Hottest Hair Colors of 2016
As 2016 comes to a close, we’re all about taking a look back at everything we’ve seen, done, and worn throughout the year. It’s pretty amazing as we look back at just 12 months to see all the trends that we’ve experienced – isn’t that the cool part about fashion and beauty, though? Since we’re winding things down to ring in a new year we thought it was the perfect time to chat about the hottest hair colors of 2016. Whether you rocked these hair colors yourself, admired them, or you’re looking for a little inspiration to switch up your hair color these hair colors were all the rage in 2016.
It’s no secret that bold hair colors were having a major moment throughout 2016. Between colors like bright purple and blue to rose gold hues – whatever shade someone adored was free game this year. We saw an abundance of ladies going for statement hair colors like never before, and we kind of loved it. Whatever the rise was, it was kind of this freeing thing to see a woman be bold enough to dye their entire head of hair one bold color (or multiple colors). There’s something about the bold hair colors that seem so chic and trendy, pictures were cruising through social media celebrating these bold hair colors. This hair color had to make it to the top of the list for the hottest hair colors of 2016 because we haven’t seen this much bold color so mainstream in… ever.
For a few years it really seemed like very dark hair colors were all the rage, but there year there was a major rise in the platinum blonde hair becoming so popular. When we say platinum blonde, it was really the almost white blonde hair color that’s so trendy on so many celebs. Kim Kardashian even dyed her famously dark hair this platinum blonde color a while back (although it was short lived). It was definitely the year of making a bold statement, and many ladies decided to make their statement with platinum blonde locks.
Not quite sure what we mean here? Odds are you’ve seen quite a few ladies rocking this hair color trend this year, it’s literally the combination of blonde and brunette hair colors. Typically, this bronde hair color was done in a way where the colors faded really gorgeously together with some sort of technique like an ombre or bayalage effect. Regardless, it was really fun to see that the blondes and brunettes were literally coming together this year. Since years past it’s always been about either being blonde or brunette – we love that there were no limitations and women were actually just opting for both hair colors. Imagine that!
It was definitely a year filled with exciting and different hair color trends, and you know what? We loved it! There was no shortage of statement making hair color options, regardless of your personal style and personality. What was your favorite of the hottest hair colors of 2016?
