Curl Up And Dye: Our Picks For Fun Hair Colors To Try This Year!
Are you thinking of switching up your hair color? Zano’s hair colorists and stylists are prepared to help you reinvent your look. From rose gold to silver and rainbow, it’s safe to say we’ve seen a surge of eclectic color choices over the past couple years, to which we say: a little color never hurt anyone!
We’re all for taking risks. But, it’s important to take it one step at a time. A drastic color change looks completely different on your head than it does online. That’s not to say it won’t look equally great; it’s just key to take into account your natural hair color, texture, budget, and hair care routine so you end up with a color and style that works for your lifestyle. Instead of diving head first into the color pool, dip in one toe at a time until you’ve reached a color you’re comfortable sporting every day.
Dying for a change? Make an appointment!
For those of you on board with color, we’ve got some examples of the magic our colorists have been able to create with some of our clients.
We’re feeling blue – not sad, we’re just really loving the concept of deep blue tones. Blue is a popular color because it’s often not as harsh or “crazy” as other colors of the rainbow. It can also go with a variety of skins tones and styles. If you’re intent on going blue, make sure it is the right shade of blue: sky blues are more complimentary to lighter natural hair colors, while deep blues (as pictured) work well with darker bases.
Fun fact: Some celebrities who’ve had blue hair are Hilary Duff, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, and Nicole Richie.
It’s as they say: brondes have more fun. “Bronde,” the combination of blonde and brown hair, is the best of both worlds. How to get it? Balayage.
Balayage is a highly popular technique, and one of the most requested in our salon. Balayage is often confused with “ombre.” Balayage is the technique that creates the ombre style. The signature dark-to-light transition of ombre is achieved through the gentle dispersion of color throughout your hair.
The word ‘balayage’ comes from a French term that means “to sweep.” Our stylists apply balayage by sweeping the color through hair in small triangular sections in foil to give it a more natural transition to light from dark. The end result is hair with more dimension and interest.

Today’s forecast: icy, platinum blonde hair. From Kim Kardashian’s internet-breaking platinum bob to Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani, and Christina Aguilera, this near-white shade is making headlines. Despite its ice queen quality, platinum hair adds warmth and opens up your face to accentuate your features. The cold never bothered us, anyway. (Had to).
This cherry-red hue is great for the girl who wants to be noticed. It’s an edgy choice, but if done well, it offer an edge that is sass and class. Not dissimilar to our advice about blue undertones, you have to be sure this is what you want before you move forward. You can get a feel for it first by trying some cherry lowlights in the under-layers of your hair.
