We don’t see metallic hair dying out anytime soon. Recently, this trend has become even more dazzling with the addition of a shimmery sheen—so now you can match your hair color to your shimmery makeup!

Hair experts like Peter Thomsen, Australian L'Oréal Professionnel brand ambassador, adore the brand’s Professionnel’s Color Addict Shimmer hair color range.

“We’re seeing makeup that’s all reflective, clothing that’s more reflective, and now we’re adding that to hair,” he says.

Take your hair color inspiration from the iridescent hair color looks these pros love recreating in the salon.

Silver Steel

With women embracing their natural beauty through gray hair, silver hair has quickly become a top fashion color for the younger crowd!

Ask your stylist about Color Addict’s silver option for true shimmer.

Frosty Pink

This sweet pink shade is a beautiful frosty pastel, perfect for those who want to inject some makeup-inspired color into their look while also giving off an “incredible metallic shine,” according to Thomsen.

“Color Addict pink is incredible to work with,” he adds.

This shade is also perfect for those wishing to jump on board the rose gold trend train. If you want a shade that’s similar in color but more shimmery in effect, ask your colorist for this frosty pink shade if you want your rose gold to stand out against the rest!

Lustrous Lavender

If you don’t want a major color commitment, why not blend subtle lavender accents throughout your blonde base? According to Jonathan Colombini, L'Oréal Professionnel brand ambassador, the best part about this shimmer range is that you can also add it on top of light hair colors, so that “it doesn’t shift or move your natural tone.”

For brunettes, Color Addict Shimmer’s chocolate mauve will add just the right amount of twinkle to your brown shade!

Up your pastel hair game and find your perfect metallic shade this summer!
