Social media hair colour trends for summer 2022

Summer 2022 is here and our social media feeds are already exploding with BOLD new hair-do’s that we can’t get enough of! With creations from the at-home colourists, to the creative professionals, we can see that the pastel hues of spring are slowly being left behind for vibrant tones and artistic combos. If you’re looking at going beyond just one colour for the summer, then here’s 4 of our favourite trends all from the feed of #directionshair:

Sunset Hair

Mirroring those summer sunsets has to be one of our top styles for the season. We recommend blending at least 3 colours to achieve the best sunset look; starting from the roots, to mids to tips. If you’re new at blending, it may be good to practice on an single hair extension, to get some good practice in before your full application.

If you’re feeling inspired, Sam’s sunset look below was achieved using a blend of Plum, Tangerine, Flamingo Pink and Apricot!

Juicy Tones

Our range of oranges colours aren’t just for autumn; these tones are perfect for achieving a zesty summer look. The lighter your base, the more vivid your orange will be, so don’t forget to apply onto the right level!

From the feed of #Directionshair, we can see the fruity faves are Fluorescent OrangePeach or Apricot. Having a new colour can also look extra bold with a new summer cut; check-out some inspo below for hair that’s sure to keep you cool.

Buzz Cuts

Having a buzz cut not only helps you keep unaffected by the heat, but also unleashes yours or your colourist’s creativity! Summer’s always the time of year us at Directions look forward to seeing a buzz cut, as majority of the time it’s teamed with a rainbow of art.

If you want your buzz cut to really stand out this season, why not get creative with our Fluorescent range? We’re sure this will really get you glowing.

Mermaid Locks

If you’re jetting off on holiday or want to feel the ocean vibes, why not match your hair to the hues of the sea. Creating the perfect mermaid hair can either be done with a blend of at least two colours or done in a split dye. We always recommend cooler tones to achieve dreamy lagoon hair.

Feeling inspired? This colour combo consists of Fluorescent Green and Midnight Blue and we definitely think it passes the vibe check for the season!
