This formula is a happy medium between two of my favorite color trends: rose gold and gray violet. Rose gold is slightly warm, and adding it to an ultra-cool shade softens and brightens. This color is unusual in an understated way. The subtle pink tone makes skin glow while the balanced beige that makes up the hies primary tone provides a classy neutral backdrop.

Summer is coming and hair is getting beachy, ombre-ed, and highlighted. Brighter, lighter strands are perfect for a little DIY experimentation. As a long-time colorist, I’m not a huge fan of people coloring their hair at home, but I’m also a realists. There are some things you should never try on your own—like color correction, or taking brown hair platinum blonde—but adding a touch of pastel to pre-lightened hair is fairly safe and easy, if you’re using the right color. I recommend pink. You can, of course try any shade you please, but pink is most likely to produce satisfying results. Wondering why? Click the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
