Hair Color Trends of 2015

Ever look in the mirror at your current hair color and think, “It’s time for a change”? You aren’t the only one! Sometimes, however, the thought of coloring your hair can be daunting, especially when you factor in the cost of going to the salon, the cost of hiring a sitter for kids while you are at the salon, and the cost of maintaining your new look.

With Ion Color Brilliance, it’s possible to add a little color to your life without exorbitant salon fees. You can easily color your hair yourself in the comfort of your own bathroom. Up for the challenge? First, take a look at few 2015 hair color trends that we love—and get inspired!



This two-tone look is dark on top and light on the bottom. It also allows you time in between colorings, because the color is concentrated far below the root. Lighter hair can also have the effect of brightening your face.


Super bold, popular, and stunning, this look is bright and attention-grabbing! This style looks especially great with short hair, or as highlights with darker blonde accents. Love this bright choice? Try Ion Color Brilliance Permanent Creme Hair Color HL-B Hi Lift Ash Blonde. You can also first lighten hair with Ion Color Brilliance Ammonia Free Lightener and then use Ion Color Brilliance Ion Demi 10A Lightest Ash Blonde.


Showing your roots isn’t taboo anymore, as long as the shades blend a bit! However, if you like to go light in the summer to compliment your sun-kissed skin, you don’t need to worry about your roots showing through. The contrast can be stunning, and the style is bold yet natural—it’s who you are, and it’s fresh and easy.

Unconventional Colors

Unique colors, such as pink and blue, can be vivid and GORGEOUS—especially with all of the unique shades available from the Ion Color Brilliance Contemporary line. If you don’t want to color all over, try these hues with your bangs or at the bottom of your hair, inspired by ombre style. Check out Ion Color Brilliance Brights Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Rose or Cyan.


Highlights can add dimension to your hairstyle and is effective for all hair lengths.  Try matching the color to the natural hue of your skin when choosing the right color for highlights.

Bold Versions of Classic Shades

Bold hair color has always been in style, and if you are interested in trying something completely new, this might be the way to go. As with any hair color, be sure you do a strand test for this first. Let yourself be creative! Think colors like Ion Color Brilliance Demi Permanent in Midnight Blue Black, or even a burgundy red, such as Ion Demi Light Burgundy Blonde.


This new hair color trend accents your hair delicately with blonde highlights near your hairline and throughout the hair. It is designed to mimic the effect the sun had on your hair when you were a child.  The majority of your hair color is still your natural tone.

It’s fun to try out something new, whether it’s a new wardrobe or DIY hair color at home. Ion Color Brilliance has many colors to choose from. New to at-home hair coloring? Check out our guide to mastering your hair color at home here.
