Spring is upon us which means it’s time to update our look. One of my favorite ways to get ready for a new season is by modifying my hair color. Now, people who know me well know that the shade of my hair never changes dramatically. I like to think that Anna Wintour knows what’s going on, and if she can keep the same hair color for decades, I too like to think that my hair color never needs to change drastically. So I brighten with highlights and low lights every 3-4 months, and that’s about it!

For 2012, I’m really into the golden and caramel hair color trends. I think we’ve had enough seasons with the cool, ash colored (aka. mousy) hair. It’s time to warm things up a bit…golden, honey and caramel hair colors should make us all look a lot healthier if nothing else. If you prefer highlights and low lights over full color, like me, then maintenance should be minimal. You will be able to stretch out your salon visits like you did with your ombre look.  Here are some of my favorite caramel colors on blondes you know.
