Spring 2012 Hair Color Trends

While this winter may have been unseasonably mild, we’re still eagerly anticipating the first days of spring. And for many of us with tired tresses, a change of seasons means it’s time for a change in hair color.

You may even want to try going with a sleeker hair look as well, so be sure to check out some of the best hair straighteners around that promise to give you an ultra-smooth style.

Looking for the latest hair color trends for spring 2012? Clairol Color Director Marie Robinson, who has a loyal celebrity client list including Anne Hathaway, Rachel McAdams and Natalie Portman to name a few, was kind enough to let us in on her secret.  Robinson knows exactly which hair hues are on point this season after coloring models’ hair for the Spring 2012 Catherine Malandrino and Naeem Khan runways.

“We’re going to see a ‘soft all-over glow’ hair color featuring butterscotch and rose gold blondes as well as velvety, buttery brunettes,” she said.
