Even natural brunettes can learn something from Priyanka Chopra, who upgraded her rich brown hair into a more dimensional chocolate shade. The look came courtesy of Sharon Dorram, master colorist at Sally Hershberger Salon. Dorram says 2018 will be the year of hair color ideas for brunettes, from rich, chocolate brown to warm amber hues. Our crystal ball predicts Chopra's photo cited as inspiration in colorists' chairs all next year.
In our opinion, Zoë Kravitz's platinum pixie was the chicest cut of the year. We all know how much upkeep goes into platinum hair, but who could argue that this look wasn't worth it? Pretty much every stylist we've talked to says our bleach obsession will only get stronger next year. "We're going to see even more blonds going bright," says Oscar Blandi.
All signs point to 2018 as the year of the brunette. "Root beer hair" is a rich brown with red or auburn highlights, seen on stars like Olivia Munn and Selena Gomez. Experts say this rich, dark look is expected to be popular all year long.
The beverage hair trend keeps on riding strong, and with it cream soda hair. It's a dirty blond shade perfect for the cooler months when you can't even pretend you just stepped off a sun-kissed beach. The color falls between icy platinum and golden blond, making it versatile enough to last through whatever 2018 brings us. (It's one of the best hair color ideas for blonds we've ever seen.)
With browns and reds on the rise, we expect to see blondes adding some flavor to their honey hues next year. Meet Blauburn: a hybrid of blond and auburn that's not quite as ginger as Cayenne Spice. Take Olivia Wilde, for example, who shows us that you can pack a lot of color into a short style.
