5 Popular Hair Color Tones For Spring 2016

5 Popular Hair Color Tones For Spring 2016

If you’re looking for a way to brighten up your look in 2016, it might be a good time to try switching up your hair color. Adding some chic tones to your messy mane can give you that beachy look you’ve been after, or maybe a pop of pale pastel pink can give you some fun tussles for Easter! Check out these hair color tone trends for spring 2016.

1. Ronze

This might just turn out to be the year of the redhead. From the red carpet to Pinterest, the ronze hair color trend has been adorning the heads of women everywhere. It’s a middle ground between red and brown that offers a wearable, more dynamic look. Fiery reds don’t always grow out well, and browns can end up looking drab when they lose their shine. That’s where the ronze color comes in, offering a naturally illustrious look that actually requires less upkeep.

If you’re looking for a way to freshen up your complexion, the ronze hair color is the way to go. The deep coppery hues frame the face with a warm and alluring intensity, making the natural beauty of nearly any complexion pop. From skin as fair as Emma Stone’s to Rihanna’s cocoa brown glow, the ronze look has women everywhere stealing the spotlight this spring.

      2. Babylights

      Ombre and balayage were big in 2015, but there’s another trend that’s been gaining popularity since last summer. The look is called babylights, and you’ll probably be seeing it a lot this spring. Babylighting was inspired by the multi-tonal look that children often have in their hair, especially during the spring and summer. To get that look, stylists lighten small strands of hair all over the head and then “root” your hair by enhancing the natural color at the top of your head. This technique creates that fresh-off-the-beach, sun-kissed look that stars like Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz have had recently. An added plus is that it requires very little maintenance, so if you only get your hair done once or twice each year, babylights is the perfect option for you.

          3. Rose Gold

          Lavender and silvery-gray hues were one of the biggest hair trends of last winter. This spring, expect to see people moving away from that trend toward a palette that samples from warm colors rather than cool. For blondes especially, adding some peach or faint rose colors is as trendy as it gets this spring. These soft tones pair well with the beach-inspired hair colors that are also popular right now, and sampling from the light-pink family creates an enchanting mix that’s sure to turn heads. Rose golds and soft corals are a great way to play with a shimmering hair color without risking too much chemical damage. It’s the perfect look for Easter season!

              4. Hair Strobing

              Strobing actually started as a makeup technique that highlighted areas of the face where light hits, and the same concept is being used to make hair pop with an illuminated look. The great thing about strobing is that it’s tailored to the structure of your personal features as well as your complexion, so you’re guaranteed a unique look. Many of the prominent strobing highlights are added to the wisps of hair that frame your face, which makes it an excellent way to accentuate your natural features and bring together your overall look.

                  Not entirely unlike the ombre, the tortoise shell hair style (also known as the Ecaille Blend) uses three or more sympathetic colors to blend into the hair. The result is a mix of compatible tones, giving your hair that can’t-look-away element of glamour and movement. This is also a great option for people with thin hair, because the different hues provide a depth that gives a look of fuller volume. Tortoise shell coloring is an ideal color scheme for brunettes who are looking to experiment with their hair tone while staying true to their natural color, and the dimension of the tones really enhances different styling techniques.

                      Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

                      Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

                      Benjamin Franklin said it like this: “Early to bed, early to rise, will make a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” He knew from his own experiences and watching others that the ones who got up early were healthier and more successful. That’s why a morning workout can be so important.

                      One 2017 study found that:[1]

                      “after controlling for such factors as age, sex, smoking habits, and others…night owls, were found to have a 10 percent greater risk of dying from any cause compared to morning types.”

                      This is a great reason to tap into some morning motivation and get your morning workout done.

                        As you can see in the above graph, your blood pressure begins to rise between 6 and 7 in the morning[2]. That means this is a great time to get your body moving and your heart pumping, even if it’s just for 20 minutes of exercise in the morning. 

                        Advertising

                        Here are some tips on how to find the motivation for a morning workout.

                        1. Remember Your Why

                        It starts with remembering why you want to get up for a morning workout. If you don’t set a goal and establish your reasons for accomplishing a health and fitness goal, then you definitely won’t get up early.

                        Getting up early isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would do it, right? Your goal for your health and fitness must be so strong, and the WHY behind it must be so powerful, that nothing will stop you from accomplishing that goal.

                        2. Go to Bed Early

                        If you want to get up early for a morning workout, it’s going to be important to get to bed earlier. Falling asleep at midnight and trying to get up at six just won’t work in your favor.

                        This will likely be very difficult for a few days while you adjust your sleeping habits. However, as you get into an exercise routine in the morning, this will naturally make it easier to fall asleep earlier and faster at night.

                        3. Make a Commitment

                        I sometimes tell my Facebook community of my plans to work out, and we all keep each other motivated by posting our runs, our workouts, etc. This is a way to develop accountability. By publicly announcing your intentions, you increase your chances of actually carrying out your plans.

                        Another way to do this is to find an accountability partner who has similar goals for morning workouts. You can check in with each other to make sure you’re sticking to your plans. If that doesn’t work, hire a personal trainer for a few weeks to get you started.

                        4. Find a Friend

                        If you can find a friend that is motivated like you are, and you can hold each other accountable daily to working out, then you will accomplish your fitness goals. Many people prefer working out with friends to working out alone. Whether it’s a chat while hitting the treadmill at the gym, or having someone to spot you while weightlifting, working out with friends is sometimes just more enjoyable.

                        Texting each other the night before with a simple statement is best. Don’t ask: “Are we still working out in the morning?” With this kind of question, if they were thinking about not working out, you just gave them an opt out.

                        Make a statement instead: “Can’t wait to see you in the morning!” This implies that they will be there, and they will feel more obligated to show up.

                        5. Treat Yourself

                        We all have to treat ourselves every now and then. After a morning workout, plan to treat yourself with a colorful, healthy breakfast or a delicious morning smoothie. This will help you look forward to something and push through to the end of your workout.

                        6. Change your Mindset

                        Many people throw away the idea of a morning workout by simply saying, “I’m not a morning person.”  Instead of using this excuse, decide to try to become a morning person by shifting your mindset.

                        When you look into the benefits of waking up early and getting some exercise in before your day starts, you’ll feel more positive about your life overall.

                        7. Plan Your Day

                        You know you’re going to be busy. Try time blocking to plan all the things you need to do on a given day, and make sure you add in your morning workout[3]. If you have a plan laid out, you’ll be more likely to follow it and get done everything on your list done.

                          8. Reflect on How You’ll Feel After

                          Starting a morning workout is hard, but visualizing how you’ll feel after can help you find motivation. Think about the extra energy you’ll have and how proud you’ll feel knowing that you were already so productive. No matter what you do the rest of the day, at least you squeezed in your exercise!

                          Advertising

                          For me, I live in an area where there are a lot of runners. When I am heading home in the evening or sitting out on the patio at one of my favorite restaurants, and I see the runners go by, it makes me feel so accomplished that I got mine in that morning and I can enjoy the evening.

                          9. Lay out Your Workout Clothes

                          Setting out your workout clothes the night before makes it impossible for you to start to run late because you couldn’t find something to wear. Tap into the determination you have before bed in order to convince your less-than-motivated morning self that you need to get up and get your morning workout in. When you wake up and see your outfit laid out next to you, it’ll push you to get up and get moving.

                          10.  Set Multiple Alarms

                          Many people miss their morning workout simply because they hit the snooze button so many times. In order to make this more difficult for yourself, set a series of alarms. That way, if you keep hitting snooze, you’ll have three or four alarms going off every ten minutes, which will be annoying enough to get you out of bed.

                          Also, put one alarm at least a few feet from your bed so that you’re forced to get up to turn it off.

                          Final Thoughts

                          About three years ago I went from being the person that says I will never be an early riser to a person that loves to get the day started as soon as possible. Without the distractions that begin to come around 8 or 9 in the morning, you’ll find that you’re more productive and more likely to squeeze in that morning workout.

                          Take some of the actions above and find the best morning workout routine to start your day and feel good.
