What Hair Colours are Currently in Fashion?

So you’re thinking about changing your hair colour? You’re not alone! Every year, thousands of people decide to switch up their look by trying out new hair colours. But with so many different hair shades to choose from, it can be tough to know which one will suit you best. To help you decide, we’ve put together a list of the hottest hair colours currently in fashion. So whether you are looking to add some subtle tones to your natural colour or are looking to completely change it up, read on to find out the hottest hair colours of 2022!


From Billie Eilish to Florence Pugh, it is clear to see some of the biggest names in show business have taken to darker shades of hair in 2022. These warming tones have an empowering effect while still being low maintenance. Another advantage of switching to brown hair is hair health. The need for less chemical treatment is certainly popular at the moment with younger generations, and we expect this hair colour to remain popular for some time yet. 


With Redheads making up only 2% of the world’s population, it is clear to see that this bold colour can really make you stand out. A growing list of celebrities have taken to red hair, making headlines and redefining themselves. 

If you’re thinking about trying out the trend, there are a few things you should know. First, it’s important to find the right shade of red for your skin tone. You don’t want to end up with a colour that washes you out or makes you look sick. Second, be prepared to commit. Red hair requires a lot of upkeep and regular touch-ups. But if you’re willing to put in the work, you’ll be rewarded with a truly stunning look.


Black hair is an absolute all-time classic. Whether it’s in the form of a sleek bob or long and flowing locks, black hair always looks chic and elegant. If you’re thinking of going black with your hair colour, then now is the perfect time!

There is a reason that black hair has featured prominently for generations. With relatively low upkeep, black hair is sure to go with any style and skin tone. The ability to add a range of highlights to black hair is also a very attractive proposition, allowing you to update your look whenever the mood takes you. 


Silver and grey hair has become increasingly popular over the past few years, and we don’t see that changing any time soon. With a range of shades and an ability to accentuate any style, you can really make a statement with silver hair colouring

If you are thinking of going silver, make sure you speak to your hairstylist first, as it will be important to match your skin tone and avoid washing yourself out. Depending on your natural hair colour, a lot of groundwork may be needed to achieve the desired shade too. You can contact one of our specialist hairdressers here to discuss the best options for you. 


Ombre is perfect for those who want to experiment with colour without going too drastic. Ombre hair is usually darker at the roots and gradually gets lighter towards the ends. This can be achieved with any hair colour, but some of the most popular ombre shades are blonde, brunette, and red.

The low-maintenance nature of Ombre hair is a great way to accentuate your look without the need for a full refresh. This style is here to stay thanks to its use by celebrities such as Cara Delevingne. 

Expensive Blonde

We all know blonde hair will always have a place at the top table when it comes to fashion. A new variation on this classic is ‘expensive’ blonde. What makes it ‘expensive’, you may ask. Well, expensive blonde is all about creating more depth through many fine highlights. These extra hues will give you a more unique look, offering a lot more warmth to your hair than the traditional all-blonde look. 


Rather than being a colour itself, Balayage is a hair colouring technique that offers a more natural look than traditional highlights. Due to the ‘sweeping’ motion of the dye being applied by hand rather than with the use of foil, the colours will slowly fade into your natural colour higher up. This gives the added bonus of being much easier to maintain as you will have a lot less to worry about when it comes to your roots. 

Alongside the above options, hairdressers worldwide have seen an increase in people looking to go darker. Maybe this is due to people embracing their natural hair colour during the pandemic. We may never know for sure, but one thing we do know is that these darker hues can help to accentuate the complexion for some. Whatever hair colour you are going for, make sure to speak to your hairdresser first. Head Office Hair Specialists will be more than happy to give you a consultation before you make the jump. It is important to consider how difficult it may be to achieve and maintain depending on your natural colour, as well as knowing what will best compliment your skin tone, complexion and facial features.
