How to Choose the Perfect Spring Break Hair Color

The perfect spring hair look is probably the most sought after, yet the most frustrating goal on our spring break list. There is so much variety to choose from that it is totally okay to get confused.  Now before you get muddled and make the wrong decision, it is a good idea to read up on what you are going for, and then make the perfect choice for you.

As per our style sources, there are four major hair color trends that are hot this spring.

Brown ombre hair is all the rage this season. To give you some ideas which shades to combine, we have a collection of photos.:

The very first one is also the one that has remained extremely popular for the past couple years. It is called the Ombré. Its main feature is that it makes use of darker colors at the roots which transition into a much lighter color near the middle and tips of the hair. This look is perfect for someone looking for a clear contrasting color.  Ombré might damage the health of your hair tips as a lot of bleach is used to lighten dark hair color.

The best advice to those who have naturally light hair or highlighted hair is to get your stylist to dye a root color from the roots to the mid of your hair. The process to get this look requires some patience and will probably take you around 3 to 4 hours, but it is definitely worth it!



The next look we have here is called the Sombre, a newer version of the Ombré look and a more subtle one. This look is perfect for you if you shy away from the sharp contrasts in the Ombré.

It uses fewer products and is a relatively healthier option. This look requires around 3 to 4 hours. If you go for this your hair color, it will look good for a long time as it calls for low maintenance and requires fewer touch ups.


Next, we have the Balayage, which is fairly new but has gained a lot of popularity. What sets this style apart from others is that hair is not foiled during product application, which means that the color saturation is low. This gives your hair a very natural, sun-kissed look. Low maintenance is what this style calls for, which makes it a great option for those who do not want to invest too much time or money and still look good. Overall your hair will have a much ‘clean’ appearance as compared to a Sombre or Ombré.




Lastly, we have the newest look called the Flamboyage!

This is very similar to Balayage. However, it is way more subtle and the ends are more lightened up according to taste. This is a hybrid of techniques used in both Balayage and Ombre. It is extremely low maintenance and keeps on looking fantastic even after your hair has grown out. The process for this is not very long and is dependent upon the hair and the initial hair color. It may take anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes to get this look.  

So these are our four hair options for spring! It is always okay to confuse them with each other as they incorporate some elements that are similar. Here is a comparison picture that will help you see what sets them apart.

If you cannot choose just one then go ahead and try them all, but make sure to keep your hair healthy and looked after with frequent oiling and protein treatments. It is always a good idea to use color friendly shampoos and conditioners, and limit hair styling tools when you have colored hair.
