Evolving from 2016’s love affair with orange tones, blorange is a soft blend of honey blonde hues with strawberry tones and ginger. It creates a look that’s softly enchanting, with a splash of romance, making it a perfect colour to go for if your style incorporates a lot of pretty fabrics, like lace and silk, along with a great pair of riding boots. If you have a peachy complexion, blorange may be your perfect colour this fall.
2016 saw a lot of fun with bold greys and silvers. This colour is great for brunettes with pink undertones and a cooler complexion. It’s ideal if you want to keep your colour natural-looking this season, yet still do something edgy with your look. Ash Brown gives off a Victorian-chic vibe, with notes of blue and grey in the base.
Subtle Two – Tone
If you have long locks, you can rock the two-tone reverse ombre two-tone reverse ombre look. Choose a darker colour for the roots and an ever-so-slightly lighter shade for the ends. This colour trend is supposed to look like the two shades fade into one another, creating a natural appearance, while still adding dynamic colour.

This colour, by stylist Kendall Noel, is fantastic for naturally raven locks. Soft purples are toned down to a foggy lavender finish. It’s mesmerising and mysterious and a great colour if you want to go outside of traditional colouring but still be on-trend.
The biggest colour trend of 2017? Bronde! There’s something about this masterful blend of blonde and brown that we just can’t seem to get enough of. It creates a sun-washed brunette finish that looks gorgeous on any cut. It can be used for both cool and warm complexions, just pick the right blonde and brown hues to match your skin tone.
