8 of the trendiest hair colours for summer season (and we're in LOVE)

Brought to you by Wella Professionals. 

If there's one thing in life we can be super conscious and protective of - it's our hair.


Now that we're in the midst of the summer season, we might have more of a bronzed glow (even if from a bottle), and sometimes sunny season just calls for an all-new look, cut, or COLOUR.

If it's the latter you're on the hunt for (plus some chill time at the salon) - here are some of the hottest, most sought after shades and tones of the season. And remember, ask for Wella Professionals when at the salon.

Their new permanent colour, developed with ME+ (the biggest hair dye innovation since the discovery of oxidative hair), gives the purest colour results with natural depth and shine, less damage colour after colour, while also reducing the risk of developing a new allergy to hair colour by up to 60 times*. (Winning!)

1. Chestnut Waves


To add something extra to dark hair, go for a more intense glossy look with Koleston Perfect, and add just the right amount of chestnut warmth. With a few loose curls or waves, like Suzanne Jackson's above, this look is utterly stunning.

2. Caramel-Rosé Ends


It's a near burgundy look and we promise you'll fall in love. The extra flair this colour gives is strong and feminine. Warm caramel woven into brunette hair, along with a touch of rich pink. We're in love.

3. Gothic Brown


Not black, but rather an incredibly rich, deep brunette colour. It gives a sharp yet appealing contrast, with a super edgy vibe, as seen on beauty and fashion writer Triona McCarthy above.

4. Peach Perfect

We think someone like Jessica Chastain could pull this off amazingly! Or of course, ourselves. Honestly, why not? With the right mix of strawberry blonde, a hint of red and peach - we're feeling ultra classy yet fun. And just look at that volume and shine. (Dreamy!)


5. Buttery Blonde

Creating a rich blonde look is easy-peasy with Wella Professionals protective colour. It nourishes hair, leaving it looking full of life. Toss in a few slightly warmer tones and you're all set.

6. Toffee Top

To suit your bronzed goddess summer glow, warm toffee is an ideal choice.

7. Sunny Highlights

If you're loving your brunette tresses, but want a little more something, adding some colour highlights could be just the trick, as seen on fashion and lifestyle blogger Ciara O' Doherty. Very on-trend this summer and very fitting with our current spell of non-stop sunshine.

8. Blonde Bombshell

If you're loving the idea of voluptuous blonde locks, remember a different shade blending out from the roots, and naturally into the fairer blonde further down can look superb, and no doubt help delay having to dye it again so soon after.

Wella Professionals brings three significant benefits and qualities to coloured hair that are unmatched anywhere else. So be sure to ask for Wella Professionals before you dive into creating a new summer look with your hair stylist.

Say hello to stunningly beautiful and balanced colour results, thanks to the natural depth and shine promised by Wella Professionals. Oh, and less damage to those precious locks too. It's a win-win if you ask us!

*For People Not Allergic to Hair Colorants.

Although the risk of developing new allergy is reduced, there remains a risk of allergic reaction that can be severe. Always ask your stylist to perform an allergy test 48hours before each coloration. Strictly follow safety instructions and consult Wella Professionals online. If you've ever experienced an allergic reaction to hair colorants, you should not colour. ME+ is present in specific shades of pure naturals, rich naturals, vibrant reds, special blondes and deep browns of the Koleston Perfect brand.
