A Guide to 2020 Hair Trends

1. Shadow Roots

Anyone who likes to let a little bit more time than recommended pass between hair dye appointments will love this year’s trend of shadow roots. This look is achieved by dying your roots a darker shade than the rest of your hair to create a contrast. It works well with a light blonde or honey blonde hair color.

3. Silver Blonde

2. Chocolate Brown

As trends shift away from blonde highlights, natural brunettes are opting for a more natural dark chocolate color. If you still want highlights, try a milk chocolate brown with soft lightening around your face and at the mid-shaft and ends of your hair.

4. Caramel or Red Highlights

Brunettes who want bright and warm overtones are predicted to opt for caramel or red highlights in the upcoming year. Caramel colors lighten your hair with a less-stark contrast than blonde alternatives, while golden, copper, and auburn can add a subtle touch of reflective red color.
