My clients are turning to multi-dimensional colors such as rustic coppers as recently seen on Kendall Jenner at the Met Gala, following the “shiny” hair trend.
Ask for: Shine-enhancing copper with a gold frame to complement skin tone.

Kendall Jenner’s copper color is an outstanding hair trend in 2022
Brown mushrooms are the stars of the show this season. Offering the perfect balance of color for brunettes who want to add a “glow”. Think Gigi Hadid, polished but not blonde or brunette – a nice middle ground somewhere in between.
Ask for: muted browns with beige freehand parts to enhance the mushroom tone and add subtle summer notes to the hair

Lived in color
With the “lived in color” trend still hugely popular, customers are asking for more from a polished California balayage. Think liquid gold highlights, strawberry blonde and defined eyeliner. 2022 is all about bright, warmer tones that complement every skin tone type as seen on the likes of Sienna Miller.
Ask: Freehand sweep, focusing on the frame of the face with liquid gold shimmer to enhance shine all over
2022 means brighter, warmer tones according to Tommie
