As 2010 passed, we waved goodbye to a great year for style with various celebrities, icons and public figures fighting for the title of Hair Color Hero. So, what’s new in 2011?
Here at HairColorCode HQ we went through a staggering 12 different hair colors last year, and we are well under way to beating that this year (it’s all part of the job!) We strive to keep you updated with all the colors that are setting the worlds of celebrity and fashion on fire, so we have been keeping our eyes on the latest trends all the way from the catwalk to the shopping malls. Here is our hair color guide for 2011:
It’s all about the Royals
The whole world had their eyes on London this summer due to the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. As ever, style and fashion are at the forefront of reacting to these trends and you can expect to see the regal look take the world by storm this year. When this comes to hair color, it’s all about being under-stated and elegant, and we would suggest looking for a mid-range moderate brown to match Kates stunning look.
If you want to stick with the Royal theme, but feel like being a bit more adventurous than a moderate brown, you can always go for the other color which has dominated the fashion world since the engagement was announced; Royal Blue. After William proposed to Kate by offering her his mothers (the late Princess Diana) engagement ring, the world fell back in love with the sapphire stone and its deep blue tones. Since the engagement was announced there has been a boom in sapphire jewelry and Union Jack fashion, which means that royal blues are dominating the style world. If you want to add some blue tones to your hair color you can be a subtle as you like, with the look being particularly striking when used blended into dark brunette and black hair.
Look To The Stars
In 2010 Rihanna was undoubtedly the biggest starlet in the world, and not only was she lighting up the music charts, she also led the way in style and fashion. Here at HairColorCode HQ we love her quirky and unique look, and her bravery in experimenting with new hair styles and colors. Rihannas meteoric rise to fame looks to continue in 2011, and we recommend keeping your eye on the Princess of Pop to discover the latest trends before they hit the streets. Rihanna was last spotted at the Vogue 2011 shoot, sporting a bold deep pink that shows she is still experimenting, and still getting it right!
The Radical Change
2011 isn’t going to be a year for tinkering with the colors in your natural range, it’s all about drastic change. We are going to see an influx of celebrities and style icons going from blonde to brunette, from brunette to blonde, and everyone flocking to go red! We have already seen drastic hair changes from Natasha Poly, Eniko Mihalik and Lily Cole, and this doesn’t look like a year where anyone will be doing things by half. So if you have ever considered a radical change in your hair color, 2011 is the year to go for it!
Hot Hot Summer
The experts are telling us that the world is going to see a heat wave this year, which means we were all be flocking to the beach as soon as the summer hits. With guys and gals across the globe basking in the beautiful weather, the natural sun kissed look is going to be huge. They key to achieving this look is by going for a light, natural blonde with plenty of different tones, or if you have darker hair, try to add the lightest tones within your natural range.
So, there are our tips for the hair colors that are going to be a sensation this year, and fear not, we will have our ear to the ground to keep you up to date with the latest hair color trends as and when they happen.
