2018 is here and it's louder, bolder, and fiercer than ever before! Hair color has been making waves for the past few years as celebrities, influencers, and stylists give us creative beautiful colors to add to our curls. 2017 gave us deep turquoise and magenta's, but 2018 is going deeper with jewel tones, ombre's, multi-colored hues and more. Any color can be a hard decision for curlies to make since it takes a toll on your curls, but whether it's temporary or long-term, it can always be fun to change up your look. The great thing about hair color this year is the trends have something for everyone whether you want to layer the color's in your hair or have different shades of one color all over. Here at Naturally Curly, we've got you covered with colors to make your curls pop and varied ways to transition into something bolder if you are really want to switch up your hair game.

Why have one color when you can have three? For those of us wanting to go the bright fantasy color route this year, mixing up your hues is the trend to follow. Try a base color for the roots and then switch up the shades with light colors like pink and orange for an explosive dose of fun. You can combine any hue you like, but we're loving this take on rose gold and peach.
