Getting some new and refreshed color for your hair is one ways of keeping your look updated and fresh. For the hair color trends this 2011, hair stylists have indicated that strong haircuts along with bold hues take the cake.
White blonde (just like Marilyn Manroe) has been one of the biggest trends during the New York Fashion week. Hair stylists have associated this bold shade with "sex appeal" and "daring." Sporting this hair color with an edgy pixie cut or full-length wavy mane should keep you in style during the summer and the coming fall.
You can also explore other shades of blonde which are still more on the "natural side." Vanilla and strawberry shades are very suitable for the summer look. Wearing these colors with braids or loose waves is a very girl-next-door, hip look. Consult with your hair salon before doing anything drastic. Make sure you pick a shade that suits your features and skin tone.
Also, hair stylists have been raving about wearing light shades of blonde with dark roots. It is recommended that if you do decide to go with this trend, make sure you go to a reputable hair salon that does this type of hair color styling. The key is DRAMA! The combination of white blonde hair with dark roots is dramatic in itself and there's no way to go but up from this point. Sharply layered short hair or long hair is a good combo.
BROWNS AND BRUNETTES
Brown and brunette hair colors are the easiest to wear and style, according to a survey among women. It suits any skin tone and is friendly to almost any classification of features. Caramel and dark brown hair colors are still in for 2011. The best way to wear it for this season is either sleek and straight; or big and wavy.

This color is ideal for women on-the-go and just wants minimum effort for maintenance. Any haircut can adapt to any shade. But if you want to style things up for special occasions, loose up-dos and minimal hair accessories should do the trick. On the other hand, sporting hats and beanies are the accessories for the casual chic chicks.
Red hair color is big this year. Celebrities like Rihanna have been going bold with red and it's going to catch on for the rest of the year. Hair salons carry numerous shades of red and choosing the right hue for your skin tone and facial features is important. Red-orange shades and hot reds are the ones you want to look for if your aim is to really stand out. However, if you want things to be more subtle, getting a few highlights could be up to your pace. However, a full head of a single bold color is the big trend for the year. A pale skin tone is perfect for this hair color.
Black hair color will remain a classic go-to for the hairstyle savvy girl. This color is timeless, but to make it more high-fashion, give yourself an edgy haircut such as blunt bangs with a very short bob. Sleek and straight is the way to go in terms of hairstyle. A structured haircut is the most suitable partner for a jet black hair this 2011.
