Summer and Color, Your Hair Should Love Both

It’s summer! The perfect time to change your hair color. Whether you are on the lookout for something new or just want to mix things up, a dramatic hair makeover may be just what you need for a refreshed look.

What to Consider Before Choosing a Summer Hair Color?

The best summer hair color is one that makes you feel confident and vibrant. It should make you feel good about yourself. Some factors that you might want to consider when picking out your summer hair color are; your mood, your feelings, and how long your hair will be down.

With all of this in mind, it is also essential that you pick out colors that match your skin tone, eye color, and personality in that the color looks natural.

And, with all the hair coloring and bleaching involved, don’t forget to give your hair some extra care this summer to keep it healthy! The perfect set of haircare to repair and nurture your hair is the award-winning Iles Formula Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s silicon-free, paraben and sulfate-free! With all the bleaching and toning, it is crucial to ensure your haircare does not contain these harmful ingredients as your hair definitely won’t react well if they come into contact.

Which Hues to Wear This Summer?

The summer of 2021 is going to be a colorful one. The brightest colors from the previous years are here to stay, and we should also expect more pastel shades this summer. Here are the most popular ones you will see over the next few months:

Light Pastels

One of the hottest hair colors this summer is light pastels. They are a trend that is expected to stay popular for a long time. A while back, light pastels were only seen in highlights as they were considered too light to be used on their own. But recently, it is becoming a staple hair color for those who want to take their summer look up a notch.

Pastel pink, dusty lavender, pure white, and baby blue are getting popular, even with celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Olivia Culpo, rocking these hues on red carpets worldwide!

If you love keeping up with celeb hair trends and the products they use, make sure to check out the award-winning Iles Formula Finishing Serum. It’s a favorite amongst popular hairdressers who’ve used it on film shoots and professional photoshoots. Our founder, Wendy Iles never styles a head of hair without it! It feeds hair with nothing but goodness without ever weighing it down! So, you know that when you’re rocking these hair colors, the luster will definitely come through!
