Color Trend: Peach Hair

The latest trend in haircolor is just peachy!

Move over rose gold, there's a new trendy hair color in town! "This spring we're going to see the rose gold transition into an iridescent peach," shares expert hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Jo Blackwell. Want to learn more about this peachy new hue? Keep reading!

The time has come to embrace the brighter hues of spring haircolor with peach. The color first hit the scene last year when pastel shades reigned supreme, but was often overshadowed by its pink counterparts. This season, however, peach is demanding the spotlight. You can opt for a dusty see-through peach or ask your hairdresser for a bolder, in-your-face bright peach more reminiscent of the fruit at its ripest!

"While rose gold features both warm and cool tones at the same time, peaches are more of a see-through gold copper," Blackwell says. This means, that peaches-whether dusty or bold-feature warm tones. Warm tones complement those with warm tones present in their skin-meaning you likely have a greenish tint to your veins and gold jewelry is your jam.

Don't have warm undertones in your skin, no problem? A L'Oréal Professionnel hairdresser can work with you to determine how you can best rock this trending shade! A great option is to try a peach ombré instead of an all-over peach hue. This way you can embrace the trend on your ends, but your face-framing layers will better complement your skin tone.

One thing to keep in mind before going peach is that your hairdresser will have to lighten your base color in order to make the end result more visible and vibrant. Anytime you're lightening your hair more than a few levels-read: you're going from a brunette to a blonde-you'll want to talk to your hairdresser about Smartbond. Smartbond is a unique bond strengthening system that helps to protect and strengthen the hair during technical services like lightening. Since the process of going lighter requires products that open the hair's cuticle and break down its bonds in order to natural pigment to be removed, it can damage the hair. In order to maintain the integrity and health of your hair during these services, Smartbond is blended with the color before it's applied. You can feel even more confident about trying the latest trends like peach with Smartbond!

Remember if you're going to color your hair peach-and why wouldn't you?!-you'll want to leave your locks in the hands of a professional. Between lightening and getting a hue that best suits you, there's a lot that could go wrong if you reach for a boxed hair color at the local drugstore. Keep in mind, like many trendy haircolors-from pink to pastel-peach fades quickly, so you'll want to make sure you pencil in a visit to the salon every 4-6 weeks for a touch up!
