This season’s hair coloration is coming from an unexpected place of inspiration: your grandmother’s jewelry box. After a long summer of colorombré and granny hair, opal is coming on to the scene. Celebrity colorist Aura Friedman has been promoting this look heavily on social media. According to Aura, “cooler tones tend to give you a metallic shine and when you’re using ashy tones, right before you get gray, you get a pearl.” In other words, don’t try this look out at home.

But if you want to stand out this season, it’s certainly a look to go for. Click through to styles notes for more inspiration. –– Michelle Rotbart
