Ready for a cut? Considering a new color? Pondering bangs? Before you make a change, consult our cheat sheet of what's in and what's out when it comes to summer hair. We asked New York City stylist and salon owner Paul Labrecque to weigh in on five hair elements: part position, color, length, bangs and layers.
Out: Ashy tones and eggplant hues.
In: Golden sunlight-kissed blondes, brunettes with a caramel glaze and reds with a copper hue, Labrecque says.
Highlights should be infused throughout, not streaky or chunky.
Try: Eva Mendes' caramel highlights.
Eva Mendes' brown locks are ready for summer with subtle but luminous caramel highlights throughout layers.
