The prettiest summer hair colors EVER

By: The Beauty Experts at L'Oréal Paris

If you haven't already lightened up your hair color for summer, it's OK. In fact, now that we're midway through the season, you won't have to guess at the summer's biggest color trends. From warm platinum to multifaceted toffee hues, the following tones have emerged as the most covetable colors! Below, take a peek at the prettiest shades for your strands.

Shimmery Platinum BlondeShimmery Platinum

If going platinum is on your beauty bucket list, now is a good time to tint your tresses. Bright white and sun-filled days just seem to go hand in hand. Though, if you're not quite ready to take the plunge, ease into this eye-catching hue by highlighting a few face-framing strands in the sparkling white-blonde shade.

Although the names for these hair-lightening techniques continue to evolve, the truth is that you can't go wrong with any multidimensional hair color. Right now, we're crazy about chocolate brown infused with strands of copper, and flaxen blonde. We also love the upkeep: As your lightened locks grow out, using a root cover-up spray will buy time between touch-ups.
