Can you believe we’re already in the final quarter of 2019? Taking a look back at the trends this year, one of our favorite hair trends of 2019 has been the vibrant coral color, worn by a bold few.

The trendsetter is of course Pantone, who traditionally chooses a colour for the year.

 

Coral hair with pink highlights work well against her cool-toned skin.

Coral is a flattering colour, as it works well on all skin tones – you may just need to work with your colourist or stylist to tweak the perfect tone of coral just for you.

Tip: Check your veins to figure out your skin tone!

  • Warm skin tone – greenish veins.
  • Cool skin tone – bluish or purplish veins.
  • If you have darker skin, with warm and yellow or olive undertones, go for a stronger/brighter coral with warm pink or orange undertones.
  • Cool skin tones with paler skin? Look for pink undertones to your coral.

Here are some of our favourite interpretations of this colour trend:

 

Pantone’s hair color of the year: Coral
Warm orangey coral works well against her skin tone.

This vibrant hair colour works well especially with a shorter cut. Those who aren’t quite ready to bleach their entire head of hair can also go for an ombre or highlights instead, which create a more subtle, alluring effect.

It’s important to work with a colourist you trust, so that the colour comes out vibrant and long-lasting!
