Spruce Up Your Color for Spring and Summer

Even subtle color changes add dimension to a new spring cut. 
Spring and summer are the perfect times to freshen up your hair color. Our hair pros have these five tips for easing into a new look:

1. Start small

Highlights around the face are a good first step when you start thinking about spring but aren’t ready to go all-out.

2. Think ahead

Talk to your stylist first to decide on the shade that’s going to best suit your skin tone for spring and summer.

3. Beyond blonde

For brunettes who would prefer not to go blonde, consider an auburn red. It can really punch up your complexion going into spring.

4. Bright idea

Lighten up your winter hue by a couple of shades. Your stylist can recommend the best shade for you. Highlights are another way you can brighten your look and ease you into a lighter summer color.

5. Be gentle

Use products made for color-treated hair, like Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner.
