As a beauty editor, it’s my job to keep you updated on all of the latest hair trends. From the sleekest haircuts to the most sought-after styles, I’m always speaking to experts and filling you in on what to go for. I know I’ve spoken a lot about the biggest hair colours of 2024, but recently, people have been asking me which hair colours I will be avoiding this year instead. In my opinion, hair is totally subjective, and you should choose whatever colour, haircut and style works for you and that you love. That being said, after speaking to the team, it seems that there are a few colours that they’ve also decided aren’t for them in 2024, which I found interesting. I thought you might, too, which is why we’re here. 

From everyone’s suggestions, it appears that we all want to opt for low-maintenance, easy-to-wear hair colours this year, and who can blame us? I personally love a more natural finish, as it means that I can go a little bit longer between hair appointments. If you’re also someone that likes a more subtle look, then I highly recommend that you keep on scrolling to see which shades the team members I asked won’t be asking for this year, caveated by ones they’re into. 

Bleach blonde shades were all the rage a few years ago, but lately, we’ve been noticing a shift, and people are opting for more natural blonde hues and are starting to embrace their darker roots. Our deputy editor, Maxine Eggenberger, is a big fan of this trend. “Personally I wouldn’t go for ashy grey anymore as it feels quite outdated in comparison to the fresher, more natural blondes we’re seeing come through now. Toner might look nice in the moment, but I’ve found my ashy colour fades very fast. So, it’s warm honeyed blonde for me here on out.”

There are lots of ways to achieve this look, from blonde balayage to warm highlights, but always talk to your hairdresser to see what would work best for you.

This colour depositing hair mask from Moroccanoil comes in the most stunning, warm blonde shade for that natural finish.

If you want to give your colour a bit of a refresh, this treatment will help enhance vibrancy.

Remember when everyone was opting for really thick, really bright money pieces? Thick sections of colour that frame your face in contrast to the colour of the rest of your hair. According to our beauty editor, Eleanor Vousden, this trend is going to take a backseat in 2024 as more subtle, face-framing layers take the lead.  

Lots of celebrities are trying out this trend, which involves hints of fresh colour around the face, with a slightly more muted colour throughout the rest of your strands. Hairdressers favour it for the lift it gives and the dimension it has. I love it, too. 

To keep your highlights looking fresh and bouncy, try a detox shampoo like this one from Ouai.

Then, go in with a purple shampoo to help bring the colour to life.

As a naturally dark brunette, I always used to get highlights to achieve more of a light brown finish. However, I’ve been seeing dark, glossy, chocolate brown shades all over Instagram lately, proving that you can and should feel able to embrace your natural hue. For me, I’m now looking for ways to make the most of my dark-brown hair with glossifying treatments and products. 

I love how shiny and healthy this colour makes your hair look, and I’m definitely excited to ditch the bleach and embrace my naturally dark hues.

A hair gloss is a great way to get that rich, shiny finish, and this chocolate shade looks so stunning.

If you want a slightly darker shade, then dpHUE have got you covered.

We all know that celebrities love to dye their hair different colours, and there was a period where pastel lilac shades were taking over. However, Editor in Chief Hannah Almassi won’t be opting for this colour in 2024. “I don’t know if it’s ‘out’, but it’s just not for me.” In the spirit of keeping things more natural, I predict that peach hues will be the new go-to. 

If you didn’t know, “peach fuzz” is actually Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2024, which is another reason why I think this hair colour will be big for spring and summer.

Yep, that’s right, you can even get a peach hair gloss.

The perfect product to add shine and let your hair colour glow.
