The spectrum of gray hair color can range from icy blonde rinsed with a silver toner, to brown hair with smokey gray charcoal tones, to all-over grey.

Mermaid Hair Color Trend


Mermaids are known for their luscious hair, so it’s no wonder that mermaid hair is a hot hair color trend here in San Diego. Mermaid hair is achieved with beautifully blended multiple pastel and/or bright and bold colors. This hair color trend is all about playfulness– colorful strands of hair become like fun accessories for any outfit or hairstyle. Although mermaids are known for long hair, the look can actually be done on all lengths of hair. When executed correctly by an experienced hair colorist, mermaid hair is absolutely stunning. This hair color technique isn’t easy to achieve, so don’t try to DIY this look.

Unicorn Hair Color Trend


The unicorn hair color trend is often confused with mermaid hair. Like mermaid hair, this look is achieved by blending a myriad of beautiful hair colors– typically rainbow colors often seen on cartoon unicorns’ manes. The unicorn hair colors can be bright and bold or neon (think of those Lisa Frank folders from elementary school), or pastel for a softer look.

Pastel Hair Color Trend


Often used in unicorn and mermaid hair, pastel hair is soft, cotton-candy-like color. These pretty pops of color give off a fun, feminine vibe, and can be done in a variety soft shades. Pastel hair color is great for women with naturally blonde hair, or can be achieved by first lightening the hair.

Jewel-Toned Hair Color Trend


If your hair is too dark for pastels and you don’t want to bleach your hair, sultry jewel-tones let brunettes in on the colorful fun. Think of jewel toned hair colors as deeper pigmented hues like those seen on natural stones like rubies, sapphire, emerald, and amethyst. Jewel-toned hair isn’t just for brunettes, it can also look beautiful on blonde, red, or gray hair.

Hair Chalk


Have commitment issues? Hair chalk is a fun and easy way to add temporary color to your locks. There are various hair chalks on the market in spray or sponge-on form. These hair chalks are applied to dry hair and instantly add a touch of fun color. After applying hair chalk, you can style your hair as desired and lock in the color with hair spray. The color easily washes out during your next shampoo.
