Hot Highlighting Trends for Hot Summer Fun

May 31 2021


Summer is coming up quickly, and with the changing season comes the need for some change. As we look forward to sunshine, heat, vacations, and summer fun, we may also be looking to change our looks. If you’re thinking some highlights or whole new hair color may be on the horizon, we’ve put together some hair highlighting trends we’re seeing this season.

Face-framing blonde. Get your ‘summer on’ with a gorgeous blonde balayage blended with a dazzling butter blonde money piece. It’s a perfect summer look that will glisten in the sunshine whether you’re at the beach or a summer wedding. This look will definitely turn heads.

Sun-kissed brunette. Typically, we talk about sun-kissed blondes, but this look is for the brunettes out there to let their natural color shine through. We start with your natural base color and add delicate light blonde babylights, strategically placed, to allow the sunshine to reflect and shimmer. This is a multi-dimensional look that will look great all summer long.

Ginger, not ginger. If you aren’t a natural redhead but wish you were, you’ll love this look. The secret is to layer different shades of red – ginger, copper, auburn, burgundy – so that it looks like you were born a natural redhead. Red never goes out of style and with the talent of your Meraki hair colorist, they’ll never know it’s not natural.

Ash-blonde with rainbow highlights. Looking to live a little this summer? This beautiful fantasy color paired with a silvery-ash blonde base with a ton of multicolor balayage highlights will light up your summer. You can soften the look with pastels, go bold with bright highlights, or mix it up with a blend of both.

Mermaid hair, don’t care. Calling all brunettes with a wild side – this look is for you. With a deep, rich black base and shimmering purples and blues, this ombre-style hair color is a 

stunning way to celebrate summer and show off your personality!

At Meraki Hair & Makeup Studio, we use luxury hair color lines by Lakme, Paul Mitchell, & Redken to help you decide on the perfect color for your lifestyle, skin tone, and personality.
