The beauty of brown hair is it’s amazing versatility. An earthy base can either be darkened into a dark chocolate or lightened to a delicious warm honey brown. The current color on trend is the latter, a perfect golden brown hue. We can credit the rise of this color to the Danes, as in the Scandinavian models that are dominating the fashion scene. Examples include everyone from the original cool queen Freja Beha Erichsen whose signature tawny shag is as devil-may-care as her personal style, to rising newcomers like Regitze Christensen and Mathilde Brandi. Will honey brown trump the platinum tresses the Danes are known for? Too early to tell, but click through to the notes to see the sun-kissed brunette manes that  model approved. ––  Michelle Rotbart  Click for StyleNotes →

I was delighted to see Laura’s opening post for today. I’m a big believer that fashion and beauty directly influence each other. So while different silhouettes of jeans have trended over the years (you read it here first, bell bottoms and embroidery are about to be in) the latest denim trend has nothing to do with pants. The style is called denim hair but witty types are using ‘jair’ (jean + hair). This new hair hue takes its name from the indigos that are synonymous with Levi’s or J Brand staples. And just like your jeans, the colors of blue span from acid wash to dark navy, the spectrum as dramatic as the trend itself.  So whether you want to rock gray, stone wash, dark, or over-dyed blue, the possibilities are endless. It may not be as easy as slipping on a pair of boyfriend jeans, but it’s definitely a statement of style.

Sienna Miller is one of my fashion idols. She always looks gorgeous, but never overdone. I love her clavicle-grazing length, her long center parted bangs, and this tawny blend of hues. The warm, almost-red brown at the roots gradually fades into caramel gold ends, for a soft, ombre effect. After last year’s barrage of vibrant hues I’m loving, soft earthy hair colors. This look is subtle, but still fashion forward, and perfect for giving sun-deprived skin a radiant glow. Get the professional formulas in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Pantone calls their Rose Quartz shade calming, persuasive and gentle. It’s certainly soft, but when applied to hair fibers instead of cloth, it feels a bit more playful and fashion forward. It’s a very feminine hue and I love the way it contrasts the bold geometry of the cut pictured above. If you’re looking for a hue that’s soft, feminine, and fashion forward, this soft pink is an excellent choice. Get the professional formula in the notes. — Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Colorists often use artistic terms like “depth” and “shadow” when describing methods that blend different values, but few hair colors actually create the illusions of light and darkness. Highlights and ombre are both highly exaggerated versions of natural color variation that hint at, but do not create the illusion of, light and shadow. In the last few years, however, with the emergence of painting techniques, hair color is getting closer and closer to mimicking the natural effects of light and shadow, creating elegant illusions.
