Summer Hair Colour Trends 2024

Published date 06 June 2024

Back to article listing
Summer is upon us, and it’s the perfect time for a hair colour refresh that can take your client's look to the next level. As a professional hairdresser, staying ahead of the trends is crucial when suggesting certain looks to your clients, or if your clients want to achieve a particular trend they have seen online. This summer, we are seeing a diverse array of vibrant and subtle shades that cater to every personality and style, so let’s jump into the hottest hair colour trends for summer 2024.

1. Spiced Rum

This captivating blend of deep, warm reds and rich browns is perfect for a darker-haired client who is unsure of committing to the highly crazed Cowboy Copper look. While this colour still radiates warmth and adds depth, it’s perfect for those who want to make a bold statement without straying too far from their natural hues. We love this shade due to its versatility; it suits various skin tones and adds a touch of spice to any hairstyle.

2. Candlelit Brunette


Candlelit Brunette, also known as a Golden Brunette, is all about adding a subtle, sun-kissed glow to a brunette base. With it being summer, this is the perfect time to have any of your clients go lighter, and this doesn’t have to mean a full head of bleach! This trend involves integrating golden highlights that catch the light subtly, creating a warm and radiant effect. It’s the perfect choice for clients who prefer a natural look that adds a touch of summer light.

3. Barely-There Pastels

For clients who love to experiment with colour but like to keep it subtle, Barely-There Pastels are the ideal option. We’re talking soft washes of pink, peach, lilac and blue that are almost ethereal! These colours create a delicate and elegant look that adds a whimsical touch to any hairstyle. If your clients have been longing for a pastel makeover, summer is the time to do it!

4. Espresso Brunette

Espresso Brunette is a deep, dark brown that exudes sophistication and elegance. This timeless colour offers a sleek and polished look for clients who want something bold, yet low-maintenance. The richness of the espresso brunette adds depth and dimension to the hair, making it a client favourite among those who love darker tones. We recommend maintaining this gorgeous colour with a gloss, such as magi:gloss from Quif, that is perfect for adding back richness to the hair while adding a glossy shine.

5. Apricot Blonde

The Apricot Blonde shade is a delightful mix of blonde with soft hints of peach to exude a light, glowy warmth. It’s a perfect choice for clients looking to brighten up their look for summer while adapting a trendy and unique look. The subtle copper undertones and the pastel hues create a refreshing and vibrant appearance to the hair that screams summer-ready. Top tip: Apricot Blonde can be prone to fading, especially with increased sun exposure. We recommend protecting the hair with a colour-safe shampoo with UV protection to keep hair vibrant and to stop dulling, such as the [wa]shed by Shed Vivid Bloom Colour Lock UV Protect shampoo.

6. Cherry Chocolate

Seeing the Cherry Red hair trend evolve earlier this year, Cherry Chocolate has also begun to make its way into salons as a highly desired hair colour choice. Cherry Chocolate is a deliciously rich colour that combines the best of brown and red tones, with features of deep browns and an infusion of cherry red. This mix is a perfect combination for adding warmth and dimension to your client's hair. Dare your darker clients to add this stunning cherry glaze to their hair this summer to spice up their everyday look.

7. Butter Blonde

Last but not least, we couldn’t miss out on the ultimate sun-kissed hair shade of the year, Butter Blonde. With evidence in the name, the Butter Blonde shade has those buttery-yellow tones that allow for a bright and warm look. This shade gives all things summer, with its summery brightness and gold reflectives that will give your clients an ultimate glow.

Summer 2024 is all about embracing both bold and subtle changes, with a trend to suit every client’s taste. Encourage your clients to try something new and exciting this summer season, so your salon can be the go-to place for the ultimate summer hair transformations!
