Top hair colour trends for spring 2022 | Salon Services

hair colour trends

Discover the colours and techniques that your clients will be asking for, and the best products to achieve the look.

Spring is the time for fresh starts, which means there will be new hair colour trends set to dominate your business. Some clients will want to keep it subtle with a glossy refresh and others will want to fully embrace the spring vibe with a change and a pop of colour. Make sure you have the products and techniques you need to deliver this spring and summer’s most requested looks.

Trending clients

For your on-trend clients who change their hair literally with the season, you need to stock up on temporary colours that inspire. Perfect for a colour quick fix and express services, temporary dyes immediately refresh your client’s hair and come in both natural and vibrant shades. Lasting between 8-12 washes, the spring 2022 hair colours to watch out for include:

Pink Hair

Pink hair in a range of tones is an on-trend easy update for spring. Maria Nila’s vegan Colour Refresh masks have a great range ideal for customers who want bright pink hair or those looking for easy soft pastel pink tints. Infused with high quality pigments and argan oil, these easy to use hair masks leave your client’s colour looking refreshed with a silky smooth finish. The masks can even be mixed to create different tones that you can customise to your client.

Purple Hair

Purple hair is making a comeback, so get ready with the Schwarzkopf Chroma ID Bonding Color Mask. This semi-permanent mask is flexible enough to be used on its own, made into a custom shade with other Chroma ID colours or mixed with the Clear Bonding Mask to create a soft lilac, always popular in spring. The secret behind its high performance is that it strengthens your client’s hair during development to prevent damage.

Copper Hair

For clients wanting to add a touch of fire to their hair, we recommend the Kemon Yo Conditioner. This direct dye develops in as little as three minutes, and its easy to use mixture immediately gives your clients brand new copper hair with maximum shine and vitality.

Balayage refresh

We’re definitely seeing more of a shift for natural hair colour. Balayage delivers a low maintenance, expensive looking finish that’s growing in popularity and overtaking more classic highlights. This spring and summer balayage clients will ‘tint shift’, going a little lighter or darker, or asking for the slightly warmer Californian blonde look. It’s a subtle change that refreshes their look without being too dramatic. Make sure you stock up on products for your balayage like clay powders, glossy toners and products that give a multi-dimensional result and do the work for you. Here are some of our top picks to get you started.

Paul Mitchell Blonde

We’re proud to be an official supplier for Paul Mitchell, and their Blonde range includes the bestselling Skylight Clay Lightener, a rice based clay that offers up to seven levels of lift without flaking or drying. When mixed with the Paul Mitchell Cream Developer and any Paul Mitchell Toner, you have a creamy formula that retains moisture in your client’s hair during any freehand technique, resulting in a balayage that is soft and full of colour.

Maria Nila Bleach Collection

The Maria Nila Bleach collection uses vegan and cruelty-free ingredients to make your client’s balayage service a gentle experience. All it requires is two steps: mix the range’s Bleach Balayage Powder and Silver Shot Developer together and apply its smudge-free clay paste in any freehand technique on the hair. Improving the hair’s condition while offering consistent colour results, Maria Nila Bleach finishes the balayage with a light fragrance, the perfect way to end a pleasant treatment.

Redken Shades EQ

The Redken Shades EQ demi-permanent colour range is our top choice for giving balayages a multi-tonal gloss. With plenty of shades of choose from, what makes Shades EQ ideal for a busy hairdresser is that its ammonia-free liquid formula develops in as little as 20 minutes.
