New Summer hair Color Trends

Summer marks a time for fresh starts – even for our hair! From adding lavender highlights to your blonde locks or going brunette altogether, there are lots of exciting color trends you can try this season.

Maintain your locks with a top knot

Maintain your locks during warm temperatures with a tight top knot that’s both stylish and functional. Think Salma Hayek for inspiration! Add layers for an intimate yet romantic finish!

Mermaid Waves

Summertime is the time for effortless mermaid waves – they create an easygoing yet polished style perfect for beach bums or wedding guests! There is no wrong way to achieve this look; its versatility will surely make an impactful statement.

Mermaid waves are 2021’s take on beach waves, yet differ by being more sculpted and less windswept. Additionally, these looser-fitting waves tend to look more like loose kinks or waves instead of defined curls.

Pairing mermaid waves with half-up styles is an effortless way to elevate this effortless style, as it showcases your hair’s texture while drawing attention away from your face and eyes. Add face-framing baby braids for an exciting boho touch, or wear it as a high ponytail with a scrunchie for maximum flexibility!

Internal Layers

As its name implies, invisible layers create an entirely different style for layered hair. While traditional layers are external and visible, internal ones cut beneath the surface of existing haircuts create air pockets which add volume. Think of it like Christmas tree branches or holes in wood that add shape and create volume.

Though current trends favor heavy layers, not everyone wants to sacrifice length for a choppy style. Internal layers provide the ideal solution between having layers and shorter length.

Be it long or short layers with short curtain bangs, this soft and subtle style will give your medium length waves a harmonious casual look this summer. For extra texture in a wavy layered bob style, run Pureology Style Protect Mess It Up Texture Paste through your lengths for shine and moisture retention.


Lowlights can give your hair an eye-catching, dramatic edge. These dark-shaded strands can be weaved throughout blonde or brown locks to add contrast. This style looks particularly great on brunettes.

Trendy girls like Zendaya, Kourtney Kardashian, and Hailey Bieber have all made waves by switching out their long locks for short bobs. Though it might feel daunting at first, professional stylists believe it can be achieved easily and is still flattering.

Brunettes seeking a subtle yet sun-kissed effect may opt for balayage or ombre hair coloring techniques which utilize lowlights painted directly by their stylist without foil wrapping. This produces natural-looking results with less damage to strands.

Pops of Color

As summer is the time of lightening up, we’re taking our favorite hues out from undercover and shining them into the sunlight. From beachy blondes, golden and peach hues, to toasty ash shades that complement warm skin tones.

If you’re not ready to commit fully, ask your stylist for subtle pops of color that complement your natural hair tone. For instance, balayage highlights could add the perfect accents of brightness around your face if you’re a brunette with cool undertones.

For something bolder, Zendaya, Kourtney Kardashian, and Hailey Bieber all sport the power bob this summer. This shoulder-length cut features no layers or angling for maximum volume boost and younger-looking skin. To achieve this style, blow out your roots using volumizing products before styling with an aged curtain bang to show off your new look!
