Pantone Fashion Colors For Spring 2017 Are Perfect For Your Next Haircolor Transformation


Every season, the Pantone Color Institute releases a selection of colors called the Pantone Fashion Color Report. As the name suggests, the report is a quick list of all the colors that are supposed to reign supreme during that fashion season. For Spring 2017, the Color Institute chose a selection that ranges from muted beiges to powerful pinks, and we think their choices couldn’t be more fashion-forward. In fact, this season’s shade selection is the perfect inspiration not only for a wardrobe upgrade but for your next haircolor transformation as well.

By choosing a shade from this latest range, you’re guaranteed to have a haircolor that’s not only flattering but also on trend. So, whether you’re thinking about trying a hair gloss for the first time or want to go bold with a vibrant haircolor, let the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2017 inspire your next haircolor journey. Want to know the best part? Redken’s new City Beats haircolor line can help your Redken stylist achieve any of these fun shades,. How cool is that? Here are a few haircolor transformations that you can use the Pantone shades to inspire your next look.

1. Primrose Yellow Haircolor

Take your hair to the next level with this muted yellow shade. It could work perfectly as an all over shade or could even be gorgeous for unexpected highlights.

Makeup Tip: To make your yellow strands pop even further, try adding heavy, black eyeliner to your regular beauty look. The clash of colors plays beautifully off one another and adds an almost grungy vibe to your signature style.

2. Pale Dogwood Haircolor

Pastel haircolors are all the rage for 2017. Kick off your next hair look by opting for this baby pink meets muted beige tone. It’s the perfect color for those who want to demurely hide their greys as the beige and pink tones can easily mask a faded hairline.

Makeup Tip: This haircolor pairs perfectly with a monochromatic beauty look. Reach for a baby pink blush and nude lip gloss to give your style a sophisticated edge.

3. Hazelnut Brown Haircolor

Stay on-trend every season with this subtle dark blonde shade. With a mix of brown and beige notes, this is sure to be the perfect haircolor for any skin tone.

Makeup Tip: Hazelnut strands practically beg for a creamy, dewy makeup look. Amp up the look of your haircolor by dabbing a liquid highlighter along your cheekbones, eye lids, and Cupid’s Bow. This added glow leaves your skin looking refreshed and your haircolor looking radiant.

Add some spice to your life with this flaming hot orange shade. As it’s a mixture of red, orange and brown tones, it’s a great way to add flair to your hair without looking too clownish.

Makeup Tip: Seeing as your hair is already hot, hot, hot, it’s all about creating balance with your makeup, so that your haircolor takes center stage. One of the best ways to do this is by using more neutral tones on the lips and cheeks. For instance, muted ginger and taupe shades go gorgeously with warmer haircolors. Play around with a few shades until you find your perfect look.
