What better way to ring in 2019 than with a new hair color? From leaning into the Pantone Color of the Year to seeing some of our favorite 2018 colors continue to flood our Insta feeds, we spoke with Stephanie Brown, master colorist at Eddie Arthur Salon, about five hair color trends that are going to be big next year. Take notes and get ready to be inspired.
How could Pantone’s 2019 Color of The Year not make this list? Think of living coral as an edgier version of the very popular pastel pink trend that we’ve come to know and love.
“It works as an everyday color; it’s soft, easily wearable, yet still empowering and attention-grabbing,” Brown says of the hair color. “It enhances everyone’s eye color and softens all skin tones.” The shade works best for those with neutral or warm skin tones, but can be adjusted by adding more pink to cool it down or orange to warm it up.

Highlights are the happy medium of elevating your hair color without fully committing to a whole new shade. For blondes, look for a rooted golden blonde or a dirty blonde. “The hair is always brighter as the hairline, but when you shadow the roots to make it slightly darker than the ends and you get a longer wear out of your highlights,” she says.
These colors can work on all skin tones because you’re keeping your natural base color. If you have cooler skin tones go with a neutral to warm highlights.

If you’re brunette, go for more golden and coppery highlights. Brown suggests getting a few “pieceier” highlights over too many highlights throughout to avoid looking brassy.

I woke up this morning feeling a little defeated. Looking back at where I have been and the “success” I’ve had, and then looking forward to where I want to go and feeling so far away from it. After I acknowledged that, I realized that I wasn’t focusing at all on the present… the now… and the joy, happiness and gratitude that comes from the process! So I felt sorry for myself, I cried, I felt it, and then I did something that I did NOT want to do today… work out! 💪🏼 So I worked out, became present in the moment, and I’ve had so much more appreciation for the experience I’m having RIGHT NOW! Therefore able to let my true self come through and not let this self doubt and fear take over! So I encourage you to have some courage. Don’t let fear stop your progress. Do something that scares the shit out of you today, or just do something that you really don’t want to do, and soak in every moment! 🤗 I know I feel about 10 lbs lighter, not from the workout, but from eliminating the stress and fear I was putting on myself!
This is like platinum blonde’s cooler sister. “It’s a very pale, heavily highlighted powdery blonde with a slight hint of baby blue,” Brown explains. “It’s more neutral and white blonde instead of an ashy blonde.
She says this shade looks best on paler skin tones and neutral to pink skin tones. To modify for other skin tones, go with a more neutral blonde or white rather than the bluish white.

Jet black is both bold and rich. The hair color took over this winter and will continue to do so well into the next year. According to Brown, this shade goes well with the glass hair trend because the black will give the shine you want for the style.
Because of its rich hue, it can wash most skin tones out. While it may work best on olive skin tones, the hair color expert advises using self-tanner or bronzer to add warmth to your skin.
