The new year feels like the perfect time to reinvent yourself and try something new. One way to shake things up in 2019 is with a beautiful new hair color. Flirt Urban Salon is breaking down eight San Diego hair color trends you’ll love in 2019, from Icy Blonde to Inky Black and everything in between.
Reverse balayage is the next big trend in hair coloring. Unlike the traditional balayage technique, which typically involves painting on lighter highlights cascading down from darker roots, “reverse balayage” involves painting on darker hues – think blonde roots leading to light brown tips. Reverse balayage typically works best if you have naturally light hair.
Hair in Shades of Blue
The new year is the perfect time to have fun with your look and try something unexpected. We’re loving this blue mermaid hair by Joy at Flirt Urban Salon.
Icy Platinum Hair
The “Ice Queen” look will be back in full force in 2019 with these gorgeous icy blonde hair colors. It may take a couple of trips to the salon to get this sparkling white-blonde hue, but it’s totally worth it. There’s just something special about platinum blonde hair that’s both glamorous and laidback.
Welcome to the dark side. Inky Black hair color was the “it” hair color in winter 2018 and will continue to be a big hit in 2019. This dark black hair color looks great on women with dark skin tones as well as gals with pale, fair skin. However, it’s good to note that inky black hair typically looks best on women who have naturally dark hair. If you’re not ready to commit to this look, ask your hair colorist for an inky black gloss so you can take the hair color for a test drive.
Baby Blonde hair color is inspired by the sun-brightened, natural highlights you’d find on small children or surfers. Baby blonde is similar to warm platinum, but isn’t as light. To achieve this look, your hair colorist will typically blend warm shades of gold and platinum into the hair using balayage highlights or babylights.
Caramel Hair Color
Caramel-colored balayage looks as delectable as it sounds. This trending hair color can add subtle dimension and warmth to your hair. If you’ve got dark brown or black hair, caramel balayage can create softness and dimension around your face. If you’ve got blonde hair, you can get a similar effect by having your hair colorist add a shadowed root with warm brown lowlights.
Hot Pink Hair Melt
While we love the pastel pink hair trend, there’s something extra fun and pretty about bright, vivid hair colors. If you’re really looking to be bold in 2019, why not try hot pink hair? One way to ease into this color is with color melting, so the color cascades down over your base hair color with no distinct lines (see photo above).
Golden copper hair highlights look stunning on brunettes. These highlights give hair extra shine and dimension and are a great compromise for those who want to go red, but aren’t ready to take the full plunge.
