Another day, another sweet hair colour here to convince us that we need a new season shade switch-a-roo. Although Summer may not have arrived yet, this vibrant hue has us dreaming of beachside cocktails. Tequila sunrise is the new hair shade we're obsessing over. Who doesn't want to have hair matching their favourite cocktail? It even reminds us of another metallic colour trend for 2018, gold hair.
If you're unsure about whether tequila sunrise hair will suit you, Kate Reid, Color Me by Kevin Murphy's design director and colourist, says that tequila sunrise as well as coral, tangerine, and metallic apricots are best suited on warm skin tones that appear olive, beige, or golden in colour and typically have green or brown eyes.
But if you don't have a warm skin tone, the look isn't out of reach. Her advice is to be sure to keep some of your natural shade in the hair, even if it's a small amount of regrowth, as this will help to offset the warmer colour choice.
If you want to try tequila sunrise but aren't quite yet ready for commitment, Kate suggests trying a demi-colour as it will wash out fairly quickly. Ask your colourist for Color Me Apricot, which will add luminous shine and a soft metallic apricot shimmer. Sounds just as dreamy as a cocktail in the sunshine!
Read on for some of our favourite tequila sunrise hues so you can rock the sunny colour just in time for warmer weather.
