Taking cue from the warm hues so reminiscent of summer, bright, beachy blonde and fiery red colors are trending. Xena Parsons of Sam Brocato Studio in SOHO, New York has taken the summer’s hottest colors and combined them with two style trends that are gaining popularity across the city—new waves and up-sweeps.

A new generation has captured the waves and glamour of days gone by. Day or night no longer defines if the hair is swept up or worn down. Daytime fashion works with an updo or evening fashion can be worn with hair down and waved.

Haircolor is glamorous and gleaming in rich golden blondes and intense copper reds; it only looks like a single process color, subtle tone-on-tone highlights are a departure from the ombre and are a testament to professional, beautiful salon haircolor.
