Beauty: 6 Hair colour trends that experts predict are going to be huge in 2019

Bottle green hair

We asked hair experts what colours and dye techniques they predict will be flooding our Instagram feeds very soon. Here's what they said...


The winter trend for green totally reflects the high street fashion wardrobe for the season.mIt has high shine, and looks healthy, vibrant and strong and it can be worn with the gold, wine and pine green fashions of autumn/winter.


Balayage is a freehand technique, as no foils or 'meche' are used to create the highlights. The term comes from the French word meaning 'to sweep' – balayage has softer, less noticeable regrowth lines than traditional highlights, the principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks. You'll need a pro who can do the freehand dying technique, so this isn't one to try at home.


Great for autumn/winter, this look is created by placing panels in the right order and using a blending technique.

Pastel hair


Denim hair was a big hit on Instagram this year, but 2019 is going to be all about petrol blue, a more greenish, saturated shade. If you have naturally dark hair and a deep skin tone you're a perfect fit for this hue. But if you want the colour to last, you may have to bleach your hair first.

The rich, cherry-esque shade is a nod to the 80s that can be worn with most of the season's fashion trends. It looks great with dusty pink, winter green and lavender.

Cerise pink hair


For a gentle transition into the new season, shadowy roots are starting to make an appearance. Placing some subtle highlights around the face make this look more polished and deliberate, rather than grown out neglected roots. For blondes, that means more neutral tones, neither warm nor cool, fitting with the deeper roots.
