This Hair Color is All That and A Bag of Potato Chips!

Ha! Do you remember that saying? I probably said it a little too much when I was younger. Did you have a 90’s catch phrase? Let me know in the comments!

So, last weekend we talked about how the 90’s/00’s were going to be influencing hair trends this Spring. Let's dive straight into the fun world of hair color!

When you hear 90’s/00’s hair color what comes to mind? That burgundy and yellow stripe look? (We call it peanut butter, jelly hair.) Ok so you can relax, I don’t see any signs of THAT coming back, but when you think back there was some iconic hair. I mean who didn’t know ‘THE RACHEL’.

So let's take a look at how we’re updating those iconic looks for this SPRING!

-High Contrast

So in the 90’s/00’s you saw this everywhere with the chunky highlights. Think Kelly Clarkson circa ‘02. The modern version of this is ‘money pieces’ or a bold balayage.

With the money pieces you’ll see them a few shades lighter to brighten the face, if you have light hair some people are going dark for an edge look and some people that don’t want to commit to a full head of a fashion color are jumping of this trend to experience the fun of a funky color with low commitment.

With a bold balayage (which is normally paired with money pieces) it is still the same tried and true technique with a bit of a heavier hand. So it’s still low maintenance since the lightener is not put all the way to the root, but you’ll see thicker lightened pieces as opposed to the traditional just back from vacation/very natural look.

Either option is a great way to awaken your look after a cold winter!

-Warm Blonde

We are going to be seeing less and less of the ashy cool toned blondes and more blonde with some warmth behind it. Reminiscent of 90’s supermodels, you’ll be seeing plenty of super bright but still warm blondes this spring. Purple shampoo will still be your best friend however to keep those orange tones out and your blonde golden.

If maintenance doesn’t scare you there are plenty of people taking this all the way up to the root. If you are looking for a modern take on this look a root shadow can help with the grow out and soften the look.

-Chestnut Brown

This is a great option if you just want to dip your toes in the water when it comes to changing it up for Spring.

Chestnut Brown is perfect for warming up your natural color and if done with a glaze or semi-permanent color means no commitment. This color is reminiscent of some amazing actresses of the 90’s like Jennifer Connolly and (my fav) Sandra Bullock or music superstars like Alanis Morissette.

So what do you think? Do any of these trends inspire you to change your look up for spring? Share below!

Until next time, enjoy all the beauty around us including who’s looking back at you in the mirror!
