A Closer Look at Holiday Hairstyles

It’s that time of year again – time to start planning for the holidays and everything that comes with them. It’s time to decide whose house you’ll be hitting first on Thanksgiving – Grandma’s or Aunt Tillie’s. It’s time to start thinking about what you’ll be getting your impossible-to-shop-for best friend for Christmas. It’s time to decide on the menu for your annual Christmas party.

Most importantly of all, it’s time to start planning your holiday look. First impressions are forever, as are family photos, so it’s important to make sure your style is on point. This is especially the case when it comes to your hair. However, it’s one thing to know that your tresses are due for an update before the holidays are officially upon us. Deciding which looks will be the right fit for the multitude of settings that come with every holiday season is another.

Here we’ll take a closer look at some of the hottest options out there today when it comes to holiday looks. Whether this season will find you meeting your boyfriend’s parents for the first time, hosting your very first Thanksgiving, or taking in a downtown holiday festival on the arm of your dream date, we’ve got you covered.


When looking to improve their appearance or put together the ideal look for a given occasion, people don’t always remember to consider their hair. They spend months of their time, not to mention hundreds of dollars, looking for the perfect outfit for that party or family get-together. They’re willing to live on lettuce and grapefruit for weeks to make sure their weight is just so.

However, they’ll wear their hair the same old way they always do, missing out on their best opportunity to really knock ‘em dead. But what’s so special about hair, anyway, and why does how you wear yours matter so much? Let us count the ways.

Put Your Best Face Forward

A great hairstyle can flatter your face, bringing out your best features, your unique coloring, the sparkle in your eyes, and your smile. However, an unflattering hairstyle can do the exact opposite. The thing is, we all know a bad hairstyle when we see it on someone else, but it’s a lot harder to evaluate our own choices. Research your unique face shape to determine which styles will help you make the most of it. You can also ask a professional stylist for suggestions.

Let Your Personality Shine Through

Your hairstyle is also the ultimate way to let your unique personality shine through. Are you fun and spontaneous – the life of the party? Try a daring and ultra-chic asymmetrical cut or pixie. Are you the elegant beauty queen in your circle of friends? Some long, sexy layers and perfectly executed highlights could suit you perfectly. Are you the rebel that prefers to stand apart from the crowd? How about a shocking color or an edgy cut that’s just as daring as you are?

Make The Most Of Your Hair Style

If you’re someone that absolutely loathes their natural hair texture, you’re far from alone. It’s common for people with straight hair to wish they had a crown full of curls instead, or for curly-tops to spend hours with a death grip on their flat iron. The right hairstyle can help you learn to love, appreciate, and accentuate the gorgeous natural texture you were born with. Not only will you look to-die-for, but you’ll save yourself a fortune in time, energy, and money as well.

The right hairstyle isn’t just about the right cut and color, either. How you choose to wear your hair and coordinate your choices with your lifestyle, your outfit, your different settings, and so on is equally as important. This is doubly the case when it really counts, as with the holidays.


It’s something that strikes terror into the heart of even the coolest, most collected woman – meeting the parents over dinner. Obviously, you want to make a good impression. You want them to see you as classy, but not stuffy – friendly, but not frivolous. However, it can be difficult to determine which looks make that impression. If you’re meeting them over the holidays, then looking just right becomes even more important.

Yes, it’s the holiday season, but don’t assume this means that you have to be dressed to the nines. Instead, aim for put-together and comfortable. Choose a modest but pretty outfit that definitely makes you look like you cared enough to make a good impression, but stops well short of fussy. A nice blouse paired with a skirt and flats or boots is a good idea. Keep your make-up natural. For your hair, try one of these clean, simple styles:


An up-do is always a good choice for meeting the parents, but today’s version is more comfortable and casual. Smooth your hair back from your face and secure it at the nape of your neck firmly, but not too tightly. Arrange hair into a secure, but loose chignon or bun. Tease individual pieces of hair to create a “tousled” look for your bun. Be sure to leave some face-framing tendrils free as well.


Prefer to wear your hair down? Try parting your hair just off center and using a medium barrel curling iron to add body and waves to one-inch sections of hair. Finger style for the perfect elegant-casual look.


Looking for something somewhere in between? Pull the front half of your hair back and secure at the crown in a high pony, while leaving the rest down. Add a festive hair band or barrette if you like.


Whether you’ve been happily married for years or just started seeing someone new, it goes without saying that date nights are a cause for excitement. And a holiday date night? Well, it only makes sense to seize the opportunity to look extra festive. You want your special someone to look your way and feel instantly lucky to be out on the town with you.

Whether you’re hitting the stadium to catch a sporting event or stepping out for a meal at that brand new five-star restaurant that just opened up across town, holiday date nights are occasions where you want to look extra gorgeous. These options are sure to be perfect for whatever the night may bring your way.


A sleek, smooth bun that sits high up on the head is the quintessential elegant look. Plus, it’s perfect for any occasion, goes with any outfit, and looks good on everyone. Keep your bun looking shiny and perfect all night long by stocking your purse with a travel-sized can of hairspray and a few bobby pins to wrangle strays.


The asymmetrical look isn’t just for short cuts and edgy bobs, anymore. It’s also all the rage for date night hairstyles. Part your hair on one side and twist your hair into an elegant chignon on the opposite side. Secure at the nape of the neck. Add a pretty hair accessory for an extra festive touch.


This sexy, carefree look is the perfect way to show off your beautiful tresses and definitely look like you’re ready to hit the town, without also looking like you spent all day in front of the mirror fussing over your hair. Dry your hair about 80% of the way, braid it, and spritz with a bit of hairspray. Dry it the rest of the way, and unbraid. Instant “cool girl” waves that will have you turning heads all night.


It’s something that strikes terror into the heart of even the coolest, most collected woman – meeting the parents over dinner. Obviously, you want to make a good impression. You want them to see you as classy, but not stuffy – friendly, but not frivolous. However, it can be difficult to determine which looks make that impression. If you’re meeting them over the holidays, then looking just right becomes even more important.

You need a look that’s sleek and put together, but fun at the same time. Something that will impress Mom and Grandma, but still make you look cool in front of your sisters and cousins. Try the following on for size.


This gorgeous hairstyle is proof positive that ponytails aren’t just for lazy Netflix Sundays with the girls. Brush your hair over to one side and secure with a covered rubber band. Wind one strand of hair around the band to hide it. Style the ponytail into a cascade of gentle waves with a large barrel curling iron.


Apply volumizing mousse to clean hair and blow it dry. Use electric rollers to create big, beautiful curls and waves. Allow rollers to cool completely before removing, and then brush hair gently while holding your head upside down. Smooth into place and lock in the style with a flexible hold hairspray.


A pretty braid is just perfect for Thanksgiving with the fam. Pull the braid over one shoulder for a contemporary look, or go for a sophisticated French braid if you have the skills. If you’d like to try something different, go for a milkmaid style braid. Pretty, elegant, and effortlessly chic!


If you’re wondering whether or not your hair needs a bit of extra TLC before the holidays officially get here, you’re not alone. This is the time of year that finds many style-conscious women heading to the salon to help transition their beachy summer hair to something richer that looks ready to take on fall. Common requests that you may want to consider include the following:


Not everyone keeps the same exact hair color all year round. Crisp, bright highlights that look awesome throughout the spring and summer can look out of place once the temperature drops. Fiery reds that were fantastic on the beach may be better off retired in favor of a richer, more subtle russet now that the leaves are starting to turn.

Consider making an appointment with a professional colorist to help you subtly update your color or decide on a new look that’s not too drastic. Professional salons can treat you to benefits like custom blended color and an extensive palette of shades to put even the largest drugstore selection to shame. Plus, with the holidays on the way, you can’t afford to look anything less than flawless. The last thing you want to deal with is a major color snafu right before the family is about to arrive for Thanksgiving dinner!


Hair looking a little ragged after a long summer of swimming and lazy afternoons spent soaking up the sun? Got a few split ends or limp layers that need to be tended to before holiday photo season begins? You’ve got an excellent reason to hit the salon.

High end professional salons can treat you to clean lines, perfect layers, and superior cuts that will have everyone asking who your stylist is. Holidays are better when your mom spends them bragging about your sense of style, instead of criticizing it.


Summer is a time when lots of us play with funky new colors and crazy experimental highlights. However, the last thing you want going into the holiday season is a head full of chlorine-corrupted hair or a wonky drug store color that no longer seems like the good idea it seemed like, last month.

Color correction should always be performed by a seasoned professional for best results. A professional colorist can correct even the most hopeless hair mishaps, so never fear.

Once your cut and color are once again on point, you can rest assured that your fabulous holiday hairstyles will look their absolute best. Explore the possibilities today! The holidays await.

2015 Fall and Winter Hair Trend Guide



Whether we like it or not, summer is winding down and a new season is upon us. It’s time to trade out your swimsuits for sweaters and get ready for cooler temperatures. But the fall and winter seasons bring more than just lower degrees. It can be a time for change.
This can be a great time for you to change up your hairstyle or color. If you’ve been thinking about a new do, let this be the time to “do” it. Whether you want a complete overhaul for your hair, or just a soft and subtle change, now is the time to take the leap. A new season can mean a new you.

The Lob

The Lob

The lob has become one of the biggest hair trends of the year and if you thought it was going to go away after summer, you thought wrong. The lob is a longer version of a bob. This is a great hairstyle for those who want to change up their hair but don’t want to go quite as drastic as a bob. It also happens to be very trendy at the moment.
There are many different variations of the lob that you can try. You can add bangs to the lob if you would like or, if you have naturally curly hair, you can add waves to it. The great thing about sporting a lob is that it is still long enough to be worn in a ponytail or bun, but short enough that it shouldn’t take you hours blow-drying and straightening. The lob does require some maintenance, though. If you don’t keep it trimmed, it can grow out quickly to a mid-torso length.
The lob is normally considered to be perfect when it lies at the collar bone and, to keep it that length, you will probably need to see your hairdresser about every 6 weeks. If you need inspiration for a lob, look to celebrities like Karlie Kloss, Taylor Swift, or Kristen Bell.

Cropped Cuts

Cropped Cuts

If you are daring enough, one trend for fall is the short pixie cut. This is definitely a dramatic hair move, but if you want to change up your hair and have been thinking about cutting off your tresses, this is going to be a huge hit this fall and winter.
To achieve this look, your hair should be no longer than your ears. Besides that, it is yours to play around with. If you want it to be edgier, keep a little extra length in the front that you can tousle. This hairstyle is great for those who want something extremely easy to wear. But it should be kept in mind that this hairstyle might not be for everyone. Those with extremely curly hair might not like this look, and you should remember that since it is too short for a ponytail or bun, you are going to have to style it every day. Also, it is going to take some maintenance to keep it at the perfect length. You probably will need to see your hairstylist at least every 4-6 weeks. Not sure yet? Look at stars like Shailene Woodley or Lily Collins for some pixie inspiration.

Voluminous Waves

Voluminous Waves

Perhaps on the other side of the spectrum from the pixie are the always-trendy voluminous waves. This is one hairstyle that is normally always in for women, and it is easy to see why. The long, luscious waves add a huge layer of drama to the face, and they add sex appeal.
This hairstyle is great for almost any type of hair or face shape. It is important to remember, though, that with more hair normally comes more time spent styling it. But, on the other hand, you won’t need to be making as many hair appointments with this style. Celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Sophia Vergara, and Nina Dobrev all love the look and can help give you inspiration.

Bold Center Part

Bold Center Part

Maybe you have commitment issues, and you just can’t imagine changing your hair that much. If you don’t want to cut all your hair off, but still want to try something new, consider the middle part. For a while the middle part was considered a hair mistake, but in the last few months, the middle part has made a comeback.
The middle part can be a great way to spice up your hair and change it up without doing anything permanent. This is a great trend to try out if you don’t like a lot of change because, if you decide you don’t like it, you can always go back to your original part. If you need some help with this, look to stars like Lauren Conrad, Jennifer Aniston, and Kim Kardashian, who are all big fans of the middle part.



A lot of style forecasters expect bangs to be huge this fall and winter. Whether they are full, straight-across bangs, or just side-swept bangs, they are going to be big. Bangs can be a great addition to any hairstyle. They are perfect with lobs or voluminous waves, and with any other type of hair. That is what makes them so attractive to so many people: They are versatile.

There are a lot of new shades out there for fall, regardless whether you have blonde hair, brown hair, or even red hair. With color, the main thing to remember in these cooler months is that you want a nice deep rich color for your hair. If you are looking to change up your hair color for the fall or winter, don’t worry. There is a perfect shade for you, regardless of what color your hair is. And now is the perfect time to do it.

Here are the top shades for fall and winter for every hair color:

For Brunettes


    1. Chocolate

There are a lot of different shades of chocolate for the fall. If you already have brown hair, going to a chocolate brown color can be a great and easy way to add drama and mystery for the changing season. Look at celebrities like Mila Kunis, Sandra Bullock, and Jennifer Garner for some of Hollywood’s best chocolate brunettes.


    1. Caramel

Adding caramel highlights to your hair can be a great choice for caramel hairthose with brunette locks. The golden highlights will flatter and illuminate your complexion; just make sure to add them around your face, and make them lighter as they go down. It can add depth to your hair and add a richer feel to your look. It is also good because it doesn’t require a lot of upkeep and can go with any skin tone. Check out Jennifer Lopez or Jessica Biel for examples of the caramel brown color.


    1. Chestnut

Chestnut is going to be a medium shade of chestnut hairbrown that can work for almost anyone. It works great if you already have brown locks, or if you want them. It can be a great option for blondes who want to go darker, or for ashy brunettes. This is a nice, rich brown color that is both playful and elegant. Celebrities like Kate Beckinsale, Sarah Hyland, and Jessica Alba are all known for their beautiful chestnut hair.

For Red Hairs


    1. Pumpkin Spice

Not only is pumpkin spice one of fall’s favorite flavors; pumpkin spice hairit is also a great choice in hair color. This look is perfect for people with light-colored skin, because it can bring out the golden tone in your complexion. To achieve the perfect pumpkin spice hair color, the base should be a soft coppery color with light golden blonde highlights. Make sure you don’t add too many blonde highlights, because you can quickly go from red to blonde. If you want inspiration for pumpkin spice, check out actresses Rachel McAdams and Jessica Chastain.


    1. Strawberry Blonde

Strawberry blonde can be a great transition between blonde and red. strawberry blonde hairIf you are thinking about going red, but don’t know if you want to go all the way, strawberry is a great medium that is really in style for fall and winter. While you might think of strawberry blonde as more of a summer color, when done correctly strawberry blonde should be a warm reddish-blonde hue that is strong and elegant. Check out Isla Fisher or Nicole Kidman for variations of strawberry blonde hair colors for fall.

For Blondes


    1. Platinum

Most of the time in the fall and winter months platinum hairwe have the desire to darken our hair colors. As the weather cools, we want a warmer color for our hair. But there is an exception to this rule: platinum. If you have blonde hair and are looking for a dramatic change, consider going platinum.
Platinum hair generally works best with those who have a lighter hair color, and more of a fair skin tone, but that doesn’t mean everyone else has to be left out. Check out celebrities like Rita Ora or Ellie Goulding. Even Kim Kardashian dyed her famous dark locks platinum recently.


    1. Honey

If you want to switch up your blonde locks for fall, add in a bit of a warm honey tone. honey hair This hair color complements nearly every skin tone and can add depth to your hair for the cooler months. Going honey blonde is a great way to add in multiple dimensions to your hair and warm it up a bit.
Honey blonde can also be a very warm and glamorous color that works well with light and medium complexions. It is also a lot easier to maintain than a very light blonde. For honey blonde inspiration, check out celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Sienna Miller, and Natalie Portman.


    1. Blonde

Blake Lively might have been the first celebrity to coin blonde hairthe term “bronde” when she dyed her hair a perfect combination of blonde and brown earlier this summer for her latest movie role. But she hasn’t been the first celebrity to give up her blonde locks. Celebs like Cara Delevingne and Chrissy Teigen have all jumped on the bronde craze. This natural-looking trend is great for fall because it adds a warm, multi-dimensional layer to blonde hair. It is also great because of low maintenance. Bright blonde requires upkeep around every 6 weeks, while bronde can wait around 6 months.


    1. Dirty Blonde

If you aren’t ready to give up your blonde locks to the bronde or honey trends, dirty blonde hairbut still want a richer color for fall and winter, consider going for a dirty blonde color. Dirty blonde allows you to keep your blonde youthful hair, but adds a darker layer for more dimensions.

Make sure you have a good balance of lighter and darker blonde highlights to create the perfect shade of dirty blonde. If you are looking for inspiration, take a look at Gigi Hadid, Georgia May Jagger, or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.


Colorful Options

Purple has been a really big trend this year, and it isn’t going to go anywhere as we enter the fall and winter. The good news is that, with the different shades of purple, there is a color that can look good with any hair color. If your hair is naturally blonde, consider going with more of a pastel lavender color. If you have red or brown hair, then maybe a violet or eggplant shade of purple. For lavender inspiration look toward Kelly Osbourne. For darker shades, check out Katy Perry’s dark looks.

Pink is another color that has been big this summer, and which is going to carry over into fall and winter. Pink works best with those with a lighter natural hair color and lighter skin. The most popular shade of pink has been a light baby pink, but don’t be afraid to try something loud, like hot pink. Celebrities like Rachel McAdams and Gwen Stefani have been known to rock shades of pink hair.

Yet another different color that you should consider experimenting with this season, blue has been a big hit so far. Blue encompasses so many different shades, that there is a perfect shade for everyone. If you have lighter hair, look at a light pastel blue or a light teal. If you have darker hair or a darker skin tone, consider a darker shade of blue, like royal, or a dark teal color. Check out Demi Lovato or Kylie Jenner for blue hair inspiration.

Back to Nature this Fall at Barron’s London Salon

Did you try a new hair color trend this summer? Swim in a pool or the ocean? How about garden, go to a Braves game or have a mimosa on an outdoor patio? If you answered yes to these wonderful summer activities, or anything else that exposed your hair to the brutal sun, humidity and elements, it’s time to get back to nature with your hair care!
The hot hair ingredient everyone is talking about now is roucou oil. Never heard of it? Well here’s your chance to learn about this fantastic ingredient that does wonders for getting your hair back into shape for fall.

Lipstick Tree Pods Lipstick Tree
Pronounced ru ˈku, it’s the powerhouse behind the Davines’ Oi products that make your hair insanely vibrant and glossy. Found in the Amazon rainforest, it is derived from the fruit of the achiote, an evergreen shrub sometimes called the lipstick tree because of its pink flowers and spiny red fruit. Roucou oil is harvested from the seeds of the heart-shaped fruit.

Roucou oil stimulates the production of melanin, which is responsible for your hair’s color. Melanin can keep gray hair and frizz at bay. Permanent fix? No, but definitely great for preventative measures!
Roucou oil also contains ellagic acid and 100 times more beta carotene than carrots! This combination helps to neutralizes free radicals and have antioxidant properties that protect against UV radiation. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can directly damage cellular structural membranes, lipids, proteins, and DNA. While our bodies have a natural defense against free radicals, as we age, free radical production increases while our defenses decrease. This can result in graying and/or thinning hair. So…fighting free radicals is of utmost importance to your haircare!

Oi Collection
Roucou oil is the key ingredient in Davines’ OI All in One Milk, a multi-tasking leave-in-conditioner that can be used to comb through stubborn tangles, combat frizz, add body, and facilitate styling while protecting against heat and other stressors. It gives your hair a glossy sheen and smells gorgeous, thanks to tea and amber infusions. Roucou oil is also a major player in Davines’ OI Oil, a lightweight tonic that conditions without weighing strands down. In OI Shampoo, the ingredient teams up with rose oil for clean, super-shiny hair, while apricot butter builds on the oil’s moisturizing powers in the OI conditioner.
By popular demand, the signature scent and ingredients have been captured in a new Oi Lotion and Body Balm, yours with a purchase of three hair care products from this amazing line from Davines!

Back To Basics Hair At Barron’s London Salon

Every August we see the beginning of the end of summer. Kids go back to school and routine sets in. That’s why we celebrate August with a Back to Basics approach to hair! Here you will find a refresher course on the basics of hair, and a few specials to help!
Shampooing HairHow to Shampoo & Condition Your Hair: Has anyone ever told you the proper way to shampoo and condition your hair? The rule of thumb is that you shampoo your scalp and condition your ends. Use only enough shampoo to cover your scalp all over. No extra is needed for the ends! As you rinse your scalp, the shampoo glides through the rest of your hair and cleanses it. Conditioner is the opposite. Apply conditioner from your mid shaft to the ends. Any remaining on your hands can be run through the top. Do not apply extra conditioner to your scalp. This can make hair feel greasy, weighed down or oily. The natural oils from your scalp will take care of the rest.
How to Pick a Brush: Yes, there are a gazillion kinds of brushes in your stylist’s arsenal. Have you ever thought to ask why? Each brush serves a purpose for each clients’ hair. Here is a short breakdown: Round brushes give “round” volume, Which Hair Brush Is Best For Curly Hair?usually the shorter the hair, the smaller the brush needed. However, smaller brush heads also give more curl and more tension, so check in to see which size your stylist recommends based on how you style your hair. Vent brushes can also add volume, but allow air to pass through when blow drying, so this brush is best suited for a rough air dry effect with a little definition. Same rule applies, the longer the hair, the larger the brush needed. Paddle brushes are great for straight styles and are usually better for hair past the shoulders. Finally, the 7 or 9 row Denman brush. This is great for smooth straight styles as well as styling bangs without getting that 80’s pouf.

How toHairspraying Hair Pick a Hairspray: While some of you never touch the stuff, for many, hairspray is as basic a hair need as shampoo. We love hairspray and feel a final spritz before you go anywhere is a plus for any hairstyle. How do you choose which one is right for you? The question to ask yourself is how much movement do you like to have in your hair throughout the day? If you want to run your hands through it constantly and feel nothing, then a soft hold spray will control fly away and still feel like air. Most people feel like they want some hold, but still touchable, that is the medium hairspray. If your hair is unruly, stubborn and tends to frizz, then a strong hold is best. Strong hold is also best for special occasion styles when you want a specific style to stay put all night. Still unsure? Let the hair experts at Barron’s London Salon help you decide!

20 Summer highlight trends to try now

you are in search of a bold new look this summer, or even a more sophisticated and subtle look, summer 2015 ushers in a new round of popular trends in highlighting. While not entirely jumping into a completely new hair color, highlighting offers an alternative, giving you the option to try out a new trend and brighten your appearance, without completely transforming your hair color and your overall look.

Some of the prettiest hair colors for 2015 are rich in color and rich in impact. There is no “right” answer when it comes to highlight trends for the summer, because there is no hair color that is simply right for everyone. It is up to you and your stylist to come up with the look that works the best for you, whether that means a subtle change or a more drastic one, when it comes to your hair color. From platinum blond to honey brown, from bright purple to pastel pink, the options are endless, and so are the techniques available to give you the unique look you are in search of this summer season.

At Barron’s London Salon in Atlanta, we understand the value of making you look your best, refashioning your hair so that you get the results you are after. We do not create a “whole new you” but rather capitalize on your own individual strengths when it comes to your appearance, helping present the world with the very best “you.” We offer a number of highlight techniques, aimed at giving you the results you want when it comes to a new and trendy summer hair color.

If you are ready to make the leap into one of the summer’s latest trends, we have 20 of the hottest trends for you to try right now. While one-tone hair color is limited when it comes to definition and volume, multi-tone hair color offers a hot look that’s not only trendy but also adaptable to the season. Whether you want to go platinum, or add in some distinctive and dynamic locks, we are sure one of these striking looks is right for you this summer season.

Bold Highlights

The first summer highlight trend has to do with color highlights. To make the strongest and most dramatic change, you have to ensure there is a really distinctive difference between your hair’s base tone and the highlight shade. For an eye-popping twist, try tints like bright blue, orange, purple, pink, or red. Although hardly subtle, you are sure to turn a few heads each and every time you enter a room. So, if you’re ready for a big change, break out of the rut and try a new bold color when it comes to adding highlights this summer season.

Pastel Highlights

Along with the rich tones of red and purple, a lot of celebrities have been seen sporting pastel highlights, too. From streaks to dip-dye looks, this is really an eye-catching way to change your hair color, while still maintaining some of your original base color. Soft pinks and purples, even light blues, are a place to start, but your stylist can help you come up with just the right shade for you.



If you want just a peek or two of color, try some peek-a-boo highlights. This is a great way to add in highlights if you already have a dark hair base color. Try some peek-a-boo highlights of blonde, or even some purple, to mix things up. You can also go with some semi-permanent hair color, which is sometimes easier on your locks than permanent hair color is, but which doesn’t last as long. This is a good way to try out a highlight shade if you’re not too sure about the results.

More Natural Peek-a-Boo Highlights

If you want to look more natural, and you have a beige blonde base, try buttery blonde highlights. With long layers, this creates a fresh new look that will last you all summer long.

If you already have a dark base color, like espresso, you can add in barely-mocha highlights to achieve some contrast, without going to a bold new extreme.

Blonde/Brunette Highlights

If you want to stick with a more subtle look, go for blonde or brunette highlights for the summer. This is a mild way of starting out with highlights, but not going too drastic. You will want to start by adding in just a few highlights that won’t be too noticeable.

To do so, you will want your base tone to be close to the highlight shade. This helps add development and volume to your hair’s appearance.

Summer Brown Blonde

For a new and updated look, go for summer brown blonde. You can get stronger highlights in the front, and then toward the back an ombre-balayage look.

If you have brunette hair, go for nectar blonde or
brilliant blonde highlights. If you have blonde hair, you can include light tan highlights in with your original color.

Brunette with Caramel Highlights

If you’re naturally a brunette, one of the most beautiful looks right now is achieved by using caramel highlights. This type of look makes it appear as if you’ve been in the natural sun all summer long and have just let your hair grow out. It’s a great choice for the summer, giving you an effortless look with long beautiful tresses.

Caramel highlights offer the perfect solution for both a versatile and fashionable new look. It’s also a growing trend among celebrities, and looks great on women with a darker and richer base hair color.

Brunette Highlights with Bangs

Mix up the brunette highlights a little by adding in some summer bangs. There is nothing cuter right now than some long bangs, combined with perfect highlights and big summer curls to round out the look. Again, this is a great summer look that will take you into fall and beyond.

Lighten Up

If you love dark hair,

but are ready for a summer change,

start going lighter than your normal

shade right now. This includes some blonde

highlights to lighten up your look when the days

are long and the summer sun is plentiful. The change

isn’t too drastic, but it does lighten up your overall color.

Brunette A-Line

Bob/Balayage Highlights

Loose curls have never looked prettier, pairing a brunette’s long A-line bob with balayage highlights. This is another perfect solution for summer hair, giving your hairdo an effortless look, along with a more dramatic contrast from the top of your hair to the tips of your hair.

With balayage highlights, the highlight color is swept on with a paddle. This gives your stylist more creativity in where the highlights go, unlike with foils, which end up looking much more precise when you’re finished. It’s a great solution if you are trying to cover just a few strands of gray, too.

Light Blonde Hair/

Platinum Highlights

If your hair is light blonde, you can also get some great results by adding platinum highlights. Because your base color is already blonde, you can get away with adding in platinum highlights, because the contrast will not be quite so drastic as it would be if you had a darker base color to begin with.

Low-Maintenance Highlights

If you’re hoping for a real low-maintenance type of highlight, consider just brightening up the ends of your hair. If you add in some honey blonde to the tips of your hair, you get a summer-look without the maintenance requirements of full highlights. This is a great solution for fabulous summer hair that looks great on the beach or in the office.

Ombre Spectrum

If you want to stand out, though, consider asking your stylist to give you a bright new look with an ombre spectrum. In this case, the tips of your hair become sunny blonde, while your roots are left as the darkest shade of your hair color. This hair coloring look provides a lot of contrast and gives you highlights that just can’t be missed.

Soft Ombre

For a softer ombre look, try bumping up your
natural hair color base a little, and then
matching it with highlights, which complement the color. This highlight provides a softer ombre effect by keeping your highlights just two to three shades lighter than your original base color. With this type of coloring, the highlighting starts about at your hair’s mid-length rather than at the root of your hair.



One big trend for 2015 is the under layering ombre.
This is a great look for those who have light
medium brown roots topped off with a caramel shade on the top layer, which ends just past the shoulders. It’s an updated version of a highly sought after hair color for the past couple of years.


& Lowlights

To keep your highlights from appearing
too saturated, ask your stylist to
include some lowlights, too. For the
least amount of upkeep and the
most natural looking contrast,
have your colorist blend up a
dark shade, which is close to
your natural base color, along
with a brighter blonde for a more
sun-kissed look when you’re

Layered Cut/

Subtle Highlights

To give your hair more movement, try mixing long layered locks with some subtle highlights. If you have dark hair, this is a great way to give your hair color a lift. You will want to use really thin streaks throughout your hair, and then give the tips of your hair some lighter coloring to add that extra lift.

Face-Framing Highlights

For a unique highlight, without changing much of your base shade at all, consider adding in just a few wisps of highlighted hair color right around your face. Using face-framing highlights helps draw attention to your facial features, as well as provides a contrast to your original base color. This is a great look if you have red hair, too.


A natural way to keep your base hair color, but invoke a sun-kissed look, is using babylights. These natural-looking highlights make your hair look like it probably did when you were a child. When you stylists adds accent
highlights that appear “sun-kissed,” these delicate highlights make your hair look more dynamic, as well as healthier. This is also a great way to experience highlights without a lot of upkeep. A low-maintenance hair color is, of course, a great way to begin the summer.

Vertical Highlights

On the opposite end of the spectrum is the vertical highlight. In this case, the contrast is extremely vivid, so prepare to turn a few heads. In most cases the highlight color comes in blonde, brown, or red, but you can also incorporate other bolder colors for an even more drastic change.
