Reader Request: The ‘It’ Hair Colour of 2014


Just yesterday, we showed you our top 5 picks of the upcoming seasons hair styles. You guys requested that we look into the hot hair colours for 2014 and that we did!


One colour is coming out on top as the hue to be seen in- platinum blonde! And according to top hair stylists and colourists, it’s the brighter the better. We’ve seen the look on the catwalks for this season and now it’s filtering down through the celebrity world, with stars like Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian being the blondest they have ever been.


As it’s quite a severe colour, it’s definitely not going to be something that everyone out there will want to try. So for those of you looking for colour direction outside of the platinum blonde look, colourists in the know say to go for a bold, solid colour to tick the trend boxes. Kyle White, lead colourist at top American salon, Oscar Blandi, says this years look is “colour like you mean it: no in-between shades or wishy-washy tones” and that means no high lights! It’s go bold or go home ladies!


And what’s on it’s way out? According to Kyle White, ombre hasn’t quite had its day yet, but his recommendation is to move towards a softer ombre style with a less defined colour shift. What he is hoping to see the back of in 2014 is unorthodox colour trends like blue and pink hair, that we have seen on celebrities of late. We’ll wait and see!

Will platinum be your colour in 2014?
