The Most Popular Hair Colors of Spring 2019, According to Top Colorists

If a major cut isn't the spring hair change you had in mind, a new hair color is another option. Just like blunt bobscurtain bangs, and shag haircuts are the current "it" styles, every season has its hot hair colors, too.

As for what hair color you should try for spring 2019, there are a few important factors to keep in mind: Your hair's health, current base color, and how much maintenance you're willing to put in to maintain it. 

Still can't narrow down your choices? We turned to top colorists to find out this season's biggest hair color trends based on what shades have been the most popular among their clients. 

From deep chocolate brown, sunkissed strawberry, to subtle reflective highlights, this season's color trends cover all the bases, whether you're looking to go from brunette to blonde or simply want to warm up your current shade for spring. 

Ahead, all the hair color inspiration you need for spring 2019. 


Pastel Pink 

With pink hair, haivng a rosy outlook takes on a whole other meaning. Kate Reid, COLOR.ME by KEVIN.MURPHY design director, says that bubblegum pink hair like Maisie Williams's, along with other pastel shades like jade and peppermint, are only going to get bigger and bigger this season.

While you can expect a pink shade like the Game of Throne star's to last for around four weeks, Reid suggests treating your hair with a conditioning color gloss like one from KEVIN.MURPHY's COLOURING.ANGELS line to keep the color bright and balanced.

The Best New Hair Colors For Summer

Hit the refresh button on your hair with these inspired new hues.

It's almost rosé season (cue praise hand emoji) and for beauty lovers that means one thing: it's time for a new hair color—or at least a refresh. We asked Michael Bowman, Rob Peetoom advance stylist, and Kate Reid, global design director for Color.Me by Kevin.Murphy, to breakdown the hair color trends we should be trying in the warmer months. 

Honey Blonde

"Warmer tones will be everywhere this summer," says Bowman. "Think easy upkeep and non-committal looks." A warmer blonde hue (instead of platinum), like the one seen on supermodel Gigi Hadid, won't require bi-weekly salon appointments. After all, you shouldn't have to spend half the summer with foil in your hair.

Steely Stone

Reid describes stone as "a grey slate edge with a new smoky balayage color through the ends." It is also a great alternative for men who are looking to refresh color.

Rose

Rose hair is still going strong. Reid says to pull off this look, go for a dusty rose if you have a cool skin tone. Rose-pink and rose-apricot will help warmer skin tones really glow.

Golden Brunette 

Bowman says golden brunettes work with nearly every skin complexion from fair to olive. "It’s all about the placement of the highlights or balayage," he says. "Highlights heavier in the front will look better on darker skin tones. With fairer skin tones, your colorist should disperse the highlights all throughout the hair to avoid the potential of looking washed out." 

Peppermint 

Leon Bennett

Another bold color to try this summer: peppermint. The key to keeping color vibrant is good upkeep. "I like a refresh every six to eight weeks," says Reid. "Kevin.Murphy Colouring Angels has a line or warm and cool shades that work like a lip gloss to add beautiful tone and create amazing shine in-between salon visits. You just use them instead of your conditioner twice a week."

"Sweetheart" Hair Is the Dreamiest Color For February

Valentine's Day date? Nah, we've found a dreamy hair color that'll make you want to skip the dinner on Feb. 14 and opt for a day at the salon instead. Introducing "sweetheart" hair: the adorable hair trend that features shades of pink with swirls of purple and gold, and it's as romantic as it is fun. Plus, since the candy love hearts aren't available this year, sweetheart hair is the next best thing to satisfy your craving.

The color was created by Kate Reid, the design director for Color Me by Kevin Murphy, as an intense rose-pink shade that works with both cool and warm skin tones. Just like Valentine's Day and candy hearts, you can tailor a "call me" or "kiss me" hue just how you like it.

Whether you want a short and sweet duration of pink dye or want the color to last until Spring and beyond, "sweetheart" hair is easy to tailor to your lifestyle. Reid suggested that if you want your hair to last for February and beyond, adding the Kevin Murphy Colouring Angels is like adding lip gloss to the hair; it adds shine and maintains tone.

AHFA: ANNOUNCING THE 2018 WINNERS

Kate Reid

On Sunday 15th April, the great and the good of the Australian hairdressing industry descended on Sydney’s iconic Luna Park to celebrate our country’s largest and most successful independent hairdressing awards program, the Australian Hair Fashion Awards.

The AHFA’s took place in front of a sell-out audience of over 900 hairstylists, media and celebrities all gathered together to celebrate the best of the best in Australian hair, fashion and beauty.

Hosted by the beautiful Lauren Phillips, the evening also featured a special performance by 90’s music legend Ultra Naté who then went on to rock the crowd with a DJ set at the exclusive after party.

Special guest and hairstylist to the stars Jen Atkin flew in from LA to help celebrate the crème de la crème of Australian hair. Jen counts models Gigi and Bella Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, Kaia Gerber (that’s Cindy Crawford’s daughter to you and me!) and the whole Kardashian/Jenner clan as her clients. She also has an Instagram following of 2.3 MILLION fans, so to say she’s the hottest property in hairdressing right now is kind of an understatement!

Jen accompanied her great friend, Australian hair legend and brand guru Kevin Murphy who celebrated the launch of his incredible new line KEVIN MURPHY COLOR.ME by sponsoring the 2018 AHFA’s, where he created an incredible fashion and hair show which blew the audience away in its creativity and artistry!

AHFA’s have once again proved that they are the big guns when it comes to industry recognition. Creative Director of the Awards David Mannah says “Once again the international judging panel of the AHFA’s reflects the growth of our awards and the relevance of Australian Hairdressing on a world stage. When you have Eugene Souleiman and Sam McKnight, two gods of British Hairdressing in a room together to look at work from homegrown Australian talent, then you know you are doing something right!

Brand founder Kevin Murphy adds “Fashion has always played a huge role in the KEVIN.MURPHY brand so partnering with the AHFA’S to launch our revolutionary new product which is truly a celebration of hair and fashion seems like a perfect fit.

The 2018 photographic categories were judged in London by UK hairdressing royalty including Anthony Mascolo, Akin Konizi, Zoe Irwin, A-list colourist Nicola Clark, current British Hairdresser of the Year Sally Brooks catwalk favourite Eugene Souleiman and global hairdressing legend Sam McKnight.

2018 Business judges included: Christopher Crellin (CEO, American Influencer Awards), Daniel Abraham (Director, Platform Group), Paul Reynolds (Entrepreneur), Wendy El Khoury (Founder Wedded Wonderland, Creative Business Hub.)

2018 Product judges included Bonnie Gillies (Oz Beauty Expert), Carli Alman (Beauty Crew), Emily Algar (Byrdie Beauty), Erin Cook (Elle, Harper’s Bazaar), Kelly Baker (Body + Soul), Kelsey Ferencak (OK & NW Magazine), Kristy Johnson (Daily Mail), Michael Brown (Beauty Guru.)
