- MOVE UP YOUR OMBRE
2016 was all about the sombres and ombres. Redken Artist, Celene Dupuis, suggests refreshing this sexy hair look by moving up your haircolor. Wondering what this means? Well, as Dupuis puts it “By moving up your ombre and balayage, you can keep things looking softer. Your stylist will keep the rooting on the scalp and use a hair gloss like Shades EQ for added dimension.” Dimension and glossy hair? Sign us up! This trend is great for those who already love their color, but are looking for something a little extra.

- WARM UP WITH WARMER TONES
Forget bronzer! Haircolor is a great way to add warmth to your complexion without piling on any makeup. Dupuis suggests ditching icy hues in the new year in favor of warmer tones. “Try warmer pastels such as peach, rose gold or pastel yellow for rich warm blonde” or opt for a warm rose gold or pumpkin spice haircolor. With even a simple hair gloss treatment, you can add rich tones to your hair that immediately brighten the look of your skin. Basically, haircolor is the new makeup!
