The best way to get a quick fresh change for the New Year is to simply try a new hair color. The right hair color can give us confidence and inspiration and 2014 may involve about lightening up dark locks and blending colors to create natural and gorgeous hair combinations. Here are some color options to consider:
Strawberry and Blonde
An attractive hair color combination for 2014 is strawberry blonde. Both blonde and red is having their moments right now and this perfectly blended combination of the two is a soft and subtle yet bold hair color. If you are considering changing your color there are many different strawberry blonde color options and it’s essential you consider your skin tone when choosing the right shade.
Although red hair is generally accompanied with very fair skin and freckles, the blonde color opens the doors for lots of women to look amazing with strawberry blonde hair.

Also your stylist should use blonde or red highlights that compliment your skins undertones.

This gorgeous combination of warm honey blonde and light brown is one of the hottest hair combinations for 2014. Golden tones are on trend this year this is a timeless and versatile shade of golden blonde with darker undertones.

Blonde has always been reserved for women with cool undertones but the honey and golden shades to this honey bronde color really compliment warmer skin tones. If you have cooler skin tones but want to achieve this trendy bronde color then golden lowlights is a better choice than honey bronde.

Also known as ‘brown sugar’ celebs like Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé showed off this trendy hair color in 2013 and going into 2014 it’s still a hot and desirable hair color combination. Again this hair color is often used to lighten up darker hair but it is best for women with warm skin tones and naturally darker skin.

Brown with Caramel highlights
This hair color combination looks amazing on just about every natural brunette. This is a great way to grow out your ombre or dip-dye hair color from 2013 for a natural and blended new hair color.
The golden undertone of caramel creates a soft and natural look while the subtle highlights throughout the rich brown hair creates the illusion of dimension. This hair color is best for those women with warm skin tones who often have green or hazel eyes because the color will make your eyes pop and really bring out the softness of your skin tones.
Red and Violet
Finally, it’s not all about blondes and brunettes in 2014. Red has been fiery hot recently and it shows no signs of taming it’s flames. This hair color is not characterized by bright copper colors like natural red heads but it has deep dark red primary color with purple undertones.
As red is a warm hair color is looks great with warm undertones but if you have cool skin tones and want to wear red then your stylist should be able to blend a fiery red hair color with undertones that match your skin.
