This month, we’re covering the latest beauty trends, so I’ve rounded up all the gorgeous trending hair colours that are filling our Instagram feeds.

Whether you’re looking to jazz-up your own hair colour, or just want to admire these beautiful shades from afar, periwinkle, apricot, bubblegum rose and chocolate cake are the viral hues you need to know about.


A one-of-the-kind pastel trending hair colour, periwinkle is a dreamy blue shade with purple and lavender undertones. It’s so instagrammable!

If you want to experiment with this colour, why not try Joico’s Instatint Temporary Colour Shimmer Spray in Periwinkle? Non-permanent, this purple-blue spray will stay in your hair for up to three full days. Spray it onto under layers to create high-fashion highlights, or apply it all-over for a bold change. You can then wash it out when you’re ready to go back to a more natural look.

Bubblegum Rose

Bubblegum rose is a gorgeous light pink hue that looks so nice! It’s been one of the most popular hair colours for a while now, with celebs like Arianna Grande, Kendall Jenner and Rita Ora all flaunting the look.

Fancy giving this trending hair colour a go? Try the Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Tint in Bubblegum Rose. Vegan and cruelty-free, this temporary hair dye infuses your locks with a light wash of bubblegum pink colour. It also works to condition and soften your hair for a shiny and vibrant finish.

I think this soft peachy shade might just be my favourite! Slightly more subtle than the other vibrant pastel hues that are trending, this light and orange-y shade brings together copper, pastels and the ombre trend to create one stunning look.

To achieve peachy hair, I’d recommend the Fudge Paintbox Hair Colourant in Coral Blush. A semi-permanent hair dye, it not only colours your hair cuticles a soft apricot colour, but it also conditions and hydrates your strands. Luscious and healthy-looking hair with a lovely peachy flare awaits!

Chocolate Cake

Rich and decadent (like all chocolate cakes should be!), this is one of the most popular trending hair colours of spring 2019 – and it’s perfect for all natural brunettes! Blending a brunette base with warm-toned highlights, it builds multi-dimensional layers that add depth, vibrancy and shine to your locks.

If you want to achieve this gorgeous look, I’d really suggest going to a salon. DIY, sadly, isn’t really an option with this one. If you want to make your chocolate cake colour last longer though, try using Bumble and bumble’s Color Gloss in Brunette. It works to brighten highlights and lowlights, while also enhancing your colour and neutralising brassy tones.

And there you have it Glossies, the four trending hair colours that are making the Glossy Team want to update their looks.
