde

Move over platinum blonde—there’s a warmer, sunnier hue coming to steal your thunder. Cream blonde is a buttery, yellow-toned shade that incorporates notes of cool and warm. The best part? It looks amazing with a tan!

 

Neon

If you’ve never thought about trying a neon hair color before, these ultra saturated, celebrity-approved hues should be on your radar for summer 2019.

New to neon hair? Since vibrant hues are notoriously time-consuming to maintain, you’ll need to make a few changes to your hair care routine. We recommend starting with the Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo and Conditioner system for high-maintenance colors.

 

Hot Pink

If you adore pastel pink but have bright hues on the brain, you can’t go wrong with hot pink. It’s vibrant, adventurous, and looks stunning on tan and dark skin tones.

 

Living Coral

Living coral gives us serious under the sea vibes—which makes it ideal for days spent at the beach. Dubbed Pantone’s 2019 Color Of The Year, you’ll want to try this one while it’s still hot!

 

Bright Copper

If you’re already sporting neutral copper locks, amp things up with a brighter variation of the orangey-red hue. From vibrant strawberry to deep ginger, the possibilities for copper hair creations are endless!

 

 

Marigold

This yellow-orange hue is as close to hair that shines are brightly as the bun. Unlike the low-maintenance flower it’s named after, marigold hair color requires a lot of TLC to keep its vibrancy in full bloom. Be sure to start your hair care routine with a shampoo and conditioner system for color-treated hair like the Biolage R.A.W Color Care. Formulated with coconut milk and meadowfoam, the system helps protect color-treated hair, leaving it soft and shiny with lasting color vibrancy.

 

Sunset

Though sunset hair color is nothing new, who could grow tired of a color trend that makes your strands resemble a gorgeous sunset? We’ll take this stunning blend of vivid pink, orange, yellow, and purple tones year after year!

 

Lavender

If the weather is warming up but you’re looking to keep your strands cool, why not try lavender hair color? This vibrant purple hue packs a seriously bright punch (and also looks stunning on pale skin tones).

 

 

Rainbow

For 2019, we’re feeling brave when it comes to salon color—really brave. That’s why if you’re opting for a bright hair color this summer, we recommend going bold with rainbow hair. Whether you decide on a full head of rainbow strands or peekaboo color, this whimsical blend of color is sure to brighten things up.
