If hair color plays a role in our mood, this summer is about to get a lot happier. The budding highlight and balayage trends, though very much a choose-your-own-adventure story, all have the same undertone: optimism.
Whether you want to go blonder, cooler, shinier, or your only criteria is that you don't have to schedule a touchup until September, there's a color trend that hits. If you want a big change and maximum brightness, consider platinum; if you're coming out of quarantine with five inches of root growth and a new laissez faire attitude towards color, simply enhance what you already have with the "less is more" highlight.
Find it all, and something that sparks joy for you, in the pro's guide to hair color for summer 2021, ahead.
