What's the best way to stay cool in August? A refreshing hair color (and staying hydrated) of course! Today we're asking you to choose between these two summer ice queens: a chill lavender hue, and a thirst-quenching pale blue. What's your go-to summer shade?
The hair color: Both festival-ready and fiercely urban, purple has been one of this season's most popular hair colors. This cool-toned lavender shade stays just true enough to its blond base that you'll cause multiple double-takes as people trip over themselves to get a second look.
Styling: Show off your purple power by keeping your hair down. Remember, however, that lightened hair can dry out quickly, especially in the summer when UV rays can be particularly damaging, so use a regular hair masque like the one from Serie Expert's Solar Sublime collection which also helps protect against sun damage.
What the editors say: We love the hint of dark roots that give this sweet candy shade a rebellious edge! Remember to check with your colorist about what tones will look best with your particular skin tone.
The hair color: Inspired by the cool sea breeze, this icy blue hair color is a breath of fresh air. It's a bold color to pull off, but if you can handle it, why not go the extra mile and play around with color gradients, such as lighter tips or a full oceanic ombré?
Styling: Tying this color up would be a shame, so let it loose! To make sure your hairstyle makes just as much of a splash as the color does, sweep the hair into a side part and let the front section fall lightly over your forehead.
What the editors say: These days, hair color is like makeup, we can wear what we want in any number of bold combinations. Thanks to the temporary #ColorfulHair service by l'Oréal Professionnel, you can be a different color for every occasion, from icy blue to bright orange! Minimum commitment, maximum fun.
