THIS Is Set To Be The Hottest Hair Colour Of 2017 (And We Are Obsessed)

When it comes to keeping tabs on what everyone is obsessing over right this minute – and predicting what we will be obsessing over in the months to come – Pinterest is your best go-to source.

Those little digital pin-boards are a haven for hair, makeup and skincare inspiration – as well as being the most effective procrastination tool ever created – obvs.

And if you are wondering what to do with your locks in 2017 – Pinterest have once again come up trumps by directing us to what is said to be the absolute hottest hair trend this spring:

Ash balayage.

Wait, I hear you say – balayage is not new – sure we all have balayaged hair at this stage.

But  there is a twist, ladies. As in; the golden caramel hues we typically associate with balayage are set to make way for cooler ashy tones in 2017.

Yup. ‘Ash balayage’ – as it has recently been names by hairstylists – starts as any normal balayage hair color would—with dark-toned roots. But then, the hair color gradient shifts toward a lighter, ashy blonde colour, until gradually feathering out into an almost silvery shade.

Need more convincing? Check out just how stunning this hair colour can be – and never mind Pinterest (where is has gone up by a 240 percent search increase, by the way), it looks like Ash balayage is already blowing up on Instagram too:
