We're officially right in the middle of 2019, which means the new year ain't so new anymore—and, most likely, neither is your hair color. So let's shake up your look with a little color inspo, shall we?
Spoiler, they're all really good—so good, you'll have a hard time settling on just one. So before you drag your feet and realize it's already 2020, check out one of these 10 gorgeous shades. Here's hoping you have your colorist's number on speed dial.
Living Coral Hair
"Living Coral" is Pantone's Color of the Year for 2019, so it makes sense why you're constantly seeing it everywhere. This shade of coral is way more muted than its classic megawatt color, which makes it look (almost) natural. Unless you're a natural blonde, you'll need to bleach your hair to get this copper-coral shade, so make sure to stock up on leave-in conditioner ahead of your appointment to mitigate damage and keep your color from fading.Continue reading below ↓
If you're feeling so 3008 (and not 2000 late), this futuristic style is one you need to try ASAP. The look combines colors of the rainbow to make it look like your hair is—you guessed it—gLiTcHiNg. If you're not sure you want to go full-on glitch, have your colorist try the multi-colored trend on the underside of your hair (so you'll see it when your hair is up).Continue reading below ↓
This light purple shade was starting to gain speed at the end of 2018, and it's officially in full force for 2019 (searches for "lilac hair" are up over 1,000 percent on Pinterest). Even celebs like Cardi B and Lady Gaga have hopped on the lilac-hair bandwagon. If you decide to try this look out, be sure to grab a sulfate-free shampoo to maintain your color.Continue reading below ↓
Chestnut Brown and Gold Hair
The chestnut color gets a slight upgrade this year, thanks to light-brown highlights. Miranda Kerr has already jumped on the trend, adding dimension to her iconic brunette hair with sleek, golden highlights. The best part about this color is that it's so easy to maintain—especially if you're starting with a brown base.Continue reading below ↓
Inky Black Hair
Nope, this isn't the angsty shade you dreamed about during your goth phase in high school. This rich, inky-black is all about ~*shine*~—the glossier, the better. Preserving your shade is crucial with this hue, so make sure you stock up on color-enhancing products (like a hydrating, shade-preserving shampoo) before booking your appointment.Continue reading below ↓
Ash Gray Hair
If you'd like to dip your toes into the dark side without committing to a full-on black look, ash gray is an obvious choice. The darkest sections will be on your roots (read: super ideal for grow out), with a light, ~moody~ gray toward your ends.
Pastel Pink Hair
It isn't often that a wearable hair color trend comes out of fashion week, but the pastel hues that dotted the Marc Jacobs Spring 2019 runway may just inspire you to go bold for summer. Models wore shades of blue and orange, but it was the soft, cotton-candy pink that arguably stole the show. Consider this bright shade the 2019 version of rose gold. Good, right?Continue reading below ↓
Baby Blonde Hair
If you're looking to switch up your platinum hair, white blonde is your calling card. The inspiration behind this shade is the sun-brightened, natural streaks you'd find on surfers or little kids. Just make sure you ask your stylist to lean toward pale-blonde tones rather than pure icy to keep it from washing you out.Continue reading below ↓
Chocolate Brown and Copper Hair
Following 2018's obsession with rich, fiery colors, we're already seeing a major spike in more subtle copper tones this year. Combine chocolate brown with copper highlights for a look that’s equal parts low-key and very pretty.
Strawberry Honey Hair
Think of this color as the perfect middle ground between golden blonde and vibrant copper. With plenty of dimension and shine, this creamy shade is the subtle way to tiptoe into red without fully committing to a fire-engine hue.Continue reading below ↓
