posted in: Hair | 0

A new decade, a new look! Now that it’s a new decade, it’s time for some changes. Some of us naturally gravitate to change, while for others, a little push is needed! And here’s that little push for you, I’ve brought you the biggest new hair colour trends in 2020! With the right shades and tones, we can definitely amp up our hair game.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a drastic transformation in hair trends, from jet black to ash white hair. From neon coloured hair to pastel shades. We’ve seen a rainbow full of different hair colour trends over the past decade. Hair trends and hair colours don’t entirely go out of trend, but instead, they make comebacks with new techniques.

This 2020, get ready for the extreme reds to the most subtle colours that will take over the hair world. Here are new hair colour trends that are hairstylists approved!

Firey Red

Gingers and red lovers, it’s time to celebrate! Your favourite shade will be poppin’ this 2020. From copper reds and burgundy to ginger brunettes and apricot reds. One thing you can be sure of is that you will find a shade of red that will complement you. 

Rusty Copper

This beautiful burnt red shade adds so much dimension to a look! Copper reds and a few warm ginger hues in your hair will add vibrancy to your life!

Just A Little Bit of Peach

If you’re not ready to have full-blown red hair, try this warm-golden red which is a little more subtle. This shade will be a lot less overwhelming, yet you will still look beautiful.

Burgundy Red

Want to add a little spice? This vampy burgundy red will undoubtedly bring your sultry and playful side out in the open.

Blondes Do Have More Fun

Blondes never go out of style! And they do have a lot more fun. This year it’s all about cooling it down and having effortless-looking colours!

Blonde and Black Roots

Whether you want blonde hair or you already have white locks, this year dark roots is a continuous fashion. The contrast of darker roots to the all-over blond looks effortless and on-trend. 

Ice Cold

Pale ash-blond is the way to go this year. Cooler shades with ashy undertones are your best options when going cool. Make sure to your colourist to tone your hair and neutralise the brassiness of your blonde hair. To add a little bit of a darker shade, add a little beige on your hair.

Buttery Blonde

While ash-blond hair is beautiful, the upkeep isn’t the easiest. If you’re wondering how to amp up your blonde go for a more buttery blonde. With a perfect yellowy blonde that is not brassy, it will be easier to upkeep and look gorgeous. Go hard on the light iridescent gold blonds, light to medium gold, and light to medium warm gold hues!

Beautiful Brunettes

Brown hair colour will also be a trendsetter this 2020. We know how high maintenance blonde hair can be. With brunettes, you can still achieve a fun, and stunning hair look yet, without any of the blondes challenges! 

Mahogany Brown Hair

This hair colour with the deep mahogany base and amber highlights is a beautiful back to basics look. It’s neither too brassy nor moussey, and looks gorgeous on any skin tone!

Chocolate Brown with A Little Splash

A combination of brunette and a little blonde at the ends will look dashing! When you’re not ready for a full-on blonde moment, adding a lighter blonde as highlights will give you a little taste of the blonde life. Your hair will look beautifully textured and volumised! Now, who doesn’t want that?!

Deep Autumn

If you love your dark brown hair, spruce it up a little is by adding warm-toned streaks like caramel, chestnut and auburn shades! It will give your hair more dimension and depth.

Jet Black

For our naturally black-haired ladies, stray no further, black hair is up on trend this 2020. There’s nothing like going back to your roots, especially if you’ve been dying and colouring your hair for years! If you’re transitioning from blonde back to black, you will get the edge back in your look. Not to mention that your hair will also be healthier without all the chemicals that are found in colouring products.

Back to Black

Keep your look simple with jet black coloured hair. Dark coloured hair makes your hair look a lot fuller and shinier. Combine it with a short lob and you’ll steal every show!

Pastels And Blues

All coloured hair will look fun and trendy nearly all the time. But this 2020, lilac and blues (Pantone colour of the year!) are colours you will see popping up everywhere!


This icy purple hue will add an extra oomph to your look this 2020! This colour of purple needs a little more care than most other colours. To take care of your coloured hair, do a weekly mask to neutralise any brassiness.

Blue Black

Since the Pantone Colour of The Year is Blue, you will be seeing blues everywhere. If you’re not ready to go all-out with blue coloured hair, you can always start with a blue ombre at the bottom! This looks sharp and exciting!

Colour Contrasts

2020 is the year for extreme colour contrasts. It’s the year when you should be who you want to be and if bright colours are your thing, then go for it! Contrasting colours will make you look unique and add dimension. If you’re ready to go a little bolder with your hair, try these high-contrast colours. So what exactly is it? It’s adding some lighter hairs to darker hairs to create an extreme, bold contrast. 

Coloured Tips

Not ready to dive into a full-coloured hair? These perfect coloured tips will look cool and edgy! They’re not too much, but they’re definitely there! Match them with the same coloured eyeshadow for a really pretty effect.

Two-Tone Hair

Take Dua Lipa’s hair as some inspiration! The top of her hair is golden blonde and the underneath layer is dark brown. It may sound odd, but it totally works!

Highlight Contrasts

This has got to be one of my favourite looks. It looks so luxurious and posh! To achieve this subtle contrast, try a simple caramel brown hair with blonde highlights all over. You can try this out with whichever colour combination you like. It one of those looks that won’t fail you!

My Thoughts

Hair transformations are fun and exciting! They give you a new feeling to life, and often it’s these relatively small changes that make all the difference to us! So treat yourself this year to a colour change that you’ve always wanted, but never felt brave enough to do! Make this 2020, a year of no fear and social pressures!
