We’re asking for your best firework-inspired hair color submissions for our first annual Summer Hair Contest at Premier Beauty.
It’s official: summer is here! Enjoying warm weather, spending time with friends and family, and creating life-long memories are just some of our favorite parts of this “gone-too-soon” season. Something we also love about the summer? Finding out what hair trends are here to stay for the next couple of months. So, what’s the hair trend of Summer 2020 that #teamPremier
is most excited about? Well, in the words of Katy Perry
, “baby, you’re a firework. Come on let your colors burst,”.
We’re all seeing fireworks this year, which means vivid, fashion colors are here to stay for the season. Whether it’s powder blue, bright red, or a multi-shaded pink, we are living for the innovative bright colors that stylists are creating for their clients. In fact, we’re so excited that we made Premier Beauty’s First-Annual Summer Hair Contest
a firecracker theme, to see what our stylists/salons can really do with bright, bold shades.
Need some extra inspiration to get the sparks flying? Check out some of the looks that were created using our brands’ permanent
hair products, that will be sure to leave your clients seeing fireworks.
Money Piece but Make It Rainbow
Everyone loves a bright and bold money piece when they’re giving their clients a gorgeous, hand-painted balayage. So why not switch it up and make it multi-colored? This mermaid face frame was created using Alfaparf Milano’s rEvolution and Evolution of Color Harmonizers color tubes. This line celebrates the power of color and the ability to personalize every client’s look with ease of direct placement.
Here’s how Alfaparf Milano’s National Artistic Director, Cassie Siskovic, created this look:
Pre-Tone: Evolution of Color Harmonizers (15g) .02 + (15g) .013 + (60g) 20 Vol. Oxido
High Contrast melt formulas (in order from top to bottom): rEvolution Pastel Peach Quartz, rEvolution (1/2) Pastel Lemonade + (1/2) Yellow, rEvolution (20g) Clear + (6g) Pure Green, rEvolution Pastel Spring Lavender, rEvolution Pastel Sweet Pink.
This hairstylist really did work their magic! This unicorn-inspired look seems like it has been taken right out of a fairytale and we cannot seem to look away. This color was created using Aloxxi’s ULTRA HOT Fashion Color tubes in the shades Midnight in Milan and La Dolce Violet. With easy-to-use, intermixable shades, this fashion color line offers endless possibilities for gorgeous looking hair.

Modern Day Little Mermaid
Even as an adult, a major hair icon that continues to be in everyone’s lives is the famous Little Mermaid’s. There was always something about Ariel’s long, coral hair that always seemed to give us all major hair envy. That’s why when we saw KEVIN.MURPHY’s, Leland Joel Olson’s, creation of this red-haired goddess, our jaws instantly dropped. Using COLOR.ME by KEVIN.MURPHY, Leland created this look by mixing tones of coral, copper, pink and red. Specifically, he mixed 11.0 + CLEAR + 7.64 + YELLOW + RED + CREAM.ACTIVATOR 10 Vol.
