These Peachy Hair Shades Go Above and Beyond Pantone’s Color of The Year

These Peachy Hair Shades Go Above and Beyond Pantone’s Color of The Year

This year, Pantone’s color of the year is a peachy-pink called “Living Coral.” Since January, this cheery hue has popped up in everything from interior design to beverage packaging and all things in between. Here’s how this sunset shade has influenced hair color so far this year, with seven women on Instagram showing off their bright orange, muted pink, and rosy peach dye jobs.

Remember, if your hair isn’t already lightened or naturally blonde, you’ll need to bleach it before you add color to get the desired effect. Looking at these styles, we’d say it’s worth it! Whether the shade is true Living Coral or a neon strawberry, follow these ladies and get some inspiration for your next appointment at Pinup Salon!

Citrus Orange

The vivid orange hue of @therachaeltwist’s hair is definitely a stunning look. Heads will turn and compliments will fly if you decide to go for a hue that’s more clementine than peach.

Pink to Peach Ombre

Ombre looks have been popular for years now, but going from one bright and sassy shade to the next never feels outdated or overdone. Check out the smooth and soft way Charlotte’s (@charliekins82) hair transitions from pink to peach.
