Spring Hair Color Trends With Tracey Cunningham

One of my all time favorite colorists, the fabulous Tracey Cunningham of the Byron and Tracey Salon  in Beverly Hills – and Redken Creative Consultant – (known for coloring the locks of such A-listers as Gwyneth Paltrwo, Fergie, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez – the latter of which has been rocking some fierce highlights on American Idol this season) shares her Spring/ Summer color tips for blondes, brunettes and redheads.

Holy run-on sentence!

Here is Tracey’s trendiest advice for each hair hue:

Spring/Summer 2011 Trend #1: Brunettes

”The beautiful chestnut brown, seen on Jennifer Lopez, will be huge in the Spring and Summer months. A great base with shine and vitality with some beautiful light highlights close to the face creates an amazing glow. Also, the ombré style will be another great transition into summer for brunettes, with the gradation of color as it gets lighter towards the ends. As the weather warms up, even brunettes like to brighten up their color – it won’t get too dark or dull!”

Spring/Summer 2011 Trend #2: Redheads

“The reds moving into Spring will be really strong and vibrant. Emma Stone loves to play with different shades of red, but always has a really strong base of deep, almost burgundy color that gives her that extra sass and personality. Redheads will definitely trend in this direction!”

Spring/Summer 2011 Trend #3: Blondes

“As we move into Spring/Summer of 2011, the ombré style will be extremely prevalent with the blondes. Like with Drew Barrymore’s look, the roots that fade into blonde gives her a natural summer beach feel.”

Hope you have some new color inspiration… I’m loving the ombre look (as I have been seen last season!)… and will def be sticking with the darker roots, lighter locks for Spring.
