Best Hair Color Predictions for 2020
December 1 2019
It’s 2020, and the new decade is the perfect reason to change up your hair color. Before you make the change, check out some of the hottest new hair color trends that we’ll be seeing everywhere for the new decade, many of which are exciting new twists on some of the best shades we’ve seen in the past.
Caramel highlights. Caramel is trending everywhere and it’s warm and vibrant. As a highlight color, it gives you a lot of options for making the look as subtle or contrasted as you want for an extra opportunity to really show off your style. Go with a dark contrast and you’ve got iced coffee or butterscotch stripes. Choose a light shade with less contrast and you’ve got a warm salted caramel sundae! Caramel is one of those timeless shades that is really having its moment as we move further along into the 2020s.
Twilighting. For a shimmering look with tons of dimension, twilighting is the newest trend for the new decade. It’s all about professionally applied balayage and babylights that mimic the sun’s rays at twilight. With its warm undertones, this brunette shade reflects light to create shimmering golden hues.
Shadow roots. Shadow roots are quickly becoming the ombre of 2020, with a more subtle difference that makes roots appear as shadows rather than a stark contrast between the base and the ends, with light highlights strategically placed root to end. It’s a low-maintenance color that’s quickly gaining popularity for the new decade.
Dip-dye colors. This decade’s answer to the ombre is the updated version of the classic dip-dye. Once a precursor to the stark ombre and balayage, now it’s following up the ombre craze with a style all its own. The new dip-dye has less contrast than it once had, but it’s still a bold statement that really stands out. It looks its best when using shades that really work well with the dark base shade.
Icy silver blondes. Icy silver is this decade’s answer to platinum blonde, with a glossy, silvery tone over a pure white with no brassy yellow undertones. We expect to see a lot of it in the coming year as cool tones dominate the hair color trends. It’s an especially great choice for cold weather that makes a bold, brilliant statement with icy cool shine.
Cool brunettes. Brunette is getting even cooler for 2020 with the emphasis on cool tones in this year’s trends. Espresso is a rich, stunning color that falls into this cool brunette category. It looks especially gorgeous against medium to dark skin tones. Ash brown colors are suited to any skin tone and include light or medium ash brown or mushroom brown, a semi-ash color with subtle shades of brown and grey.
Cool milk chocolate brunettes. Milk chocolate is as luscious as it sounds, a gorgeous blend of light highlights against a medium brown base, with babylights framing the face to highlight your best features. If you have naturally brown to dirty blonde hair, cool milk chocolate may be the perfect brunette shade for you in 2020.
Spicy warm reds. Reds are always part of the color palette, and each season brings new options for a different twist on traditional red. For 2020 it’s all about spicy warm shades that spice up the traditional classic ginger. Other options in the warm category are copper tones or strawberry blonde.
Orchard red highlights. Want to try red without making a huge commitment? Orchard red highlights are the perfect trend for you for the new decade. They work with a dark brown base against the orchard red balayage highlights for a look that adds interest and dimension without going with a full head of red.
