Sun-kissed brunette. If you’re a brunette and want to add some shine and dimension to your hair this summer, this look is for you!

Face-framing blonde. You’ll be seeing a lot of this face-framing blonde gorgeousness this season. If you have blonde hair that you want to lighten up for summer, let your Special FX stylists show you how this can transform your look. This hair coloring process combines a blonde balayage and blends it with an alluring buttery blonde money piece to frame your face with stunning blonde highlights. This look will definitely glisten in the sun while turning heads.

Ash-blonde with tie-dye highlights. Want it all? Ash-blonde is the perfect base for rainbow highlights. With multicolor balayage highlights, you can light up your summer with the most popular pastels or bold neon hues. This grounds you in the silvery-ash blonde base while giving you the freedom to show off your spirit.

Iridescent unicorn. If you’ve been wanting to experiment with the silver trend, why not incorporate some fantasy color in with it? Your Special FX colorists can help you look like you’ve just stepped out of a fairytale with silver locks intermeshed with pink/purple highlights all throughout the hair, giving it that magical quality.

Intense summer color. The trend toward luminous fantasy colors isn’t slowing down – so why not join in the fun? Glossy vivid hues like blue, lavender, and any color under the rainbow are showing up as subtle shades of highlights and lowlights. You determine how vibrant you want the color to customize a look that’s right for your personality.

Peek-a-boo color. Want that intense fantasy color but not quite so boldly? Start with a deep, rich black base and use brilliant purples and blues hidden under the base to shimmer through as you move. Also called mermaid’s hair, this ombre-style hair color is the perfect way to kick off summer and have them do a double-take.
