Summer 2015: Trending Women’s Hair Colors

Whether you’re wanting to have a lot of fun with your haircolor this summer or just spruce up the color you were born with, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE are up-to-date on all the latest summer trends and techniques best suited for you.

Surfer Gold

While this haircolor isn’t anything necessarily new, it is definitely blowing up in a big way this year. With new technology and a knowledgeable Boise hair salon stylist, you can get surfer gold locks no matter what your natural haircolor is!



Wild pastel haircolor refers to any shade that isn’t what you’d call a natural haircolor. Because of this, a lot of people assume it’s a younger style or something you can’t have if you want people to take you serious. Since it’s becoming so popular, it’s really not just the very young who are trying out this fun trend. Pale green, washed-out aqua, blue, pink, and deep purple hair color can be seen all over these days.

Unicorn & Rainbow Hair

A lot of people consider any fun haircolor to be unicorn hair but it can also be two or more bright colors. It can even entail many colors painted throughout. There’s so many more options today to go as bright and bold as you like.

Beauty note: With multiple bright colors, you’ll want to carefully choose products with the help of your Boise hair salon stylist to keep the colors fresh as some shampoos and conditioners will make the colors fade more quickly.

Truffle Brunette


This chocolate truffle-inspired hue may be dark, but the ultra shiny, reflective locks really make the haircolor pop! Rich and elegant, neither too dark nor too light, it’s a dreamy chocolate hue to accentuate your brown eyes.

Rose Gold


Rose Gold, is another great way to go for a more subtle shade of pink. This golden pink color is a highlight that can be used with almost any haircolor to give dull hair a luxurious sheen.   The transition from blonde to pink is almost imperceptible and leaves you with a refreshed summery feel.

Little Mermaid Red


One of the hottest hair colors that are presented this summer is the “Little Mermaid” red haircolor as it makes you energetic and increases your power. You will find it in different shades whether they are light or dark to choose what suits your personality and your skin tone.

Tips to Keep Your Color-Treated Hair Healthy

Summer is one of the most popular times of the year to brighten up your look with sun-kissed highlights or to change the color of your hair altogether! Here at unDONE Salon, we have compiled a few helpful tips to maintain the health of your hair after your haircolor renaissance.

The Dirtier the Better
As weird as it sounds, the less you wash your hair, the longer your haircolor will last. And the longer you wait before shampooing the better chance your new haircolor has to settle in. Washing your hair in hot water will relax the follicle making it easier for the color molecules to escape much more easily. However, when you do wash, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend Davines Minu Shampoo. Ideal for colored hair, its formula is designed to gently cleanse while protecting the haircolor from fading while keeping it shiny for a longer period of time.

Snip, Snip
Naturally, you should trim your hair regularly to keep it looking healthy. As hair grows the ends can get frail and split ends develop (color or no color). Getting a regular trim at unDONE salon can help keep your hair looking healthy. The haircolor process modifies the hair shaft by taking and/or putting color into the strands it’s applied to. So, naturally it’s more important than usual to care for your strands and keep the ends neat. You don’t always need a full haircut; just a trim will do wonders!

Cool It
Another trick for longer lasting haircolor is to rinse your hair with cooler temperature water instead of hot water as this can help your haircolor to stay nice and bold. It also can close down the cuticle to smooth out the hair shaft, making it easier to style and curb the humidity this summer.

Love the Sunshine Sparingly
With warmer temperatures, sun worshiping is probably in your forecast. However, you may want to think twice if you want to stop your haircolor from going sun bleached. Protect your hair and skin by limiting direct sun exposure with sunscreen and/or a wide brimmed hat. Also, if you are more of the pool-type, make sure to protect your haircolor before dipping in chlorinated water by rinsing your hair with clean water pre-swim and adding some leave-in conditioner before taking that refreshing plunge. This will help to protect your amazing haircolor from the perils of salt & chlorine.
