From Kim K’s New Ombre to Amanda Seyfried’s Nude Hair, celebrity hairstylist reveal the secret to the Cool-Girl hair trends for Summer 2016.

Cool-Girl Hair

Beach weather is so close we can feel it, which of course = new dye job lust. Whether you’re feeling something subtle like Kim K’s fresh approach to the ombré or want to hit the peroxide like there’s no tomorrow (healthy hair be damned!), there’s an of-the-moment color trend to guide you. Here’s to making summer 2016 one for the hair-transformation books.

PEWTER BLONDE

A platinum dye job that skews *slightly* silver for a more rock 'n' roll vibe, it's not easy to pull off and typically suits olive complexions best. We like how J-Law has warmed things up with hints of gold around the face.

JET-BLACK

If you want to buck the norm completely, go for a matte, jet-black dye job. It's inherently sleek and looks killer with a sun-kissed glow as told by RiRI. Plus, it's way less maintenance if you've got naturally dark hair.

CREAMY BLONDE

Yes, golden hues are tempting during the warmer months but there's something strikingly understated about a creamy, milky white blonde. Plus it's flattering on *all* skin tones.

AUBURN BALAYAGE

Monotone dressing is practically a way of life in Hollywood these days, so it was only a matter of time before neutral-hued hair became a thing. It looks good with *all* complexions because it's meant to mimic your natural color. Makes sense, no?Monotone dressing is practically a way of life in Hollywood these days, so it was only a matter of time before neutral-hued hair became a thing.

THE NEW OMBRÉ

A "revamp" of the traditional ombré, colorist Cesar Ramirez created this look by painting on tone-on-tone highlights then adding some bolder pieces to frame the face. A bit more subtle, but equally as cool. We love this 2016 approach.
