Pale Pastels

In our post about hair trends for spring, we talked about the increasing trend of pale hair colors, like blues and pinks. The same fad is looking true for the summer, including tints of faded pastels that are more chalky white.

If you go for a faded pastel, make sure to ask your hairstylist for the best shampoo and conditioner to help maintain your faded color.

Celebrity trends: Lady Gaga and Khloe Kardashian have been seen with faded pastel looks.

Iridescent Unicorn

Want to take the faded pastel look one step further? The iridescent unicorn look will add in different hues so you don’t have to pick just one. If you’re looking for a magical look for summer, give this look a try.

Grey and purple make a great combination — and is a great twist on the silver hair trend. There is no limit to the pastels you can put in your own rainbow mane!

Celebrity trends:  Kesha couldn’t pick just one color. She has worn her own version of the iridescent unicorn with all the colors of the rainbow.


Going along with the pale trend, coral will be a hot color this summer. Just this year, Pantone revealed Living Coral as the official color of 2019. Coral creates a softer look than pinker shades that have trended in previous years. Since it’s this year’s official color, you can expect to see a lot more of it this summer!

Celebrity trends:  Marc Jacobs model Mariana Zaragoza and actress Julia Roberts have both been seen with coral hair.


If you’re not ready to say goodbye to those pinks, dusty rosé is the new pink. This color helps warmer skin tones glow. Undertones of gold also create a sophisticated rosé gold color that’s perfect for the summer.

Celebrity trends: A long list of celebrities have tried this rosé gold look, including Nicki Minaj, Kylie Jenner, Lady Gaga, and Blake Lively.

Shadow Roots

Don’t be afraid to let your roots show! This hair trend lets your darker, natural hair color show through at your roots. When you opt for shadow roots, you don’t have to worry about your roots ruining your lighter-colored hair.

Celebrity trends: Kim Kardashian and Bella Thorne have both been seen with shadow roots.

Strawberry Blonde

Red hair with warmer undertones will also be an in-demand hair style this summer. Add golden or honey undertones to help your hair pop. Strawberry blonde will give you light hair that looked like it’s been perfectly bleached by the sun.

If you have blonde hair, have your hairstylist add some strawberry highlights. If you’re a light-red head, add golden highlights to achieve the same look.

Celebrity trends: Amy Adams has been opting for strawberry blonde instead of her normal red hair.

Shades Of Nude

Shades of darker blonde and beige give you the perfect summer beach hair. If you don’t want to put pastels or colors in your hair, these shades are easy to maintain.

Celebrity trends: Model Gigi Hadid’s neutral hair is a great example of what this nude color looks like!


If you’re looking for a bold color that makes a statement, give peppermint a try. This vibrant hair style requires maintenance to keep its bright color, so make sure you ask your hairstylist about upkeep!

Celebrity trends: Actress Tati Gabrielle showed off her peppermint hair at the 2019 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon.
